20 Celebrities Who Really Hate the Internet

Zadie Smith

What About The Internet?: Facebook

Why: "When a human being becomes a set of data on a website like Facebook, he or she is reduced. Everything shrinks. Individual character. Friendships. Language. Sensibility. In a way it's a transcendent experience: we lose our bodies, our messy feelings, our desires, our fears...Or maybe the whole Internet will simply become like Facebook: falsely jolly, fake-friendly, self-promoting, slickly disingenuous."-The New York Review of Books, November 25, 2010
