Apparently, it has taken time out of Vancouver marketing maven and blogger extraordinaire Jeremy Lim‘s social agenda – although, to judge by the title of his blog, marketing had already ruined his life prior to the advent of Facebook.
As a butterfly on the periphery of Vancouver’s tech/marketing/blogging/whatever scene, I’ve definitely heard my share of anecdotes about whether or not social media applications are just taking up too much time to be worth it. As an addiction, I’d say Facebook hit me pretty hard at first, but in time, I’ve definitely gotten control over it. That may have something to do with the fact that I NEVER CLICK ON ANY FACEBOOK APPLICATIONS THAT I THINK WILL WASTE TIME, like Werewolves versus Vampires (who the hell cares that you’ve infected 200 chumps? What, do you actually get to boss them around in a hypnotic state, or what? If so, then I really do need to start infecting chumps…). This ensures I only get a quality Facebooking every time without the distracting (and annoying extras).
Also, this ensures people don’t post pornographic images on my Facebook site, which is always a good thing. Some things really ought to remain between a man and his monitor.
