Digital Ouroboros

This showed up on my Facebook page today:

wtf so meta

Isn’t this like the pope blessing himself?  Like Steve Jobs giving himself an iPod?  Like a snake eating its own tail?

It’s so unnecessary!  If you’re on Facebook, you don’t need to “like” it, too.  We know you like it because you’re using it!  *sigh*  It strikes me as masturbatory.  How much of an ego stroking does a company worth over a billion dollars really need?  My participation isn’t enough, now you need me to explicitly say that I like you?  Relax, Facebook.  You’re sounding more and more like a needy boyfriend, and it’s really unattractive.
