My friend makes George Orwell look conventional. My friend collects, stores and shares my personal data. My friend is yet another outlet for marketers, advertising agencies and THEM to manipulate my mind. Facebook represents everything that we as Americans despise. Big Brother. Invasion of privacy. Mass conformity and consumerism. Oh wait. I take that back. Facebook represents everything we as Urchins despise.
Facebook allows you to create your unique profile page, complete with drunken photos, musical tastes (or lack thereof), and thoughts (or lack thereof.) A unique page, just like everyone else in the world! It’s like getting a tattoo in order to be original. Facebook has infiltrated our culture, created a new way to waste time, and further distance humans from humans. Facebook is quickly taking over the world, one mind at a time.
