That is so cute.

dexaline: NeoCortex42: The rule of thumb should be that if you are worried about any one of your friends seeing a particular post or piece of information, don't post it. Also, never friend your boss. That should reduce Facebook complaints by about 95%.

Also, never friend anyone who is friends with your boss.


How about assuming that any hijinks you post will be available for anyone to see?

/friends with boss, friends with my employees

My stupid phone wouldn't load most of them. Bah!

It would have if they'd been on a facebook page

macadamnut: Shaggy_C: People sometimes hit incorrect keys while typing, creating humorous spelling errors. This phenomenon is known as a "typo".

A subset of these people effortlessly proofread what they type as they type. They are known as "literate".


Other people like to discuss these things at great length, They are known as "My machete hacking victims."

OhioUGrad: filter: OhioUGrad: filter: How is it a privacy nightmare? I never post anything questionable, and have a locked down profile.

Facebook still has any info you post, like, whatever, and sells that to companies......in case you've missed any news for the past like 2-3 years.

Really??? You mean, if I give them info, they have my info? No shiat?!


That is my point- only give them what you want them to have. That is not a privacy issue. A privacy issue is if your ISP sells your browsing habits to third parties.

So, you've missed all the news stories about Facebook tracking you all over the net, and selling that information? There was a big story earlier this year about how they had some secret tracker that was almost impossible to delete. And saying they won't sell your info that you give them, and then selling it, is a privacy issue as well.


I don't share cookies with third parties, and have one browser specifically for FB. I hated seeing my FB ID linked up on sites like Huff Po without my consent. But what they do is no different than what Google does. It is just less effective.

But I see your point--- but it is a different privacy issue than what most people are concerned about: user submitted content.

Every one of these was fake. Not that Facebook is the greatest or anything, but come on. I've seen most of these before.

The closest thing I ever had to a facebook account was somebody in one of my classes who didn't know my name and thought I had been talking to them on facebook.

"Hey John. John. JOHN."

Followed by the "This is not the droid you are looking for" type conversation.

topcon: The "Goodbye America, Hello New York" was obviously a joke.


But it's what Republicans reallly believe.

And next to the "Like" button, they left the "i" out of the "Commie" button.

Live life to the follest!

Answer to the question: What is the most important lesson you take away from "La Cage aux Folles"? (French original, not the sappy American remake with the nonetheless delightful Hank Azaria and Robin Williams.)

The famous Eiffel Tower of New York City.

And it's mispelled.

Most of my "friends" on Facebook are people I hated in high school, ex-coworkers/clients, old friends that moved away or relatives I see maybe once per year. Kinda convenient to keep up with people without having to contact them directly. Also girls who use it as a diary or drama cauldron make it amusing. OMG my babydaddy b TRIPPIN he must thnk my lyfe stops jus cuz he in prison. imma keep doin me, hmu #idontknowwhathashtagsarefor

Sorry Brantgoose, but this is a dead thread.

/wait, . .

dofus: Facebook serves a useful purpose. If you're talking to someone and they mention they use Facebook a fair amount, you know right then and there that they're idiotic. Double the points for Twitter.

/There's a Firefox plug in that eliminates almost all references to Facebook
//Even wipes out those little annoying 'like' buttons attached to everything



So is Facebook the new AOL?

In a roundabout way. Facebook is the new MySpace which was the new Geocities which was the new AOL. Same derp but with less blinking text and garish colors.

padraig: Number 12 is just a typo. It's really not at all on the level of the 26 other ones.


1,2,3,8,9,11,13,16 and 19 are all intended to be humorous. Damn you people facebook is serious business!

Ima4nic8or: Never used facebook, probably never will. By the time I sort of started thinking about joining I started hearing about all the issues with lack of privacy and facebook's general disrespect for their users privacy. No thanks guys.


Thank God! At least I know I'm not alone. Pleased to me you!

qsblues: How about an article that lists the reasons why it's a bad idea to have 7 billion people on the planet, and some ideas of how to thin out the herd?


A good case of cholera.

Wipe out everyone over 70 and under 7.

I almost can't argue with that. I mean, kindergartners are cute, but would the world be worse off without them?
