Everyone is using social networking sites thesedays. A lot of people using Myspace, Friendster, Hi5 and Facebook just to name a few, boast of having 500 or more friends on their list.
Some social networking users have become disillusioned with virtual "friend"-seekers and are voicing their frustrations in parody sites, such as Hatebook, Enemybook, and Snubster. By collecting "enemies" instead of "friends" they mock the importance that other social networkers place on adding "friends," people they may not know or even communicate with after "friending" them. Enemybook is now an application available on Facebook that allows its' users to maintain an "Enemies" list in addition to their "Friends" list. In a nod to the Facebook "poke" feature which allows users to send their "friends" actions like "hugs," Enemybook offers the "SuperFlipOff!" And in the true tradition of virtual ambiguity, many users employ these applications simply as a joke, so that they now have real enemies and online "enemies."
