Why Mothers Should Never Be Allowed on Facebook

I’m not on Facebook. Okay, I’m a loser. Or at least that’s the vibe that I’ve gotten when people learn that I am Facebook-less.

If I truly want to create a buzz around my college book and my college blogs, I’ve been told that I need to be on Facebook.

Yet Facebook seems like a endless popularity contest — the kind that I failed miserably at during my middle-school years. Frankly, I don’t want to spend my time chasing down “friends.” The number of connections that I’ve got on my LinkedIn account looks pathetic enough.

I was reminded of Facebook today when I saw this hilarious post on CollegeHumor.com entitled Why Mothers Should Never Be Allowed on Facebook.

At least for today, I’ll feel good that Facebook and I aren’t friends.
