I think Facebook has been misused all over the world. Everyone's using it for different purposes.
Creating false identities, stalking others, people creating TWO or more accounts of themself, people adding up to thousands of people who they don't even know are just some of the problems in Facebook.
Moreover, a lot of people are using Facebook to be 'social' in a little bit more different way.
Before, I used to write on people's wall, looking at other people's profile (which I still do :D) and etc but now, it seems that the only thing I do in Facebook are wishing people happy birthday and play Mafia Wars. Yep, that's all I think.
My friend Gary gets very excited whenever someone posts a new profile picture.
There's this Q&A application which they'll ask you some questions which may be related to your friend, and you are to answer those questions.
Some answers are pretty weird and most of the time very sarcastic. No one ever took the questions seriously.
Can be very funny at times, but the more I see, the lamer it gets.
I'm not happy with some applications though.
You get one of your photos picked randomly but it never made any sense as to how it can be the 'Photo of the Day'. Sigh.....
The annoying trend nowadays are people becoming a "fan" of.... ummm.. something.. they like but yet isn't exactly a... REAL thing or an individual or idol worth becoming a fan of.
Well, from this picture above, you get the idea.
It seems pretty cool before, but now, it's just plain annoying. No offense hehe.
Why not become a fan of some local singer/restaurant/eatery/cafe? I think we need more people supporting our local firms. Though I'm not a fan of any.
You'll always find out if there's any offer or promotion coming on from the page, so that's good.
And we thought chain mails are only spreaded through our e-mail inboxes but no, it's in Facebook as well!
One particular example is:
"Attention all Facebook membeRs.
Facebook is recently becoming very overpopulated, There have been many members complaining that Facebook is becoming very slow. Record shows that the reason is that there are too many non-active Facebook members And on the other side too many new Facebook members.
We will be sending this messages around to see if the Members are active or not, If you're active please send to other users using Copy+Paste to show that you are active Those who do not send this message within 2 weeks, The user will be deleted without hesitation to create more space,
If Facebook is still overpopulated we kindly ask for donations but until then send this message to all your friends and make sure you send this message to show me that your active and not deleted.
Founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg"
That is such an old trick. Try something new pleaseeeeeee....!
Another thing I particularly hate about social networking sites is people creating profiles of celebrities in which the creator claims to be the celebrity him/herself!
Shouldn't it be Lady GaGa instead of GaGa Lady??
Maybe it's alright if you admit on the page that you created the profile as a tribute. But claiming yourself to be the real Lady GaGa is simply too much. Just like the chain mail has claimed, it has caused Facebook to be too 'overpopulated' and become too 'slow'.
So everyday, the creator of the profile would simply log on to Facebook, check out all the lovely comments left by the "fans", feel his/her balls growing 5 times in size and ultimately scratch it.
It's too bad some of the celebrities can't add me :'( I want to be friends too :'( But me cannot becomes :'(
Me heart is breakkks =(
Look at the comments and see how many "fans" were upset about this matter.
Why bother anyway? What's the purpose of doing that I wonder? I'm pretty sure the creators really have too much time, got nothing else to do and are simply those kind of people who decides to be a jackass and really fancy the feeling of having fans and supporters worldwide.
Heck, if getting the attention, praise and love comments from "fans" is what you like, pleaseeeeeeeeeee.. Try something else.
Maybe post a video of yourself singing and dancing up on YouTube 'cause no matter how horrible or terrible the way you sing and dance, you'll still get fans and be loved by people all around.
William Hung may not be the best singer around, but he earned himself a record deal!
So use your brainnnn, or somebody's gonna get hurt real baddddd..
