I honestly do not understand how Facebook has grown to be what it is. I’m good with tech stuff in general, but I cannot figure out how Facebook works to save my life. I mean, what the hell is my Facebook Wall anyway? It’s not really a blog, because all kinds of stuff keeps showing up on it I did not post. And where does all that stuff come from anyway? I thought it was supposed to be MY wall. How do other people post to it? It’s not really a message board, I don’t think. I think you’re supposed to be able to reply to stuff, but for the life of me I don’t know how. I never can tell where something I write is going to end up. Will it post to my wall, to my friend’s wall, or to the ether? It feels very random. Is what I am writing a post, a comment, a reply, etc? I never know how Facebook will treat what I am writing.
Then, a friend of mine texted me a screen capture from his phone of a Jeep for sale on the Facebook Marketplace. I spent hours trying to find that Jeep. The Facebook Marketplace is the most retarded and unsearchable site I’ve ever tried to use. I can’t find anything on it. I can’t even find the marketplace at all on my computer. Tonight I decided to search for a motorcycle. I got nothing for my hour of just trying to find the marketplace, never mind anything on the marketplace. I never found the Marketplace itself. Google sent me to http://www.facebook.com/fbmarketplace. From there I entered the model of bike I want and the results were not Marketplace ads. All of the results were basic Facebook pages, or posts, or blogs, or comments, or whatever the hell they are, but not For Sale ads. It is not a marketplace if no commerce is being conducted.
Go to hell Facebook. You’re retarded.
