Facebook (+1 informative)



  • I've just noticed, that facebook became extremely informative... When checking my profile, I've read:

    "You are online now."

    Gee... thanks - that was useful :D



  • I would be far more worried to see "You are offline"



  • Funny, I thought this was the exact same thing than facebox. Facebox is another (purposeless) social networking website, with a touch of annoying viral marketing. It's so shameful they just changed their name to netlog ( while facebox was probably an attempt to steal facebook's audience, I guess ? ). As [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facebox]the wikipedia artcile[/url] claims, this rebranding tries to evade all the bad press that "facebox" has when looking up on google ...

    By reading the wikipedia article I felt all the shame on me : yup, [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorenz_Bogaert]founder is Belgian[/url].

    By the way, I deserve a (-1 off topic ). It's Monday morning after all ;-D 



  • Facebook itself is a massive, distributed WTF... I have a rant about it in facebook, but I'm not sure whether any of you would be allowed to view it, or whether I could even MAKE it available to you, for my own safety.

    For instance, the Wall, THE WALL, the #1 chitchat feature of facebook, simply is not on any menu or even HINTED at on any menu. I hope my MOM can figure out that to communicate with people, she needs to go to Profile and then scroll way down. Not to mention that they refuse to use any font size larger than 10 pt, for anything, no matter how important, so mom probably won't even find the menu.

    Want to send a message to someone? Maybe you could use the link to someone's wall, or you could use "Wall-to-Wall" which... is ALSO for writing on someone else's wall...

    There is a private message system, so you can COMPOSE a message, but only by first going to INBOX... Why would I be going to INBOX to create OUTGOING mail?

    See, I hadn't noticed most of this stuff before. It's all gonna bug me now, but I guess it's nice to know why I get a vague sense of unease from Facebook's interface.

    You would prefer, perhaps, Myspace?

    Depends. If it's smart enough to notice that I disconnected, that would be far more correct than displaying "You are online".
