Facebook, a strange set up with the walled garden that reminds me of the AOL days.
It’s lame, yet I can also see why they have done this, as Jesse mentioned on a friendfeed thread they have control over it all … the fact it’s a walled garden means they should be able to sort the spammers from the real people fairly easily, yet they are lame when it comes to this sort of thing, nothing stopping a spammer getting banned then setting up a new account..
You give to facebook, they take away from you.
The Iframe they use is also a bad idea in my eyes, they stop people commenting on my blog itself by shoving that “comment” link on the Iframe leading people to leave comments on facebook, yeah selfish bastards.
How is that fair? WHY am I building their business up only to be kicked in the teeth like this?
Shame really as I was starting to feel like facebook will be my main social site, having real offline friends on there makes it so much different to other social sites.
There is a possibility I was “reported” by someone, if so, what a chicken shit.
But facebook won’t share this with us, so it makes it hard to change anything.
They need to open up this set up more, start being honest with us all, clarify their lame rules and limits, else they will just drive people away like AOHell did.
I am very close to dumping it completely.
