Vision? What vision? That all aspects of everyone's lives should be online so that it can all be sold for billions of dollars? That personal privacy is a thing of the past? No thank you. I suppose it is a cool company if they don't have to create much to make so much money.

the age of confession !

if you get a PM on sufu, do you get an email telling you? I PMd a guy about an item he's selling, but he hasn't been on in a few weeks it seems and I'm wondering if he won't even know until he logs back in.

There's probably some settings to change it, but I do get emails from sufu when someone PMs me.

lol "personal privacy is a thing of the past." Post what you don't mind being public on Facebook. Keep the rest offline. Nothing online is "private." Facebook improves my life in enough ways that I don't really care about being served ads. It's easy enough to ignore them if I'm not interested, and sometimes I see ads that are actually interesting to me (because they are so targeted). Better than banner ads all over every other site.

With regards to Facebook vs. newsletters, Facebook is more lucrative. Newsletters have pretty abysmal open rates -- under 15%, generally -- and you can only send them like once a month if you don't want to piss people off. People are already spending like eight hours a month on FB anyway, so you definitely want to hit them on there. There's also a much larger capacity for conversation. Newsletters are sort of a one way thing.

lol if you don't have multiple online personas exclusively populated by wildly fictional information, to a degree of detail and lack of real world awareness far beyond a traditional multiple personality disorder diagnosis, sustained to a point where even blood family has forgotten or is unaware of your original identity

That's apparently the reality. But, Facebook does a poor job of informing its users of this. The idea of information on a password-protected account being shared only with friends is a complete fallacy.

Zuckergerg himself has essentially said that privacy is no longer a social norm. He's also admitted that FB made a "bunch of mistakes" regarding privacy controls. They've already been under scrutiny from the FTC.

Anyway, sorry for the soapbox rant on FB. My original comment was out of annoyance that FB is the main (only?) mode of communication for some of the clothing shops that I like. I might get a newsletter about a giveaway, but I have to join FB and 'like' them in order to participate.

I think it's somehow related to this phenomenon:

Yeah.

Though half the girls I've been with hate how I dress.

my girlfriend is pretty into clothes, which is nice, but she wishes i dressed more like a japanese EG lookbook model.

the not nice part is that our 2 bedroom apartment has one bedroom that's her closet and she still doesn't have enough space for clothes. all her clothing is thrifted though. makes me sad that men's stuff is impossible to find in thrift stores, would save so much $.
post #58617 of 99919
your a good candidate for the EG look, though
