how's your farm?
I stopped playing in Facebook sometime last year but boredom made me get back to it again. If all of these crops in my farm were real, I would have been healthier and richer too.
However, everything is just virtual. Things can get crazy. Like one time I was "IMing" with my mom and she said she was cooking some caramel apples. I was like, "Wow, I didn't know she's into cooking those stuff now." I realized later that she meant cooking in one of her games in Facebook.
I have to admit. I have a mild case of addiction to the Internet, just like most people. It can come in many forms like updating statuses in Facebook, following Twitter updates or just scanning photos in Flickr. But it has some good points too. Meeting up with family in an online farm seems more innovative and fun compared to plain virtual conferencing.
Every time I arrive home from work, I turn the PC on, connect to the Internet and my second life starts. I barely have time to sleep. Whoever first thought of online games and social networking sites must have came from the future.
Privacy issues? I don't know. I think I've given that up the day I started blogging. Guess I'll see you all in Facebook or Twitter or Google Buzz then.
