Facebook in real life

My sentiments exactly...Facebook is just one of those phases the digital world has to get through. Like Mapquest. Everyone complains about Mapquest now, because you never know where you're going to end up when you use it. It's pretty useless now, but when it first came out, it was pretty cool. When it worked, it was great. And if it didn't work so well, you figured it was still new and different. But over time the user experience changes, as do user expectations.

It's the same with Facebook. But it's long past it's shelf life. It's starting to smell. It doesn't reflect real life, does it? It's just a rather heavy-handed attempt to reflect real life.

Social networking is here to stay. We are social animals. It's that simple and clear. But there's more to come. All it's gonna take is a little creativity, and a huge leap in technology.
