David Brooks finally noticed that twentysomethings are using the web to find love and friendship:
Go to MySpace.com or Facebook or Xanga or any of the other online sites where people leave messages on the home pages of their friends and you’ll see these great waves of praise and encouragement. People visit their friends’ pages and drop lovebombs. There’s scarcely a critical word about anyone or anything in the whole social network. It’s just fervent declarations of friendship, vows to get together soon and memories of great times gone by.
Statistically speaking, by the times Brooks picks up on a social trend, it’s almost over. So before long, Twixters will go back to hooking up the old fashioned way –
– through cleavage and vodka.
Hey, it worked for me.
