What not to say in your Facebook Status Update

Modern life in a post-industrial society poses numerous problems for humanity: social alienation, anomie and above all, what to say in your Facebook Status Update. While the first two problems are a bit harder to tackle, Wired magazine has come up with a top ten of what not to say in your Facebook Status Update.

There are some interesting suggestions from "Rubbing cream on that thing I noticed last weekend", "D'oh! Accidentally trimmed my pickin' nail", and the succinct yet profound "Jesus, I'm lonely". But it's the practical question, "Does anyone know the age of consent in Kentucky?", which really takes the biscuit.

Sadly the article fails to address the major problem posed by Facebook Status Updates: the existential crisis created by having to speak about yourself in the third person.
