Why Facebook Is for Old Fogies

Lev in Time: Facebook is for The Olds.


I especially like that he used the word 'fogies'. If ever there is a fogie word it is fogie.

Do you think they meant that to be a picture of Alan Greenspan? Also, Lev is not that old. Though he is bald.

What is explanation for any of this point? Everybody can imagine.

At the risk of appearing automatonish, here's something from the NYT today:
Why would anyone trust a company with his or her personal information, especially when that companys explicit legal language claims eternal rights to exploit that information, and there is good reason to expect that they will?

Yeah... facebook exploiting the shit out of everything anyone's ever posted on it is like the housing bust -- everybody knew it was coming, but everyone convinced themselves it wasn't coming.

Meanwhile, I spend like 10 minutes every week on facebook, and let me tell you it is AMAZING.
