Farcebook probably started as a really good idea - but then the morons arrived and judged their worth by their "friends" count; changed their relationship status every ten minutes to indicate to the world that they had an active sex life, if only in their imaginations; posted pictures of their breakfast; and generally indicated to that part of the world which could be bothered that their IQ was smaller than their shoe size and dropping rapidly. And the morons rule, because advertising cr@p to 1,000,000,000 morons is a lot more financially rewarding than advertising relevant stuff to 12,000,000 intelligent people. So Farcebook lower the bar each time, and the average user IQ drops to the point where the rare intelligent comment is swamped into near oblivion. Twatter is the same.

Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
Sorry. It did not. It was original created and used to mark people as "hot" or "not". It was a lame idea and has been transformed into an even more lame idea. But, now that it's worth $50 bajillion everyone is like, "it's genius!! Right?!"
Totally, it's unfortunate, but all I see is "look at me, look at me" narcissistic type stuff on it now. We've gone from a world of taking pictures of the world to taking selfies of ourselves. Because God forbid I experience something without having other people on FB drooling over it. Anything of substance on there gets ignored... but post a butt pic or cats or a selfie then boom, you get some FB loving.
I suppose there's a place for it in the world, but I feel dumber every time I allow myself to stay on it and read crap.
