I still don't get Facebook. What is it? I can't see any pages, and all anyone will say is that it's a "social networking site".
I "get" LiveJournal. It's a blog site that makes it simple to aggregate blogs you like to read into a "friends" list, and allow certain levels of trusted access to the people on that list. I get what people DO here; it's a BLOG. Same with DeviantArt; it's an art site with interactive comments and journals. At its core, though, people post ART.
Hell, I even get MySpace: it's Geocities 2.0.
But I don't get Facebook. From all the descriptions I've heard, it's Links Without Content.
I've had a few people say, "why don't you just sign up and see for yourself?"
... is it just me, or is there something inherently cultish about that phrase?
"Facebook: The Medium is the Message." Elegant.
