Paul Weller: Facebook Is a Waste of Time

The rocker even talked about his dislike of the social networking website in his latest album 'Wake Up the Nation'.


Rocker Paul Weller will not be joining Facebook any time soon - he's blasted social networking websites as "distracting" and a waste of time. The former The Jam frontman's representatives have set up an account on the popular site to keep fans up-to-date with his album releases and tour dates.

But the singer/songwriter is adamant he avoids using networking websites himself, because he's convinced they have a negative effect on society. Weller takes aim at Facebook in a song on his latest album "Wake Up the Nation", and he tells NME, "I do think that technology is good for certain things, but I do also think that the a**e end of that is there's just a lot of time wasted, staring at a screen, talking to cyber-friends. And I don't get that, really."

"I think it's a way of distracting people from what's really happening. I do think there's an element of that. I think it's the new opium of the masses, personally. All the things that I don't like about that... I would have thought that would be enough for any new generation to kick against."
