That is not the reason why you occasionally delete facebook, and we both know it.

“Posting information is like pornography, a slick, impersonal exhibition. Exchanging stories is like making love: probing, questing, questioning, caressing. It is mutual. It is intimate. It takes patience, devotion, sensitivity, subtlety, skill—and it teaches them all, too.”

As any good student of literature knows, there is indeed something to the lexical-libidinal. Unfortunately, I often delete facebook not because of it, but because I am a horrible procrastinator.

it takes an article from a pretentious publication to share your viewpoint? no wonder english majors don’t do anything productive in their lives, they are always seeking validation from something else –usually old, absurd and obscure.
