@cwebber This is a rather well-done and yet informative parody. I love it.

@faoluin @cwebber It's made by someone on here, but of course I didn't bookmark their toot about it and now I can't find it because search sucks.

Anyway, yeah it's pretty excellent ^_^

@cwebber

The whole page is chuckleworthy and I like the less tongue-in-cheek summary they have at the bottom countering FB's web misinformation, after all the piss-take:

"We don't need to keep living inside screens — especially ones controlled by Mark. We don't need to accept Facebook's domination of the digital world.

There is already an open, global social network that no single company controls, called the Web. Anyone can create a "profile" on it, and associate with whomever they want. It has no ads, algorithms, or emotional manipulation.

Start a site on Neocities, share photos on Pixelfed, or write your thoughts on Write.as — to name a few.

Facebook is still bad, and it will be regardless of what they call themselves. It's time to realize we don't need them, and we can build a healthier, more human "social network" without them."

@seasharp @cwebber As an aside, if we're going to keep _that_ “no single company controls” true, then avoiding getting eaten too hard by Chrome may be a priority from another angle. … among many other angles. Internet freedom is a multifarious thing. 😵

@cwebber 😆

Actually, it’s time for something else

Comedy gold.

@cwebber That website actually pings F*cebook servers.

The video and some embedded images are directly from facebook.com, that's all

@cwebber shockingly, I tried to sneak it on to Bookface and it magically got deleted in about a nanosecond. What was I thinking?? I do like this one: "We’re already developing exciting new technologies that will help us watch people as they connect and explore whatever outrages them."
