I didn't get on Facebook until 2011

And really any social media. I remember looking at MySpace late in high school and thought it was cool that you could keep up with your old classmates, but it was sort of a so-what because if you wanted to do so you already had people you care about's e-mail addresses and AIM handles. Sure there was that you could keep up with people from high school, college, job 1, job 2, et cetera, but it still seemed to me that if you really cared about someone enough to keep up you had their AIM and e-mail (WHICH IS HYPHENATED DAMMIT).
A lot of C-list porn stars had MySpace pages that they'd plug at the end of their videos. I don't know if that was because MySpace was skeezier or more permissive or what, but they never seemed to hawk Facebook pages.
I left an internet trail, too -- hasn't everybody? -- that only I can see.
Yeah, it's weird to think Web 2.0 has been around long enough to have always been there for "Generation Z". It seems that just last week that we were the Time men of the year, which is a convenient starting demarcation.
Everyone now in high school was born in the 2000s, if you want to feel old.
