Who's the social network whipping boy this week? Facebook. Yesterday, Bill Gates admitted that he had been so overwhelmed by friend requests when he joined that he gave up on it.
As if on cue, media maven Martha Stewart took Facebook to task as well, and taking the opportunity to cite her real networking face, Twitter. She said:
I just love it so much more than Facebook. First of all, you don't have to spend any time on it, and, second of all, you reach a lot more people. And I don't have to "befriend" and do all that other dippy stuff that they do on Facebook.
Girlfriend has a point. In fact, I've had a lot of previously Facebook-addicted friends recently cop to all but abandoning it because they'd gotten so into Twitter.
I still spend equal amounts of time (occupational requirement), and I do honestly love them the same — but what about you?
