All praise ClickHole

I hate seeing every other link shared on Facebook with something stupid.

Today, I saw a link shared with this headline:

Hands down… this is my absolute favorite talent show performance OF ALL…

Yo Facebook, Ban Links With Fake Video Play Buttons

Samuel:

Well, the problem isn’t the misleading images. The problem is that you are clicking links to stupid things. Look at the first few examples. None of those grab my attention. None of that should be interesting. It’s dumb.

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

Oh, cute cat video? Let me watch that for a second in the News Feed. Click the play button. NOPE. It was a lie. Just a static image of a play button designed to dupe me into clicking out to some crappy website. Feed reading, interrupted. User experience, injured. Likelihood I’ll click legitimate videos in the future, diminished. Facebook. Seriously. This BS needs to stop.

I get it. Sites are trying to convey they have video content to share, so they stick a fake play button on the link preview thumbnail image. But what they really want is my ad views, and they’re willing to trick me to get them.

CAT COMMERCIAL

That play button is fake. ARRRGGGHH!

They could have put “Watch:” or “[Video]” in their link’s headline, but then I’d get to make the choice if I wanted to click away from Facebook to watch. Instead, they just make Facebook…

KTVU is clowning around too much and they got bit hard for it

KTVU had the names of the pilots of the Asiana plane crash. The only problem with that is that these weren’t the real names.

FYI, I have always hated KTVU. Growing up in the Bay, I always thought they were the worst out of the four major local stations. They were boring, had no enthusiasm and really were uninformed all the way around. I thought Dennis Richmond was one of the worst and boring anchors ever. And the sports team there really didn’t know anything about sports.

With that said, we have the above video. Nobody fact checks. Nobody reads anything out loud and wonders if that sounded right. And what made it worse is that the order it was read was the chronological order of the events that happened during the flight. “Sum Ting Wong,” “Wi Tu Lo,” “Ho Lee Fuk” and “Bang Ding Ow” should be read as this:

And I feel fine: Mayans and your 12/21/12

I am glad this is a joke to everyone because seriously, who really believes this is real? I don’t even know the origin or what it’s about. It doesn’t matter to me.

Are we really believing this?

Now, more R.E.M.!

Another Facebook hoax and people are just so gullible

So America’s youth don’t know who Paul McCartney is and won’t use Google to find out

Stupid kids.

Here are a series of tweets during last night’s Grammy Awards. A shame from these dumb teenagers.

McCartney gave two fantastic performances last night, including the final act which I think was beautiful. Stupid teenagers. Use Google to find out who he is before tweeting like a clown.

Do you know who Osama bin Laden is? I’m pretty sure every American that can read a newspaper knows who he is.

But according to this, there were some teenagers who don’t know who he is.

Japan earthquake devastation brings out the most racist, ignorant people on Facebook

Over the weekend, a friend pointed out to me that there wasn’t as much support for Japan as I had initially thought. My friends on Facebook all poured out their support for the people affected by the earthquake. However, not the rest of the country felt that way.

Through a search of the term “Pearl Harbor” on American Facebook status updates after the earthquake struck, we found out that there are a lot of ignorant, racist folks out there. These people think that Japan deserved what they got because of “karma” for Pearl Harbor.

I can’t even go into detail how terrible that idea is. Both incidents have nothing to do with each other. And more importantly, whenever people die, it’s never something to be celebrated.
