"It was this major emotional crisis breakdown," Smallegan said

It's Facebook chill the fark out.

/I was thinking of joinning Facebook but i think i'll pass.
//I'll wait for the next thing to come along

So, instead of young people wearing each others' class rings or going to formal balls or whatever, they're announcing their couplings on Facebook.

It's not like the kids are saying anything new or surprising, they're just using computers to do it. Just like with anything else. Then again, it's not news, etc.

You know it's over when you're no longer listed as "in a relationship."

From TFA:

"Putting it on Facebook made it official," said Zell, who had a "serious sit-down relationship talk" with his girlfriend last year after two or three months together. They made a joint decision to put "in a relationship" on Facebook, and link profiles.

These people are our future.

FTFA: "I have NEVER changed my Facebook status -- it has always been single, even when I started to get involved with girls. I think it's better this way, until you are VERY serious, because people look, people talk, etc., and unless it is super-serious it can ruin any chance with any other girl!"

This.

How is this more stupid than "pinning?"

Although to have a "relationship" ruined because one person wanted to state it online and the other didn't is pretty dumb. I guess it takes pretty weak real-life communication.
 
2007-12-05 07:44:50 AM
Do the sensible thing and remove that Relationship status thing from your profile altogether. Everyone who matters knows anyway and no one else cares. You don't have to broadcast every little thing about you to the whole planet, you know.

Lord, thank you for intelligently designing me when you did. I might die 10 years or so sooner than these choads but at least people my age aren't referred to as the MySpace or Facebook generation.

I think you'd like it better here.

added Smallegan, who had posted a relationship on Facebook once before, only to have that girl move out of state and break up with him via a text message on his cell phone.

Ouch

I see. It's different now.
 
2007-12-05 08:01:46 AM
If I ever reached a point where I was crying over a status change on Facebook, I think I'd shoot myself. This is kinda pathetic.


640wqbr: First?

This is also pathetic.

UontaG: Robo Beat,

Well, if you're out there, could you maybe put away the leaf blower and roll up the hose? Thanks.

Still better than being called The MTV Generation.

Why must we associate generations with such trivial things?

For my generation, love came with a pop up, not a drop down.
 
2007-12-05 08:26:52 AM
I'm tired of hearing about professors who are "experts" in "online networking", or "community bulletin boards", or whatever.

Half the crap they come up with anyone my age could've just told them, and it would've saved the universities some funding money. But no....... we have to analyze it as it's happening, by God. And then fret and worry and cluck our tongues and stroke our beards and talk about "what's to be done with this younger generation"?

We'll figure it out, thanks. Oh, and all that BS you gave us in DARE? Yeah, um, we Googled it and found Erowid.

On the plus side, as soon as I don't know the random online fad-of-the-moment at least 3 months before the New York Times gets to it, then I'll know I'm old. Or getting tired of the internet. In any case.

That is so full of awesome.

This would be an improvement for most farkers, as their girlfriends are usually over IM. :)

"Then the two of them were in cahoots to make this guy's life miserable," Ellison said. "So if you are in a relationship and it's listed on Facebook, don't cheat."

Ummm, let's make this really simple, so that everyone can understand:

Don't cheat.


Facebook is a communication tool, nothing more. I haven't joined (despite numerous invitations), and I ain't a-gonna. It's too damned open; I've helped several people 'opt out' of supplying all that info to the world. (Yes, some people don't realize how to do that...)

/has there been any more info about the idea to make Facebook Google-searchable?
 
2007-12-05 08:34:06 AM
What a farking pathetic generation.
 
2007-12-05 08:42:31 AM
god fark all of you, stop trying to analyze the shiat out of everything

Why yes it is my Boobies of the day, thanks for asking.

I envisioned the Buddy Hackett chinese waiter after reading the headline, "1 from column A, 2 from column B, no split pea..." A sort of sexual smorgasboard, if you will. Anyone else with me on this one?

What do you mean, "Who is Buddy Hackett?"

/LawnOff, apply directly to kids.

How about the girl who broke up with her boyfriend via facebook? (pop)

What,text message was to good for him?

techmom: Facebook is a communication tool, nothing more. I haven't joined (despite numerous invitations), and I ain't a-gonna. It's too damned open...

If everyone you know already knows the information you want to keep hidden, it's no longer yours. Even if you don't have an account on Facebook that information can be shared with others. In that case, it's rather silly to worry about its openness. At least by playing the game you can choose how that information is presented.

Myspace + Facebook = any guy trying to work multiple girls nightmare!

do yourself a favor, delete your facebook and myspace accounts. People will find you much more interesting if they can't stalk you.

But I like my stalkers.

Yeah, hence why i just have a general account for myspace for my website. And facebook lets you be private about your stuff to an extent.

Facebook and Myspace = Attention Whore

Why do you need all your info out there?

Because you are an attention whore!
