Just spent an hour untagging myself in other people's photos due to the new and "improved" (i.e. - marketer friendly) graph search.

That was fun. :crazy:

Oh, and in case you don't know what I'm talking about, Facebook Graph search is a handy new tool that let's stalkers and marketers do their thing easier....... basically, you can now do this on facebook:

I must have some good friends. Almost all of them are like me and only seem to check their Facebook once every three weeks or so. For those I see who update it constantly, I tend to just respond to their stuff with smarmy, backhanded and sarcastic comments. Good times.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/ryanmac/2013/07/25/mark-zuckerbergs-net-worth-up-3-3-billion-as-facebook-shares-soar-following-earnings/

On Thursday, Facebook’s shares closed at a one-year high of $34.36, following a strong earnings report in which the Menlo Park, Calif.-based firm handily beat analysts’ estimates. Shares were up about 29.6%, sending the Facebook chief’s net worth up nearly $3.7 billion in one day. FORBES estimates that as of Thursday, Zuckerberg is worth approximately $16.1 billion. In March, he was worth $13.3 billion on the World’s Billionaire List.

After you add "s" to billions, it does not matter anymore, does it? :thumbdown:

I'm not usually big on politics, but I "liked" a page last week that is really awesome for someone with my views, BUT it keeps getting me all riled up. Because the overwhelming majority of the people on my friends list are from Alabama, a very RED state, I feel compelled to keep sharing these posts so that Fox news isn't the only source they receive information from. Of course it's pissing people off, but at least they're seeing it. I definitely feel much more equipped to handle a discussion with people like my family who are very much on the other end of the political spectrum, but I'm thinking I have to unlike this page for my own sanity. I should probably unlike FB for the same reason, lol.
I've been doing this a long time and have seen lots of changes most of which I can't fucking stand...but I still go anyway because I'm there for the MUSIC and so I tolerate all that other bullshit because I DO get the point. So there :-)

I find I avoid any posted political article of ANY type that I see on Facebook. I don’t go there for that stuff.

I've decided that "Now I've seen everything" is going to be my go-to post for any picture that anyone posts on Facebook. The more mundane the better it works. "A sandwich?! Now I've seen everything". "Is that a baby?! Now I've seen everything". It works on so many levels.

I think this probably means I'm being a dick and should get rid of my FB account again.

That’s a pretty solid comment…it’s backhanded but not obviously so. I may have to steal that.

My favorite for these is whenever folks post pictures of their baby, 50% of the time, their kid is chewing on something. My go-to comment is always “Geez, that [whatever baby is chewing on] looks delicious!” I'm a big fan of babies chewing on random objects.

I think this probably means I'm being a dick and should get rid of my FB account again.

It’s probably why I only check Facebook maybe once a month or so. If I say something rude, I disappear for long enough that the person forgets about it.

I found this an enjoyable read, even its all encompassing bitterness...or maybe because of. Without being on FB, I know enough to know all of these characteristics. It's like a well thought out sociology paper.

^Wow, GREAT read. I think when I read Facebook in the future, I’ll be trying to figure out which category that post fits into.

Fuck Facebook. First they locked my account with a captcha that went to a dead link and made me create a second account just to send them a message about my normal account having issues. Then they throw a captcha at me a few weeks later for no reason but at least that worked right.

Now, they've just "disabled" my Facebook account entirely and I have no idea why. I haven't made a new post there since like November and just use the account to comment on friends' Facebook pages from time to time. No reason for the disabling given.

So, of course, I'm going through their dispute section and the form itself requires me attach an ID to "verify" the account...it wouldn't even let me submit it if something wasn't attached. So I attached some random image and sent the dispute. I plain refuse to give Facebook my ID since I don't trust them with any of my info and it's pointless to do so anyway since, aside from my first name, my Facebook has no information about me and even the birthday is purposely incorrect. So they claim to need it to "verify" my account but there's nothing to verify.

So I explain this in multiple e-mails and they just respond back with form letters or plain ignored the e-mails and it's still disabled (with them still not telling me why). So finally I broke down and just googled a license with my same name and I've attached that.

I'm curious to see if it'll work but it's just ridiculous. This entire thing seems like it's part of this push to get IDs and phone numbers and stuff from everyone on their site (I think all the new accounts require it now) and it feels like they're doing this just to get my information from accounts that were made before they started requiring it. I can't think of why else they'd do it outside of that. Fuck Facebook. I barely even use it as it is and only have it to see what my friends who never answer their phones are up to.

I use Facebook all the time, but I should really f'n boycott it, just on the grounds of it being a primary vehicle for fake news, propoganda. It's proven to be bad for you at this point, ain't it? Facebook I mean; of course bullshit is bad for you.
