Thank you, Lamebook.
Thank you, Lamebook.
Evan: Um, so I don’t like how everything people used to be a “fan of” on Facebook is now just things they “like”
Adam: Yea, I noticed that too.
Evan: And I sort of wonder why I have an opinion on this, but I do.
Evan: That I don’t like everybody liking things.
Adam: I just think it implied a different level of commitment to say that you were a “fan” of something rather than just “liking” it.
Evan: There should be a button for that that goes out to your whole friends list. “Evan does not like all of you liking things, in general.”
Adam: You could make that your status…very easily. I just thought they’d tackle the whole dislike button thing before tinkering with the things that were working for them.
Evan: They’re always tinkering with things that already work. Like the way they redesign the site every 6 months.
Adam: And everyone always cries about it when nothing really changes.
Evan: Except there’s always like one thing that gets dumber.
Adam: Soon you’ll see your friends joining groups called “I LIKED IT BETTER WHEN FACEBOOK ALLOWED ME TO BE A ‘FAN’ OF NOT BEING GANGRAPED BY A GROUP OF HAITIANS!”
Evan: The things I hate about FB are the arbitrary things.
Adam: Such as?
Evan: Like the 5000 friend max.
Adam: There’s a friend max? I mean, I’ll never get up to 5000, so I don’t care.
Evan: Yep. The people who run up against it are public figures who are down to earth enough to actually be friends with their readers/listeners, etc.
Adam: Meh. They can always just create a fan page.
Evan: Like, I keep getting a friend suggestion to add Neil Patrick Harris, b/c I have like 15 mutual friends with him, but he’s at the max, and when you try to add him it says “Sorry, this user already has too many friends.” Judge much, Facebook?
Adam: At least you know that it’s Facebook doing it, because NPH would never do that.
Evan: Oh, of course not. He’s as sweet as he can be.
I know right? Facebook should add “said something completely fucking stupid” to their list of reasons people can be reported and have their account...
