I'm friends with a couple of other Brianna Snyders on Facebook (Brianna Snyders 4 life!) and my favorite is a 14- or 15-year-old Brianna Snyder who lives in Connecticut! She's always putting something awesome in her status updates like:
"is a little down since nobody wished her a happy birthday today, which isn't surprising really, since it isn't my birthday."
"chasing a bug with the cursor"
Today she posted a sweet time-killer of a link, likin-it.com, which is just an endlessly refreshable list of things to "like" on Facebook. You get a good sense of the Facebook 500-million's general mentality. A lot of broken hearts, happy birthdays, love-my-girlfriends, movie quotes/song lyrics, etc. It's embarrassing that I have to constantly be reminded that there's a whole new — younger — generation on Facebook. Lots of kids! So some of the humor can be a little erratic and sometimes crazy and potentially immature (MOM LEAVE ME ALON IM TXTINGGGGgGGGGGGgGgggGG), but it's also great, because kids are hilarious, and these kids have a better handle on the Web now than I ever will in life, despite how hard I try. So .... KUDOS TO THE KIDDOS
Here's some of my fav "likes":
