Tom Hodgkinson (idolul meu in viata, pt cine nu stie :p), scrie despre Facebook in The Guardian:
I despise Facebook. This enormously successful American business describes itself as “a social utility that connects you with the people around you”. But hang on. Why on God’s earth would I need a computer to connect with the people around me? Why should my relationships be mediated through the imagination of a bunch of supergeeks in California? What was wrong with the pub?
And does Facebook really connect people? Doesn’t it rather disconnect us, since instead of doing something enjoyable such as talking and eating and dancing and drinking with my friends, I am merely sending them little ungrammatical notes and amusing photos in cyberspace, while chained to my desk? A friend of mine recently told me that he had spent a Saturday night at home alone on Facebook, drinking at his desk. What a gloomy image. Far from connecting us, Facebook actually isolates us at our workstations.

nimic mai adevarat. am si eu cont pe facebook, si pe linkedin, feederro etc, dar rar se intimpla sa vorbesc cu cineva de acolo – cum bine zice Hodgkinson, social networks “appeal to a kind of vanity and self-importance in us”, dar cam atit, in rest nu folosesc la nimic, decit sa le ingroase unora conturile.
