Um …

Not to sound uppity or anything, but a section of the following article has me seeing red.  Check out No. 5:

And I quote, “[You Should Never Make a NY Resolution to Stop Using Facebook] Facebook is a part of every aspect of modern life, from shopping, to reconnecting with old friends and stalking exes. So go ahead and give in to the urge, everyone else has.”

I am sorry, Marie Claire, but everyone else has not given in to “the urge” for Facebook.  Some of us have even left Facebook thoroughly unimpressed.  Fifteen years ago stalking your ex was rather unfashionable behaviour — the fact that this is now entirely normal is not, in my opinion, a change for the better.

How about a resolution to get in touch with old friends without using Facebook at all?  Is it really all that difficult?
