Entering the Facebook Era - The Social Networking age takes over

Updated on July 28, 2012

Facebook was born

Finally a place to call our own

MySpace was owned

by the youthful spirited

yet still trapped souls

raging outwards for self expression



Somehow there still was a gap

space to be filled but it wasn't mine

From the digital walls of Harvard



Trembles began to erupt

in the form of Digits

Such a prestigious trap was set



many attempts were made prior

all failed to climb to global status

Someone had tapped

into the all time stream of popularity

Worldwide,

beginning at the Highest point

Of educational stardom


The Ivy League University




the epicenter of it all

What a massive target,

to aim at freeing us all

An idea leading to global unity

must have rung a bell at such a point

Amongst all lonely victims of this cage



The matching of faces was first

then came the connecting of their

juicy content and resourceful personal data

each member

in their computerized cell

Digitally scribed onto their own personal

Profiles,



What's this, each person has their own

No longer needing a website

to attract views, viewers and subscribers

Names, images, lifestyle, love life

age, sex, likes in movies, books, hobbies, famous people

job details, place of origin

Vast amounts of their entire life it seemed

shared across WiFi, wires, and Satellites

to their prison boxed monitors



Let the social network wars begin - Facebook may be unstoppable

Source

Now the stage was set for Battle

The Wall was born

Facebook

was the first of many to come

Soon to spring rise to

the age of RSS feeds


This wasn't no ordinary

computer Hacker or programmer

not by far,

his agenda was different from them all



was he even a student

He was a true genius

in his own right though

He gave it a name

what was it to be called

He might have borrowed it

Paid for such a thievery

once he gained monetary lift off


The social network War began

Facebook was Crowned True victor

A freedom fighter of many

caged behind their screens

tied into such a self defiant over ruling system

The Web


Years blew by and soon FB in short

Was consuming whopping

Huge amounts of digital space

Everything in its path had no choice but to get swept in

the world responded by releasing the Movie

The Social Network


Catch up to part IV

There's a saga going on in the world, and many of us have felt it even at our physical doorsteps, the hold of this worlds economy is on edge, and the digital world is leaving no surface untouched. The next poem is sure going to get much deeper.
