Has anybody noticed the vast amounts of advertising for new celebrity diets; for example, "how the olsens got thin" We already know how one of them got thin... :(
wtf. It's actually making me not want to go on facebook where I already spend most of my time...

I am finding MySpace worse at the moment...

I can barely stand to log into MySpace anymore...and they are ridiculous!

I wish there was a way to make them go away....

:) I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way!

I am the only person left on the planet without a Facebook, MySpace or blog/journal page of some sort I think/feel sometimes.

Though I think I just don't know what the hell there is to say about me to put on one for the most part. :)

Even without facebook, I get ads for diet pills. They´re just trashed together with the Viagra ads.

Yesterday I was on Facebook and looking at this one group which writes reviews about treatment centers [and I was reading the Homewood thread] and wouldn't you know...to my right there was a picture of a scale and an add about a diet that apparently would help me lose 20lbs quickly!

How ridiculous/ironic, right? ughh.

Facebook sold out.

They now peddle an endless stream of advertisements meant to trigger your insecurities to purchase crap.

LOL. Use it a lot?

I think most social networks are tools for advertising... and thus become cesspools of negative propaganda designed to make us feel bad about ourselves. Would love to be able to post links to social networks that are NOT like that. (Aside from here... which is fun and all but it's not quite like Facebook.)
