I wouldn’t be getting emotional about it, if I weren’t over-using it, would I?
It seems to me that facebook is like a social gathering where most guests are standing alone talking to the space a foot in front of their faces. They don’t make eye-contact with anyone. They all hold a photo album and turn the pages, pointing sometimes to a picture. Occasionally a passer-by will stop and look at a photo, or listen to an individual’s dialogue, but most of the time words mingle and dissipate into the room to become an incoherent buzz – just the noise in a hive.
