Facebook is a powerful website for social networking (which is another term for “waste a lot of time.”) But even with its numerous features and applications (which is another term for “viruses”), there is a lot of room for improvement. Having been a user of Facebook for many years, I’ve come up with a list of four features that I’d like to see added.
- Block Fucking Stupid Applications: When Facebook began introducing applications it was both wonderful and frustrating. Let’s face it: we’ve all been bitten by zombies on Facebook at least once as well as seen some of our friend’s Facebook pages literally littered with trashy applications. Word to the wise: we don’t care which Disney character we are anymore. That’s sooo LiveJournal. The “Block Fucking Stupid Applications” feature would do just that, automatically block all fucking stupid Facebook applications.
- The ability to Hate status updates: When people post status updates you have the option to “Like” them. But sometimes I don’t like them. Sometimes I hate them. And I want the power to tell everyone that I hate them.
- I think I’m Always Busy That Day: One of Facebook’s best and most abused features is the ability to create and invite people to events. Most of the time when I select “No” for an event I’m thinking “No, and I’ll never attend an event hosted by this person, ever,” and I know I’m not the only one. Half of the time I don’t even know what the event means. Clicking this new and improved fourth button would show you as not attending the event and auto-decline future event invitation from the person who invited you.
- People You May Not Want to Know: This feature is without a doubt the feature that I crave the most. Facebook already has a “People You May Know” feature. This feature would display the exact opposite results by showing you which friends you interact with the least on Facebook. Ideally, it would also tell you why it’s suggesting you shouldn’t know them.
What do you think of these features? Would you use them? Are there any other features you wish existed but don’t?
