"You have two memories..."

but before that, here's a crappy video of pictures you've posted floating around that we put together because it is Friends' Day

and here's a 3 word post from 9 years ago (that one's probably on me)

and here's a crappy video of pictures you've posted that we've cobbled together for no other reason than it used to be January and now it isn't. Your January Highlights.

and here's a memory from two years ago yesterday that you might have missed (but didn't)

meanwhile those group posts you made to that group with 26 people in it, we're only going to show that to two of them, despite the fact that they all subscribed specifically.

eight months pass...

anyone got tips for getting rid of the phantom notifications? my total keeps creeping upwards, now it's at seven, none of which are real.

Book Doula (sleeve), Tuesday, 5 November 2019 18:41 (four months ago) link

can you describe these in more detail?

sarahell, Tuesday, 5 November 2019 18:44 (four months ago) link

you know, the little red dot with the number in it. When I'm logged out, it (incorrectly) says seven, when I log in there are zero. Totally nitpicky but it drives me crazy.

Book Doula (sleeve), Tuesday, 5 November 2019 18:53 (four months ago) link

do you use fb on both a phone and computer?

sarahell, Tuesday, 5 November 2019 18:54 (four months ago) link

yeah, and I think that's at the root of it. I don't see them on the phone, but I do on the computer.

Book Doula (sleeve), Tuesday, 5 November 2019 19:01 (four months ago) link

The Android app is rubbish tbh. Sometimes when these things appear on the Web page there are new likes or comments way down your list from days ago that it wants you to acknowledge. I've had maybe the odd genuinely phantom notification but it lasted for a day or so and I've never had them mount up

Xia Nu del Vague (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 5 November 2019 19:03 (four months ago) link

i often get notifications based on the last time i used facebook on the particular device. ... esp. message notifications ... as opposed to the last time i used facebook and looked at the notifications

Logged in to FB after months away, immediately regretted it: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2164890463806836&id=100008577106113

God, when I see this ol thread, I think how long ago. Then I see it's only 13 years!

Mark G, Thursday, 5 December 2019 00:38 (three months ago) link

Yeah I prob should have posted that to the “why do I hate that...” other FB thread but somehow always remember this one instead.

Roz, Thursday, 5 December 2019 00:45 (three months ago) link

what's the regrettable thing at that link?

insecurity bear (sic), Thursday, 5 December 2019 01:21 (three months ago) link

not sure if you're asking about the content of the link or what's regrettable about it: it's a shitty conservative meme about "snowflakes".

if it's the latter, the reason i got off FB in the first place was so that I spend less mental space looking at terrible content, like shitty conservative memes about "snowflakes".

Roz, Thursday, 5 December 2019 02:08 (three months ago) link

if that's the one I'm thinking of, yeah it's pretty bad

sleeve, Thursday, 5 December 2019 02:56 (three months ago) link

the former, as a non-facebooker I couldn’t see it

insecurity bear (sic), Thursday, 5 December 2019 03:01 (three months ago) link

If you click on his profile all his other posts are about Catholicism and bacon. Not sure what I make of that.

all I want for Christmas is for the Facebook 'hide post' option to work.

ex-colleague uses it like Twitter and is forever posting crap memes and pictures of beer, things I don't mind seeing once, but given that the hide post option seems to do nothing, I have to scroll past them again and again.

koogs, Saturday, 4 January 2020 04:02 (two months ago) link

Unfollow ex-colleague?

nickn, Saturday, 4 January 2020 04:58 (two months ago) link

The local news feature in the iOS app is awful, just highlighting every petty crime so old people can panic some more.

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Saturday, 4 January 2020 05:49 (two months ago) link

un-following seems a bit drastic - some of it is interesting. it's just the drunken (?) chains of cat memes, the half-dozen pictures that he posts individually, or the French language stuff that annoys me. hide posts would be fine, if it worked.

(with the reposts you can hide all from the original poster and that seems to work. social fixer plugin has an alternative that works on desktop)

I use the Snooze for 30 Days option for a couple of my friends.

☮️ (peace, man), Saturday, 4 January 2020 10:39 (two months ago) link

i have a number of people i snooze for 30 days because they post too much
it's the best option imo bc at most i have to snooze them again, that's 1 click for 30 days of relief with no hurt feelings

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Saturday, 4 January 2020 15:07 (two months ago) link

I'd like a "hide stuff I don't wanna see" feature, but I guess AI isn't that far along yet.

nickn, Saturday, 4 January 2020 21:28 (two months ago) link

Run back Facebook did today.

They bought a story in a publication, pretended it wasn’t sponsored, their COO posted it, then when they got caught, they denied knowing anything about it.

And what was that ad/story about?

Their commitment to stopping disinformation.

Incredible.

four weeks pass...

the 'hide for 30 days' i did has obviously worn off. ex-colleague (see above) posted 17 (seventeen!) things on the 3rd, including 4 reposts from "Cinema, mon amour" which is some kind of arthouse movie screenshot farm.

koogs, Thursday, 6 February 2020 22:02 (one month ago) link

Yeah, I get movie bros posting shit from Cinema, Mon Amour too. Cringiest fucking name. Tru headz know we call it kino now anyway.
