What Is It With Facebook (Continued)
After my first hub on face book, I have found some more things that bug me even more with face book such as Causes, Groups, Games, Notifications etc to name a few.
So here we go.
Loading up face book can be hysterical cant it, especially when you forget your password and end up having top have it sent to your email address to remind you what it was. But when you load up your email address you have another password to remember, and after you get through that one you find that you have a an old email from when you first signed into facebook with your password... It happens to me all the time.
Any how you load up facebook and you the suddenly notice in the top left of the screen you have red boxes with numbers - over your notifications, messages and friend requests buttons okay.
Lets begin with notifications......
The person who invented this is evil, because when you click it it bring up a list... Now this can be confusing because it may say a friend likes your link, or a friend commented on your status but the thing is finding which status that they commented on or link can be extremely difficult when your constantly writing new ones.
Thats just the beginning you also get cause requests which can be absolute bad head because you get people send you a request to join their cause, now don't be fooled they did not pick you specifically, there is a button that states to invite friends and you have to add at least 25 friends or something like that to be part of the cause....
You also get a notification that says a friend has added you to the group .......... so you load it up feeling like your something really special to find out that its a dating group or something on those lines and to add insult to injury you notice that your profile picture is not exactly the best one to have when your joining a group like this, so what do you do? you change your profile picture dont you? I mean for goodness sake you would normally have refused to join something like that but now rather than do that you have to make yourself look lovely, and then when people start adding you as friends from the group who you dont know, you stay friends... And then when you write a status half of these unknown friends end up liking the status and your new profile picture leaving saucy messages......... Why do you do it?
But looking at all these notifications we never un join anything do we, we stupidly stay as part of the group like it gives us some kind of status on face book and makes people think that were super duper, sad!!!!!
What about games on face book, lets recap a few Frontierville, Farmville, Cityville, Gardens Of Time.. There are more but these are the ones that do my head in, because when you load up your profile page on face book you can be met with... Friend has sent a request to you in Farmville, Friend has sent you a secret gift in Frontierville. Now I know one or two you dont mind, but when you have twenty to thirty of them on your page and a list of notifications its quite a pain in the backside isn't it.
Honestly I know I sound stupid but face book can be an absolute pain sometimes...............
It makes us all out to be two faced, then controls you into being a facebook addict yet we dont complain because we actually love it.... How Bizarre?
