So what is it that’s so special about not having Facebook?
And why do people who don’t have Facebook love to talk about it? No matter what you’re talking about, somehow they find a way to say “Well, iiiiiiiiiii don’t have a Facebook account!”
So what?! What use is the information that you don’t have a Facebook account? It doesn’t lead to any productive action! At least if you go around telling people that you DO have a Facebook account, they can go: “Well sure, I don’t know you, but I guess I could add you or something if you want. It could be fun even, maybe we could play Farmville together, and then maybe even one day be the next pathetic couple to change our relationship statuses at the altar.” And no one who has Facebook actually does go around making a point of telling people about it.
Whereas if you tell someone you don’t have Facebook, what can they say? “Ok, have fun with you’re knitting then!” “Oh I will, I’m gonna finish my 73rd scarf today! Then I’m going to start making cardigans.”
The fact is, that if you’re not wasting your time on Facebook, you’re wasting it on something. Not being online doesn’t somehow remove your human affinity with procrastination. You WILL find something. At least on Facebook there are other people to waste time with.
