Facebook Apps That Save Your Social Life

If you’re reading this blog, odds are you can remember a time before Facebook. Now, however, the social networking site is part of the daily routine, which goes something like: wake up, brush teeth, check Facebook. That said, it’s impossible to have such a close relationship without a few bumps in the road (i.e. getting hacked, dealing with over-sharers, and unknowingly becoming a stalker). Here, Facebook apps that will make social networking a little bit easier on your sanity:

Go infant-free. It’s hard to browse Facebook without being bombarded by babies. Users won’t have that problem anymore, thanks to a new Web tool called Unbaby.me, which replaces the baby pictures on Facebook feeds with things that people prefer to see, like photos of cats, sunsets and (most importantly) bacon.

Don’t get hijacked. Don’t click on it, don’t click on it! Oops, you clicked on it. MyPageKeeper scans and monitors all content posted on your wall and news feed to prevent bugs from infesting your profile and hacking into your friends’ pages.

Stop being creepy. Resist the urge to click on your new crush’s favorite band fan page or his fantasy football profile. Why? Because Facebook added a “read receipt” feature, which informs the post author and other Group visitors who has viewed each post. Hover over an icon on the post and a list will appear with the names of everyone who has viewed it (yours included).

an airplane.

Just found the worst page in the entire dictionary. What I saw was disgraceful, disgusting, dishonest, and disingenuous.
