“Facebook is this generation’s AOL; a simplified version of the internet with simplified versions of its functions under one banner.
I think the thing is, I remember Web 1.0. The whole point of the internet was (and to me still is) about communicating with people I don’t know- discussing Star Trek on Usenet with people around the world- not with people I do know. Or did know. Or went to school with but lost touch with because we don’t give a damn about each other. Or whatever.
It’s always just seemed like something for the weak minded to me. Like AOL.”
