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.

Like it matters but it matters to me, does that make sense? Two maps identical. Except the one on top was Syria. See that? The one on top was Syria in November of 2016," Trump said. "This is all ISIS. On the bottom, today, the caliphate is gone as of tonight. Pretty good. That is pretty good, right?"

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

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.
