‘how hetero’ is your Facebook?

November 26, 2009

Facebook users can now check to see “how hetero” the pictures they have posted on the popular social networking site are, thanks to a new web application launched by the organizers of an annual celebration of gay culture in Stockholm.

Stockholm Pride president Claes Nyberg said he sees the “How Hetero” campaign as a “fun and interactive way to put Stockholm Pride on the world map” and boost the profile of the Swedish capital as festival arrangers look to submit their bid to host the World Pride festival in 2014.

Facebook…. it’s like watching soaps at work!

Interesting piece on Salon.com depicting how nowadays people are broadcasting their personal dramas online before a bewildered friends’s audience.

Between people who whine about their dog/cat, the little jimmy learning to shit on the potty, not to mention the slutty friend who screws a different guy every night and by the way, keep you in touch with all the details you certainly dont want to hear about while sipping your coffee.A constant soap opera on the feed posted by people whom are looking for a social connection,support as they  don’t know anymore how to cultivate real friendships.I’m a fairly private person and the saying “you don’t put your business in the street” definitely applies to me.I am amazed at how many people post the most intimate details of their lives on Facebook. I would die of embarrassment if the whole world knew the details about various disagreements and fights I had with friends and family members, not to mention my sexual exploits.It’s completely trashy and so low class.
