Sorry, I Blacked Out on Facebook

You know when you’re on Facebook, just randomly clicking at pictures, and you find yourself looking at stranger’s pictures?

And then you click a new tab away from the Facebook tab, and then like, 10 minutes later you come back to the Facebook tab, and you’re like, who the FUCK is Giuliia DeGeneres, and WHY am I looking at her pictures?

Facebook Thumbs Up: Your Mom Likes This

So my sister just alerted me to the fact that my mom just created a Twitter account.  That’s right, the same mom who has (thankfully) shunned facebook, is now going to be tweeting away to her Baby Boomer possee.  Upon hearing this news, I called my mom to tell her she’s not allowed to follow me on Twitter (damn Twitter Gamail friend finder…).

For those of you not lucky enough to have facebook shunning parents, there’s help for you yet.  Oh Crap. My Parents Joined Facebook is my new favorite website concept.  Basically, it’s just a collection of real parental unit facebook status updates.  And Mom, if you’re reading this, if you join facebook, please don’t friend me…

I Don’t Like This

If I were Mark Zuckerberg, Emporer of Facebook, Id terminate the Friend Suggestion feature ASAP

If I were Mark Zuckerberg, Emporer of Facebook, I'd terminate the Friend Suggestion feature ASAP

You know how facebook has that totally useless side bar where they “recommend” people for you to add as a friend?  Usually it’s someone you went to school with, or someone who happens to be facebook friends with a lot of your facebook friends; someone you’ve probably met, but for whatever reason your relationship never progressed to facebook.

Imagine my surprise when the opposite happened.  Today, facebook recommended someone who I was casually seeing for a bit, here in SF,  but we never progressed to facebook friends on account of the fact that I was kind of bored with him, and then he rudely dumped via text message. Like, uh, thanks facebook, for recommending we be facebook friends, but I don’t even want to be real life friends with this person, thank you very much, let alone add him as a virtual one.

But then, curiousity got the best of me (of course) and I decided to look at Senior Text Dropper’s (TM) profile.  Stupidly, his profile is public, meaning anyone can see his profile — including the fact that as of a few days ago he “went from being single to in a relationship.”  Gag me, facebook.  But also? Close call, me.  And, while I’m glad to have avoided ending up in that boring relationship, I’m not particularly glad facebook decided to make me aware of my good fortune.  If you’re not in my phone anymore, I don’t want you in my life — facebook or otherwise.  So, I give facebook’s friend recommender a facebook thumbs down: do not like.
