really love the bet-hedging house style Facebook has originated for its "trending" "news items", e.g.
Frank Kaminsky: Video Appears to Show Former Wisconsin Basketball Player Celebrate Team's WinKaminsky appears to jump up from his couch cheering, run into his kitchen and slide onto the floor after former Badgers teammate Bronson Koenig defeated Xavier on Sunday with a buzzer-beater.

is it wrong to feel kinda sorry for these two unfortunates? (especially the one who didn't actually write the "suck my cock" post but just commented on it?)

Woke up, hung over. Piecing together what happened last night, a had a few too many, but I don't think it was that bad. Getting my phone, checking facebook. The first message is from myself, from today, saying 'whooooaaaah-ooooh!!! Lost my phone last night. Goodbye everyone, keep safe!!!' and then I posted California by Phantom Planet. And I'm like, wtf, how drunk was I??? Turns out there's a small text in the corner 'remember this day six years ago?' and it's from my going away party when I moved to San Diego.
Fuck you facebook, for confusing me and reminding me how much of a loser I used to be.

Because people on my and my husband's facebook have at some point 'liked' Habitat and Amazon, we are seeing on our own feeds 'recommendations' of things the other has been browsing. A Habitat photo frame I was looking at as part of his Christmas present came up on his feed and bike locks on Amazon came up on mine.
This is some bullshit. Now we know it does this we'll know what each other has been looking at! Way to ruin relationships Christmas, facebook.I have the FB purity blocker thing but this isn't even categorised as an ad.

Man, trying to create a page and tack on some events used to be easy. Now it's like the hardest thing in the world to do. Thanks Facebook, nobbers.

However, I think what she likes about Facebook is that it is relatively closed off to the outside world, whereas I don't generally care what yahoos have a gander at my drunken photos.
Lol irony reading this now.

"The previously unreported actions by Myanmar’s military on Facebook are among the first examples of an authoritarian government using the social network against its own people."
All of this reads like a more extreme, but familiar, version of what's happening in the U.S.:

It really says something when you go to a site out of habit and then breathe a sigh of relief when it's down.
