I have a love-hate relationship with Facebook. The pros include inviting many people at once to events when I don't want to use a phone, updating my status with pretentious song lyrics, and - of course - stalking people from high school. The cons, however, are just as numerous: getting tagged in awful photos, people babbling about virtual farm animals, and... ok, people updating their statuses with pretentious song lyrics. But BAD ones! Blergh. I feel like an old person in a rocking chair when I tell people how I long for the days when Facebook was just for college students to track down that dude from Geology class and post hilarious photos from the dorm.
For now I'm still neutral about Facebook, but it seems to be a trend among some of my friends to quit altogether and delete their accounts. Is this the new cool thing to do? Subvert the standard? Drea seems to think so.

andrea: I've always been too cool for school
Well DUH right back at you because if it weren't for Facebook, we wouldn't have Lamebook. Also, I wouldn't have found this old gem:
Thanks, Mr. Zuckerberg, for keeping my drunk-in-public moments precious.
