Do I really need to know every little thing in a person's day? Nope!
Communications and the dissemination of information have certainly come far. Too far in many instances, such as facebook. I've always found the service to be buggy and more annoying than it's worth. To my friends and family, I do value our relationships but do not need to know the smallest details of your day, day in and out.
I don't want to virtual water any virtual plants, or play any silly games. I do want to delete my facebook account (which I have now de-activated .. there is no link to 'delete' it, I have to send them an email to do so.) Enough said.
