Type "Facebook Fatigue" into Google, and you get 292,000 results. More or less.
Though I have a Facebook profile, I don't use it. And I am not a student, so I am not eligible to use Lymabean. But I am blogging about Lymabean because of a peculiarly resonant (for me) aspect of the founding story. You see, Wurtz graduated from BYU in accounting, and he said one of the reasons he started Lymabean was because he "just wanted to get out of accounting."
Been there, Jeff.

When I hear people complain that social networking sites are boring, I always wonder what it is they want from these sites. There's as much entertainment to be had as you are willing to derive from it. But it's not TV, it's not a movie, it's not a concert; you cannot passively enjoy these sites. It requires active engagement.

"you cannot passively enjoy these sites. It requires active engagement."
Wow. I never thought I would hear anything like that. IM old fashioned O, people in this country need more active engagement with something besides a computer screen (or any other kind of screen for that matter). I must be more of a luddite than I like to think. Then again, I did just write all that on a blog comment.
I'm going to go engage with something offscreen...
