Steve yeah that's true but it's very good for Facebook themselves in that people spend bludy ages on the site at any one time. Even more time than they did before that is.

Matt DC, Friday, 20 July 2007 16:12 (twelve years ago) link

I add an app then I delete an app. There should be an app for this.

Hey Ned, have you looked at Wikipedia today?:

"Did you know....that the nickname Ned arose from an instance of rebracketing, as children interpreted the term of endearment "mine Ed" as "my Ned"?"

you know the thing I find weirdest abt facebook? The gifts for a dollar thing. Speshly as they're not real gifts! Mind you, Today's Gift is a stinky skunk. Who'd want to send anyone a Stinky Skunk, real or virtual???

More proof that Americans are just wacky:

Sexual Offenders List Indiana
By Jason Ward
This application shows you the picture,name and address of registered sex offenders for your hometown in Indiana, plus you can easily check to see if the offender is on Facebook.

One would imagine there are lawsuit possibilities in this.

Instead of joining a pro-Boris Johnson group, why not join a “I was privately educated and would like to retain the unfair advantages handed out to me in life” group instead?

Actually Dom, I was thinking of starting one of those...

CharlieNo4, Wednesday, 25 July 2007 13:12 (twelve years ago) link

I'd join

Rubyredd, Wednesday, 25 July 2007 13:32 (twelve years ago) link

Curt1s Stephens, Wednesday, 25 July 2007 13:33 (twelve years ago) link

ummm... there is no 'recent tracks' tab... unless i'm blind...

Rubyredd, Wednesday, 25 July 2007 13:36 (twelve years ago) link

hrmmm you must have different version of the app than I do :/

Curt1s Stephens, Wednesday, 25 July 2007 13:36 (twelve years ago) link

THE INTRIGUE

Is it custom for someone in a school network to add EVERYONE in their school as friends? I am not a young person so I don't know, but it strikes me as odd.

admrl, Wednesday, 25 July 2007 16:38 (twelve years ago) link

i speak out purely for effect; facebook is, alas, a depressingly vital cog in my social organisation.

Just got offed, Wednesday, 25 July 2007 16:44 (twelve years ago) link

xpost not at my school. It's a waste to have thousands of meaningless "friends."

I thought I'd posted here asking about whether we had a Fantasty Football Mini-League? Seems I haven't, so, do we?

I added the "Daily Book of Mormon Passage" application. Thought it wd be major roffles. But i was rong.

Drooone, Wednesday, 25 July 2007 22:02 (twelve years ago) link

I have a Facebook Fantasy League team, but I probably won't bother with it much.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 25 July 2007 22:07 (twelve years ago) link

I seem to have mostly ended up with old IRC friends I honestly havent seen in years, which is kind of good I guess. No school friends, but I wouldnt want that anyway.

Facebook feels so isolated because it is so locked down.

Trayce, Wednesday, 25 July 2007 22:26 (twelve years ago) link

fucking fuck FUCK an old ex has just found me on facebook. he sent me a couple of messages, and in case i'd forgotten (which i hadn't) i've been reminded of just how incredibly stupid this guy is. oh, the shame :(

but i accepted his friend request because my fucking mother raised me with good manners.

Rubyredd, Thursday, 26 July 2007 13:04 (twelve years ago) link

Oops. You can unfriend him. I don't think a message gets sent!

kv_nol, Thursday, 26 July 2007 13:09 (twelve years ago) link

I think there's an option to remove people from your friend list. USE IT!!!

xpost :)

C J, Thursday, 26 July 2007 13:09 (twelve years ago) link

i know. i should have just ignored him. i mean, he's not friends with any of my friends and he lives in sydney, so i'm never going to run into him. but my mum has seriously ingrained a guilt complex in me about being unjustifiably rude.

now he's telling me how 'great' i look... i was good friends with one of his best mates and when i said 'hey if i send him a message will he remember me?' he replied with something like 'of course he will, who could forget you?' ewwwwwwwww

"Let me check my email - oh it says I have a new message on facebook. Let me check facebook" - repeat until crying blood. I guess as a way of increasing lack of productivity at work it's pretty successful. Except I don't check facebook at work anymore so I can't even read the messages, another reason to cut it out.

City ban on Facebook
By Mark Prigg and Sophie Borland, Evening Standard 27.07.07

About face: leading City firms such as Dresdner Kleinwort have blocked networking sites

More than two thirds of London companies - led by top City firms - are now banning or restricting the use of internet site Facebook over fears that staff are wasting time on it.

Many firms have now warned employees that "Facebooking" during office hours is a sackable offence.

An Evening Standard straw poll of major employers found that more than 70 per cent of the businesses, including banks, law firms, utility companies and government departments, have banned or limited access to social networking sites. Recent figures showed London has overtaken Toronto as the city with the most Facebook users in the world.

More than 826,000 people are registered on the site, a figure that has doubled since May.

The site was first banned by several American and Canadian companies who noticed the large amounts of time employees were spending on it.

A study found British users spend on average 191 minutes a month on Facebook and dozens of people have admitted to "Facebook addiction", where they check on their friends, and often exes, compulsively.

Our study found British Gas, the Met, Lloyds TSB and Bristows law firm all had internet filters preventing sites such as

Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and Hotmail being viewed at work.

A spokesman for Credit Suisse said: "Staff are forbidden from accessing the site while at work as it is thought that they are wasting company time and money."

A member of staff at investor Dresdner Kleinwort said: "The ban is widespread across all banking offices."

A spokesman for the law consultant-firm ELAS said companies-were well within their rights to sack staff for logging on to Facebook and that the site had caused numerous problems.

"Most contracts nowadays have a clause which restricts internet use to business-use only," he said.

"A manager could quite easily sack someone if they caught them using these social networking sites during office hours. Unless you can argue it is an important work tool, people should not be accessing these sites during work time."

Some companies have imposed "Facebook time" for employees.

"We have imposed a partial ban, allowing employees to access it during their lunch hour," said Amanda Turner of IT recruitment company MDA resources.

"We did have a problem with people using it for far longer than they should."

The internet site, which now has four million users in Britain, was set up in 2004 by 23-year-old American student Mark Zuckerberg.

He is facing a legal threat from a rival website, ConnectU, the owners of which allege they and Zuckerberg conceived Facebook while at Harvard University.
