This is the beginning of a new chapter to the Johnnyism blog.  This means, of course, that I’ll actually try to write an entry more often.  Today I begin a new series.  Will this new series involve me posting and responding to all the negative comments I get?  No.  Everyone already knows I’m a terrible writer and that I’m insanely ignorant.  This one is about things or people that have changed the world.  In today’s episode, we talk about the Facebook.

FACEBOOK: Where An Adult Can Pretend He Has a Life

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT??:  Facebook allows us to keep in contact with people we may have lost contact with, no matter how much we may or may not want to.  It allows us to feel powerful as we hold the balance of someone’s social life in our hands. Stanleywants to be friends?  Not now  Stanley, not now.

Facebook changed the way we socialize.  Before, we wasted so many hours actually getting out of the house, meeting people and hanging out physically with people.  But now no more of that hassle.  Now I can just sit in my computer chair, eating my ice cream cake by myself and no one has to hear my sobbing. 

BRIEF HISTORY:  The movie The Social Network famously portrayed the history of Facebook.  Tho it did get a few things wrong.  Yes, Jesse Eisenberg did in fact invent Facebook.  But what you may not know is that he got the idea from someone hash tagging him on his Twitter account.  Facebook founder Jesse Eisenberg envisioned his creation to not only be a place where people could come together and express themselves, but also as a place where religious girls could post their two piece bikini pics.  And on both accounts he can count himself as a success.

Facebook is now worth approximately the same as the state ofTexas.  Eisenberg has told Texas that he would consider a trade. Texas is considering his offer. 

INTERESTING FACTS:

Facebook has more members than any club. 

Facebook tastes better with the tears of a cyber bullied teenager. 

On Facebook, you may become a fan of an actual wind blowing fan.  Not only does this blow my mind, it also makes me question my religious beliefs.

Without Facebook, I may have never been able to find out just how great my ex girl friend is doing….(the author leaves the room for approximately 45 minutes to compose himself).    

Jesse Eisenberg, the creator of Facebook.  Do not question me on this undeniable fact. 

Thanks to Facebook I was able to become a fan of this.
