This Week in Facebook News

posted by on October 20 at 14:00 PM

A British man has been sentenced to life in prison because he killed his wife after she changed her Facebook status to “single.”

The day before the murder, he called her parents and complained about his wife’s Facebook entry which he said “made her look like a fool”, the court heard.

I’m really posting this because I have a Facebook etiquette question: Would it be creepy and weird if I joined the Facebook group for Slog fans?

Not at all! ...well, maybe a little.

But thanks for subtly alerting the rest of us that this group exists!

Facebook is only creepy if you're over 30.

You're creepy and weird anyhow so what have you got to lose?

Looks like Sam M. is a member of the group, so why not you too?

When I was at CrunchGear they required us to join the "fans of CrunchGear" Facebook group. So I say a precedent has been made. Do it!

I just joined. Eww.

Same here. I don't feel weird or creepy, but I think I need to wash my hands now...a lot.

The only thing sadder than spending hours trolling around on Slog, is joining a group of people dedicated to bragging about spending hours trolling around on Slog.

I bet they have parties where they group hug...

I always cringe a little when bands join their own fan groups on MySpace/Facebook/etc.

And I always grin when they join the inevitable "(their band) SUCKS" group.

Sounds like a slippery Slog slope, Paul. Next thing, you'll be tempted to join the Facebook group for the Facebook group for Slog fans.

I will not join Facebook until they let me have "Mister" instead of that horrible first name my mother gave me. Cunt.

don't be a whiney baby, mr. poe. make up an entirely new name, okay?

Posted by scary tyler moore | October 20, 2008 6:42 PM

I'm The Incredible Sulk, Facebook bitches! But you can call me "The."

And no, I don't feel like letting it go.

Sure, Paul, join the Facebook Slog group.

Posted by Greg | October 20, 2008 7:17 PM

Wow, apparently everyone joined the Facebook Slog group.
