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.

Here’s your Friday’s win, we got each other sick this last week and we’re all basically miserable and on our deathbeds. Win for Facebook! Hilarious for you! Fail for us. I drew the short straw and had to share this lulz but now I’m going back to lay down. =|

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.”



Share: Preoccupied

We know we’ve slowed down posts recently and want to apologize. We’ve been mortified with the oil spill in the Gulf.

And now double mortified with a second BP oil spill in Alaska.

We like to say we know how to rank issues and the most immediate one is this sickening disaster. So in light of what’s happening to the Gulf, the coastlines, the fishermen there, and everyone’s economic well-being we want to share our ideology of an all out solution to this unchecked dependence that’s ruining our lives. And you know what? It fits right in with the 5th anniversary of the death of our good friend who suffered in her last moments as a cement truck knocked her off her bicycle, running her over on her way to work on June 3rd.

Our ideology for cutting oil dependence is to cut its use. Not the basic suggestions of turning your lights off but with a greater goal of limiting oil’s usage.

We dream of a future where cities are bicycle only. It takes us an hour to ride 30-miles on a bicycle. We understand cities aren’t all 30-miles in circumference, some are larger but you know what? We don’t want to die from an environmental disaster, from a cement truck, or from the aggravation of sitting in rush hour traffic on a fucking Saturday!  Right now, your drive to see the city for the weekend from you boring burb is an issue. Your drive to the grocery store, is an issue. Your daily commute to your job is… that’s right, an issue. You’re dependent beyond your control.

Stop letting these ass hat blue-bloods tell us how the economy and society are to work. Stop using their systems. The only way to fix this problem is with new, off the wall, sort of thinking. Cut vehicle traffic out of cities. Use bikes and public transit in cities. Get your groceries, go see your friends, go to work on a bike or train. No cars in the city unless for exceptions, like life or death situations and regulated construction routes. No cars in the city but do use them for great distances like a trip from Louisville to Nashville, NYC to Philadelphia, San Fran to LA…

We realize this is a crude ideology but we think it has a ring of solution to it. And now back to the Facebook monitoring program.
