~ Apparently Facebook and Instagram went inoperable last night. Had the NEWS media not alerted me I never would have noticed. Isn’t it interesting that this is a national NEWS story? Or rather, let me ask the question; is this REALLY worthy of being a national NEWS story?
Facebook, more specifically social networks, have changed our lives. At least for those of you who are on them all day long. I myself send Tweets from my phone occasionally, but other than that, I spend NO time on social network sites.
“But Kenneth, isn’t your blog a social network type site?” you might ask. Well, the problem is that the term “social network” is a bit ambiguous. Like other semantical issues there is a major element of subjectivity when it comes to defining what exactly a social network is, and what isn’t a social network.
Suffice to say, I don’t hate Facebook. Yet neither do I like it. I guess you could say its like my Aunt Agatha I see at Thanksgiving every year. My Uncle Bob used to say, “Kenneth, it doesn’t matter whether you like or not, she’s always going to be there so you better get used to it”.
