What is facebook?

What is facebook?
I am usually very literal, so I should just stick with that. But I haven't been.
Facebook is commonly known as "social networking". And it is that. You meet all kinds of people and you network with like minded individuals. In my case, that means writers and music lovers.
But most of us treat facebook as a social interaction tool. It could be that, and sometimes it is. But it is not meant to be that, and everyday facebook proves that out.
To use it to make new friends and contacts is great. To use it to interact with others is foolish. There has got to be a better way to interact, and due to the way Facebook Admins have been administering the tool lately, I am making a plan to do that.
I simply cannot waste time trying to use the tool when it wont work the way I want it.

  1. Excellent point! FB is forcing us to interact the way it thinks we should. Trouble with that is that we are not all faceless nerds with no life who sit in front of a computer all day, writing code.
