Facebook has invaded our lives better than the body snatchers and is here to stay. Some would even consider Mark Zuckerberg a God for this fine creation that has brought the world closer than ever. But there are some aspects of Facebook that are not so amazing. Let me introduce you today to our guest author, Neltje Ann who has come to us with a few of those. Continue Neltje…
Some things just drive me up the wall. Granted, a lot of things drive me up the wall, but that’s beside the point. Let me turn my rantings towards Facebook. It’s an incredible website, often I wonder how in the world I would keep in touch with my friends without it. However, here are the things that I just can’t stand about Facebook.
1. Popularity Contest
It seems like people are just trying to outdo each other with how many friends they’ve got. “I’ve got 600 friends”, “Well, I’ve got 10,000!!!” As a matter of fact, no one really cares how many friends you have. How many friends do you actually talk to?
2. No Recent Photos? You Must Not Have a Life.
I go out plenty but when was the last time I uploaded photos? Probably 4 months ago. My friends are always asking me if I do anything. Just because I don’t post it up on Facebook for all to see doesn’t mean I don’t have a life.
3. Too Old or Too Young
Facebook was created for college students. I am of the opinion that we should keep it that way. It’s weird when your grandma is commenting on a status she shouldn’t be asking about. Young people are joining. My little brother just got Facebook. He’s 12. He shouldn’t be updating about his “fun times in class”.
4. Your Family Members are Stalking You
Sure, Facebook brings people together. But what if the people you are trying to get away from are the ones that are writing on your wall? Too much family love I say.
5. Friend Suggestions
I find these quite annoying. Why would I want to be friends with my second cousin’s sister’s husband’s grandma’s dog? No thanks.
Don’t get me wrong. I love seeing the red notification box when I log in, but when it’s something stupid like someone commenting on a status you like, it’s pretty annoying.
Facebook knows so much about you, it’s almost scary. It knows what you like and what you don’t. Granted, we pretty much put up our whole lives online, but Facebook needs to stop being so knowledgeable about everything.
