Facebook Mania / Maniac

Sorry to the addicts of Facebook and my friends in the Facebook … I have to confess that I am not a fan of Facebook. I joined it around 6 months ago when it was not at all popular in town, mainly to connect to my MBA classmates … However, it looks like a hot site recently, for example, all the computer magazines in town had articles about Facebook two weeks ago.

To be honest, I still don’t quite “get it” … I am sure all those nifty and cute applications add a lot of fun … but why spend all the time to play around with those ? Many times, I think the Facebook emails in my inbox are as bad as those spam mails. May be one day it will have business applications in it and can replace all the tools around … then I will spend more time with Facebook.

On the other hand, if we see it from technical angle, Facebook did a great job to build the platform, open it up to application developers. And their recent mobile version is also pretty good … I just found it out during my stay in hospital 😎

  1. Agreed. I just joined facebook for a week because some people around talking about it and so curious to have a look why it so popular for teenagers. And also see the “Old Cakes” like me can join this society. I also found myself “lost” in facebook for the first few time access and hate so many “applications” there. I wonder what so funny to send an application to “Poke” your family. However, I reckon that this is the way of communication inside the society where the “old cakes” is either adopt it and or leave it. You may also be classified as “old cakes”.
