Michael Bloomberg Still Hates Social Networking, Says Things Like ‘Re-Facebooked’

Michael Bloomberg has never been shy about admitting his utter disdain for social networking. Given the opportunity to comment about Twitter or Facebook, Bloomberg will trash it as much as possible. Here’s the latest example, captured by Capital New York:

Number one, I don’t understand why people don’t understand that anything you write, anything you send out, is gonna be retweeted, re-Facebooked, re-this, re-that. You should write down, number one, only things you believe, and number two, then think about how it would look if somebody else sees it. There are just a lot of young kids who are doing things on their Twitter account, their Facebook account, that later on is gonna come back and bite them.

Re-Facebooked! Oh man, we love it.

The irony here, of course, is that this is all coming from Bloomberg, who — despite staying away from the evils of social networking — has said plenty of stupid things.
