Now Uncool

The FB state of affairs at The Verge:

  • It's a chore.
  • “Sharing” was a fad, once cool, now uncool.

At some point, adding these details, like hundreds of photos from a recent vacation and status updates about your new job amounted to braggingforce-feeding Facebook friends information they didn’t ask for. What was once cool was now uncool.

Add to that the recent scandal of FB sharing your personal info with the government (more about that later), and last cool of Facebook may be the cool of a jail cell.
