Seinfeld Calls Out Facebook in the 90s

facebookThe classic Seinfeld episode "The Bubble Boy" originally aired in 1992. Below is the intro in which Jerry calls out Facebook.

Ok, so he's talking about the answering machine, but it might as well be Facebook. It's the same deal...

On Facebook, I'm down to a modest 56 friends. I'm also one of the remaining few checking Google+ every day and hoping you all buy in. On Google+ I'm here, and if you add me to a circle, I'll add you back.

The minutiae of other people's lives on Facebook exhausted me more than it was worth to stay on the site, so I gladly committed Facebook suicide about a year ago.

But, my account is still up there apparently. If anyone knows a way I can haul it off there, do tell.

The problem with Facebook, Mike, is many, many people are best remembered the way they were, not the way they are.

It's a pretty tight list. Super pruned.

Like, family... and close friends and stuff.

Many awesome casual acquaintances were cut!
