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!

Fun Facebook application bullshit…
The app developer has started putting a “sign up” splash page for something called “Farm Place” or whatever in the place of the original launch page. The new page is designed almost identically to the actual “play farm pals” page so when you click the “play button” that should be on the actual legit game launch page, you end up clicking on a completely different “app sign up” and then you have to immediately cancel the registration. This is very shady trickery. I consider this to fall under spam and false advertisement but most importantly, its a malicious and unethical attempt to gain access to my Facebook identity via one more 3rd party app gateway without my upfront consent. This has happened to me three times now in launching the “Farm Pals” app from my bookmarks.
We just checked ol’ Farm Pals and the application is still running like that. After 5-months, Facebook still hasn’t responded to the complaint.
