Lame

Everyone has gone to facebook, I suppose. The only posts I see regularly are from Warren Ellis. This is lame.

Facebook is too ephemeral, and of course, has the worst possible policies towards user privacy - something LJ figured out ages ago. By ephemeral, I mean - people's posts are gone in a few seconds, because they're buried under the dross of farmville, which-pop-culture-numbskull-am-i, mafia wars and other pointless drivel.

I miss reading what my friends are up to, working on, and thinking in a substantive way. We're left with "I just had a ham sandwich!" or "Off to [some show I've never heard of]" and drunken pub pictures.

Lame.

Re: we'll be here
Parris I laughed out loud at this superb rant! I know that wasn't what you were shooting for, but I could hear the sarcasm across the wires, all the way from Ireland!

I'm not in the least bit tempted to switch to facebook or anything. Not that I don't use FB, it's just that I miss how I used to be able to keep up with friends, because Livejournal is a place where you talk about more than just your ham sandwich...or at least you maybe also describe the tomato soup and rainy day and memories of youth along with it. Because you have the space to do it. And also, it won't be buried under 18 requests for a home for a lonely sheep.
