The Facebook Ending: Here’s Looking At You, Zuckerberg

Watching Casablanca, I realized that the “For All We Know, We’ll Never Meet Again” WWII ending would lose much of its poignancy in the age of Facebook. Yes, Isle and Rick might never meet again but today they would  follow each other on Facebook and one day Skype.

Here, Katie and Hubbel, Scarlet and Rhett, Newland Archer and  Countess  Olenska and their long, romantic  movie goodbyes  before texts, Twitter and the need to  proclaim our relationship status on Facebook. Goodbye, my love. We’ll always have Instagram.
