I use facebook because not everyone that I want to throw up on will come to my house.   :)

I see a lot of people clicking "I'm Attending" and not showing up, though.

Yeah, but if I'm really concerned about it I can always message them to make sure.

Troof. And after awhile you can weed out the "LOOK AT ALL THE COOL PLACES I HANG!"* people anyway.

It's like a concentrated and minimized version of real-life social interactions, translated into Internetese, without any of the fun of being with people.

So are phone calls.

Authenticity is so 90s.  8)

'Course. I have no illusions that socializing was/is any more authentic without Facebook*. Just whining about things I've noticed about it.

*It's just the next step of telecommunication. So...I guess it were the damn smoke signals that started it all! :argh!:

Authenticity is bullshit anyway.  It is the enemy of Slack™, and the first step to hipsterist damnation.

DAMNATION, I SAY!
Well, that's hardly my fault.  I was just doing what I do, doing my little dance, singing my little song, you know?  And then Hirley0 got on the dance floor and said

SHAKE THAT
First ^  Then V

And I did.  I didn't feel like I had any choice.  Between P-Funk and Hirley0, I became the man reptillian menace I am today.

Bootsy Collins did this to me.

I was into being authentic before it was big and popular.  Now I'm all about ironic insincerity.

I just go there for Farmville. 

I let Enabler use my account to cheat at farmville.

This has the added advantage of me getting dozens of angry/disbelieving messages, when she sends out invites.
