I suspected months ago that I was too old for Facebook. Not anymore! Old fogies have taken over the social networking site! That's according to Lev Grossman in his "Technoculture" blog on Time.com.
(I'll give LBCC journalism student Rick Casillas credit for dubbing Time.com "Nerd World" on his evolving site -- Mediocre Gatsby's Wild Publishing Party. Check it out.)
Anyway, Grossman delivers 10 reasons why Facebook is for old fogies, including:
4. Facebook isn't just a social network; it's a business network. And unlike, say, college students, we actually have jobs. What's the point of networking with people who can't hire you? Not that we'd want to work with anyone your age anyway.or
10. We're not cool, and we don't care. There was a time when it was cool to be on Facebook. That time has passed. Facebook now has 150 million members, and its fastest-growing demographic is 30 and up. At this point, it's way cooler not to be on Facebook. We've ruined it for good, just like we ruined Twilight and skateboarding.Watch out those of you under 30, we've got Twitter in our sights...
