What a loss. I can't be smug about not using facebook if it's down.

All people want, a messenger. Facebook is built on this premise since the rise of AOL's messenger. Problem is they bloat it with crap, stuff advertising everywhere, and demand more private info. It just makes people leave. It happened to MySpace, it happened to bebo, and it is finally happening to Facebook. Many, like myself, keep an account out of formality not because I use it.
