The real draw of facebook

The real reason Facebook gets us, aside from keeping in touch with our friends is the romantic notion of keeping in touch with our acquaintances. Admit it, even I will, everyone Facebook stalks from time to time. This practice of looking at people's profiles for non social reasons and instead for private and personal reasons is the proof of facebooks popularity. No longer do we need to hide in someone's bushes because now they just write it in their status. This in turn spurs a barrage of questions that ultimately lead us down a rabbit hole of internet creepery. Facebook has legitimized our peeping Tom propensity and sanctified it in a simple blue and white color profile. Facebook is here to stay because we can't look away even when we should.
