O.K, so, I had a dream last night that Facebook got a new game – it would set you up to PM with someone on your friends list without telling you who it is on your friends list you are talking to.
The point of it was ‘see how well you know all your friends’, so, see if you can guess who it is just by asking questions.
I thought ‘hey, that’s pretty cool!’, and decided to play it.
I started talking to the person I got set up with, and started asking them random questions ‘What’s your favorite colour?’, ‘What’s your favorite movie?’, ‘what colour hair do you have?’, and the other person did the same (‘Do I know you from the comic book store?’ ‘Are you that friend of Mark’s he made me friend?’), but no matter how many questions I asked, I couldn’t figure out who it was.
Finally, the person was all ‘Look, I have NO IDEA who on my friends list you can be.’ I agreed, so we pressed the ‘quit’ button and a message popped up to tell us who we were talking to.
Turns out, it wasn’t anyone on my friends list at all! It was just some random person they set me up with!
Later that day (in the dream), my dad was on MSN, and I saw something and asked to read the article. It was about ‘Facebook’s New Attempt at Getting You to Have More Friends’, and how they set you up to chat with people to see if you will friend each other afterwords.
Of course, once word got out that it was just random people, guys started going on saying stuff like ‘R U horny?’ and ‘want to live-webcam with me’, and emo people went on being all ‘I’m so alone, it’s so dark here, help me’, so basically, the Facebook master plan was a bust.
They really just created another Omegle.
So, anyway, that’s how the dream ended. I probably had it because I get creeped out by how Facebook sends me E-Mails practically every day to ask me if I ‘know this person, do I know that person’.
But really, don’t you think that game would be cool (provided it actually DID match you up with your friends, and not someone random)?
Like, kids always say ‘Oh, I know everyone on my friends list – and I have 132!’, but, REALLY.
I’ve got eleven, and they’re all family, and every here and there I look at the list and think ‘How do I know these people? I wish I didn’t have so many relatives – I look pathetic, having all these facetious friends.’. So this game would be a test to all those kids who swear they know their Facebook friends.
Once again, I’ve had another really smart idea. You’re welcome.
