What Facebook is, etc.

Yep, I think I've figured out what Facebook is: it's a long-winded Twitter. It's just about as ephemeral as Twitter is (except you can't get out of Facebook no matter what you do). It's not a substitute for blogging or any kind of daybook. It seems to be a way to connect with people you used to know, know now, wish you didn't know, etc. So weird. I like better on Twitter that you just "follow" people--there are no weird attachments of friending people that aren't remotely even your acquaintances. So if you want to stop following someone, it doesn't need to carry any emotional baggage (or shouldn't). But I still like LiveJournal and its clones. It's blogging/diary-like, yet a community too. WITH communities (groups).
