Sometimes Facebook seems like a giant lobotomy. Everyone seems so much less intelligent. We aren’t, really, you meet us in real life and we’re smart as ever. But you read us on Facebook and you wonder where all the IQ went. I’m not sure why that is. Maybe it’s Facebook etiquette. Obscenity, rudeness and critical thinking are faux pas. Kitty pictures, what we ate for breakfast and believing every post we see no matter how ridiculous are good things.
Hopefully this is just a phase we’re going through. That awkward, gullible stage. Internet adolescence. If not, then maybe this is the dawn of the post-consciousness age. There was a mighty civilization here once, they’ll say, and then there was Facebook.
