This comic has been inspired by the over-hyped Facebook stock offering of the past few weeks.... having people constantly ask me if I'm on Facebook for the past decade sewed the seeds though. In case you can't tell, I have a little rage about all the pressure to join Facebook. Google Plus works just fine for me thanks. Truth be told, I'm not a big fan of social media in general. I don't need 12,000 virtual firends, just a select few REAL ones. I don't feel the need to catalog and broadcast every minutia of my mundane existence. I don't have an iPhone or an iPad and I don't want one. I don't need to be hooked into the rest of the world 24 hours a day and be bombarded by tweets, twits, pseudo news articles, scare-mails, scams, adds for dick medicine, and other pointless garbage. Social media can be a very useful tool in moderation. I don't want it intruding on every waking moment of my life. Sorry Mark Zuckerberg. Take a hike. If I want to be connected to people. I'll do it the old fashioned way: Face to face, not through Facebook.
