The siteworld & Facebook
Posted on 05.14.2017 • 5 comments.
Hello there visitors, it’s been a while.
This is gonna be a kind of rant—I’m not really mad, more like amusedly annoyed—spurred by something that happened on Skyrose….but let’s start from the beginning.
Skyrose has gotten a few beloved siblings recently but, through the years the site has been opened, the rejected applications have been way more than the accepted ones….and that’s because of Facebook, or my lack thereof: to better explain, I’ve often gotten affiliation requests by site owners who pedaled back (or even criticized and mocked me) on that request when they heard I was not nor I planned to ever go on Facebook; when I told them we could still keep in touch and interact via comments and cbox, they said I should join Facebook otherwise we couldn’t become affies….to which I replied with a (more or less, depending on the person) polite fu*k you, rejecting their application.
Did they really expect me to join Facebook—my most disliked, to not say hated, social ever—just to become affiliate with them? They apparently did….as they apparently seem to think their site was just an extension of Fb (seen how they sent you over to the social for pretty much everything); sorry, but I don’t work that way. I do not, nor will I ever, join Facebook and my site can function even without any social link on it.
Sorry for what turned out to be an actual rant, but someone else today asked me that and I got reeeaally annoyed; see you all on next entry.
Take care guys, and have a wonderful week.
