I'm starting to get very annoyed with Facebook--particularly the applications. I understand they're made by third parties, but they violate Facebook rules seemingly without consequences.

So far, there's one application that enables you to track who's been looking at your profile (Facebook promises anonymity when you search), plus some applications automatically forward junk to everyone on your friends list. Yesterday, someone sent me a disgusting video of a guy on a scooter getting run over by a car. It was so horrendous I deleted the entire Fun Wall application so I never get another one again. The result? Everyone on my friends list now has the video on their Fun Walls as if I forwarded the thing.

I've tried writing to the powers that be 3 times, but to no avail. Anyone else finding things fishy?

I've deleted most applications except for a handful of "essential" ones.

I got that one from you. But it's a blank funwall post, no image, video or flash at all. It's probably a bug on the application side which caused that, or your long lost evil twin did that before you deleted it.

Fishy? Umm... I think I might have mentioned to you about this one. Last year, my friend's account got suspended after he sent a message (via inbox, not a wall post) about it to his friends. His account was reinstated after that though. Not sure what actually happened.

i like facebook but the problem is that i have lots of people that have invitied me to be a friend and i cant remember who they are! ( they probably cant remember a hell of a lot about me apart from a name! u met so many people travelling and although they were an essential part of yr trip and experience how many of them can u realistically keep in touch with?
