Meet Kacie. The last Facebook hold out I know. It used to be Joey, Christine and Kacie, but slowly the other two have crossed over to the dark side. Kacie somehow remains strong and steadfast in her non-FB-using convictions.
So, I’ve decided to give Kacie 5 reasons it’s time to wave the white flag. In no particular order…
1. PICTURES – I’ll never again start a sentence with “How was your trip to _______.” Instead, I can say, “OMG I saw the pictures of you and Bill rock climbing in Tahiti, weren’t you scared of the wild mountain goats?”
2. STATUS UPDATES – When we meet for our sushi dinners we can let all the world know via status update. Then our other friends will be jealous they weren’t invited and wonder why they’re not as cool as us.
3. RELATIONSHIP STATUS – How else will I know when you get engaged?!? Ok, well I would hope that you’d call, but without Facebook, how else can we stalk the engagements and weddings of other people we kinda know but wouldn’t be invited to their wedding???
4. One word – POKE
5. NO MORE WONDERING – No more “I wonder what my BFFL from 4th grade is doing now…” You’ll friend them on FB and know exactly what they’re up to. In fact, you’ll probably get sick of knowing what they’re up to because who really cares about their BFFL from 4th grade? But it’s always fun to find out that the 6th grade Queen B is now an L7 weenie. And yes, I did just write L7 weenie.
Ooooook, so maybe there aren’t amazing reasons to join Facebook. But I will tell you this – I feel like I’m in much better touch with Christine and Joey now that they’re my Facebook friends. Which is weird, since I live with Joey…
Oh this crazy digital world we live in.
