Facebook Status Update Awards


Okay, we have embraced Facebook and welcomed it into our lives - it has become a major influence and powerful manipulator of public opinion. We already give awards for many entities in our culture - it seems time to initiate the same for Facebook.

Samples of inane updates
The response to most of these is: "So what?" "Who cares?" Are the lives of these people so ego-driven that they feel we must know these details?



Sweet sentiments that should be said in person, not on Facebook:
