Every time I log in to Facebook, I think of Demetri Martin

Every time I log in to Facebook, most of the posts make me think of that graph Demetri Martin showed on his now defunct Comedy Central show.

Anyway, wasn’t Important Things with Demetri Martin an awesome show? No idea why it didn’t get picked up for a third season… Well, it probably didn’t make money. What other reason could there be? That show was awesome!

Thanks for 1000 Likes!

Thanks so much to everyone for visiting the site, hitting the like button, rating posts, dropping comments, following on Facebook, Twitter and WordPress – all that jazz! It may sound  silly, but I greatly appreciate it. Just knowing that people are out there reading the stuff and watching the videos…  It’s great. I can’t verbalize what it means to me, but I did want to take a sec to say thanks.
You folks rock!

A Facebook user takes the high road

There’s nothing quite like a Facebook vent, is there?

Any car owner knows that eventually, something bad is going to happen to your car.   That’s life. It’s frustrating.   And venting is a good thing -it’s good to let it out…  But maybe everyone should be more careful of what they let out where.

“Hi, I’m your Facebook Friend, and it’s Awful!”

facebookI’m fairly good at avoiding Facebook.  This is an essential part of my life because I’m anti social and loving it.  Sure, I’m comfortable with going to restaurants, the movies and what not, but talking to strangers?  That would be CRAZY.  Also, everyone out there seems to be inferior to Dr. Girlfriend, and I’m just not good with disappointment.

Still, I use Facebook (and other social media) to support the site (“Like CreativeJamie.com on Facebook!  Get immediate updates for each new post, site news and more!  Like CreativeJamie.com on Facebook!) and I will look in from time to time to see what my ‘friends’ are posting in the news feed.  I need to stop doing that.

Perhaps the best ad I’ve ever seen on Facebook

Those ads on the right side of Facebook sure are… I dunno, ineffective? The ones I notice are always politically driven and nowhere close to my own political ideologies… that is, until the one I saw today.

You may have once heard that Donation was the greatest nation on earth. That may not be wrong, but it should be pointed out that not only does this ad promise to pay those that donate sperm, but the ‘Got Sperm?’ slogan along with the sperm as the question mark is positively genius! (Have to wonder if the ‘Got Milk?’ guy is pissed, though.) I bet this ad does well from an ROI perspective.

 

Stop asking me to sign in to Facebook or Twitter for EVERYTHING!

facebookI am completely and totally sick of every single website on the internet asking me to sign in to my Facebook or Twitter account to do the slightest thing.  I can’t even sign a petition concerning animal rights without being prompted to log in to a stupid social network I don’t even know why I still belong to in the first place.  (cough-marketing this website-cough)  The simplest of operations now requires a linking of databases, accounts, usernames and who the hell knows what… it’s ridiculous.  I just want to take care of my business quickly and efficiently (which is the single greatest advantage the internet has over traditional means), and it shouldn’t require a satellite hook up!  I don’t want to share every damn thing or give these networks additional information for them to continually quantify the advertisements they post in face.

Grrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

A Day On Facebook

facebookAs someone who just posts the latest blog entries from this site on Facebook and does little else, the concept is a bit of a mystery to me.  I took a look at what was posted at a random time on a random day so I could share a sample of what I came across and how I felt about it.  The names have been removed to protect the innocent and although my intention was not to offend anyone, feel free to curse me out in the comments – although this will expose you as one of the status updatees.
