This was the status of one of my friends on FB recently:
"Bored with facebook, orkut, mobiles & chat windows. Going away from all these for some time. Post me an e-mail if it's too urgent. I would love to recieve handwritten letters if old friends want to catch up. BYE..."
Yes, social network sites can get to you sometimes. The internet itself is but a bubble, and FaceBook has entered most people's lives. FB, to me, is the most amazing bubble, containing all my friends---a very alive, thinking group of people, all reaching out, reacting, communicating; sometimes posting several lines but saying very little, sometimes using very few words but saying a lot. A photo here, a comment there, some news here, a link there...some days they leave a deep impression on me, and I keep introspecting on the comment or link the whole day.
I always loved soap bubbles...small, big, colourful, floating gently in the air, bursting with a soundless pop. I know the soap bubble will surely burst, yet I like it. Similarly, I like the FB bubble also...it has a lot of colour too; I know it can burst and I will then find myself all alone in front of my computer, but until then, why not enoy the gentle, and sometimes not so gentle sway?
