Facebook, I love you, but you're bringing me down.
I don't know about you, but I grow tired of having to ignore Facebook's Applications. About a month ago I decided to just let them pile up to see how many I would get in a month's time. I received 71 application invites during that time. Don't get me wrong, some of them can be alright. Some are even positive (for charities, etc.). I have a couple on my account. But, for the most part I view them as silly and a waste of time. I realize I am probably in the minority, but it wouldn't hurt my feelings one bit if Facebook did away with allowing these applications.
Here are 20 Reasons I Despise Facebook Apps.
- Best Friend Requests - We're Facebook friends. This does not mean we are best friends. In fact, we may not even be friends.
- My Favorite '80's Hair - Guess what? I don't have a favorite '80's hair. I grew up in the 80's and I don't remember any of them being cool.
- Relative Requests - This one is kind of nice, but I don't need an application to remind me that we're related.
- MyCalendar (Birthdays) - Another one that isn't too bad, but Facebook tells me when your birthday is. I'll keep it that way.
- Mafia Wars - If yous send me one more of these requests I'm gonna have my friend, Joey Bag o' Donuts, pay you a visit.
- Knighthood Requests - Unless you're the Queen of England, no thanks.
- Sketch Me - I don't care for these things at Disneyland. Why would I bother on Facebook?
- Lil' Green Patch - Cabbage Patch Kids?
- '80's High School Flashback - I may be old, but I wasn't in high school in the '80's. You were??!
- Silver Dollar City Request - No, no, no!
- Social Calendar - Want to hang out? Call me.
- You're Cool - Thanks, but you didn't have to send me an application to let me know.
- Star Wars Figures - Why does this even exist?
- '80's Music - What is it with these applications and the '80's?
- SuperPoke Pets - Send me with a "SuperPoke" anything, I'll ignore it every single time.
- Dancing Bananas - Unless it's peanut butter jelly time, no thanks.
- My Girls - Seriously? I was sent that? Have I mentioned that I believe most people invite indiscriminately? Case in point.
- Optical Illusions - I wish it were.
- Groupie Request - Ummm... no.
- Snowball Fight - I hate snow. I hate snow even more if it comes by way of an application.
How about you? How do you feel about the Facebook Applications?
