No, I'm not ranting about the "new Facebook" (although I did like the old one better, but I'm sure I'll just get used to the new one eventually) and I'm not ranting about how much of a time-waster Facebook is (although it certainly is that). My rant has to do with getting friended by people that I haven't seen or talked to, or in some cases, even thought about in almost 20 years, and there's no message at all. Just "Roger Daltrey added you as a friend on Facebook." (Good old Roger-- I need to catch up with him).
You can't just do that. It would be like bumping into someone you haven't seen for 20 years at the mall, smiling and saying, "Hello," and then you just keep walking. It's a drive-by friending. I don't like that-- there needs to be some sort of acknowledgement of the fact that we're long lost friends. Don't you agree? Bad Facebook etiquette. I mean, if we're going to be Facebook friends, that has to mean something.
