Attention fans!! Please read! On Facebook, it seems, liking shit just isn’t enough.

So yeah….

Remember how, a few years ago, Facebook talked you into “liking” things? And pretty soon, you were just clicking “like” on stuff to tell your friends, “Hey, man! I really ‘like’ The Origami Penises! They’re very experimental!”

Well, if you’ve been missing the folded shapes of penises lately, it’s because Facebook decided that it knows better than you do what you actually want to read. That’s why they came up with the “News Feed” and the “Most Recent Feed.” Ignoring the semantics of “News” being somehow not as recent as “most recent,” the real reason for this whole change was to make Page owners pay money for you to see the content you originally said you wanted.

But there has been plenty of blow-back to that scenario: creating a need, then filling it with a paid option. And the new solution is to add things you like to your “Interests List.”

Fucking redundant. Thanks for making shit difficult, Facebook.

Ok… so let’s also ignore the semantic problems with “liking” something somehow not proving that you’re “interested” in it. Just do me a big-ass solid, if you could, and also add my page to your “Interests List.” I’ll be writing you in a few months to also add me to your “No fucking shit, Facebook, I fucking asked for this content, you douchebags” list. Stand by…
