How long has Facebook been doing this? It’s a nice touch and would definitely be useful for planners to judge the success of their events.
Mark Zuckerberg, Time’s Person of the Year.
I had no idea Zuckerberg was so freckled…and generally plain. Lovely eyes though.
My Cityville Challenge.
This is what it’s like playing Zynga’s Cityville when you refuse to add any friends. Every 30 seconds is a pop up with a variance of the following, “Hey, why not add friends?” “Hey, you could really use some help on your failing economy.” “Maybe if you had some friends, your wife wouldn’t have left you, just saying. Play Cityville today!”
It’s a shame, because I find the game itself rather polished. I would easily pay $15 for this, without all the unnecessary road blocks and time sinks. Isn’t it enough to just pay up front for a cute, social version of SimCity?
I have the exact same issue with Facebook applications. They sound super cool, but then I can’t advance because I don’t want to bug my friends to add the application or friend strangers just to have neighbors. I complained about this to Keane, who is one of the community managers on a Slide game, and he pointed out that it’s social gaming. You’re supposed to play with friends. PSHH.
I actually am excited for this.
I’m hesitant about Facebook’s new messaging system, but I can’t get enough of this increasingly popular video style, where the centerpiece is someone’s scribbles. In this, you actually see the person behind the art; they’re literally being transparent.
The anecdote at the end about the sentiment attached to a box of letters/memories is well-delivered too. Way to hit me in the heart, Facebook.
FYI, EVERYONE. Make sure to protect your privacy! If you didn’t hear yesterday, Facebook’s new location-based app, Facebook Places, allows you to check in whereever you are. However, if the group you’re hanging out with is logging their whereabouts for their network to see, they can also tag YOU, and that’ll be broadcasted on your wall. (Just like when someone tags you in a status update.)
“Oh hell no” is right.
