He who enters here, abandon all hope

I'm fed up with Facebook.

And there are several reasons for that.

On the face of it, it looks like a way to communicate with people and get the warm and fuzzies... but it seems more like a sort of electronic stamp collecting program.

You "make friends" with someone and you get a token, their picture added to your page, so you know them and they know you... only neither of you do, neither of you speak ever again.

To quote Pauline Hanson "I don't like it"

I don't see the value in that, it's less than a warm handshake and "Here, take my business card". It leaves me feeling cold.

The other problem is the design, what I want... Me, Myself... Is to write stuff on my page, because that's what I do. And it's tricky because I spend a few minutes each time I log in wondering what I press to access a place to actually write something... and if I find a place to write, is it the right place to write?

I like obvious controls. "Press this bloody huge green button here to add to your blog" that's too much to expect, but the system they use here at Blogspot is miles easier than Facebook.

When I log into Facebook, I also get apps thrown at me right and left.
"So-n-so bought you for $1000" No they didn't, F*ck off... Wolfie is no one's pet.

Or I've got an offer [I can't refuse?] to join a Mafia game, No thanks.

So it's a lot of clicking "stop this application" before I even get where I might find somewhere I can click to possibly write something down.

I want "Stop ALL applications"

Yes, I'm sure they're a nice gesture in some way or another, but they drive me bonkers and *I don't want them*.

Finally, after being completely fed up, I tried to kill off my Facebook page, but the only problem is, you can't... Once they've got you, it's forever.

It's like some sort of internet Hell which you can never leave with a lot of little devils prodding you with "applications" which is what demons use these days, considering pointy forks are a bit passé these days.

When Queen sang "Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me" in Bohemian Rhapsody, They were probably talking about Facebook.

I'm certain that Hell is lined with computers these days, and naughty people are made to use them for eternity.

You might think it's funny, but even though I'm online a lot, I actually hate computers. To me, a computer is a way to a means... I feel it's like having a fairly old car that isn't fancy, but it gets you from A to B, which is the point. I don't care if it's a Mac or a PC, at the end of the day if you made it to your destination safely then you've done what had to be done.

I need to finish off by saying that no, I'm not angry with anyone for sending me apps or friending me or any of that, I'm just annoyed with the whole Facebook thing.

I don't get the warm and fuzzies that Secondlife offers.

I need love, I need contact, I need tummy rubs and a pat on the head and to be called "good doggie" by sweet little girls with big lollypops.

AwwwooooOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooo.... *sniff*

*Sad puppy eyes*
