I've passed Peak Facebook, personally. FB's plan to make FB synonymous with the internet isn't working for me. I don't even use it on my browser anymore. Why TF would I want to "like" Samsung or Walmart or shiat like that? Then they start posting shiat on my wall. And I can't care less what companies my friends like.

I like to use FB like my own personal Fark thread (partially since mods don't greenlight my shiat). Often it's to share a link I found on Fark. And sometimes I like to argue with my extended family when I'm bored or surly. But I only interact with people I know. If I'm going to argue/debate/talk with random assholes on the 'net, it's going to be on Fark.

Get the fark off my lawn.

I don't know which is worse... the hijacking and ruining of threads by certain people, or the ruining and hijacking of threads by people who obviously don't know how to GIS for tits wondering where the certain thread ruiners went.

FTA: The other major recent innovation is electronic gift cards, which are basically just another way to give cash.

Or it's a way to buy clothes for your wife/girlfriend that they don't send to goodwill because you lost the tags, AND gives them shopping time to pick what they want, and since it's a gift card for something specific rather than cash it's a blatant "yes, go buy yourself clothes you like" stamp without weird relationship politics like her wondering "Why did he just leave me fifty bucks on the dresser next to a half eaten candy cane?"

Thank you, subby, for using "gift giving" in the headline. As opposed to "gifting", which was used repeatedly in TFA. A "gift" is something you GIVE. You don't GIFT it.

// for fark sake.
