FB is the new smoking

Posted in Inventions by Type Tasting on March 29, 2010

An email from a friend in Paris, in response to my question about whether they had the same Spring time change over there: “Yeah we have the same bleary eyed hour change here, it does hurt, this morning it looked like everyone was operating on auto pilot, including me it took a litre of coffee and a bit of catching up on Facebook before I could function.” I like that excuse for catching up with Facebook – Facebook as the new 10-minute-time-out smoking break. Big companies should do that –  all the non-smokers get a FB break.

    I love the comparison between facebook and smoking – does that mean that facebook can damage your health? I always had a lurking suspicion…

    Chuckle, no ‘course it doesn’t, but it’s the same kind of pause in your life that smoking gives you just without the coughing or smelly clothes.

    That’s a really good idea!
