INDIANAPOLIS – Spending more than nine hours a day on Facebook, one of the site’s 800 million users, Michael Treacher, says he has successfully uploaded his entire life onto the social networking site.
Not only does his profile provide thousands of digital images of day-to-day events, but also outlines his work history, social activities and most of his secret thoughts.
“The LinkedIn app is awesome,” said the 28-year-old Accounts Clerk. “Now my friends can keep up-to-date with which jobs I’m applying for and which former bosses have recommended me. They can even see work-related conversations that I’m having.”
Aside from uploading his business pursuits, Treacher allows friends to see mundane aspects of his life, such as dietary regimens.
“I’ve integrated SparkPeople.com (food and health social networking site) into my Facebook profile. It just helps me remember when I should lower my calorie intake, or eat something with less sugar.”
Sitting down with a nice virtual bottle of beer, Treacher says he likes to relax by watching his favorite movies through YouTube segments shared to his Facebook profile.
“I recently spent six hours watching the entire Back to the Future trilogy with my girlfriend Andrea, who, coincidentally, I met on Facebook.”
Additionally, Treacher routinely uses his Facebook status to outline thoughts he may have had throughout the day.
“I thought it was very annoying that the price of gas went up by twenty cents this past Friday, so I told my Facebook friends all about it. Everything I do, is documented on Facebook.”
Reflecting on the impact Facebook has had on his life, Treacher insisted that he “just likes to have his life organized into one place.”
“Sure, sometimes I use Twitter to make a point. But not before ensuring that all my tweets get redirected to my Facebook wall.”
