Misanthropy Squared  
So Nolan is on Facebook.

This was met by stunned silence and a raised eyebrow from me, because up to this point in our marriage, my devastatingly handsome husband has eschewed all things as frivolous as internet networking sites.

If he ever gets a livejournal, I'll be paralyzed by the shock of it.

Anyway, he's been on Facebook all of a week maybe, getting friend requests from family members and old school chums and the like when he asks me, "How do I get these people off my page?"

Can I just say he was inordinately pleased with the "Hide All" option? In fact, I'm fairly certain that he wishes there were some way to make a "Hide All" button happen in real life.

I think I might be on board with that, as well, come to think of it.

Yeah, you work out the tech behind that 'hide all' button in real life and you let me know.

Shocking. If my husband ever joins Facebook, Twitter or LJ I think hell will freeze over.

Sometimes, a "Hide All" Button for Real Life would be very useful, indeed.

I frequently find myself in the shops looking at the shelves and wishing desperately for a real life "CTRL + F" option so I can find things instantly instead of this stone aged, 'looking around' rubbish. :D

[I can't really say anything on the facebook front, since I still refuse to have one.]

Matt got on Facebook about 2 months ago...for "fraternity reasons" ONLY! He's a graduate advisor to his fraternity and was told FB was a great way to get information out to other graduates about going-on's in the chapter. He wasn't happy, but I helped him get a page organized.

Next thing he knows...he's getting friend after friend request from our mutual friends, their wives, people we knew from Six Flags and YES, my friends! (although you haven't bugged him yet, Carrie- what gives?) He was not happy about all the people wanting to know his business.

After hearing him bitch and moan for weeks, I finally had to give him a bit of advice that might work for Nolan too- Do NOT get on a SOCIAL networking site if you do NOT WANT to be SOCIAL!!

Boys? Why do they want to get into things that they know they will hate?

Good Luck...I feel you FB pain! :)
