Facebook (the internet community site) officially passed what arbiters of cool referred to as its “freshness date” early this afternoon. Signs point to one James Enge as the responsible party. “Him joining was just sort of the tipping point for me,” said one of many anonymous hipsters fleeing from the site never to return. The site is expected to shut down shortly due to terminal twelve-minute-ago-ness. Enge, when reached for comment, was too confused to respond coherently. “What’s a ‘wall’? Does someone really have to be my friend to be my ‘friend’? Why do I have to make comments in that illeistic manner?” No one knew what he was talking about.

  1. Amusingly enough, I just joined today, too. I expect a brand-new paradigm for social networking to open up within moments in response.

    Ah, an excellent solution. You go were I will not follow, so I won’t be able to read you, but you’ll still be able to write. Well done!

      I don’t know how often I’ll be on Facebook, as I find the interface baffling. I’m still trying to figure out a way to funnel my blog over there…

    Send me a friend request – I’m not sure which of the James Enges you are!

    I should be doing this as well, but am too much of a neanderthal.

    I don’t get Facebook either, nice to ‘friend’ you though (and such a joy to verbatize nouns).

    But really, it’s a bit of a mess over there, isn’t it?
