The Beginning of the End of Facebook

Let me first preface this by saying: I've been a long supporter/dependent of Facebook. Ever since the second I got my college e-mail address I haven't been separated from it for more than 4 days and I usually check it more than 5 times a day.

With that being said, I'm gonna go ahead and put it out there that I think Facebook has seen its glory days and may become the new MySpace.

Harsh. I know. But hear me out.

A couple of years ago when Facebook started to allow high schoolers into what was once an exclusive college kids club, I just tried to pretend it wasn't happening. And that worked, for a little bit until I finally just accepted it because at the time, most of my friends were still in high school anyway.

Then a year or so after that when Facebook introduced the "News Feed" (all broken up couples' worst nightmare) I looked the other way, allowing it to happen because it was out of my control. But now, with the introduction of all these crappy third party "applications" it's hard for me to take Facebook seriously at all. Do we really NEED to be able to cast Harry Potter spells at each other via Facebook? Do you really care to see my mood visually portrayed by a giant smiley face? The answer to most of the questions these applications pose us is "no."

Facebook used to be the calm, almost somewhat professional-looking place you could go to after being on MySpace and not feel dirty. But now, I can't click on a profile without seeing 200 of their movie reviews, every song they've listened to in the past month, and a giant fortune cookie predicting the "future."

I mean, I guess I'll just have to go with the "Whatever Floats Your Boat" theory on this one..

But for now, I'm happy, and proud to be Facebook Application Free!

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
