Ah Facebook. It’s the worlds worst catch 22.
Your effed if you don’t have it; People now use it for celebs, deals, contests, promotion and establishing social existence. Meeting others in an overpopulated world. Keeping tabs on your SO (significant other). Staying in touch long distance. Meeting new business contacts.
Your are effed if you do have it; Unmanageable, trite, childish, your mom’s on it, time waster. Relationship killer and an easy way to get fired. Fake accounts, spam bots and now, video ads in your timeline in 2013.
What the hell Zuckerberg? Yes it’s true. According to our lovely geeks at Wired.com;
Facebook plans to unveil 15-second video ads by April within both mobile and desktop news feeds, several advertising executives tell Ad Age. The ads will start playing automatically, according to two of the executives, and Facebook has reportedly not decided whether to mute audio from the ads.
Ad Age reports that the commercials will even expand beyond the middle web page section that normally contains the news feed, taking over the left and right rails of the page as well.
Facebook declined to comment.
Thank you Mark Zuckerberg for continually turning this into Friendster/Myspace. Soon everyone will be canceling accounts and officially ‘quitting this shit’. Including me. Facebook’s site is starting to look like AOL in the 90s. Oh the emoticons, nice touch. That killed it.
In the meantime we suffer well. What do you think of recent Facebook changes?
