Can I be your friend?

This is the video I was talking about in the lecture today:

And here is another funny video about why people hate facebook (but still don't quit ;-)):

What do you think is the reason for people always complaining about facebook, while still not quitting the service? Is it only the network effect and that they might miss something or are there other reasons that lock us in?

  1. I agree that scary of missing something could be the reason.

    I can assume the other reason - people like to pry. And facebook allows you peek at someone else's life and compare with your own life. We all have more or less stereotyped way of thinking and one of stereotypes is our ideas about "good", "right", "happy" life. Using facebook you can assess your life in comparison with others' lives within this stereotype.
