…and here’s why:

As some of you may know, it is festival time here in Edinburgh, Scotland. And by that I mean the Fringe Festival, International Festival, Book Festival, Art Festival and apparently this year, outside my flat, the Taste of Spain festival (aren’t we glad that was only 10 days of blaring music past midnight and bad karaoke).

Anyhow, more on the festival fun/shows etc in detail later, however, my Mister and I (the opposite of a Missus, no?) went to a couple stand up gigs Saturday night, last minute thing, in the pouring rain. It was actually really good. They’re were quite funny, even though not top quality, but both, and it caught my attention then, mentioned in someway or another: Facebook.

Facebook. Not MySpace, not Twitter, not e-mail or Friends Reunited or whatever else is in the blogsphere and doesn’t cross the line over to the more technical minded peeps. I know Twitter boarders.

Even in everyday life, I have noticed that FB will be referenced quite a bit more, and freely, by people without shame, whereas Myspace is a bit, “um…yeah…started it years ago, but never check it…”

iPhone ads: facebook; Columnists in the Independant: facebook; Comedians: facebook.

Even when out the other night, instead of asking for my card, phone number, e-mail address etc, it was “do you have a facebook account?”

Long live facebook?
