    The problem there is they're not really democratic expression. Liking or sharing something is so passive an act there's very little reason to actually involve yourself in it. It's not so much having your say as it is avoiding actually having to say anything.

    Nothing beats the irony of people moaning about companies avoiding paying tax on Facebook.

    Twitter is better for reaching people/companies directly, especially when complaining. Customer service is slowly improving through the use, none of this 5 working days nonsense. Have a decent enough gripe and it'll reach thousands pretty quickly, meaning they have to act.

    And 'like' and 'share' are prized concepts for advertising etc. Is all bollocks.

    Don't get me wrong I know 99% of the likes are just people jumping on a passing bandwagon. But it gets the attention of these companies and politicians better than any other avenue. I don't think there has ever been a better forum for the plebs to voice their concerns.

    My current favourite Farcebook moron bait would be these images that ask "Can you name a band whose name doesn't include the letter 'T'? IT'S HARDER THAN YOU THINK!", followed by thousands of people trying to prove how VERY CLEVER they are (thus gaining the image/company tons of exposure). Special points go to the people who like to list 'obscure' bands, as if it somehow gives them 'cred'.

    I liked the one where it was "Can you name a film that doesn't include the letter S?"

    Yes. There's six of them nominated for Best Picture Oscar, for one thing. It's one of those things you* glance at, think about for maybe two seconds, realise it's shite and move on.

    sorry i've come to this thread late so this peeve of mine may have already been mentioned.

    does anyone else find elaborate expressions of grief about the death of people they don't know (mostly celebrities i suppose) irritating?

    it's like a competition to see who's the most sympathetic/empathic human on the internet. maybe i grates me so now because, to my shame, i've done it myself. i blame Diana.


    i've tried to enjoy Facebook but the constant stream of mundane bullshit my 'friends' deem fit to divulge wore me down. i find it ironic that it's more stimulating to me to read comments on forums such as this written by people i'll never meet.

    So some idiot has set up a new facebook account but used one of my old email addresses.

    I've changed his password and posted on his wall to say let him know and get in touch or I'll delete the account.

    How fucking stupid *ARE* people

    Huh, someone else with the same name as me has signed up to Facebook using my gmail address. Don't even know how it's possible but now I have control of his account (until he logs back in I guess).

    Now do I be nice Tom or bad Tom?

    edit: HA! I just saw Ginger's post!

    I don't know "why" I put "thing" in "inverted" commas, btw.

    And not even a hint of gay porn. You are a far better man than I.

    Truthfully, he would have still come out to the world within 10 seconds, baby or not.

    My Facebook pet hate is people who update their status with something like: "Just had some terrible news..."

    Then when people understandably ask what's wrong, they say they can't elaborate because its on Facebook.

    Attention-seeking cunts the lot of them.

    I'm sooo close to dropping it. The amount of bollocks that now pops up on my news wall is staggering. I don't give a shit what my mate is posting on someone else's wall, especially when I have no fucking clue who that other person is.
    It's the same with pics, when one of my 'friends' decides to comment on some big titted, Ronseal covered, slag's trout pout, I don't wanna see her big ole mutt head cramming up my news feed too.
    I doubt I'll put up with it much longer.

    He just got tested, and has the Vaguebooking virus. The only way to stop it is ignoring the utter heck out of him.

    I have heard of a few people dropping off of Facebook recently so hopefully itís losing its ubiquity. This can only be a good thing as it was starting to become a problem in my being a normal person disguise that I don't have a face book page.

    Just block updates of people who share that crap. I've a zero tolerance policy on that shit, plus all the 'how to sort this country out, only one percent of brave people will like this' thinly veiled racism shit. I deleted someone the other day for constantly posting jokes in his status.

    Facebook is how you sculpt it.

    Yup, rocket science it is not.

    "My mobile phone is rubbish, all I get are cold calls!"

    "The postal service is shit, all I get is junk mail!"
