Love handles

Saturday, March 29, 2008
I'm a Facebook addict. I joined when it first became available at Kent State when all my friends thought I was crazy. "Why are you on that? No one is on that." Low and behold and four years later, it's popular as hell and even the business world is all about the Facebook.

In that time, Facebook has also added tons of advertising to its page. Have you noticed any ads lately? I have had several for love handles, pregnancy, marriage and even muffin tops. Seriously! Muffin tops! Can Facebook tell that I need to lose weight. Maybe they assume every 25-year-old girl has love handles and needs to get rid of those. Maybe they are even following me on Twitter?

Whatever. I'm over it.

facebook and i didn't really get along. i was already out of college before it hit UD and i joined myspace where i became beyond obsessed.

loving the social media thing i started a facebook page a few months ago and all the applications bugged me. so i deleted it.

you can go ahead and call me a quitter.

My favorite is the ad for the pink patch that will make your stomache magically disappear.

Alexa -- Get back on Facebook. It's so much easier than MySpace without the porn.

Jason -- Yes, I do Tweet.

Maureen - I didn't get that one yet. But I did get an ad for a bride and muffin tops. I must be in the target for those.

Ha Ha - love this post! I get a lot of ads for retro Rocky tees? Can they tell I'm Italian and that my brother used to wear a pinky ring?

Did he wear a gold chain with an Italian flag too?
