This morning, I learnt that the Internet just got a little more ridiculous.
Immediately after posting a comment on Yen's blog, this window popped up.
"If your invitation is accepted, you'll be friends."
I couldn't help laughing. I really felt like telling the pop-up that we were already friends, and pretty good ones too!
But what was more surprising was the discovery that Blogger now has 'followers'. I found out, upon logging in a few minutes ago, that my blog has a Follower.
"Followers are people interested in your blog."
All this while I thought 'readers' are the people interested in my blog. I do appreciate 'commenters', but this inclusion of 'followers' was a new revelation indeed.
The moment I saw the word, I started to imagine myself as Jesus, and it was a thoroughly absurd few seconds of realising I'm probably the last person people should follow.
Next thing I know, Facebook is going to have Disciples or something.
Such is cyber-communication these days.
