Let me start out by saying that I don't even have a Facebook account, not a personal one, not a business one, not one for the kittens. No Facebook for me. Why? I don't know. I'm kind of a hermit in real life. I'm a social introvert. There are many people I love and communicate with and even socialize with. I don't need to network socially. Something about Facebook just gives me a bad case of the nopes. Plus, the last thing I need is one more place to sign in every day and check to see what I'm missing. I can't keep up with everything now!
Then, I saw the movie The Social Network. It was a great movie. Beautifully written, sharply directed with great acting and fantastic music. But what a miserable bunch of people! Geez! To think that people with such terrible social skills created this social network that now connects millions of people. The only likeable character who seemed to be having fun was Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake), and he was a paranoid charlatan, more or less.
I know, I'm the only person in America between the ages of eight and eighty-eight who doesn't have a Facebook page. And that's going to have to be okay. I don't answer my cell phone when I'm driving either.
