Get off my Facebook!

Get off my Facebook!

Every time I see a promoted post on Facebook, I always see this comment:

Get off my Facebook!


Let me break down everything I hate about that comment.

  • Since when do you own Facebook? Last I checked, you were too busy clicking on cat photos and inspirational quotes to invest in Facebook stock.
  • How do you think Facebook is paid for? Do you think Faceboook just runs flawlessly every day through magical elves? Or that thousands of people spend countless hours developing code for fun? Advertisers pay lots of money to display ads so you can keep coming back for free.

What else can I give to you for free to bitch about?

    Twitter is the same way. I hate seeing complaints about individuals and companies. Hey folks, there’s a button for that…it’s called UNFOLLOW.

    And once again, the service is free. You really only have a right to complain if you pay for it.

      If you block ads and content from specific users, they’ll actually stop showing them to you.

      On the other hand, if you comment on it, you’ll get even more. Crazy how that works.
