Certainly a sign of the times when social networking software resorts to utilising other social networking software to try and win you backâ¦ from the other social networking software.
You got a Facebook page, MySpace? That's pretty desperate, even for you. Itâd be kind of cute â in a kind of geeky way â 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 â that just makes me uncomfortable. Next youâre gonna start friending all my friends, âlikingâ all my status updates, joining all the groups Iâm on, comment on my oldest photos as though you the fragment of them caught your eye in that new Facebook layout when really youâve 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.
Iâm just not comfortable with it.
Get off MyBack, MySpace. I need my space, MySpace. If you canât respect that, youâre no Friendster of mine.
Donât make me have to block you.
