It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Welcome to the Death Star (aka Facebook). They've now implemented new features because they want to think for you. They want to control what you see, and what everyone sees. Which is everything!
There is a ticker in place, that shows every single thing you do (except pokes, and emails...but that I am sure is on deck).
So every ticker update shows what you like, what you post, what you comment everywhere. Great!
Oh oh oh, and they've removed the automatic input of this brilliant blog (rss) post because they think it is better for me to manually do it. It will then create an emotional attachment between me and my Facebook friends. Happy joy!
Needless to say many people have left Facebook because of this. Do they care? No! At 750 million people what is a few million people leaving in a few days? Nothing...since kids are being born every day. They will be fine, just fine.
Facebook vs Google Plus. Just remember, Google does things for good, and Facebook does things for themselves. So their mantra says.
So back to the Ticker. Are you kidding me? It's embarrassing. I get to see people doing everything, which validates they are idiots, when before I just assumed it. And and and...people see what I'm doing. Screw that noise. How can I deal on 20 chicks, when they all see what I'm saying? Facebook is hating the player, and I hate the game!
It is forcing me to be just an observer, because I don't want people to know what I like, what I say, and what I do.. And you know full well these stormtroopers are recording all your clicks. What? Your wife who is divorcing you is going to get a subpoena of your facebook activity. You what? You clicked LIKE on a Victoria Secrets photo album? Now she's going to use this against you, that you are an online pervert, and you'll lose parenting rights? Wonderful!
If you had a clue, you'd limit your Facebook activity if anything just to tell them they SUCK. Many of you will say you have nothing to hide; which is probably the case...yet it is data that can be manipulated and used against you. Interpretation ring a bell? I often find the people who don't care about rights being infringed upon, are more concerned about Dancing with the Stars.
