Have you heard of the Filter Bubble? It's when Google (yes they do it) or Facebook (they filter about 80% of what you see) and even Twitter (started "filtering by…
Facebook's 12 deadly sins, as featured on Slideshare's Design channel.
o it costs about $20 to set up an initial facebook advertising account. And from there you can use their tool to build your own failing campaign. It's nice how they give you all these really cool metrics about views vs. clicks. And make sure you set it up so you only pay for clicks. Something like 0.03 per click will do you for a long time.
Seriously it could be a lot easier to add a friend on facebook. And the friendfinder app, well... that's next on the list.
ure, you can tell me that one is a logo an the other a type treatment. Perhaps the Facebook logo needs a redo so we can bring this whole thing back into sync. Perhaps I'm making much ado about nothing. // But I sure don't like the way it looks with it BOTH ways. And what about FaceBook?
This one is a time killer. For some reason facebook cannot remember how I like to upload my photos. It suggests the "Simple Uploader" everytime, while the Flash-based uploader is loading. I click the link EVERYTIME. And then I use the Simple Uploader to go about my business. Well, it's a simple PREFERENCE. Can't facebook set the preference, set a cookie, set something, so the Simple Uploader loads everytime? Wordpress does it.
I'd be interested to hear what the user-interface group for facebook says about what the top goal of their users on facebook is? Aside from simplifying the confusing masthead navigation, facebook would do well to ID the main user function and then allow their design and feature upgrades to flow from that focus.
So you click and you click and you tell them why you don't like certain ads, and why then do they show up at your next visit? The same exact ad? Is the Facebook Ad Targeting System broken, or is it like an idiot system, the more you click and the more you reason why the less it does, meaning it does nothing.
I thought I'd start a series of pop quizes to see what YOU know about facebook. The idea is easy. I'll pose a question and a visual, you tell me what click you would make first. I have to tell you, this choice confronts be 10 - 15 times a day (perhaps I'm one of the narcissists that continuously publish on facebook?) and I still don't have a logical reason to guide my choice. So here it is, my #1 facebook gripe. If it's all about "friends" and "friending" then perhaps the logic (or clickpath) behind finding your friends should be easier to follow.
