Facebook apps

Yesterday i left a comment on Andy Carvin’s blog questioning the general usefulness and the good taste of Facebook apps. Today i saw that one of the people in my network joined a group titled “F#@k off… I don’t want to be a pirate/vampire/werewolf/zombie” (here is the link, but you have to have a FB account to view it). I don’t really understand why people love giving their groups necessarily rude titles (probably because they can), but what important here is the fact that there are quite a lot of people annoyed by that phenomena. This group for once has over 20K members and i am sure there are others. On the one hand, it makes me feel better – even if i am missing something about this “communicating via werewolfing” phenomenon, at least i am not alone. On the other hand, the vast majority of people on FB are gladly adopting these things and they are definitely view it differently from me or from others in that group.
