I left facebook quiet some time ago, because i felt abused. too much spam and a lot of obviosly wanted security issues.
so i moved on to g+, an identical service, but, as i felt, more intelligent and user centered.

Now lets get it to a more 3rd person view:
the userexperience (UX) is a kind of feeling. i felt abused by facebook and i felt better at google. feelings for an internet service. wierd, isn't it?

Why is it that we have feelings for programs, games, cellphones, operating systems, computers, social networks?
my first guess is that we share our feelings with the programs. We feel happy when we reach a certain point in a RPG, when linux is operating the first time in our life and we feel its uniquness (1994). Our brain combines feelings we have with the programs we use and stores them. (other examples in my life:
the first time i've seen the blue C64 screen when i was 10, the first usable selfwritten programm, etc,) every time i use my c64, i feel like i am 10 again...
This is known for some time now, longer than the existance of any facehooker. i really need to read some books on this topic ( http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1015549 )

With social media we step a littler further. We share our life and build up the network we use. we let it grow with our life. so our brain and the saved feelings are being extended to the internet. And I really think this is why so many people are addicted by facebook, twitter, WoW, etc. All the photos, posts, videos are a mirror of our feelings.

Why do I bother?
hehe, simple ... my feelings got hurt by google :'( oooohhhhhhh. no honestly: google also fucks me up.
Google is not the nice guy you might see. google is very ruthless in reaching it goals. the "always act good" thing will not work for company which is traded on the stock exchange market. lately google produces 'interesting articles' in g+ concerning the german copyright law (leisungsschutzrecht #lsr --- go google :D ). and as you expect only with their opinion, and very frequently. sad. google abuses its service. here is an example. misuse of, recall above - "my brain".

I#m sick of being a traded good of facebook, and i am really not willing to be a googlejunge, waving the flag for a monster

in the end its just computer prgs. nothing you should spend feelings on. go back to RL! have feelings with real people. please move on, there is nothing special to see!
