FB Graffiti: Reviving Ancient impulses

Modern technologies can revive ancient impulses. The Chrome plug-in FB Graffity, by programmer Joel Simon, adapts the graffiti mentality to the virtual world, urns photo albums and Facebook posts into a digital cave.
Turning the original metaphor of Facebook - the wall - into a digital cave, the extension lets anyone “vandalize” the pictures shared by other users on the social media. As prehistoric cave paintings, all drawings are public, anonymous and permanent, without undo or erase options.
Modernity has tried to whitewash our tribal spirit, but our inner caveman is irrepressible!
