fb status updating

when i first joined facebook, i adopted a paradigm of posting a new status at least once a week. this was mainly influenced by the fact that after a week, the status update on the profile page view would "expire" and disappear. not too long after that i addendum'ed that with the rule that i wouldn't do a status update more than once in a twenty-four hour period.

i still adhere to the idea that i shouldn't post a status update more than once in a twenty-four hour period, but i do post status updates often enough as a general rule that the status would never expire and disappear from the top of my profile page.

except *now*, with the new facebook profile page, status updates don't appear up there at all and thus would never have a context in which they would expire or disappear. and that makes me think that that should trigger a different sort of facebook philosophy when it comes to updates. i'm not sure what that would be, though, and in the end it really doesn't matter because it's not like anyone would really notice and facebook is pretty fluffy anyway.

I remember it was 2006 when "status updates" were introduced. I made mine say "Laurel is masturbating", thinking it would be funny to see that on top of my page, and beneath it, it would say "30 days ago" or something. And this was before people could comment on statuses. Imagine my disappointment when I learned they expire after a week =/
