Another Reason to Hate Facebook & Twitter

Frank Rich in today’s NY Times has a good summation of the role of “social networking” in the current Most Disgusting Midterm Campaign Season Ever:
Friends (the real kind) tell me I really need to get with it, get on board, become a Facebook user. Every time I start to buckle, I read something like this. But I will add this: I used to rail against cellphones (now it’s my only phone: “Goodbye, Landline”) until feeling the smart rebuke of a friend, who said, “Bill, it’s a utility.” He’s right.
I still hate cellphones—the annoying ‘talking over each other’ effect, the annoying ability to be reached everywhere and anywhere. But I use them.
