Is it wrong to hate Facebook just because you can’t stand to see other people happier than you are?

An epic response from Drew Magary at Deadspin:

But they AREN’T happier! That’s the whole ruse of Facebook. Everyone posts their goddamn vacation photos and pictures of their little shit kids and they’re all like JUST HAD A GREAT DINNER WITH THE KIDS AT BERTUCCI’S! Bullshit. Total crap.

[Y]ou won’t see [the truth] on Facebook. You just get the varnish. It’s people advertising themselves. Which is fine, but don’t expect me to buy that you’re some fucking avid hiker, Tony.

I also strongly dislike people who use status updates on Twitter or Facebook to compose flowery, phony deep thoughts for the day, or to quote Emily Dickinson or something horrible like that. Hey fuckface, you wanna write a book? Write a goddamn book. No one’s gonna read your stupid status update and think you’re the 160-character James Joyce.

Excellent, and 100% accurate I might add.
