Facebook is air born!

And better yet, it’s free! At least, for February it is.

As reported by Mashable, passengers on a select number of airlines can access their favorite site for free this month. Not too shabby, considering these passengers will have to pay a fee to surf any other pages on the web.

Ridiculous? Possibly, or at least I think so.

As if we couldn’t tell our friends how we feel when we’re 30,000 feet above the ground. This day has been a long time coming.  Thank you, Zuckerberg.

Or actually, no. I’m not okay with this. He should’ve know that most young people, including myself,  won’t be flying until Spring Break in March. And isn’t it the most likely that the younger demographic will want to utilize this offer the most? Jeesh.

Maybe I’m wrong and am underestimating the prevalence of middle-aged and older users on Facebook, but I still think this is comical.

This article was one of the top stories on Mashable’s site today, along with the situation in Egypt. I guess the bizarre point I’m trying to make is that this offer, though generous, is as important to us as are the events occuring elsewhere in the world. There, all technologies have been turned off. Literally.

And in America, we’re celebrating our enhanced access to them.

I’m not sure what to make of this but it’s clear how tech-obsessed we are.
