Facebook is most notable for its moronic contribution in turning the whole Internet into lazy authors. Of course, there is a psychology (or biology?) theory stating that people want to do as little as possible to gain the most rewarding outcome. But a LIKE button is not helpful for literacy. Today, everyone can simply click LIKE to show affinity. No more commentaries. No need for words. Just LIKE. In ten years, all the Internet kids will forget how to formulate a meaningful sentence. They will only know how to click LIKE. Their brains dormant for so many years.
I, too, can be laconic. The next time someone leaves a misinterpretation or an inane remark on my blog (some are just too illiterate to grasp the context), I will respond with an ironic LOL. That's to replace such wordiness as: The volume of your discernment is so insignificant that I must stoop as low as a hipster by using some disgraceful generic horror like this hollow abbreviation. Or: You are as irrelevant as a baby rhinoceros in a discotheque.
Please compliment my inane use of time in creating an online demotivating poster to declare my anti-Facebook movement.
