A week or two ago, Matt was on Facebook. I believe he was playing a game. On top of the game there was an ad and it used my Facebook photo and said something along the lines of, “KRISTINE MUNROE-MAHONEY THINKS YOU’RE STUPID. Take the IQ test here to prove her wrong.”
Um, wtf? I thought this was a little disturbing that these Facebook apps are using my name and my picture to advertise another app while saying that I think someone is stupid.
What if someone reads it and thinks I did some Facebook game where I rated my friends and deemed some as stupid? What if a coworker or MY BOSS sees that ad?
Really stupid advertising on the part of these apps. They shouldn’t be allowed to use a user’s name and picture to advertise their app, and they certainly shouldn’t say that a user thinks another user is something bad!Filed under Uncategorized | Comments (2)

Oh, and P.S. I’m not a fan of Danny Cooksey on “Diff’rent Strokes.” He was a total Cousin Oliver. But on “Salute Your Shorts” he was quite awesome.Filed under nostalgia, videos | Comment (1)

I’ve been using Twitter lately. Part of me thinks it’s kind of stupid, but part of me enjoys it.
Well, that is, when it actually WORKS. It works about half the time when I try to use it. We’ve been using it at my part-time job to broadcast stuff such as coupons, and everything takes me quadruple the amount of time that it would if the site worked.
I wonder how long it will be before I lose patience and move on to another social networking tool. This reminds me of ICQ circa 1998 when it was down all the time. Everyone moved to AIM. Then in 2003, same thing happened with Friendster, and everyone moved to MySpace (and later, to Facebook)
As far as I can tell, Twitter has to make a choice…can they improve their service or are they going to quickly become passe as we move on to other Twitter-like social networking tools? How much time can we make for a service that doesn’t work a good portion of the time?Filed under internet | Comment (1)
