Community, getting together , having fun.
We used to have parties, or just hang out lots.
But more and more we're gettin together on our computers
I understand, it's easy,
You don't have to get dressed up, do your hair or take a shower.
You just sit your stinky butt down in front of your computer.
Post that younger looking picture of yourself
And there you are, Networking. Out on the NET
What is Networking anyway?
A few years ago we all faked like we knew what that was.
?Network? Oh ya. Uh, which is your favourite? I kinda like CBS?
But none of us really knew how to do it.
Facebook came along like 'Networking for Dummies'.
They made it easy. You join up, add some friends
And if you don't really have any, don't worry.
Facebook's got it covered.
I've managed to get a bunch of nice friends
From that helpful little side bar Facebook calls "Suggested friends".
These aren't people you know already.
They're for people like me, who don't have many friends;
The Suggested friends column is like my 'Friend of the week'
How did they get to be friend of the week anyway?
I'll bet they pay!!!!!
I wonder how much I'd have to pay to be friend of the week?
And Now there's Twitter... just as good a name as Facebook.
They're all weird names Linkdin, Facebook, Twitter, Yahooooo!
Facebook makes a bit of sense though, cuz everybody's got a face.
But is everybody a Twit? ...*scan the audience*.... yeah Maybe.
But why make a social network out of Twits?
And is Twitter serving up a "Twit of the week"?
I hope so if they plan to keep up.
Cuz some of my Facebook buddies have like 500 or more friends.
Pages and pages of people they've clicked that "Comfirm as a friend" button to.
Well I'm sorry, but that's too stressful for me
Most Facebook friend requests are a no win situation in my book
Like, a request will come in from someone I don't know all that well
I'm looking at their face wondering? Do I know you?
Then I start thinking... would I want this person thinking we're friends now?
What if they start calling me up to go for coffee?
You see?! Now that would be awkward.
But just as stressful, is clicking the ignore button.
Cuz now you've offended some wacko, who's gonna be calling you up to ask why.
Or maybe showing up at your work place causing a scene.
?WHY?!!.... WHY NOT ME?!!!!!As Security drags them off.
And Facebook only gives you the two choices, Confirm or Ignore
Twitter sucks too! they don't even ask you.
No friend requests, no hello my name is...
