    Constantly on my newsfeed I have info about friends liking/sharing things like statuses, pics and vids from random people who have like "subcribers"... I clicked on a couple and these guys... wow... they just keep uploading pics of themselves and talk about being "facebook famous"... reminds me so much of myspace... does anyone else find this really sad? I thought facebook was to stay in touch with friends and keep people you know updated.


    The most annoying thing is I don't know how to get this out of my newsfeed... I don't care about what half the people on my facebook are doing at every minute of every day (but my god they will tell me anyway)... I care even less about what a stranger is doing.

    I agree, although why don't you just delete facebook then?

    You can remove then from your newsfeed but you have to go to their profile and unselect the newsfeed updates from them

    Every social network has people like that, you can't escape them. Bebo fell into decline by it's love system because it became a competition between the Camwhores and now it's overun by the lingering scenequeens who still hold onto their dead empires.

    Facebook is designed to avoid that but it still has a like system, so naturally the same phenomena occurs. So long as people post things for approval there won't be an end to that cycle.
