Facebook... officially lame
 
I see that a couple of days ago my mom joined FaceBook and wants to be my friend now. It's all over. I long for the halcyon days of college-only Facebook.

Due to my mother's presence FaceBook is now officially lame. TrekBBS appears to still be safe.

You laugh now. Just wait until your dad signs up.

Dad already signed up. That I can deal with though as he didn't try to friend me.

There was a story on the Internet the other day about a woman who realised her relationship with her daughter had fallen apart after they had an argument and then discovered that her daughter had removed her as a friend on Facebook.

You befriended your kids yet?

Nope. Not a chance in hell. I give them their space, I'm by no means a "clingy parent".

I still have my mom's friend request unanswered. As long as she doesn't start asking questions or disowns me, that's fine by me!

Some time ago she mentioned to me if I knew someone nicknamed Ominous Squirrel.. I went :borg: and just ignored her. I later found out, she had googled my msn email address, and found trekbbs (it was halloween at the time). I removed it after that! But I'm still worried... maybe she's lurking... :eek:

Facebook has been lame since they let high schoolers join in 2006 or so. :borg:

Facebook is safe for me - though both my parents have me on Bebo. Considering the amount of sleaze I speak on there, I'm glad my mother can't remember her password. Though it's the primary communication with my father.

A couple of years ago I read a report that had me in stiches.

A journalist, a paid professional journalist, reported that wrestler Test and Kelly Kelly had just started a relationship. His proof? This paid professional journalists proof that this entire article was based on? She made him his top friend on MySpace.

^:lol:

It's actually true though, they only recently broke up (apparently because he's not dealing very well with her being still in the wrestling business while he's not getting any bookings).

Oh you have just given me the most fun idea :guffaw:. My son is going to hate you :D

Yeah, it's still lightyears better than My Space ever was. But two things made me think twice about it.

1) My friend's 12 year old daughter sent me a friend request.

2) My high school drama teacher sent me a friend request and then promptly described me "beefy."

I still flat out refuse to Twitter. That's really fucking lame when we hear about US congressmen Twittering during the president's address. And it's shit like "all the senators got the good seats."

This a better story- A man murdered his estranged wife after becoming "enraged" when she changed her marital status on Facebook to "single"

Bit mental
