Another Facebook Rant

I know, EVERYONE complains about Facebook and it does no good. I realize this. I just want to complain, because I am getting old and cranky. Soon I will be growing my mustache to look like Wilford Brimley. I should put him on my death watch list. I am digressing. On to the rant.

The other day, I woke up and pulled up Facebook on my iPhone. I couldn’t sort by most recent updates. They hid it. By default, you can only see what Facebook thinks is important to you. Or what will give them the most advertising dollars. The thing that really irritates me, is that they didn’t tell anyone. At least not that I was aware of. I strengthen this statement by the sheer number of people that couldn’t find it either. Not only do you have to go to a hidden area to get the most recent stories, but you have to do it every time. It is like looking at comments.

If I don’t like Facebook I should leave. The problem is that you can’t leave. It is like Microsoft Office. You have to use it because everyone else uses it. I prefer Word Perfect over Word. No one else in the world does however. Oh well. That is the problem with Facebook. If you don’t use it, you won’t get invited to parties, you won’t find out about people dying, you won’t find out about people having babies, you won’t see amusing images from George Takei … basically you will be unattached from the world as a whole. Maybe that’s a good thing.

Well, no reason to tie you up any longer on a Sunday to to listen to my Facebook hate. Just needed to get it out there. LONG LIVE MYFROOGLE PLUS CHAT HALL CIRCLES! Or something.

 

On a side note I want to wish my MIL a happy birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
