i've been "added" to a "group" and now i get notifications every time someone posts to it etc
I got nothing else
I created my first ever group last week and it's bullshit. The page itself doesn't even show the information in a clear way, the main page is comments and you have to scour (correct word?) the page to find out the information about the group, grr. Hate when facebook change things - it's never good.
Really pissed me off that did, cos i don't want to remove myself from the group cos i might offend them, but... its a shit group.
although I thought you had to confirm your willingness to join first.
those are 'likes' these are groups, basically it makes a single wall for all people involved in a group
so basically if you're going to glastonbury with a group of people you can all chat away on that, it's pointless and people do it in mass like 'BRIGHTON' or 'WE LIKE CRUMPETS' and it gets abused for promotional uses, it's a pain in the arse.
you have no say whether or not you wan't to join.
I can sort of see it's purpose but as I say, morons tend to use it... like morons
It's meant to be for different groups of friends and things So you might have a 'work' group, or a'uni; group, and you can talk to all your work / uni friends in those groups.
I think anyway.
the sort of people who do these new type of groups will understand, they see Facebook as SRS BZNESS
they seem to have taken photos out of the application settings page so there is no way to stop tagged photos appearing on profile feeds, I used to not get the criticism facebook got for privacy because they give you so much control but nowadays they change things so often it really is hard work to keep on top of it all
