God I hate Facebook. It is a piece of crap!

There is something wrong with the world… very wrong.  Facebook is a terrible, terrible, terrible app – and it’s worth many billions of dollars.  Everything about Facebook is wrong. 

Picture this… You get an email saying that a friend has left you a "message" and that you should [click here] to view it.  When you [click here] you are taken to a page that asks you whether or not you would like "Add an application" – WRONG.  You then spend the next 10 minutes trying to work out how to view the message that a "friend" left you without having to "add an application".

And that’s just the notifications stuff… there’s so much more about Facebook that is wrong.

Facebook is crap.  And people will pay billions of dollars for it… WRONG!  Why is Facebook popular?

  1. I seem to remember someone telling me that FaceBook was the new hotness not long ago. I think with all these things it is worth creating an account so you have another channel on which people can reach you. But if the tool doesn\’t meet your usuability requirements then you don\’t have to commit to doing anything more than signing up.
     
    I actually it very hard to navigate myself, and I suspect that the answer for successful FaceBook usage lies in removing all the popular apps and just using the ones that you personally have a use for. My daugther actually uses FaceBook to send messages to her other 5yo friends!!!

  2. Darren,
     
    You already know what I think about these social networking web apps.
    I do like what Mitch Denny says which is true for any software;
    install only those apps you are going to use and the options you need to
    accomplish your tasks.
     
    The other day I had a case of dyslexia and used the
    names MyBook and FaceSpace…. Oooofff.

  3. Someone suggested I get onto Facebook a while ago. When I first started I let all the application invitations pile up and I wasn\’t being very social. Then I decided to just accept everything but limit each application\’s integration into my profile. Now I\’ve removed all the applications except a couple that are sensible and I reject all future application requests.
     
    I just like finding people that I haven\’t seen in years and seeing what they\’re up to these days.

  4. Amen, Brother!!

  5. G\’day Darren – not defending Facebook as such, but playing devil\’s advocate: if there was an option to turn "application" requests off, would this improve your opinion?
     
    Cheers, Thomas

  6. Hi Thomas… unfortunately not.  My dissatisfaction with Facebook runs a lot deeper than something so simple.  The application is thoroughly broken from a workflow perspective.  To get where they are today, they\’ve obviously relied upon a lot of trust – which has worked for them with their tight knit communities and relatively small pool of applications – so that they can assume that most people will install most applications that come their way.  This won\’t always be the case… and that\’s where the workflows really start to break.
     
    There\’s heaps of other UX issues though.  It looks nicer than MySpace… but, in terms of usability – it sucks just about as much.
