I wrote this post in Dec 2007, it was not published, this was due to a more comical explanation on face book formed on the opinions of 'Jay' a Canadian lady, her version was published instead of this one.
I will apologise for any affront this may cause to my dear relatives and friends who I love and respect, and are urging me to get on to this face book thingy, and so no further explanation will be forthcoming for security reasons.
Face book status updates 'is' no more.
Face book, the social-networking site beloved of twenty- and thirty somethings, has caved into user pressure and announced it is removing the mandatory "is" from member's status updates.
Changing status: Face book users will now no longer be restricted in their profile status
Status updates are one of the most popular features on the site, allowing users to inform other people in their social network what they are doing at that moment. For instance: "Mary is: writing an article about Face book".
However, because the word "is" is included as standard in all status updates, users are forced to either get creative with their status alerts or indulge in very grammatically incorrect sentences (Mary is: likes to bonk).
But according to the Face book fan site allfacebook. a blog wankers guide to greater wanking, Face book has told developers of third-party applications for the site that new verbs can be added to Face book status updates in future.
It is not yet clear when the change will take effect, but it's sure to be massively popular with Face book users. Most members regularly update their status throughout the day, and a Face book group set up on the site to campaign for the dropping of the mandatory "is" has more than 165,000 members. The word member conjures up other meanings of the word such as the penis is sometimes referred to as one's member, another connotation is 'Of parliament' - another bunch of intrusive pricks. so we can safely assume F B users are a complete bunch of dickheads.
It seems that Face book fans will still have to write in the third-person for a while longer, though, as there currently appear to be no plans to change this element of the status updates.
This is great news for the ghouls into Face book, whose sole reasons for being exposed, are influenced by the sexual gratification intake-those desperately seeking affection from some vague horny creation-wank wank.
The need to spew is brought about by the knowledge that 87 percent of Face book users are female and the most priceless info is the impressive figure of 71 percent for the number of lesbian bloggers. That being the case for Face book , could clear the way for 'ARSE BOOK to hit the blogs. Kin ell "What next"?....VEST. archives, 2007/11/21. draft only.
