Fuck you Facebook
I am absolutely sick and tired of sites that have connections to Facebook all the time or that love to use Facebook-style interfaces and such to the point where the interface is actually WORSE. Or stuff that requires you to use it to get specials and deals and coupons, or even just to leave a fucking COMMENT.
Ustream had a thing where they tried REALLY hard to implement Facebook into their video chats and even ended up reversing the chat so the posts scrolled down from the top and not the bottom and pissed their userbase off so bad they changed it back after a few weeks, but even then they still haven't gotten rid of the social networking functionality.
And it doesn't stop there. Blizzard once tried to make their forums display your real name with the Real ID system. There was a mass shitstorm there. And don't get me started on the newest version of Windows Live Messenger. All this stuff is getting corrupted by this stupid social networking craze.
And with stuff like Youtube getting likes and dislikes instead of the star system now and tons of stupid comments like '100 people missed the like button' or something all over the place, and sites that are all 'Sign in with your Facebook'. I always opt to use the on-site sign in...until today, when I tried to comment on an AOL post where I normally used to use my AIM, but I typed the comment and it went 'SIGN IN TO FACEBOOK'. NO. FUCK YOU. When shit requires me to use a service I don't want then it can fuck off entirely.
I don't want a Facebook. I don't want to slap my personal info and images on a wall for everyone to see where someone might eventually use something against me, like potential employers for one. I am not interested in social networking, I have plenty of other mediums to find and stay in touch with friends, namely, e-mail, IM, and the telephone. I have no interest in becoming a part of this 'system' any time soon. I've reached my final straw. I'm normally a mellow person, but I just had to get this out there. Have a nice day.
