Facebook has been compared to "Hotel California"

Facebook has been compared to "Hotel California"

It seems that Facebook, much like Petite Maoiste's generous host, Google, keeps an eternal archive of everything which means one can never delete one's profile out of Facebook. Which seems oddly fitting. Much like life itself. You try to do the best you can, you make mistakes. The mistakes never leave your memory. Even if you try to make amends, somehow you always feel regret. There are those things that you want to forget. Yet you cannot. Like an eternal high school or college reunion, an ex, or a former friend, there is something (someone) out there that will remind you of who you once were, even though you have moved on!
