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

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 (nine months ago) link
what's the regrettable thing at that link?
― insecurity bear (sic), Thursday, 5 December 2019 01:21 (nine 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".

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

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

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.

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

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 (eight 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

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

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.— Ben Collins (@oneunderscore__) January 9, 2020

every last detail of that is tasty
― Milton Parker, Thursday, 9 January 2020 03:21 (eight months ago) link
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 (seven months 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.

filter has expired again, 7 posts today. man united have done something, here's a picture of the rain, the daily mash has posted something funny, gammon watch has posted something funny, a news article about millennials...

Blocked by Facebook. Not following community standards. this is bogus.
it's asking for my phone number for 2fa. it's asking for a picture of me so it can check it's me (check against what though? - i've not uploaded any other photos of me)

Seem to be a lot of companies that have decided to stop advertising on this site.
― Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 27 June 2020 03:28 (three months ago) link
my company just warned us not to say controversial things if we say we work for them on our FB profile, or we can be disciplined.
this is why my job shows as "Fey Canoes", and why I don't use my Christian name on Twitter or anywhere else.

They've finally forced me into the new layout (on a laptop) and it's so horrible. I thought it couldn't get more ugly BUT IT DID

There was still a switch under options for me on Friday.

Does anyone know if it's possible to turn off the delightful feature of fb automatically popping up a message window whenever visiting a business page?
This has just started happening for me with the new layout.
― brain (krakow), Sunday, 6 September 2020 12:06 (three weeks ago) link
I just went through and looked at a bunch of businesses that I have liked. Some of them have the message window pop-up and some don't, which makes me think maybe it's something on their end.
While I was going through though, I noticed a bunch of weird stuff that I didn't recognize in my likes. A movie called Scare Dares that seems to have never been released. A Disney Junior page, but not the one sanctioned by Disney. A link to a shady-looking external website titled "I can't believe a GIRL did this because of Justin Bieber - Website". In the case of the first two, clicking on the link brought up an error page that read "This Content Isn't Available Right Now. When this happens, it's usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it's been deleted." For the Bieber scam site, the message was "You Can't Go to This Link From Facebook. The link you tried to visit goes against our Community Standards." But as far as I can tell, I'm left with no way to unlike these things!
― peace, man, Sunday, 6 September 2020 12:31 (three weeks ago) link
the new layout is awful.
I actually have taken a one week vacation from FB (using messenger only) and Jesus, why didn't I do this earlier. my mood has been so much better.
