25 things I don't care about

Claire Suddath, this is so spot on.

There's a new boring FaceBook application that encourages people to over-share even more redundant "facts" that we don't need to know about them. Apparently, 5 million people have posted this note in the last week. That's 125 million facts. 125 million useless facts.

No-one ever posts legit facts, like, "I deliberately shrunk my flatmate's fave sweater in the dryer cause she never picks up after herself."

No, they post shiny, PR "factoids" or otherwise manufactured quirky comments that they think make them sound witty, or funny, or clever, or cool.

If I wasn't such a FaceBook stalker, I would totally delete my account.
