I found out today, that, contrary to popular opinion… I am NOT an old fogie! What proof, you ask? You none other than TIME magazine itself says so! They have a new article called “Why Facebook Is for Old Fogies.” And, since I am not on Facebook, and have no plans to be on Facebook, I am NOT an old fogie! Infallible logic!
You see, as a web host and webmaster, I am already master of my own domains (get it?!) So, I am down wit’ the “in crowd!”
“Facebook is five. Maybe you didn’t get it in your news feed, but it was in February 2004 that Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg, along with some classmates, launched the social network that ate the world. Did he realize back then in his dorm that he was witnessing merely the larval stage of his creation? For what began with college students has found its fullest, richest expression with us, the middle-aged.”
Author, Lev Grossman, goes on to give his 10 reasons that Facebook is for old fogies… but I especially like number 10:
“10. We’re not cool, and we don’t care. There was a time when it was cool to be on Facebook. That time has passed. Facebook now has 150 million members, and its fastest-growing demographic is 30 and up. At this point, it’s way cooler not to be on Facebook. We’ve ruined it for good, just like we ruined Twilight and skateboarding. So git! And while you’re at it, you darn kids better get off our lawn too.”
