    I've never rooted so hard for a company to fail as I have for facebook. Mark Zuckerberg seems like such a smarmy guy and the company doesn't ever seem to do right by its users...

    Me too. He's such a douche.

    Your contribution to the world is a better marketed myspace. Ugh. Just go the way of "Tom" already.

    I hate to admit it, but I still have a Facebook account. I used to post on an awesome forum that eventually closed down and a bunch of us decided to keep in touch via facebook until we found a new stomping ground. I don't use my real name or any other real details and I barely check the fucking thing, but even with the limited time I've used it, I found it all creepy as fuck.

    Facebook manipulated me into feeling emotions such as disgust.

    It's fostered narcissism as a national pasttime, the idea that a dot com with no plausible plan for profitability can be a great stock to buy, and that a nitwit with no ideas or talent besides stolen ones is someone Presidents need to consult with.

    Maybe Facebook will get the blame for the next mass shooting and be banned.

    I loved the evolution from horny internet nerd > copies myspace > becomes political genius on immigration issues. I hate that site and zuckerberg to no end. They are, however, compiling pretty nice advertising metrics, on par or better than google, if thats your gig. If the idiots of this world want to post their lives on a public medium then let them. The smart people targeting specific demographics and selling a product will profit accordingly.

    Only geezers still use Facebook.

    Shocking, I know, who wouldn't want to be connected to every mid-life crisis cougar & Hallmark grandmarm on a site that was designed to get you laid in college.

    it's all about getting users to be consumers. the ads, the data mining EVERYTHING! but now thanks to the NSA and obama administration, our fucked up gov't monitors everything we do as well (and that's what i think is scary)!!!!

    i never understood the internet stocks that don't produce a thing like facebook, twitter, google, aol, etc going into the stratosphere. it's all about information, not "things" like consumer goods.

    Isn't this an old school-new building news media game?
