Its come to this……FACEBOOK!

March 2, 2009

So, many of us 40 somethings have spent the past several years ripping Facebook and its time stealing, obsession inspiring elements, right? Our children were zombie slaves to it, stalking the web in search of the latest beer bong pictures of their friends. How many debates have we had on the pros and cons of “sneaking” onto your child’s Facebook to see what is REALLY going on.

Like so many things with our generation, we have made it our own. We are all pretending we didn’t really want to join, but were “friended” so often, we just did it to be polite. But right there on our walls is the proof-the logged time spent engaging in Mafia Wars and being Geo Challenged, multiple links with friends from a long ago uncomplicated life, and hours spent trying to put the fricking profile picture up!

Confession of the newly zombied-I felt that funk that I have watched my kids experience the other weekend when a “friend’s” status showed a gathering I was not included in! Please…..its come to this?

Upside, I am sure we have scared our children off of their beloved space.

So, are anyone else’s kids having the last laugh on the Facebook topic like mine??
