I was just repeatedly clicking through facebook’s social interview application, and I realized how frustrating facebook is.  And no, this is not a revelation.  Clearly I’m neither the first nor the last – nor is it the first time that I have noticed – to notice that facebook is frustrating.  It brings me closer to my friends, because at a click everything about them is right there.  But it takes me farther from my friends.  It reminds me of every friend I do not keep up with.  It reminds me of all the family I should visit more often.  And then, because I do not contact that person whose name I see, it becomes more frustrating, and harder to contact them since I feel guilty about not contacting them before, and then repeat process.

So facebook, you are frustrating.  But you are useful.
