it would seem like the livejournal so-called memes have moved to Facebook. The sort of 'Which character in famous movie are you' type quizzes. I thought those things had died in 2004. Never understood their appeal but then, there is so much about pop culture that I don't understand.

Pop culture fandom has a lot to do with bonding. Identifying with the shallow and famous is less risky than having conversations about real things like our feelings, politics and proposing shagging with an emotional context. Because god forbid anybody would risk rejection (:

I think the ones on facebook are more insidious cause they are a form of viral marketing that produces all kinds of data for advertisers. I try to ignore them as much as possible!
