Comment of the Day: Placing Blame for Facebook Addiction

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We wrote about the recent spate of articles on people who are "addicted" to Facebook or have otherwise gotten burned by social-media sites.

One reader said blaming Facebook is avoiding responsibility.

I think not being on Facebook is the new not watching television. People do it with the idea that removing themselves from something popular makes them somehow better than people who don't. Facebook isn't all Farmville, Mafia Wars and stalking. It allows me to keep in touch with family and friends across the country. I say use Facebook wisely and reap the rewards!

Hell, I had to quit facebook. If I had to see one more of my friends update their status about returning movies to avoid late fees, or what out-of-the-mouths-of-babes irreverent crap little Timmy said over breakfast that morning, I just might have gone postal.


Yeah no shit. I have a limited number of people in my phone that I talk to on a regular basis. If I don't hear from them in a while, I assume they have more important shit going on- if I'm lucky enough I get a text. If some important shit goes down, I get a phone call.

Outside of that, I could really give two shits about what goes on in their daily lives.
