I was interested to see this, by McCann Digital Israel – an anti-drug message using the new Facebook Timeline format.
However, I’m not really sure what the message is supposed to be. Other than perhaps to stay away from drugs or you’ll end up looking like Gaz from Supergrass.
It’s just not clear which life is better.
From a hair point of view, it's a close call. All I can say for sure is that if you've got stupid hair, a drug habit won't help.
Other than that, I would say the chap on the left does look a bit fed up.
But at least he doesn’t have to go to work in a shirt and tie. And he got rid of that annoying girlfriend (anyone who makes you take one of those ‘couple together taken by themselves’ shots and post it on Facebook is definitely a wrong ‘un – you're better off without her mate).
Of course you’ll all remember this thought-provoking piece I wrote a couple of years ago.
Even back then, I was warning we need to be careful what we put on Facebook because once you’re gone, you’ll be perfectly preserved forever in all your pointlessness.
Regarding the broader question of whether the timeline feature is an improvement or not I'd say it's proof, were it needed, that Zuckerburg is the anti-Christ.
Looking back at old posts hits a similar level on my Cringe-o-meter as rereading old diaries *SHUDDERS*. And now Timeline makes it far easier to do that.
Dunno about you dear reader but I for one am considering embracing hard drugs to escape from it all.
