Why I Hate Facebook

When I joined Facebook, it was addictive. I loved being on there, posting photos, exploring the profiles of my friends and liking things like a bandit. Now that the social network is getting a bit long in the teeth, it’s become the most annoying place in the world.

Take a look at the above image. When I logged onto Facebook this morning, that’s what I was greeted with. That’s not a News Feed. It’s a junk mail inbox ready to explode from bullshit.

I don’t care who plays what. I don’t care who you beat and I don’t know them. I don’t care whose photo or status you commented on and why even is it in my News Feed if I don’t know them. I don’t care who saved 50 cents on their coffee in the morning or who got a 2-for-1 pass to the cross-stitch fair coming up this weekend. Kindly GTFO of my feed, all of you.

I don’t mind who does what on Facebook, but why is it thrown in my face all the time? I just want to know about events, photos and status updates, not offers, games and other people’s shit.

If anyone wants me, I’ll be on Twitter.
