God damn fucking Facebook

   18 December 2007, early morning

My friend Linh’s birthday was this Saturday. I made it out to XO Karaoke Bar to celebrate around midnight. The snowstorm was just getting underway, but I didn’t want to miss the party. Linh took lots of pictures, which I’ll never get to see because they are probably on Facebook. God damn fucking Facebook. I think of all the stupid things on the Internet that I’ve signed up for — twitter, flickr, etc — Facebook has the greatest penetration amongst everyone I know. It’s pretty much the only service I can think of that would actually be useful because everyone I know uses it. It kind of sucks I hate it so much. Fuck you Facebook.

  1. lol why dont you just get an account? you can leave it entirely blank or just fill it with lies! you can claim it as a sort of subterfuge!

  2. I feel like I may have to at some point. There is this whole world I’m not privy to. It’s very frustrating.

  3. ram, if you’re looking to communicate with a friend through non-facebook means, i’ll always be here for you.

    i loathe it.

  4. I’m not sure I’ve seen this much anger from before.

    If you really want to see those pictures, have your friend add me as a friend and you can use my account.

  5. You can send links to pictures in Facebook to recipients without Facebook accounts. I do it with Flora all the time. She is anti-Facebook.

  6. Nice. I guess I can continue to avoid Facebook forever.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
