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.

In January 2013, one of Mr. Zuckerberg’s lieutenants emailed him with news about Twitter, one of Facebook’s biggest competitors. The company had introduced a video-sharing service called Vine, which allowed users to create and post six-second video clips.

When new users signed up for Vine, they were given the option of following their Facebook friends — a feature enabled through Facebook’s application program interface, or API. This feature was widely used, and had become a valuable tool for new apps to accelerate user growth. But in Vine’s case, Facebook played hardball.

“Unless anyone raises objections, we will shut down their friends API access today,” wrote the lieutenant, Justin Osofsky, now a Facebook vice president.

Mr. Zuckerberg, the chief executive, replied: “Yup, go for it.”

hmm u don't say

These emails reveal that in the formative years of Facebook’s growth, the company’s executives were ruthless and unsparing in their ambition to collect more data from users, extract concessions from developers and stamp out possible competitors.
