The “Sin” of Facebook

...

8 March 2009

A friend has just reported to me that he’s given up Facebook for Lent.  

There are so many levels of resonance to that — especially as I blog here about the strangeness and dissonance of social networking — and  I can’t seem to stop thinking/musing about it…

Maybe what it’s triggered for me is a whole psycho-sociological thought-path that is now leading into spiritual realms, i.e. the layers beneath the expression “guilty pleasure” and what it is that millions of people really “get” out of Facebook.  

More soon, after I stop giggling… (if you’re reading this, JC, you know I’m not laughing AT you, I’m laughing WITH you.)
