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 ago1. This image depicts the worst torrent of App Spam™ 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.

  1. 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. []
