I am going absolutely nuts with Facebook. Can’t believe I hate it so much.
Here’s why I hate Facebook…
Strike 1 – I absolutely hate the new messy design. Usually, I take my time to start appreciating new versions of products. Finally, I do get adjusted and start to like them. However, the new Facebook look n feel is just too awful for me…
Strike 2 – Too many web apps and invitations. I just hate those awful web apps, which suck you into trying some new quiz only after you send invitations to 25 other people. I hate that…bugging people with invitations to take some random quiz. In addition, I get about half a dozen mails inviting me to participate in something or the other. I will scream bloody murder if I get yet another invitation to grow some lil green virtual patch of grass.
Strike 3 – Get accosted by random people who after a 20 min chat, I realize are not some long-lost friends, but truly random people.
Let me get this straight, I am not against social networking as such. In fact, I would consider myself as someone with a decent online presence. I am on:
- A wordpress blog
But Facebook is the only app that irritates the hell out of me. Much prefer Orkut’s saner and cleaner user experience.
Although, I have noticed that of late, Orkut also seems to be going the Facebook way, trying to add themes and apps making it much slower than it used to be.
Please…why can’t we have a more adult (and I don’t mean that in any XXX kind of way) social networking app. Surely, there is a significant market for social networking apps that are not quite so … juvenile ?
