Just Like A Real App

Binky supports all the other stuff you do to make you feel like you're Doing Something while waiting for the bus or whatever. See a bink you like? You can Like it! You can also re-bink your binks, whatever that means. Do whatever the hell you want in Binky -- no one will ever see it.

It's more than they deserve.

Let me see if I understand this correctly.

This is a way to appear to be wrapped up in social media walking down the street, riding the bus, eating alone in a restaurant, etc without actually doing so.

Sort of like the old "boss button" idea but for the whole world.

Wouldn't want folks to think you're not doing your social media, right?

Right? :|

Yeah sure. "Ironic". :roll:

But if the app really exists and people are really using it, then they are really using it. Because they still look like they are doing social media and no one knows how "ironic" they are.

Perhaps I'm wrong (but don't give much of a fuck :P ) – I based that mostly on the logo. How people use the app is a different matter.
