Why people are spending 2 hours on facebook

Today, I heard twice from 2 different sources that people are spending 2 hours a day on Facebook.

I’ve been pretty busy the last 2.5 weeks.  In-laws in town, sister in town, skiing, two old friends in town, wearing my 3 work hats.  And dammit none of it is making me enough money… ESPECIALLY trying to figure out Facebook.

So I get the social networking thing of facebook.  Fabulous, really.  I’ve had TWO old friends from high school that I haven’t seen since graduation find me on Facebook.  But someone keeps posting on my funwall.  I don’t even know what a funwall is!  And I keep getting these damn gifts from people, the most recent was a martini.  So what am I supposed to do with that?  I can’t drink it.  Do I post on their funwall?  Do I send them a wall-to-wall?  Do I send them an email?  Do I send them a gift?

I’ve spent hours on Facebook, and while I get what they are trying to do, I’m still trying to figure out HOW they are doing it.  So my theory is that people are spending 2 hours on Facebook trying to figure out what they’re supposed to be doing on Facebook!  Someone give me a demo please, I really don’t have time for the discovery.
