Jimmy Kimmel Calls For “National Unfriend Day” – Facebook Protest

CBS News – Mark Zuckerberg survived Aaron Sorkin, but now he’s up against late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel, a comedian with a message that Facebook’s CEO can’t like very much. Continue Reading…

Jimmy Kimmel has asked his viewers to celebrate “National Unfriend Day” on november 17, 2010. A celebration where Facebook users reduce the amount of friends they have.

The comedian said “Friendship is a sacred thing and I believe Facebook is cheapening it.” Mark Zuckerberg would disagree.

Kimmel also said  “I go on this Facebook, I see people with thousands of what they call ‘friends’ – which is impossible. You can’t have 1,000 friends.”

I wouldn’t give up my Facebook account but I have to agree with Jimmy Kimmel here. There are some people out there that suffer from Facebook overload.

A woman in Florida killed her 3-month old son because his crying interrupted her Facebook game Farmville. That’s crazy.

Facebook has become a dangerous addiction for many of its users. I view this as an extension of Jon Stewart’s & Stephen Colbert’s Rally To Restore Insanity.

Facebook is not real life. But many people, particularly women, view it as real life and live and die by their reputation on the social network.

The only problem with “National Unfriend Day” is that there is no rally. Can you Imagine a “National Unfriend Day” at the National Mall??

It would turn out thousands of people ready to show love. People who want to be with and meet real friends.

Simply picking a day to ‘unfriend’ people is a half-ass approach to the problem. Hey Jimmy….when are we gonna rally??
