What is the point of Facebook?
What is the point of Facebook? Seriously, what am I supposed to be getting out of it these days? I know I check it eight thousand times each day, but I don’t know why. As far as I can figure, the only reason I use Facebook at all, is because of the other people who use it. It’s not that I want to use it, it’s other people that make me. But what if they don’t really like it either? What if we’re all caught up in Facebook’s world of miserable, and depressing data collection and directed advertising?
Why do you use it? I know you do, please tell me why. It must be because your friends are on it. As a web service, it doesn’t work well, it doesn’t look nice, and it isn’t fun and easy to use. I’ve been using it for years, and it’s fair to say that I can find my way around a website, but even I run into too many instances of hitting the wrong button, or getting confused as to when the enter button will start a new line, or post an incomplete comment.
