"14 People On Facebook Who Need To Shut Up" Buzzfeed Video Nails The Social Media Experience
Despite the fact that Facebook is the one social network in which (theoretically) all the people you interact with are people you know in real life, somehow it also manages to be just about the most insufferable social network out there. Or maybe it's because of all the people you know — specifically, the kind featured in Buzzfeed's "14 People on Facebook Who Need To Shut Up." You all know you are friends with these people.
The thing about Facebook is the company has done all sorts of things over the years to disapprove of. They made "Weight Loss" a life event. They introduced a satire tag to protect us all from Onion articles. They spent a significant amount of time enforcing bans against photos that show women's nipples while protecting pages dedicated to rape jokes and misogynistic humor. And then of course there was that time they boasted about experimenting on us.
And yet in spite of all that, the thing that really makes or breaks your Facebook experience is always going to be the people you're friends with. So hopefully your Facebook friends are way better than all the people who populate this vid. But no matter who you are, you at the very least know one of these people. I guarantee it.
