by Emmet Purcell

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Despite boasting over one billion worldwide users, Facebook has inevitably transformed from being a well-loved social outlet for friends and family to an ego-centric, duck pose-laden, virtual farming-centric nightmare. Rather than wag a disapproving finger at the website itself, writer Emmet Purcell catalogs the 99 reasons why - despite our best efforts to leave - Facebook has become a part of our social identity, for good or ill. OK, mostly ill. Across nine humorous chapters, the worst Facebook offenders - from folks who design pages for their cats or 'Poke' you incessantly - are named and shamed. Whether you love, hate, or love to hate the social network, 99 Reasons Everyone Hates Facebook will you have nodding and cringing in equal measure.
