Girls Write Out
Sunday, August 15, 2010

It's hard to remember what life was like before facebook, isn't it? Social networking has completely changed the way we connect to other people. In fact, I'm starting to wish we could carry some facebook features over into real life. If only there was a hand-held device we could carry with buttons we could push to make things happen. Think about it.

Put your foot in your mouth? Remove. Gone, just like that.

Approached by a lotion-squirting mall salesperson? "Would you like to try some--" Ignore.

Friend who only talks about her brilliant toddler? Unfriend.

Talking to a cute guy at a party and afraid to ask his religious beliefs? Religious views.

Having an awkward How do I know you? moment? Friends in Common. Oh yeah, she's from that class I took!

Lonely? Find Friends and there they are.

Running out of small-talk ideas with a new acquaintance? Info. What do we have in common . . .

Need to be alone? Privacy.

Not looking your best today? Change Picture.

Bad memory keeps resurfacing? Next!

Want to inform your boss of your recent accomplishment? Tag.

Get separated from your buddies in a crowd? Find Your Friends.

Suspect a friend blabbed your secret to someone else? Recent Activity.

Tired of making small-talk at an business function? Offline.

Approve of your wife's new hairstyle? Like.

Okay, maybe we need an app with a flashing beacon to alert the husband that his wife got a new hairstyle. But seriously, see how handy it would be? So if you figure out a way to make Facebook Live happen, can you please post the directions? I'll be sure and like it.

This is hilarious! You should submit this to a magazine or something.

Good ideas and points. I guess this is why actual person to person socialization is decreasing. It really is simpler on Facebook. :)
