I was tempted to use the power of social networking to promote the Save
Pentney website, so I dipped my toes in the Facebook waters.

Good god. That experience is enough to put me off social networking sites
for life.

It's the slowest, most cluttered and confused, non-intuitive, unfriendly,
script-heavy piece of shit I've ever experienced in my life.

We spend all day every day trying to make our websites accessible and easy
to use, because we niavely assume that's what our site visitors want and
Yet an abominable site like Facebook manages to become one of the most
successful online phenomenonemonenomenon of the last 5 years.

I just don't get it.
Why do people like it so much?
Do people actually enjoy being buggered about by an awkward and difficult to
use website?

I notice a lot of mobile phone companies are offering Facebook on their
handsets as an incentive to sell to younger people.
I can't even begin to imagine how difficult Facebook would be to navigate on
a mobile phone.


Okay, rant over....
