I don't want to be your friend: Facebook for Freshman

In the last month I've had about half a dozen Facebook friend requests. You'd think I'd be overjoyed, yea! More friends! But I'm not. Because. Because they're all 14 year old girls with their first Facebook account trying to accumulate as many friends as possible. They're friends with my cousin's 14 year old daughter and are clicking on the suggested friends links.

How do you know they don't think you're an awesome role-model & want to be your friends to hear your opinions?

While I am awesome, no parent wants me as their child's role-model, and my opinion is not intended for a 14 year old audience.

So why do you care? I care because I was once a 14 year old girl. And I can only imagine that if these girls are sending me friend requests they are also sending friend requests to another real-life friend's less-than- scrupulous uncle who has a massive collection of kiddie porn on a hidden hard drive.

Oh My God, Katie, how could you think something like that? Because when I'm knitting or painting I have Law and Order SVU on the TV.
