I'm fresh from watching Catfish on More4 this evening, a 2010 American Documentary film that follows the relationship between a 24-year old New York photographer and a 19 year old Michigan woman and her family over Facebook. I was intrigued by the trailer for this and knew it'd be the sort of film I would enjoy. There's something about Facebook and the way it's changed the way we live our lives that I find fascinating.

I haven't been looking forward to a film as I have The Social Network for quite some time. From the moment I first saw the familiar white lettering on the blue background I was intrigued. Don't get me wrong, I'm no Facebook junkie; sure I blog about it now and again and I'm on it every day (but who isn't these days). But I think it's more the awe-inspiring story of the 26-year old billionaire that had the idea that gets me.

I've always silently despised the Maybe option when RVSPing to an event on Facebook. Why is it there? It's turning the 'Facebook generation' into a fickle, undependable bunch of people.

Apologies for this rant, but it's something I'd like to share. Something that has come about fairly recently on Facebook (correct me if I'm wrong) is fan pages. Now as I understand, these are for celebrities, musicians, actors, etc. - anyone who has "fans". However it seems the intellectually-challenged sector of Facebook has managed to confuse and misuse this feature.

I'm ashamed to say as of yesterday I am officially a Bejeweled addict. More specifically, Facebook's app Bejeweled Blitz. I warn you, do not get into this. It will take over your life!

10 reasons why 99% of photos on Facebook suck

Ok, this is a little bit of a rant. Along with my photography hobby I also developed an annoying smugness for all photos. I'm a self confessed photo snob. It's unfortunate, because I once used to enjoy browsing photos on Facebook. Now, it's a case of, "wow that photo sucks", "oh my", "damn - what were they thinking", "oh it gets worse", etc. So to celebrate this rather ugly trait of mine, here is my compiled list of the top 10 reasons why Facebook photos suck.

The Facebook Status Dilemma - 1st or 3rd person?

Wednesday, 2 September 2009 8:01 pm
tags: facebook random

This is something that has puzzled me since Facebook had the big design overhaul and changed the way a few features of the site worked. Remember, there was an uproar? I don’t remember exactly when it happened, but it was around September last year. I’m talking about the way we now update our status on Facebook.
