“I had a dream to read other people’s minds. Then I joined Facebook”

Then I got a Facebook account, and I’m over it” is a jocular Facebook saying that has been printed on many images. “I always wanted to read other people’s minds, well now there’s facebook, where everyone just thinks out loud. Thank you facebook” was posted on Twitter on November 15, 2010.

I used to wonder what it’d be like to read other people’s minds. Then I got a Facebook account and now I’m over it.

“I used to wonder what it would be like to read other people’s minds. Then I got a Facebook account and now I am over it.” This statement was a timeline post on someone’s Facebook account and it will certainly ring true in an uncomfortable way for many people.
