The problems with Facebook...

Don't get me wrong I love Facebook - where would I be without it? I'd be in blissful ignorance about Knight's girlfriend but I would still have a large Facebook-shaped hole in my life. Nonetheless there are some things which are flawed with Facebook which I shall outline...
1. A thought occurred to me last night at prom when I saw The Populars; I had some of the guys on Facebook and I had never spoken to them in my life. So why is it that on Facebook it says we're "friends"?! It makes no sense!
2. It has replaced human interaction. If I want to talk to my friends I don't call them, I can just Inbox them. Eurgh. Call me old-fashioned but I miss the times that people would send letters and meet up with each others. OK I'm old-fashioned.
3. It leads to obsession. With this I am referring to the tendancy we all have to Facebook Stalk people we
A. Want to be/are jealous of.
B. Fancy the pants off of.
C. Hate/loathe.
Now I for one know that my Facebook stalking has been rather obscene lately. My stalks on certain people's girlfriends have become so bizarre that I feel I know them. And don't like them.

I'm afraid I really must go now - I only got 4 hours sleep last night - what with my friends insisting we watch Women In Black at 1AM in the morning! Don't get me wrong, Daniel Radcliffe is huminahuminahumina-aaah but creepy suspense music and frequent screams do not make it easy to sleep!
Keep you posted,
