Too much Facebook...

Pages: 123
Is it just me or is anyone sick of seeing Facebook everywhere? On adverts, programs and even in conversations. In my opinion, 90% of it is just anyone broadcasting the first thing then comes into there minds which just adds the the pit of social rubish, and the other 10% is people sharing memories, photos and communicating like it was intended for. I am quite pesimitsic though, so I was just curious as to what other pepole think.
I don't see it "everywhere". The only place I see facebook is on facebook. I don't recall ever seeing a Facebook ad.

If your friends talk about facebook in live conversation, they are extremely boring people. I'm pretty boring and even I don't do that.

Does Mark know you're badmouthing his product? Or do you not know him personally? I assumed you did because you seem to know what the product's intended purpose was.
Oh Xander, so easily led. Do you really think Zuckerberg is the creator? He's just the puppet.
He totally created it. Didn't you see that movie about him?

You know... Dustin Hoffman played him.. and Tom Cruise was his brother and took him to casinos where he counted cards and stuff.
The clue's in his name. It's a double-bluff; they think you think he'd never have been called Sucker-Town if it wasn't really him.
Actually, "zucker berg" would be German for "sugar mountain".

Not actually ads for Facebook, but ads that include "find us on Facebook & Twitter".

To be honest... it's been a while since I saw an ad.

With adblocker and watching shows online instead of on TV (why would anyone watch TV any more?) they are really few and far between.

and the moon landing was fake.

conspiracys are fun to make
My brother is kind of a conspiracy nut. One thing about the moon landing he brought up that was interesting was "how did they get footage of them coming out of the shuttle?". I didn't actually have a good answer for him when he brought it up.

I mean I guess they had dropped a camera onto the surface beforehand... and I guess it could even have been electronically rotated to get the aim right... but did they land it on a tripod or what? Did they build in a special camera jettison device into the lunar module for the sole purpose of having a camera poised and ready so they could grab the photo-op of the first steps onto the moon?

The more plausible explanation is that they set the camera up manually, then went back onto the module, and then stepped off it "for the camera". So if that's the case it was fake in that it wasn't really the first steps on the moon, but real in that it was really on the moon.

But whatever. It's a curiosity more than anything else. I don't doubt the lunar landing.

That just makes no sense. Why would they want to call their puppet "sugar mountain"? It's not a literal translation; it has to say "sucker" right there in the open.

Well kinda yea, especially since it's kind of a well known fact that he started it in college (and this was known long before that stupid movie was announced)

He's a smug git. He probably doesn't even care now that he's loaded. Besides, he's only a co-founder along with: Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.

You guys missed the point of that post. Owain was complaining about how adverts everywhere use facebook, and that people aren't using it how he thinks it was meant to be used. I was trying to get at the fact that he can't possibly know with certainty how it was meant to be used. (also who the flying fuck cares how the average user uses it? The vast majority of my facebook statuses are song lyrics and links to images. (mostly pony related, lately))
It's kind of annoying when you go to a website, and a box pops up blocking the relevant content; prompting you to like some corporation on facebook.

Honks should be banned.
Ads too.

Is there anyone else here that hasn't succumb to making a facebook account ?
