App Fail: Group Chat

July 13, 2010

“Hey you! Be in my group! Now you’re in my group you can see how bad ass of a group mod I am! I even added a group chat to our little Facebook Community!”

You gotta love the vigilance of Facebook Group/Page recruiters and moderators but there’s more to love than this human species… or even internet bot species. There are the applications that are meant to enhance these communities. One for example, an application named “Group Chat” which offers a chat forum but also seems to spam the shit out of your friends list that it’s not supposed to have any access, what-so-ever, too. For example …

None of these people were in the group this app had been added to.

It sent out many notifications. These two screen shots are just two examples out of a dozen.

And it doesn’t look like Facebook did anything to discipline the app makers – as the app is still around even after a year of complaints.

The End.

Privacy Fail: Forced & Unwanted Friend Requests

June 17, 2010

Who doesn’t get friend requests from weirdos? I know I do. I tend to ignore them when Facebook respects my wish enough to give me that right to ignore them. There’ve been a few times though that Facebook has been like, “Oh you can’t ignore them. Sorry but no.”

Honestly. The thing with the Pedro… Pablo… whatever – dude is, I think the request got hung up in a server process. Somehow the server, instead of quantifying my input to ignore and block this person, just forgot wtf it was supposed to do and shuffled ol’ Pablo whatever off into the la-la land of the “Hanging Process.”

May 20, 2010

On the topic of functionality today. Someone asked us earlier this week, why does it take so long to load certain items off the applications menu? We don’t know but we do agree. That shit is sloooow!
