I'm growing increasingly worried about my Facebook friends.
They seem to be disappearing.
This happens all the time now: The little indicator in the corner of my screen says I have, say, eight "online friends." Sounds good. I click on it and the little window pops up ostensibly to display my eight "online friends" and their chat status. But wait! The little window pops up to a couple of inches in height, then immediately shrinks down to an inch or so, and both it and the indicator now aver that I have, say, five "online friends."
What has happened to those three missing "online friends"??
Is anybody looking for them? Can I be the only one who's noticed their disappearance?
Or is someone systematically "disappearing" anyone who notices the disappearances of all these "online friends"?
In which case it's entirely possible that I am in grave dange--
