Facebook Haters Club

Facebook Haters Club published on 3 Comments on Facebook Haters Club

It is no secret that there are many people out there that absolutely hate facebook.

In fact, FB has become the default website to blame for most of the wrongs on the internet. In someway or another, haters can track a relationship between facebook and pretty much any bad thing they happen to face.
Yep, facebook has taken over the title of “cause of the downfall of humankind”, which television used to hold.

So many people openly hate facebook, yet many of those same people use it all the time.
It is a weird, self-abusive kind of relationship that I personally do not understand.

It is true that information can be shared via facebook,which you may not want to have shared. Yet, the people complaining about this are the same people that put the info there in the first place.
If you don’t want the info online, then just simply DON”T PUT IT ONLINE.

Unfortunately, common sense seems to be turned off when a lot of people log-on to the internet, and this means that after they do something stupid online, they need someone to blame. So they turn to FB.

Many of the reasons that people hate facebook are silly little things that can, and should be, overlooked if you want to use facebook.
Getting angry & starting a group because you don’t like the font facebook is written in is ridiculous.
(Although, any groups asking for Friend suggestions to be stopped are totally OK with me. *LIKE*)
There are not just groups, but entire sites devoted to hating on FB, such as sickfacebook.com. These sites have top-notch articles on them, like “How Facebook makes you Dumb and Stupid“,  “6 Advantages of Not Using Facebook” and “Facebook is Stupid

I find it ironic that the articles on this site have a “Share to Facebook” link. Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of the site?

At least the Quit Facebook Day site had a clear objective to achieve. Granted, it failed miserably, but it let you know WHY it was asking you to leave facebook. Sites like SickFacebook are unclear in their aims and appear just to be against FB for the sake of it.

Overall, I am not personally anti-facebook, but there are things about it which annoy me.
However, I also realise that I need to understand that using FB is a choice I make, not a requirement to living.
And if I really find that I hate it, I can leave.
Or else, I can just go onto twitter and slag it off,like any other self respecting social-media user would do.

This comic is my way of saying Happy 40th Birthday Sesame Street!
Like many other children around the world, I grew up with the Sesame Street Gang.
They taught me the following important life lessons:

– vampires are only really interested in counting, not blood sucking
– monsters are friendly & always hairy
– if you leave garbage on the sidewalk, grouchy creatures will infest the bins
– counting should not stop at ten. It needs to go to twelve.
– a bath is not complete without a rubber ducky
– waiters have the most amazing memories & can get everything wrong without fear of being fired
Super Grover is the most awesome, yet useless superhero ever (and he is cute too!)
– Mr Hooper is not coming back 🙁

Thank you Mr. Henson.  Thank you all the actors, producers, writers, puppeteers, techies, and musicians that have brought Sesame Street to life for so many children for so long.

By the way – what the hell is Snuffleupagus anyway???

Facebook eyes off twitter

This comic was inspired by a blog post that landed in my feeds the other day, titled “Facebook Working on New Twitter Integration?“. [read original post here]   This immediately  brought to mind an image of a giant facebook creature eagerly eyeing off poor little twitter.
Hence, the comic you now see before you.

You can’t really blame facebook though. They are just trying to stay viable to the massive user base they have already built up.Continue reading Facebook eyes off twitter

The twitter bird in real life

The twitter bird intrigues me.

It has been chosen as the mascot for an extremly powerful micro-blogging system, mainly due to it being small, cute and fun. It implies communication and anticipation. Some say  it’s the perfect choice for Twitter.

Then I began to think about what it would be like if the twitter bird was an actual bird.

I think you will agree that if it was real, it would be very annoying.

Twitter Birds in Real Life This comic has been pretty popular, and I tried to get this printed onto a Threadless t-shirt. However, the votes were not high enough to get this to happen.So, forget that – I will just let you get the shirt directly from here.

Now everyone can easily purchase one and get stick it to Threadless at the same time!

Please also feel free to request any of my comics on a shirt, and I will be happy to make them available in the store.
