Thank you, social media, for making it socially acceptable to sit in front of a computer for all of the waking hours in a day.
Maybe, one day, it will become socially un
acceptable to not
sit in front of a computer.

It is now!
I've had an amazing few nights lately, hooking up at parties with former facebook friends in the 'real' world after deleting my account many months ago.
I've become the 'mysterious' guy now who actually has something new to talk about, other than information everyone already knows from their FBook wall.
Free yourself Mex, and return to the face to face world! Lol
I appreciate the IRL perspective you bring, watersoul. I am very much old-school like you in that I find Facebook and Twitter to be distracting instead of exciting. I love grabbing beers with my boss after work and interacting with the immediate people around me, even if that means that I lose touch with my close friends from college who moved to other, distant parts of the country.
Human beings adapt to their environments, and I think we all need interpersonal support IRL and not just over Facebook. There absolutely is value in face-to-face personal interactions.
