Matt Mosley on why not to Facebook

"Some of my buddies have chided me for not signing up for Facebook. They talk about the ability to reconnect with long lost high school and college friends and how addictive it can be. For many reasons -- mainly because I worked so hard to disconnect from many of those people -- I've resisted their efforts. But this morning, I have a completely new reason not to share my inner-most thoughts and desires in a public forum: The Philadelphia Eagles might try to have me fired. Dan Leone was a rabid Eagles fan (like there's any other kind) who was living out a dream of working for the organization as a part-time employee. When the Eagles allowed Brian Dawkins to sign with the Broncos, the 32-year-old Leone fired off an angry message on his Facebook. It's the sort of thing you could get away with in a crowded bar in South Philly -- but not in Cyberspace."
couldn't have said it better myself


  1. you don't play football. you have no excuse.

    welcome to the new millennium, you old man.
    Shave you face and join facebook like a good human being!


  2. this isn't a reason to not sign up for facebook - this is a reason to use judgment when you participate in online activities.

    the fact that you have a PUBLIC blog while facebook posts are PRIVATE by their default settings is a little hypocritical... you're exposing yourself more by having than you would by having a facebook profile.

    here again, as long as you don't stick your foot in your mouth, it doesn't really matter where you spend your time on the internet...
