A couple of my friends have already done so actually, plus I've noticed lame-ass aspiring hipsters wearing 'No I'm Not On Fucking Facebook' Tee-Shirts.
(I don't know whether they're being serious or just adhering to that whole 'decrying what you're complicity part of' thing i.e wHo ThE fUck aRe eNtER ShIKarI? or DENIM IS DEAD - self-rebellion?? wtf, so glad i'm not a teenager.)
Could this be the trend I've been waiting for for the last four years?
It really got to me how many of my friends live vicariously through Facebook. I mean, how desperately insecure is it to take your camera with you EVEN WHEN YOU GO TO THE FUCKING SUPERMARKET so you can fabricate a 'wacky' incident with Kinder Eggs in Aisle Seven to show people just how surreal and interesting your life is - yeah you should have your own TV programme mate! TESCOLOLS! FUCK OFF
or, constantly updating your profile and recording/ taking pictures at gigs rather than actually, enjoying the gig? Since when did showing people how much you enjoyed yourself displace actually enjoying your life? when?
No matter how people deny it I feel like Facebook is so popular because it feeds off people's insecurities and enables folk to project an idealised version of themselves. Well Fuck you Facebook. I'm tired of moaning so I've done what Gary Linekar would be proud of. I've been fouled, but I won't retaliate. No. I've just nutmegged every player on the pitch and scored my dream goal.
I'm looking forward to the 'I Heart 2000's' future-nostalgia programmes where a 35 year old Peaches Geldof sits around saying 'oh my god, we all had social networking pages, do you remember that? haha, I LOVED THEM< BRING THEM BACK! ' and i can sit there triumphantly chewing my spacedust knowing i hated the fucking thing all along.
