…WHAT?!?

27 Sep

What I will never understand, is why Facebook 1) is constantly changing and 2) is constantly being bombarded by those stupid forwards and “Copy and paste this status unless you want your account deleted” statuses.

Firstly, when there is a version of Facebook that people actually get used to and like, WHY change it and make it more complicated? Also, I might add that now it is much easier to stalk someone, because every single little thing that your friends do is sent to that little timeline at the top of your friend list.  Creepy much? Anywho, I know I’m not the only one trying to navigate the new Facebook and failing miserably -_-

Know what? Every single time I have ignored one of those forwards or status things, my account has not been deleted. Snopes.com is a great way to verify whether stuff like that is true or not. But honestly, Facebook knows whether or not you are an active user.

“FACEBOOK JUST RELEASED THEIR PRICE GRID FOR MEMBERSHIP. $9.99 PER MONTH FOR GOLD MEMBER SERVICES, $6.99 PER MONTH FOR SILVER MEMBER SERVICES, $3.99 PER MONTH FOR BRONZE MEMBER SERVICES, FREE IF YOU COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. WHEN YOU SIGN ON TOMORROW MORNING YOU WILL BE PROMPTED FOR PAYMENT INFO…IT IS OFFICIAL IT WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS. FACEBOOK WILL START CHARGING DUE TO THE NEW PROFILE CHANGES. IF YOU COPY THIS ON YOUR WALL YOUR ICON WILL TURN BLUE AND FACEBOOK WILL BE FREE FOR YOU. PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON IF NOT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED IF YOU DO NOT PAY —“

Yeah. I’m sure. That isn’t even believable! Why should posting something as your status or inboxing it to everyone you know save you from having your account deleted? Not to mention  that Facebook has had this nice little message on it for forever. Facebook isn’t going to start charging or they would no longer have a decent reputation, or any users for that matter.

On the topic of believable status things, here is one that I find the most believable.

“Tomorrow, Facebook will change its privacy settings to allow Mark Zuckerberg to come into your house while you sleep and eat your brains with a grapefruit spoon. To stop this from happening, go to Account> Home Invasion Settings> Cannibalism> Brains, and uncheck the “Tasty” box. Please copy and re-post to save lives.”

That one seriously made me laugh, I mean, honestly, to me at least, it is just as believable as the other ones that are going around. So what did I do? I posted it. What else?

Just some thoughts, dedicated Facebook users 🙂

    Lol, you really cracked me up with one Paperclip! It does seem pretty ridiculous that Facebook has so much garbage that get’s posted, and it sure is aggravating that Facebook is constantly changing it’s layout.

    I like your blog, it’s super cool!
