Quick. Another facebook…

I was invited to yet another social media site yesterday. There was nothing outstanding about it. It was just another place to sign up, interact with people, post cute sayings, and converse about certain topics. And they made it easy for you. One-click registration with a facebook interface. If you give them permission to post on your wall and hit up all your friends to join too.

 

So I looked around. Nothing new. Same old same old. Why should I bother? Well, they conspicuously informed me, 47 of my facebook friends were already here. I guess I got the invite because one of them signed up using the facebook interface. But wait…

 

Why do I want to sign up for yet another time wasting social media site just to interact with the same friends I already interact with on facebook? That’s their big reason? And people fall for it? ::sigh::
