Folks are asked to give up something in memory of Christ's sacrifice for them before Easter. So some have decided to give up Facebook.
Now that's a sacrifice. Giving up Facebook for Lent can be stressful and remind folks of what was long ago given up for them, which was life itself of Jesus Christ. For some, Facebook is life itself, hence the notion of sacrifice. The media is reporting this phenomenon, so perhaps it is coming to the student community in a town near you.
Facebook is a social community with many members. The small and the mighty hang out there. It allows people to create a network of friends that can support one another in various enterprises. In addition it is a spot for the lost and the lonely to interact. A person can be anyone he or she wants to be because people have a user name and can make of their personality and looks anything. A 50-year-old woman can be intimately involved in conversation with a 20-year-old guy, and who's the wiser.
So giving up something attractive has to be difficult for some people. Those who get their kicks from Route Facebook tricks are going to be hungry for getting attention and feedback somewhere.
Now giving up Facebook is one thing, but Digital Journal?
How about the library?
