You know what pisses me off

People on the internet, but more importantly people on the internet who whine and complain like they own the fucking place. A terrific example is Facebook. Now I love facebook. It allows me to keep in touch with people I would other wise not, it’s a fantastic way of organizing local events for friends and family alike and it has to be the best place on the web to very easily share your pictures.

But certain people will always find fault, even when these people are avid users of the service. There are 2 different kind of whinners on Facebook. First are the people who whine and bitch about the amount of information that Facebook HQ is privy to and how they choose to share this kind of information with other partners of theirs. Now I’m sorry, but any and all information you post to your Facebook profile is of your own will. People who post phone numbers, addresses, class scheduels and other information that does not need to be shared with 100 million peopleĀ  are fucking dumb to turn around and get all pissy that Facebook shares that kind of information with ad buyers and various other partners. If you don’t want people to find this kind of shit out, DON’T FUCKING POST IT!!!

The second kinda of whinny bitch Facebook has seen a lot of over the past couple weeks are the people who are not at all happy with the new design of Facebook. Facebook is a free fucking service, If everyone was paying a couple bucks a month to have be able to log in then i would feel more inclinded to not freak out at people who hate the new design, but as it stands Facebook is FREE!!! Stop whinning over a terrific service given to you free of cost when they decide to change things up a little bit. If you people would just take a couple minutes to figure out the new design and realize that it is in fact a much better product than ever before we wouldn’t all be in this mess!!!

That is my rant for the day.

    A counterpoint to the second part. Facebook is only free in that someone does not transfer any of their money to Facebook Inc. to use the standard features of the site. What people are spending is their time. The amount of time being spent on Facebook, which translates into page loads, affects how much Facebook Inc. can charge advertisers. It is entirely possible for Facebook Inc. to develop an alternate version that has the back end benefits of the new Facebook and looks like the old Facebook. If those dissatisfied with new Facebook weren’t vocal about it, there would not be an incentive to do something like this. The complaint isn’t that new Facebook looks better, it is that it looks different. Even though there usually isn’t a monetary transaction between Facebook Inc. and the users of Facebook, there is an economic transaction. It is in Facebook Inc.’s interests to satisfy their users, so it’s users should be able to vocalize their dissatisfaction.

    Glad that’s out of your system.

    Now I’d like to talk to you about Jesus…

    (Seriously, a rant like that followed by a comment like the one above would likely get some poor bastard killed in some places.)

    Can we have happy James now?
