how i feel about it sometimes: facebook edition

22 March 2009


oh, i find this so hilarious.

so what’s the proper etiquette nowadays? my vote is for acknowledging that you remember something like what the person said on their blog/facebook/twitter/whathaveyou, as to indicate that you read the drivel they post on the computer in a sign of admiration, then let them completely retell you the entire story with details while you listen rapturously, because you are totally friends in real life and that’s what friends do.

because i loooooove it when people read my blog.  i do, i’ll admit it.  but i love seeing my friends in real life (apparently that is IRL in internet and 14-year-old-text-message speak).  i want one foot firmly planted in both lands.

well, what do you think?

    I am with you. That is hilarious, and often the case… IRL. For me, facebook is about cultivating and not replacing face-to-face relationships/friendships. Because of human nature, I crave the “real life” interaction and the gritty details of life, but I will say facebook has opened the door to unexpected friends, such as yourself. For that, I agree that a foot in both worlds is what works for me as well.

    Also, I love reading your blog but have to admit that I try to keep my comments to a minimum because half the time I always want to say “that’s hilarious”… or, “so true!” to many of your posts. Just know that the ones I didn’t comment on, I am most likely nodding my head and smiling at your viewpoint. 🙂
