Facebook, an online Deadzone / shrinkwrapped cybergraveyard w/in 18 months, or just wishful thinking on my part?

a few niggles about privacy ain't gonna stop this baby in its tracks. it TOO big to stop now. hell, even my wife and her mates are on it. my eldest son wants more than anything to be on it. apparently i'm holding back his social life, even tho i'm always trying to get him off his backside to go and call for his mates.
and as for your partner in crime...well the farmer's a total facebook whore-bitch

"well the farmer's a total facebook whore-bitch" LOL.

I get asked about three times a week why I'm not on Facebook.

"it TOO big to stop now." Au Contraire, Nick: It's TOO big to keep going.

I think we're starting to see the end of the upwards surge / plateau. The next wave of people are exiting / migrating out (there was an outwards movement a year or two ago, when older people started using it). The Farmer's eldest and mine are both desperate to get on there, but remember this: kids are fickle. In the same way that Bebo 'died' so will Facebook. Do you think kids want to be on the same system as farts like us?? Something with a cool name will come along and sweep it away.It's like yer grandad wearing jeans, innit.

Murdoch thought MySpace was unasailable; that's why he bought it. Hahahaha.

(Still great for music, tho.)

These things are still relatively new/young, so the idea of fashion-waves / cycles hasn't kicked in yet where social messaging sites are concerned.

Something stranger/edgier/more customisable is almost certainly just round the corner.

Just came across John Friend on Facebook. By accident I assure you.
Still, it's the first genuine Evil Genius I've come across on the World Wide Web.
Exiting in a stroking a white cat kind of way.

That should read 'exciting', not exiting. Though the latter had a weird kind of poetry to it.

Was only talking about John Friend a few days ago. To Bren, I think.
