Facebook or Crackbook....you know you have a problem when.....

Facebook or Crackbook.....you know you have a problem when.....

1.  You see a post from your wife telling you it's time for dinner.....and you reply back.

2.  The last time you saw your neighbor 2 doors down from you was when they posted a new pick on their profile.

3.  You think you're really getting rich by playing the "Owned" application.

4.  You ask your children if their homework is done by posting the question on their home page........ okay, I've seriously done that.

5.  You think that being on Facebook will really, really, really help you sell houses, and that's why you spend 1/2 of your workday on there.

6.  You are in your home office, your wife is in the family room....she comments on your status, you comment back, she adds another comment, so you comment back.......it never occurs to you to walk 15 feet and talk to her personally....... oh man, done that too!!!!!!!!!

7.  You believe that you are incredibly popular because you have more then 700 bazillion friends on your friends list, but can't remember the name of your dog.

8.  You took your computer with you on family vacation under the pretense of 'working'..... but you really just want to annoy your friends back home with pictures proving how wonderful a time you are having.......

9.  And finally (because I have to get back onto my profile) You think that people who don't 'facebook' just aren't worth your time, obviously, because they lack the computer skills in order to be able for you to communicate with them............

Hahaha this is so me. My roommate and I comment back and forth on facebook and she literally sleeps 5 feet away from me in the same room. I guess I should have said crackbook? ;) - Kat

Thanks for those gentle reminders to all of us in that humorous way.  Facebook is a tool as is Active Rain, Twitter and all the other social networking media.  But we can't forget the other tools we have been using successfully for years.  I guess one day we will all just carry a head cam pointed at our face, a moniter built into our glasses and microphone implanted in our neck.  Then we can stay connected to everyone while we move about the universe.  We have come a long way from the pony express.
