: : Article with terms relating to Facebook. Examples:
: : Face-Crack: Ah, the phenomenon of being addicted to Facebook. You're just dying to log on now and take another quiz or send another beer to a friend or tag another photo from your high school reunion, aren't you? Just say no!
: : Face-Woe: The opposite of Face-brag. This is the dark habit of only updating your Facebook status area with sad or depressing news -- "Larry is crying. R.I.P. Jinxy -- greatest cat ever" -- in an effort to get 458 comments of support from your friends.

: The Facebook world may be way past irony or even sarcasm. But I appreciate the effort made in the posted article. The most successful parody of the blogging, Twittering and Facebooking preoccupation is that found in the Doonesbury comic strip. I can't point to any particular strip, as Garry Trudeau, the creator of Doonesbury, likes to develop a theme over a number of strips.
Facecrack is another name for Facebook itself (cf Evercrack/Everquest, World of Warcrack, etc.) Another great day for headline writers and editors who don't understand the article. Don't be a Facebook.
