    Faceache has been naff for ages

    Facebook has been naff for ages! Login problems, chat issues, ajax errors. Dunno what they're up to but they've knacked what was a pretty good service.

    I couldn't help but note...

    ...the irony of downrightnow allowing you to share the status of various web2.0 sites via the wonders of web2.0, as well as their twitter feed.

    Presumably this is because it follows the Web 2.0 fluffery. If enough of the other things it monitors are in full on pear-shaped mode for enough time*, it has to accept that this is the will of the hive mind and shit itself in sympathy.

    WTF?

    you get what you pay for

    Facebook has proved really useful, hence its current problems are more noticable. But it's free at the point of use, and generally whatever is free is worth what you pay for it. How many of the 300 million profiled users would pay a sub? Not many. Not me.
