    it looks at friends of friends and the networks you belong to

    For instance, I go to CSULB which has close to 40,000 students, and I belong to the CSULB network on facebook. Just because I go there and am part of the network, facebook assumes I may (want to) know a bunch of the other shmucks I fight over parking spots for

    This feature brought to my attention that one of my friend's sister is kinda hot, which weirded me out.

    Perhaps we should write letters? That would be fun. We could send them on the Pony Express and wait a month for another letter gets back to us.

    In all seriousness though, it is not the concept of social networking sites that is stupid, it's just the way they are implemented (like MySpace) and used that is.

    But yep, you caught me, I am an old grumpy bones internet nerd who still uses IRC instead of instant messengers.

    I don't use instant messengers because I'm lazy. I generally use the facebook chat feature for the few people I desire to talk to for longer than "hey, how are you" "good" "ok."
    And, yeah... myspace got pretty gayed up. I've come to enjoy facebook, though.. I have blocked apps, so I don't experience the gay.

    People prefer Facebook/Myspace over AIM because they think that it's a mark of social dignity how many "friends" you have and all the comments/wall posts that all these "friends" put on your page for the entire world to see.

    ^^ That's gay. Whoever cares to see how many posts another person has in his profile needs to get a life.

    That's pretty much the function of those sites: for people to desperately try to prove to the world that they have lives.
