Facebook used to be the thinking man’s answer to the retardednessÂ of Friendster and Myspace. But as we have learned (if only vaguely) from high school science class, the universe tends towards entropy.
We all knew that Facebook was bound to fail eventually. But just like a nicotine junkie slowly filling his lungs with tar, we ignored it and pinned our hopes on science finding a cure for lung cancer in the very near future.
But this is it. This is the high-water mark, this is where the wave will finally crash. We thought it would be the inane applications that would do it, or the Filipino translation that you can’t figure out how to turn off. But in the end, it was Man. Because Man destroys everything he touches, even,Â eventually, himself.
