Facebook: The Official Site of Finding Out Which of Your High School Friends are Racist and/or Crazy
If you watched the Fox News/Facebook GOP Presidential Debate, you heard more of the same: the GOP believes that the Federal Government has no place in determining the public school curriculum but does want to regulate women’s reproductive health issues. That sort of thing. Then there’s the Donald Trump/Megyn Kelly stuff… not surprising. (Clearly, FOX had an agenda in the debate and boy did Trump take the bait!) But none of this stuff is surprising. Neither is the Facebook question above – but it is a big problem for the GOP. I shall explain! Read the rest of this entry
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 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!
I’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. Read the rest of this entry
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.
As 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.
While I do have a Facebook page for CreativeJamie.com, I’m still not sure I understand why every business needs one. Take Lays for example: you find them on Facebook and get their updates in your feed, but what in the hell are they going to tell you?
“Just put some chips on the truck!”
“Steve got hit by the fork lift – LOL!”
“Please hit the LIKE button to wish Steve a speedy recovery!”
Social networking is all well and good, but this is probably a case of overkill.
No pun intended, Steve.
