Certainly a sign of the times when social networking software resorts to utilising other social networking software to try and win you back… from the other social networking software.
You got a Facebook page, MySpace? That's pretty desperate, even for you. It’d be kind of cute – in a kind of geeky way – if I were to somehow StumbleUpon your Twitter profile, where you announced it in a tweet.
But for you to just pop up on my Facebook unannounced – that just makes me uncomfortable. Next you’re gonna start friending all my friends, ‘liking’ all my status updates, joining all the groups I’m on, comment on my oldest photos as though you the fragment of them caught your eye in that new Facebook layout when really you’ve gone through each and every one like any other Facebook wall-stalker, trying to suss out if I have someone special in my life and whether you shape up to them.
I’m just not comfortable with it.
Get off MyBack, MySpace. I need my space, MySpace. If you can’t respect that, you’re no Friendster of mine.
Don’t make me have to block you.
