Facebook Observations

Here are a few screenshots from my time spent in Facebook’s iPhone app.

If you use Facebook you’ll be used to your feed being populated with a load of shitty messages from Facebook apps. The worst culprit is FarmVille, but I blocked that long ago ((At first, I didn’t realise that you could stop particular apps from appearing in your feed. Unfortuantely you can’t do it from inside the iPhone app.)). This image depicts the worst torrent of App Spamâ„¢ that I’ve ever experienced:

Some people try too hard on Facebook. I facepalmed at this:

Some people like to copy messages around. It’s like chain mail, and the chain emails that follow it. It might seem to be a good thing superficially, but what the hell does it achieve?

I don’t even know if this is factually correct. Are you sure autism isn’t a disease? And why wouldn’t autistic people want to be cured? The whole thing just stinks to me.

The worst bit comes at the end: “93% won’t Copy and Paste this… will YOU”. Fuck off. And how can you respect anything that has such awful grammar?

Sometimes they even do crazy Jesus pictures:

I’ve noticed that people can be somewhat generous and homogenous in their ratings, completely missing the point of sharing such data.

Facebook is quite a reliable app on my iPod, but in its hours of use I have come across a few anomalies. If you’re wondering what’s wrong with the first; surely there should never be a situation when there are no posts, at least not for an established account like mine.

Even so, I’m not complaining. I like Facebook, it’s a good way to keep in touch with people.
