“Facebook is like jail” (joke)

"Facebook is like a jail. You sit around, waste time, have a profile picture, write on walls and get poked by guys you don’t really know” appeared on NUK3.com on December 17, 2009. “Facebook is like jail u sit around and waste time u write on walls and u get poked by people u don’t even know lol” was cited on Twitter on November 16, 2010, and quickly became viral. The jocular saying was printed on many posters.


Facebook
Facebook (formerly [thefacebook]) is an online social networking service headquartered in Menlo Park, California. Facebook was founded on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow Harvard University students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. The founders had initially limited the website’s membership to Harvard students, but later expanded it to colleges in the Boston area, the Ivy League, and Stanford University. It gradually added support for students at various other universities and later to high-school students. Facebook now allows anyone who claims to be at least 13 years old to become a registered user of the website. Its name comes from a colloquialism for the directory given to it by American universities students.

After registering to use the site, users can create a User profile, add other users as “friends”, exchange messages, post status updates and photos, share videos and receive notifications when others update their profiles. Additionally, users may join common-interest user groups, organized by workplace, school or college, or other characteristics, and categorize their friends into lists such as “People From Work” or “Close Friends”

First a couple of definitions that I found on the net which made me laugh out loud:

Twitter is not a conversation, it is a brain fart.
