Facebook turns friends into strangers.

In other news, shiat is not attracted to flies.

The more often people use Facebook, the less intelligent they become.

meat0918: Facebook turns friends into strangers.


Yup. Facebook made me lose a lot of respect for people that I care about. The more I saw the stupid, inane, derpy bullshiat my friends posted, the less I wanted to have anything to do with them. So I quit. I swear that Facebook turns otherwise intelligent people into drooling morons.

I know for a fact that if I let my daughter use facebook beyond an hour she turns into a grumpy b**h,
How the heck can someone use facebook for more than 5 or 10 minutes is beyond me.

Facebook is a support group for narcissists that can't be alone

Facebook doesn't make me depressed, but reading the shiat most people post makes me want to shoot myself.

I like Facebook because it helps me identify what type of person I'm dealing with by quickly scanning their wall. Everyone falls into four basic groups and their posts reflect their membership:

1. The Woe Is Me
- Every status has something to do with a personal tragedy, an illness, or generalized negative emotion.

"Kids are sick again. Will this ever end?"
"I miss you so much mom. I'm scared that cancer runs in our genes. I wish you could hold me until the tests results come back."
"Why does it feel like everyone at work hates me?" (Most likely this person has two or three co-workers as friends).

2. The Constantly Critical
- Every status / comment questions someone else's way of doing things, typically with snark.

"Wow, just wow. Never thought I'd see a mother just drop her kid off at the bus stop. I guess career women don't have time to wait."
"My asshole husband is driving me crazy. If he leaves his towel on the bathroom floor again, I'm going to divorce him. Such an asshole."
"Maybe he wouldn't have broken up with you if you'd been honest from the beginning."

3. The Vague
- This person wants to draw you in by posting vaguely.

"Wow, just wow."
"Assholes..."
"Why Jesus? Why me again?"

4. The Terminator

- Purposefully and violently aggressive, even to people they barely know.

"YOU STUPID farkING RACIST PIECE OF shiat. WHY DON'T YOU SAY YOUR OBAMA REMARKS TO MY FACE?"
"Who the fark are you and why are you posting on my girlfriend's wall?"

By identifying the personality type, you can sell them Amway.

waiting for Facebook to load and/or dealing with the interface change of the week does cause depression however.
 
2012-07-11 12:13:32 PM
Facebook certainly depresses me. It's just a sad, pathetic place. Or maybe that's just me and my friends. What if facebook is awesome for everyone else but me? Am I missing out on the big party that is social networking? Am I just a complete loser who can't find any cool friends who actually make facebook fun? Maybe I should click on more of the "cool and trending" links? That way I'll know more about what everyone is talking about on FB! Wow, that was stupid. I shared the link but no one commented on it. Was I stupid for sharing that? Are people thinking "Wow, what a noob Jenna Tellya is for sharing that video" What if they don't like the video and are judging me for posting it? I can't take facebook anymore. I'll just go polish the floors and think about how pathetic I am for being friendless. Thanks for the depression, facebook!

See, the Facebook hate always confused me, until I realized most people's facebook experience was like:

Whereas I have one or two people who post annoying statuses, and the rest are basically funny pictures, cats, or funny pictures of cats.

That was my experience as well.

Also, articulate in face to face interactions doesn't translate to being about spell online.

those are pretty good...but there is also the true narcissist that posts pictures of themselves constantly and makes everything about her. (my cousin, she is hidden now)

I had a couple friends that biatch constantly...they are hidden as well.

spentmiles: I like Facebook because it helps me identify what type of person I'm dealing with by quickly scanning their wall. Everyone falls into four basic groups and their posts reflect their membership:


5. The Validator
- Every status has political or religious content seeking nothing more than validation or their chosen faith or political leanings, who's with me?

"I'm off to the doctor for my yearly physical, pray for me"
"only 4 more months until the Kenyan born socialist is voted out of office, yay America"
"Jesus is lord"

6. The Challenger
- Every status is a shallow call to arms. Not liking the things they like is seen as a personal affront.

"Like this photo if you can find the kitty"
"repost this as your status if you love your kids"
"sign my petition to end the senseless something of something"


I have a personal rule that after 3 status updates with any of these items, I move that person to "important updates only". If further drivel makes through that thin filter, I unsubscribe or unfriend. This has served me well.

I have a couple of Facebook Friends who I added for OK reasons at one time, but now I feel morally obligated to retain them. Given their occasional passive-agressive outbursts at their singnificant others detailing some very disturbing behaviors of those individuals, I have to keep being a Friend in case their FB postings go silent. Then, at that time, I'll call their local police department to go by their home for a welfare check, and hopefully find the murdered corpse.

I just saw on Facebook that if you have a page as a band, company, etc rather than an individual that about only 14% receive your status updates whether or not they selected to see all your posts. Only 14%! And if you want to send something to all the people who have liked your page, you'll have to pay $30 a post every time.

I don't know how true this is, but this'll definitely keep musicians on MySpace and piss everyone else out by charging a pay as you go social network

I know I know, but it's plausible in the sense people acquire fans for the purposes of having a broad base of a captive audience. The fact that Facebook would facilitate and then charge for it is not out of the realm of possibility for me.

It's not $30, but they were testing a $2 fee for making your posts stand out. "A user in Whangerei, New Zealand, said he was offered a $2(US; £1.25) price, and that the post would have been displayed on a yellow background.

Facebook spokeswoman Mia Garlick confirmed to Stuff NZ that the idea was a new "feature" it was testing. "


So it's not entirely a joke or hoax.

Looks like that test turned into 'promoted posts' - where they tack your post to to the top of friends news feeds to make sure they are seen.

Facebook haters and hipsters are no different.

Except for the people who have never even had Facebook to begin with. They're so cool that they hate one of the world's biggest technological advancements in communication. Wow, you're so special that I bet you don't have a cellphone or a TV either.
