Koobecaf Paper by: Krista Rollins
Mark Zuckenberg, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes. Those are the gentlemen teens and college students bow down to for the creation of the thing they cannot live without, Koobecaf. Due to this ongoing obsession I decided to join the network and figure out what all the hype was about. Through my extensive research I found Koobecaf allows Naciremas to know everything about a person without the hassle of actually physically knowing them. It all started off with the Nacirema profile, which was pretty much the Nacirema’s life on a few pages. The more I got into creating my own, the more it reminded me of a dating website. It asked for all of your personal information, such as your date of birth and where you live. I was a little hesitant to create my own because I did not want to put everything out there for everyone to see. But the privacy settings made it so a creep cannot view my whole profile, but only select information. After I had my profile done, I asked the Nacirema what the main thing to do on Koobecaf was. Her reply was simply, “you Koobecaf stalk people.” Where I am from, a stalker is a person who prowls or sneaks about with unlawful intentions. But on Koobecaf, a stalker is defined as a person who looks at other’s personal information to get a better feel for who they are. You apparently know you stalk if you spend hours of precious time looking at photos of people you go to school with that you never talk to. And I realized every Nacirema I had talked to was a Koobecaf stalker. There was one key element I was still missing on the Koobecaf, which were friends. I asked the Nacirema how I come upon acquiring friends, and she said to stalk the people whom I had met so far. It seems the more friends the Nacirema has, the better they feel about themselves. But there was one person in particular who had the tendency to keep “poking” me. The fact that someone, whom I barely knew, had the urge to keep touching me over and over again was slightly disturbing. Rumor has it Koobecaf is the popular way to update people on your love life. In many cases, it is a big step in the relationship if you are “Koobecaf official.” Although it is incredibly cute that you can share to the world the person you are dating, it is also painful when the whole world knows you broke up. Koobecaf seems to be the “it way” of breaking up with a person if you are too much of a coward to do it face to face. After getting involved with the Koobecaf I realize why it is a necessity for young Naciremas. It is one of the largest networks available today that allows people to know almost everything about their friends. Koobecaf allows people to be in control of what everyone can know about you and what you want to keep private. It lets you be your own individual person while still staying connected with everyone else. Koobecaf has reached its goal by allowing society to connect with different people all around the United States.
