I ran across this blog post and it made me laugh. (not out loud)
I’ll add my own reasons for not liking Facebook below:
1. It sucks as a platform to promote music. When I send 20 or so friend requests, Facebook warns me that my behavior is suspicious and that my account could be blocked or deleted. Talk about WAY too sensitive. Do a search about this on Google, I’m not alone.
2. What has been touted as a “clean” interface is boring to us artist types. No background images, no color changes, no CSS, no customization whatsoever. Sure, I can add all kinds of dumb apps to my page, but my page still looks like everybody else’s page. BORING.
What I LOVE about facebook:
1. Their video quality is OUTSTANDING. I have uploaded several 720×480 vids recently and they all play back at full size and look almost as good as the originals. Even vimeo.com, which has great quality doesn’t play videos back at full size. YouTube has something to learn here from Facebook.
UPDATE: Facebook blocked my account for adding friends. How useless. I had to wait a week or so before I was able to add a friend again. Now, Facebook is warning me for sending too many messages – and all I was doing was responding to messages people had sent me!
