Before I got the iPhone, I wanted Instagram … I wanted it badly, because «everybody else» seemed to have it, except me! What a child I am … at this ripe, old age! Guess I just didn’t like the idea of being excluded. Eventually, I got an iPhone and subsequently signed up for Instagram, but by then, Facebook had bought it, it was free for anyone with any smartphone to use … all of a sudden it didn’t feel all that interesting! Must have been some psychological thing. I still have a hard time remembering to use it. It would probably have been different, had I been in there from the beginning … built a circle of contacts and all that.
Occasionally, I read those prompts that WordPress posts … when you’re at loss for something to blog about. The other day the prompt was: «_____ is the new _____». As soon as I saw it, a thought came to mind: «Unfriend is the new FU [eff you]». You have to be a Facebook user to get that one I guess, and I never posted it.
I’m so curious to see, in, say five years time … if we’ll look back in amazement and say ‘Remember when all the people used Facebook?!’ Right now it shows no signs of slowing down, even though I read that many teens are leaving the site because their parents and grandparents are there.
