|Wish You Were Here!|
Sometimes I like to imagine a world where my personal internet space wasn't clogged up with baby pictures, overly-emotional status updates or Before and After weight loss pics, but then I remember I that I am a member of Facebook and that is just standard operating procedure.
But at least those annoying pictures can't bother me in the real world right?
Oh, how wrong I am.
Soon Facebook will start allowing a select group of beta testers to turn their horrible pictures into actual postcards and FUCKING MAIL THEM OUT to various unsuspecting "friends".
Oh glorious day.
I can't wait to open up my mail box and find this nestled beside my Archie McPhee catalog:
Here's how this will supposedly work- "...A select group of Facebook users — maybe even you! — can now find a new option when looking at photos called "mail a postcard." Once the desired photo is selected, it becomes one side of the card, and you have the ability to enter personalized text on the other. You can then address it from memory or use an option to ask your recipients for their physical mailing addresses.[Tecca]
Facebook isn't saying how much this new feature will eventually cost or when it will be available for everyone to use, but one thing is for certain, snail-mail is going to start getting scary.
You might want to start praying to Cthulhu right now that no one knows where you live.
