I've written quite a lot here about Facebook over the last few months. Not because everyone else seemed to be obsessed with this social network, but because I was genuinely interested in it. And when I'm interested in a new technology, I like to immerse myself in it as deeply as possible. And after the huge disappointment that was MySpace, Facebook came as a relief.
Like many people, I started out by trying to get as many "friends" (we desperately need a better term for these social network links) as possible, but after one of my invitations was rebuffed by a blogger who told me she only approved friend requests from people she'd actually met, I came round to that point of view and pruned my list severely.
Of late, the Facebook bacn has started to get a little wearing, but the fact is, there are only so many hours in a day. So I've decided to stop updating my Facebook status, and use the time for something else. Like blogging.
And the Facebook backlash starts to gather pace.
