Facebook Competition


We don’t just want more friends than everybody else; we also want the highest score in Word Twist and the most virtual Easter Eggs. I recently spent nearly 24 hours playing Scramble on Facebook until I had a higher score than my friend Dough Dough. Why? Because I knew Facebook would send him a note that said; “Raina has beaten your personal high score on Scramble.” When he commented on his complete and total defeat, I just said; “I didn’t know Facebook would tell you that. OMG! LOL!”

    Eh. I can’t wait until Facebook and MySpace die. I haven’t been as sick of an Internet “phenomenon” since everyone couldn’t shut up about “the dot com boom”….meh.

    well, bunch of old republican governors talking about it trying to look “hip” may mark the beginning of the end.

    then again, you still see white grandmas on tv raising the roof once in a while…so just watch out for the death throes..
