Has our Facebook Obsession Gone Too Far? [GALLERY]

I, like every other college student, spend a fair amount of time on the ‘book, from creating party events, to shameless stalking of ex boyfriends, and of course, rick rolling people like it’s my job (never gonna give you up!). There’s nothing wrong with that; I mean, that’s what Facebook is for.

Unfortunately, as Facebook becomes more and more pervasive, for some people it’s becoming less of a place to post pictures and musings from their lives and more a place to actually live them. Remember the groom who posted on Facebook during his wedding? Funny? A sign of the times? Yeah, but also a little bit pathetic. And that doesn’t even hold a candle to these most recent Facebook updates….

Clearly, the world’s complete and utter obsession with Facebook has gone way, way too far. The site that started out as an easy way for college students to connect has now turned into a place that is quickly changing the way we all interact, phasing out face to face communication and creating new social problems as it goes.

What’s next on the social network frontier? I’m afraid to find out.

    I enjoy using Facebook to keep in touch and update people on things going on, as well as using it as a place to post my assorted "tokens of wisdom," but I've started to hate Facebook lately thanks to all of my friends using it to talk about real life. "Did you read my status?" No, because if I'm standing next to you, you can damn well just tell me what it said.

    I'm in college and addicted to FB. But there are so many things on my wall that shouldn't be…like my uncle, my old high school tutor, and my neighbor who's like family. But I am too nice to not accept their friend requests. So I just joined this new called Flinkey and sent them invites to hopefully join as well. Its a way they can see how I'm doing in school and and also send me money through the site to my bank account. If my neighbor comments on one more of my pics I am going to scream!

  5. […] But if you’re not ready to get off the couch and get crazy just yet, there’s always extensive Facebook stalking.  It’s likely that people have uploaded tons of pictures from New Years Eve and the rest of the holiday season.  Feel free to stalk – I won’t judge (because that would be hypocrisy…)   I might, however, have to judge if you do any of the things that force us to wonder: has our Facebook obsession gone too far?
