It’s been a long long time since I blogged something related to Friendster and I don’t think I would be doing that any longer. Those were the days when Friendster used to be a hit in our country but not anymore. The evolution of Facebook had plunged Friendster down the list and I don’t think any of my friends cares about it for now, even myself.
Talking about Facebook, I got attracted to it due to the following reasons:
- The status update
- The photo commenting option
- The simplicity
- The seriousness
- And not forgetting the non-existence of bandwidth-hogging features
While there are many things that could get myself attached to Facebook for hours, here are some of the things that annoys me:
1) Annoying “Status Update”
Every morning, when I open up my Facebook, I expect to see some nice photos of some chicks being tagged, some random albums and even some nice and funny status updates. But no matter what, there would always be some status updates that annoy me to the max, let alone if it floods your homepage. Here is an example of “a” status update: (The following is a real case)
An Indian girl (Let’s call her Nisha):
Nisha Guys, what do you think about my picture? Do I look fat? ^=^
9 minutes later
Nisha Guys, I changed my profile pic! How do I look now? ^=^
6 minutes later
Nisha Thanks for all the comments guys. Please go through my profile pictures and let me know which picture I should put okay? Hugz and kisses to all!! ^=^
Again, 9 minutes later
Nisha @some-asshole suggested that I should put the current picture! Thanks to him because I love it too!! Huggsss to you da! muax muax
So, by the time I opened my Facebook, there would be like 4 status updates by the same person flooding my homepage. To best describe my feelings in a picture, click on the following spoiler. A picture speaks a thousand words.

2) Status vandalism
Some people just love to ‘like’ their own status and only god knows why. For every status that they put, regardless of there are any comments or any other ‘likes’, the very own person who posted his/her status would be liking it instantly. Also, guys should always be extra-careful when liking the status updates of some Indian girls. When a girl posts something to indicate that she has just broken up with her super-duper-loving BF, guys who liked her status can either be:
1) Liking the fact that she is now vulnerable
2) So-called “showing concern”
So, if Nisha mistakenly assumes that the guy is of category (2)
Nisha Thanks for your concern da.. You are so sweet
Be prepared to post the same status in 2 months time.
Seriously, I can’t wait for this feature to be implemented. Once this is up, I bet I would use this feature more often compared to the “Like this”.
4) Double standard
Yes, double standard. Let’s say there is a guy who posts a status saying “Good morning friends! Love you all” and check back his status within 12 hours time and what will you see? 0 comments. But when a super-duper-hot-clubbing-girl posts the same status, check back within 12 hours and you will see “46 comments” with the last comment by a guy saying:
“Good night da, sleep well ok? *Hugz*”.
Although this “issue” doesn’t seem to be annoying, but I really do feel pity for those guys who posted in the intention to gain some comments and interaction via his posting but in the end, no one bothered about his status. Our machan buta.com.
5) Pillows, Gifts, Pets and etc
My profile is currently flooded with all these shits, especially those ‘pillow fights’, gifts, wishes and all those crap. Come on guys, don’t you think it’s damn annoying if you happened to view someone’s profile, clicking on the “Older posts” at least 5 times and all you get is a bunch of pillow fights, gifts and wishes? For god sake, THIS IS FUCKING ANNOYING! There is a solution, which is to block the application straightaway but these things come in different versions (gifts, hearts, postcards, smiles) and sooner or later there would be some additions as follows:
Nisha just sent you a dick!
I hope you like it!
Reply: Send back a dick
Nisha just sent you a prostitute!
I hope you like it!
Reply: Send back a gigolo
Nisha just sent you a blowjob!
I hope you like it!
Reply: Send back a lick
You see, for each of these shits, I can’t be hogged to click on the “Block application” link all the time so I do really hope those senders would realise on how fucking annoying they have been by sending all these.
6) You have been tagged!
Oh finally one of my friend uploaded a group picture and tagged me. That is what I “expect” to think whenever I see the “You have been tagged” notification. But wait, instead of a group picture, there would be a picture of a puppy or a pussy and around 100 people would be tagged all over. All sort of comments would be making its way instantly and by the time I re-opened my Facebook, there would be like 20+ notifications, all indicating that XXX and YYY has commented on this photo.
- Thanks for tagging me da
- Soooooooooo cute the puppy
- Oh thank you!
- Wow so nice the pussy
I wondered to myself, why the hell on earth do people gotta ‘thank’ for being tagged in an unrelated photo?
As always, my reaction would be:
So that’s it for now guys. I can go on and on about this but let’s stop here for the time being. Let’s see what you guys hate about Facebook.
