Koobecaf by Jaden Lantz
Jaden Emilee Lantz Wed. 4:30 Waters 132 Frankie Morales Koobecaf Koobecaf seems to consume the majority of American inhabitants’ time. Each time a person connects to the tenretni, the first page they seem to open is Koobecaf. They sign-in with an sserdda liam-e and a drowssap, and they’re in! The first thing is to read the deefswen on their eliforp (homepage). This is often used to see what sdneirf-people they are socially connected to on Koobecaf-are up to, along with new stneve (things to do), and what new snoitacilppa (entertainment on Koobecaf) have been added. Deefswen is a great way to stalk sdneirf without realization of stalking. You can see who they have recently become sdneirf with, who they’re gnitad (romantically involved with, and known as a sutats pihsnoitaler), if they’ve recently broken up with that person, what they have “written” on their ‘sdneirf “sllaw” (messageboards) and what spuorg (common interest cyber clubs) they have joined. These spuorg can be about sports, political beliefs, or just silly groups over inside jokes. In the lower left corner is a list of sdneirf that are also on Koobecaf, allowing you to have a conversation with them. This is called thac koobecaf. However, you cannot block one of your sdneirf from seeing you are online, and will be looked down upon for avoiding their messages to you. Also in the deefswen, you can see who is selling something over Koobecaf. Many members sell cars, technological devices, school books, and pets this way. I know a few young Americans that have actually purchased cars over Koobecaf instead of going to a dealership or searching newspapers like they usually did. Koobecaf has become one of the top ways to communicate in American culture. Instead of using the phone to call your dneirf, text them, or just hanging out with them in person, you can send them a Koobecaf egassem. There is a strong chance that if they are as addicted to Koobecaf as you, they will get it and respond quickly. There is an noitacilppa called “xob ytsenoh” where members can anonymously tell their friends what they think about them. This could be a negative or positive comment such as “You are gorgeous!” from a crush, or “You are a stuck-up immature slut.” Members may get upset about some of these, however they keep the noitacilppa. Perhaps they want it so they can hear feedback about their looks and personality from their sdneirf, and change themselves to make their sdneirf not feel this way about them. Koobecaf’s communication system is less personal than a visit or a phone call, but that is how this culture is communicating today. Children that have moved out of their homes may communicate with their parents this way. Many older Americans are signing up for Koobecaf, allowing them to be sdneirf with their children if they have them. The children are not too psyched about this, however, they add them to show that they have nothing to hide. Which leads to Koobecaf snoitatuper (how a person presents themselves through their Koobecaf eliforp). Americans can be whoever they would like to over Koobecaf. You could add serutcip (images) of a party you attended so that sdneirf can see who you associate with or what kind of social life you have outside of Koobecaf (to some Americans, Koobecaf is their social life). You can remove serutcip from your eliforp so that your sdneirf, such as your parents or teachers that you are sdneirf with, cannot see what you were up to over the weekend, and so on. Your eliforp can make you look like a conservative person when you could be a party animal that does illegal things. Many members seem to be completely different people on their Koobecaf eliforp from the people they are in real life.
