""I just want to log into Facebook.""


  

          

So this what happens when you're first in Google search results for "Facebook login." Instead of going to facebook.com, people apparently put in the search terms and, when confronted with a totally different interface, decided to leave comments.

It's hilarisad, really. Folk need to download them some RAM and chill.

a coworker of my wife sent an email to a bunch of people going on and on about a "blob" she reads online, and how she usually doesn't forward stuff like this, but everyone needs to start reading this "blob".

Aww! Boo!

If the server admins wanted to be dicks, they have umpteen number of correct Facebook logins and email addresses at their disposal from "login" attempts...

We're at a point where people think of Google as their Internet. It's the new AOL. If the order of search results for facebook changes then millions of people are lost.

Sad times.

the number of people who do the same with yahoo or whatever search bar they have is pretty high too, it's not a "google is my internet" thing

it's a "I have no idea what the internet is" thing

In response to Reply # 10


  

          

I was using AOL's search (which at the time was limited to AOL sites only!)
to try and find porn. the only thing my search terms brought up was
an AOL page about relationships on some "10 things you should never
tell your girlfriend"

it took me a few days to figure things out. I think it was only because
I got redirected to a .com page, saw an ad for one, or maybe someone
posted a link in an AOL chat room

they ALWAYS go to google and search for what they want. Case in point, going to google and searching "facebook" rather than typing in www.facebook.com in the URL bar.

A 50 year old lady who wrote:

"85.for those of you that want to get in face book now just go to Bing..put in face book and search (or it will pop up) hit on face book login and it takes you to your password page...i did it....
if this ever gets back to normal I will use the address bar from now on....."


It was her third comment/rant about facebook's login. By the
time we get to #85, she seems quite proud of herself for
having "solved" the problem by using Bing instead of Google.
I would not be surprised if this lady felt like her solution
must have been similar to how the technicians fix internet
problems. She must have thought she was very, very smart.

Something about how idiocy piqued my interest though. So, I
clicked her facebook linked photo from the comment box and
saw that she's a facebook member of the Republican Governors
Association and the Sarah Palin pages. In fact, and far too
ironically, he most recent wall post is a video link regarding
Sarah Palin with her editorial caption, "GO SARAH ! There is only one reason why they poke "fun" at you....they are afraid of you !"

Yeah, I agree, I AM afraid of Palin, Republicans and other fucktard
morons who spend hours on the computer without having a clue about
what they are using. Researching some of these people reveals a
lot about American society and its education system.
