Why Facebook SUCKS!!!!

I'd like to say that I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook, but that would be a lie. It's more of a slight crush/seriously hate relationship instead. How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways!

Let us begin with the overly complicated, but seriously limited, settings. In fact, it's the settings that I hate more than anything else. I know privacy Nazis don't like all the privacy issues and I'll agree with that, to a very limited point, but what irks me is control of all the freaking crap I am forced to see.

I don't care how someone is doing on Candy Crush. I hate that game (that man's voice seriously scares me) and I don't EVER want to hear about someone else playing it.

I don't care about all the lol cats that one friend posts 24/7. I'm not even a cat person! Dogs run my life and always will.

I don't care about all the one liner pictures that everyone thinks we all should see. One every now and then is okay, but what about that friend who posts 30 per day?! UGH!

If I like a page, that doesn't mean I LOVE that page and am an obsessed fan. That only means one of two things. The first being that I thought it was cool... today... and only today. The second one being that I support that page (like anti-dog fighting and such). It doesn't mean I want to see every single post they ever make in their lives!

Then take their new notification crap. I only want notifications in response to anything I've said. That's it. I don't want notifications about every post anyone ever makes! Whose bright idea was it to change this. Now I can't keep track of anything and I appear rude for not responding to comments made to me.

I would, however, like to get posts others make as a text message. I accidentally turned a friend of mine off, by accident. Apparently it takes an act of God to get it turned back on. Let's take a look at the help page for that.

Hopefully you can read this well enough. Now take a look at the instructions that I have highlighted. Let's now go to the settings that it's talking of.

To begin with, there is NO mobile section at the top of the page, it's on the left, highlighted in blue. That's a minor issue, but minor or not, it IS incorrect. The second most important problem is that there is absolutely NO "whose status updates should go to my phone section, whatsoever!

Now, I'm no genius or anything, but wouldn't it make sense to you that if you change a freaking feature you'd update the freaking help files?! Facebook employees make a TON of money and for what? For nothing at all? This is simply unacceptable and anyone who neglected this very important thing would have lost their job, were I their employer.

So let's give them some space here. Maybe, just maybe, that little section that says "text me when someone sends me a message on web or mobile" can be customized. Let's give them a chance, okay?

Turned out to be a fat freaking chance, didn't it?

Then there is NO WAY AT ALL TO EASILY FIND A CONTACT US to find out actually HOW to do it! No where! Now if they seriously believe I'll pay for a service such as theirs, they have lost their minds. I'd sue them before I'd pay for it and that's coming from a United States citizen who despises frivolous lawsuits!

All I want to do is fix it to the way it was before. That's it. Is that too much to ask?

Clearly, they need an instructor to teach them how to make settings for anything. They are so out in left field that it's obvious to me that they not only have absolutely ZERO experience in the matter, they don't have a clue as to what they're doing.

Think of it like this. Would you find it acceptable if a doctor treated you in such a way? What if he made the same types of mistakes and told you the special diet you needed to be on but you discovered it wasn't that diet at all, but another one. Would that be something you would just let slide?

Of course it wouldn't! Don't tell me that this is different because it isn't. Negligence is negligence plain and simple. It doesn't matter who it is. If you lie to your customers and give them the wrong instructions, then you are clearly negligent and unintelligent.

Zuckerberg is an idiot who just happened to win a lottery ticket, that's it. His decision making is a joke (Beacon anyone?) and his stupidity flows like Niagara Falls.

This is probably a good time to ask you to post this on Facebook. It's time that they hear the truth about themselves.

God bless you all!
