Facebook rant part 2 – Charges, and updates only reaching 17% of ‘friends’
These days, Facebook is covered in bullshit advertisements, crap all over the fucking wall trying to entice us to spend our hard earned (stolen) cash on addictive gambling games or picture memes (more on those things later). Most of these get pride of place on our wall thanks to them having enough money to pay to be there.
Facebook now charges people to ensure that their post will appear on their own ‘friend’s’ wall! A friend of mine recently wanted to share a link I created and was smashed aggressively in the face with a message suggesting they pay about 5 quid so that their share appears on everyone’s wall!
I have a group with over 80 likers, this is nice, I like this and the people who like my page are the best people on the planet and WILL NOT be brutally slain when I return from a disappearance that takes place in 2020. Even people who have taken the time to ‘like’ my page do not get to see my updates. It was recently estimated that 17% of the people who like the page will get to see my updates UNLESS, when you are in my page, you click on the gear symbol next to the “Like” button, and select “ADD TO THE INTEREST LISTS”. By doing so, you will keep on reading posts in your feed. .
Fuck you Facebook!
