There are so many reasons I don’t like Facebook. I know, “why do you have so many of them then?” Fair question. I very seldom use my original FB account with that Dick name on it. That one was made to keep in touch with family and friends, and I still use it for that. But as I said, I don’t use it much any more.
Dharma hadn’t been used in a long time, it was created for LOST fans to post stuff about the show when it went off the air. It was neat to see fans of the show from all over the world come to the FB account and share things. But eventually, it died down and I stopped going to it. That was till I decided to use it to check on all the FB accounts I had accumulated while looking into those I blogged about. There was no way I was gonna use my real FB where friends and family might be messed with (in the end many found this FB anyways, hence the middle finger profile pic) and I thought The Stranger was not the right one to use in contacting people who didn’t know me (well except The Drifter, I used my Stranger account to contact him , thinking he would like The Stranger, I was right.) So as I ramble off as usual, all I’m trying to say, is the Dharma account came in handy (for a moment) but now once again, I don’t use it to often. No need to at the moment.
I do use my Stranger FB a lot. Mostly to keep in touch with other horror and haunt actors and fans. Also to promote The Dome of course.
So yes, there is stuff Facebook is good for, and yet I hate the fuck out of it, lol. I guess that’s the way most things in life are.
One of the things I have hated over the years on Facebook is the private stuff people throw out there. Everyone on the internet does not need to know every time you take a shit. And if all you ever do is complain about your life, well that get’s to be tiresome reading. We don’t need to hear about how so and so isn’t your BFF any more or how your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife is evil and all the things they did to you this week to cause you to change your relationship status. This is one of the worst. And having a few accounts I have seen the break-ups of friends, family, and complete strangers (ha ha, STRANGERS). And many of them end up right back together when the fight has blown over. Some change the status back and delete their rants expecting you to forget about how messed up their mate is until the next time.
There are many reasons why I find this wrong, but to hammer it in I will say, on more than 3 occasions, I have seen two people I know and care about who use to love and care about each other, tare the other apart on FB and expect their Facebook “Friends” to do what? Choose between friends or in some cases family?!? And in front of the whole FB world?!?
Yea, all that negative personal stuff and life griping seems pointless and just adds to the drama that you probably have too much of to begin with. Add that to the hate speech often disguised as FB opinion pages and sometimes you just want to yell out “FUCK FACEBOOK!” And a lot of us do.
But, who am I to complain… it’s your FB. So do with it what you want. But we all know we need more than “LIKE” to click on. We need:
So you can show how you truly feel about what someone posts on their timeline.
(pay attention, because here’s the part where I explain why I really don’t like FB or other social medias)
That’s sort of what I did with Zero’s World Facebook. I put up my middle finger to some pages and those who came to ZW’s FB to bitch about it. And that should be all good. You can post things, others can post things about what you posted, if you don’t like it, delete what they wrote or just block or ban them and move on.
But nooooo… Facebook, like other social medias are full of crybabies who can dish it out… well you get it.
The whole thing is ass backwards if you ask me, and you know I don’t care if you ask me or not. I mean if someone calls you a serial killer, or says you were molested as a child, or that you make child porn. Yes these types of remarks should be reported. If some one posts your family’s names on social media sites with malice intentions, Facebook should do something about it. But as we have seen for ourselves first hand… those types of things don’t always follow under Facebook guidelines, and even though someone may be responsible for numerous complaints where they actually should probably be removed or at least not allowed to post comments on pages… well I think most of you know exactly what I’m talking about.
Facebook, like other social medias (Twitter is even worse with how their complaint system works), policies just don’t work as they are intended. For example I give you exhibit A:
I was greeted with this when I went to my Facebook the other day. And when I clicked on continue I saw this (exhibit B):
Seriously?!? Because I wrote “The poor “white” people”, I need to review my page’s content? LMFAO! Social media somehow always misses real complaints and caters to the haters for some reason. Let me further explain my “The poor “white” people” comment. It was posted under a picture someone had posted on their page. Here’s the picture (exhibit C):
When I saw it I just had to share it (isn’t that what Facebook is all about?) And I wrote the “The poor “white People” comment under the shared picture on Zero’s World’s FB page. As you can see, the pic was posted by someone called Richard Cranium. And I’m guessing they didn’t like the comment I wrote under it. Or maybe they didn’t like that I shared it. I’m still not sure what it is I got chastised for? For sharing the picture or for the comment I wrote under it? Seems all Richard Cranium had to do if they didn’t like me sharing it or my comment I wrote on my page, where I shared it, was block me or contact me and ask me to take it down… isn’t that how they suggest things to be removed?
No it’s reported, taken down, and now I should review my page’s content. Yea, fuck that. Damn, Richard Cranium you aren’t the Dick Head you think you are, you really should change your name to Sob Infant. OK, sorry, I really reached for that one. still if he didn’t like me sharing his pic on FB, I doubt he’ll like that I shared it here. And I doubt he’s gonna like the next part either:
If you go to RC’s FB, you’ll see just where he stands… to the right. Good for him (I’m only assuming they are male due to the name and obsession with guns, lol, that’s a joke you gun toters out there). I really don’t care if you stand to the left or the right, just stop thinking that’s the place everyone should be standing, because thankfully it’s not.
Anyways, gun rights activist, immigration reform protesting, Obama hating, destroyer or Islam, Richard Cranium posts things like this:
Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog.
During our friendly conversation, I asked their 12 year old daughter what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day.
Both of her parents – liberal Democrats – were standin…g there, so I asked her, “If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?”
She replied, “I’d give food and houses to all the homeless people.”
Her parents beamed with pride!
“Wow…what a worthy goal!” I said. “But you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that!” I told her.
“What do you mean?” she replied.
So I told her, “You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I’ll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house.”
She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, “Why doesn’t the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?”
I said, “Welcome to the Republican Party.”
Her parents aren’t speaking to me….LMBO!!!
How cute… I love the B in LMBO, Butt not Ass, keep the acronyms clean! What else can we find on RC’s FB?
Did you know that Planned Parenthood commits hundreds of thousands of abortions – destroys hundreds of thousands of human beings – every year? Did you know that your tax money funds this abortion giant – whether you like it or not? Well,… we have good news. Live Action is launching a national campaign to show the American people what this corrupt organization is doing with their money…and to give our leaders the knowledge they need to do their jobs, and protect us from being forced to fund a huge child-killing corporation.Please visit PlannedParenthoodExposed.com and see just how deep this evil runs. See what your tax money is funding. And sign the petition to put a stop to abortion conscription.
Yea, I doubt Mr. Cranium will like this post too much. Will I be getting an email from WordPress asking me to review my blogs content? Probably.
I don’t know why so many have a problem with what I have to say. Even though I don’t agree with most of the shit people put out there, I strongly believe in freedom of speech and know that everyone has a right to say what they want.
But it then must also hold true that people have a right to say what they want about the things you say. I’ve said this before, right?
So stop being fucking cry babies, you fucking cry babies!
