Facebook says mobile users will hurt their ad revenues the same day they announce a Facebook App Store.
Why an App Store when Facebook admits that the mobile experience is becoming the default experience for users (a MOBILE experience that is decidedly not Facebook friendly)? Because once a dumbass Facebook user signs up for an app, that app has access to their information AND every one of their friends. So screw the user experience, let’s focus on sharing your information and profit! It’s called digital sharecropping and as long as the user feels the good outweighs the bad users will ignore the downside. Once Facebook goes public and they can’t hide the devious shit they pull people will get a clue, then it will be gameover. Facebook is a game changer all right, a game changer for privacy.
Facebook is the AOL of 2012. It’s trying to be the Internet, but it will fail and it will fail spectacularly. Apple and Google have App Stores. Facebook, you are too late and you suck at life. Fuck off with your half hearted attempt at a Facebook App Store so you can snoop on our friends and steal our information.
The Facebook IPO will be laughable. Either as a DOA basket case of a stock or as the straw that breaks the global economy back.
Scared yet? You should be. Oh, you should be.
This is how I feel about Facebook.
