Myface.com

So, at the last meeting of my class, Seminar in Critical Problems, we discussed an article about hypertext and its literary implications. While commenting on a related article, one decrying the electronic overexposure of today’s youth, the professor mentioned “Myface”. This spoonerism provoked smiles of delight on three faces. Mine was one of them.

After class, I approached one of the other amused students and said, “Hey, I keep meaning to send you a link to my Myface profile.”

He replied, “Cool. You should check out my Spacebook page.”

Myface. Spacebook. That really captures the essence of social networking sites, doesn’t it?
