    HAHAHAH!! I was a myspace junkie for the LOOOONGEST, so it's natural for me to hate on Facebook. ^_^

    Great find!

    Thanks for using it!

    i think the cafe owners put this sign up partly in jest after getting sick of hearing everyone ask about what they saw on facebook etc. as if that was all life is about!
