There are over 3 billion active users on Facebook. Not using Facebook hardly qualifies Highlander as being a timid follower. Besides, how do you know those who dislike or choose to not use Facebook are merely trend-followers and not thoughtful individuals who are arriving at the same logical conclusion as other thoughtful people?

Fun fact, the creator of Oculus, Brendan Iribe, is a family friend of one of my old friends, so I've met him a couple times. He sold it to Facebook for $4 billion and he has a building named after him here at UMD. Very cool guy
