Many of my Facebook friends ask me to become a Facebook fan of them.
No, thank you!
None of the people who’ve asked me to become a fan of them have done anything worth making me a fan of them.
None of the people who have done things worthy of fandom have created their own Facebook fan page and asked me to join.
The less people accomplish, the more they need to trumpet it. People with genuine accomplishment don’t need to shore up their identity with boasting.
PS. I just noticed that a high school Jewish friend of mine has declared on Facebook that he’s married. I wonder if this is binding by Jewish law? Well, he’s not Orthodox, so I guess no Jewish law is binding (it gets a vote, not a veto).
