Facebook Sucks

[schart]FB[/schart]

I agree with CA who posted in another thread.  I also think this deserves its own home on CG. 

I am disgusted with "F" all over the Fucking Internet.  As if everyone naturally wants to announce to the world where they live, work and gleefully divulge daily living habits.  CA:  many successful writers have been ardent individualists.  That doesn't mean you're cut off from the world, but that you have developed a strong sense of self that should never be diluted by the swill circulating FB, and provides the strength you need for creative, independent thought.

Facebook Sucks.  Join us.

Facebook is the new AOL.  It wants to be all things on the Internet.  I really dislike how their service has overtaken comment discussions on news sites.

I enjoy the Random Stupid Things On Your Mind topic.  The free association quanta is near perfect for me, for lurking or participating.

But reexamining/rethinking your participation with/on facebook is the opposite of that thread's heading in that to do such is a focused and intelligent action.

Starting this as a stand alone topic is a very good idea.

I am glad MV posted the first kinetic domino on that thread - the "Zuckerberg No Tip Incident."

Facebook sucks in a way that dwarfs Noory's transgressions.

Which is no small statement.

MK: "a strong sense of self that should never be diluted by the swill circulating FB," is hammer to nail's head.

It was cybernetic arsenic. I rationalized as long as possible in fear of losing  "networking value," but I decided such value as defined by facebook, was an illusion.

It would be funny if they became the new MySpace.  I seem them as the new AOL (as slipstream said earlier) or the new Yahoo.  Huge and powerful for a time, then they'll sort of fall off.  But they'll still be really big and will stick around, even though no one really knows why they still exist.

EFNet was once ground zero for the world's population of angry asshole nerds.

marc... i took the liberty of adding a real-time stock chart to your first post here so that we can all watch it crash together as chuckles abound.


edit:  you can place this same chart anywhere on the forum (for any stock) by typing the following:

FB seems to be the panacea for all the people who need to constantly look outside for validation of their existence and approval for anything and everything they do.  On the other hand, it's pretty good for sharing pics, but who gives a fuck about that??  There are many less intrusive ways to accomplish the same thing.

Truth be told, I'd like to slap the fuck out of Zuckerburg and those Twinkletoss twin motherfuckers for the whole shitty scenario.  Even the name is a pile of shit.  Jesus Christ, couldn't they come up with something better then Facebook??  It sounds like something you do in 2nd grade for chrissakes.

There's a public service announcement running on my local station - probably networks, too - in which two women are talking about the best way to put a baby in bed and avoid SIDS.  Once asks the other how she knows this information.  The reply is, "Facebook, of course."  WTF - you're going to risk your baby's life based on what some clown posts on FB?

And we say sNoory sucks.

Dead on.

Similar to being overly reliant upon Wikipedia, but perhaps even more insidious due to its subtlety.

Hmmm ..., interesting spelling (fysisist). You seem to be "unsettled"?

And sir, the truth about your wish regarding that fucking prick Motherfuckerburg, is shared by many. All I can do is laugh my ass off at all of those stupid bastards that ponied up $38 per share to buy this tweener dog and my-little-pony show. Heard that up to 40% of traffic with these stupid services is pure spam. Talk about clogging an artery - ha! ha! Plus it is shitty meat that will pass for dog food when you run out of Alpo.

For no particular reason other than to see these stupid fucks get rolled over and impaled, I hope the stock sinks to ZERO. I know that will not happen but a $5 per share bottom would be nice as the prick who thinks he is so fucking much smarter than everyone else and thus can fuck anybody however he wishes winds up with trying in vain to get a job busing tables.

omg I officially hate Friday's now....lol

this is the puke-laced drivel i'm supposed to stick around facebook for?  this is how mark zuckerberg thinks he's changed the world?  perhaps he's changed his world, but not the world.  at all.  this company will be on its knees in 5 years.

oh, and by the way... my sister is typical of what you'd expect from the posts you see above.  she hardly has any ability to maintain a substantive conversation.  at all.  it's just infuriating.  facebook validates our illiteracy and further erodes modern social acumen.  facebook represents a bastardization of the word "social."  i find it to be anything but.  as someone else pointed out here on coastgab... you can send someone a well thought, meaningful private message on FB and get ZERO response... but if you post some useless blurb about finding a hair in your sandwich, you're likely to get a response which will also contain "lol" at the end.  fuck it all.

Unlike Google, which had some actual real world applications when it went public, FB is designed especially for insecure, vane, self-absorbed, unmotivated shits who want to sit around and talk about themselves all fucking day.  Masturbation would be a better pastime, at least there you have a goal and generally get a result.  I'm laughing my ass off at all the sorry mofos who spent any money on that worthless POS.  I'm guessing that all the FB losers are spending at least half their day posting about how outraged they over the stock performance, the other half trying to borrow cash from mom so they can pay the rent this month.  On the other hand, all the pricks who owned the stock before it went public are laughing their collective asses off, hip deep in cash, over all the suckers there are in the world.  Caveat Emptor, and all that shit. lol.

Remember what happened to aol, friendster and myspace?  fb is crack for the ego.  half of the people using it are lying aboit thier lives anyway.  Its juat a site that caters to most human beings main obsession:   THEMSELVES.  I originally did like the site a lot in that I was able to contact people that I might not regularly stay in contact with... thats cool but like a few other members here have said facebook is all about look at me and how cool i am type crap.  I think that was WCG who sed that.  its very true. A college of mine at one of my tech jobs brought up another goog point similar to WCGs other observation.  It seems like a lot of people on face book tend to put all thier effort into building themselves up while at the same time feeding on the failures of others to futher lift thier spirits.  My college i spoke of was a struggling actress and she pointed out that a lot of people would post all over her wall and comment til the cows come home when shit wasnt working out.... then when things were going good these people werent around.  im sure not all fbers are like this but there is a very nasty element that seems to permeate the site much more than the positive.  theres also the sexual predator element and the swindlers.  An X of mine met this guy and whatever rance blossomed he moved in had a kid.... turns out this creep wasnt a stockbroker, was already married twice with kids by both his former and current wife, and meanwhile this X Whom I  am still quite close too is living in hell.    FUCK FACEBPOK

my best guess: facebook will begin to feel pressure to become profitable, initiate some sort of fee-to-post nonsense, and users will flee.

Worse yet are the people who apparently play out all their psycho dramas for all the world to see on the Facebook stage.  I'm ashamed to admit we know a couple who split up and spent months doing this. 

Shudder.

on that, i couldn't disagree more.  i think twitter is a great resource.  depending on who you follow, it can be used as a real time stream of information... USEFUL information... coming at you 24/7.  what i do with twitter primarily is subscribe to certain android developers and multiple news outlets.  i'm constantly aware of what's happening because of it. 


facebook never did a single thing for me.  i think your dismissal of twitter, however, is silly.
