Social Networking?

Friend from 1998: Hey how's it going?
Me : It's going well how you been?
Friend from 1998: Well I just had 8 kids, traveled to east India for a bowl of rice and cured third world STD
Me: Well I just been working and going to school :-/
Friend from 1998: oh OK

*Conversation deceases only to resume the same exact conversation in 5 months*

I'm pretty sure most of you with a Face book or my space account has been a on the receiving end of the sample conversation I just posted or potentially you could be the one posting that. However honestly what is the point of a My space or Face book? Yeah it's cool to see people you haven't seen since elementary recess days or people since 4th period lunch in High school, but honestly there's a reason you haven't spoken to Chris or Letisha, it's because you weren't that cool to begin with because all the friends that you have not via Social networks are still in your life for a reason. Face book is basically a site used for ex's and foes to spy on your life and see how well your doing in life, face book should be called spy book. Don't get me wrong Spy book is cool for certain aspects such as the Photo album aspects that way you can share pics from your walk to the store or the weekly party you attended just to take pics to put on Spy book. Now when I log on to my mac my daily site rotation is Nike talk(Music Forum, general then kicks), then I head over to my daily "Music supply" sites, check my blog and then Face book and my space. Now I question myself each time I sign on to each of these sites 1. Because an update necessary for everything little thing you do "walking to the bathroom, opening zipper, now peeing" like c'mon is that serious? 2. All these damn applications. find your baby mother brothers sister friend, Word? Let's not even talk about my space.... My space might be home of ignorant losers, I know you shouldn't say that, but when I see people with pics of a stack of 100's and mad prada boxes while confined in a small project bedroom I have to question the integrity of some people. Also whats the big deal with people going so hard for picture comments."comment mii pixxsss an I got chu bacxxxx" :-/ Since when did it become cool to type like that? It's seems like myspace is unofficial "Unsigned Hype" Section of the source as well, it is me or is every person with access to instrumental and a k-mart 9.99 microphone a rapper now? However I knew my space was in the shitter when my 9 yr old cousin whom I love to death sent me a friend request like WTF it's even worst that I can't delete TOM as my friend on my space(what part of the game is that) however what takes the cake is the fact that my space is Face book 2.0 SMH Most of the time i only log onto to these sites to make me feel better and read comments which are basically from the same people who contact me on face book. However no matter how hard I try to delete both of these sites I don't but I have a feel come new year I will succesfully be able to hit that delete button....

True story. I hate that convo! Because that's really all I've been doing. I try to jazz it up with a "writing"...but it doesn't really work compared to niggas curing STD's lol...

But yea, I don't fuck with MySpace too much anymore. I just started using FB for real so I'm not too bored with it yet...but I know that'll happen soon. There really is no point to it all. I've met some cool people using both sites...but enh...I don't need it.
