I am not on Facebook. I'm not going to be on Facebook. When a FPP consists of a single link to a Facebook page, it's not much use to me, since FB blocks half the page with a sign-up popup. Maybe posters could warn us private persons that we'd be wasting our time clicking on the link? Thanks.

Metafilter mentioned (and linked) at Fast Company

"Why Academics Are Incensed By Facebook's Emotion-Manipulating Social Experiment" by Chris Gayomali
Comments on Metafilter filled a spectrum ranging from "meh" to furious: "I don't remember volunteering to participate in this. If I had tried this in graduate school, the institutional review board would have crapped bricks."

The Heat Is On

So thanks to this MeTa I found (and "Liked", of course) the MetaFilter Facebook page. Upon reading said page, however, one of the terms from the "Related Searches" section stood out: "metafilter convection oven". I am very curious to find out now why this is apparently a popular enough search to show up on the Facebook page. Is this merely a glitch on Facebook's end or is there something about ovens that I really should know and y'all can tell me about? What am I missing out on here?

Facebook's Edit feature looks mighty perty; can I has edit comments plox?

Facebook has finished its roll-out of an edit feature for comments on wall posts/comments. If you have a Facebook account, I'd ask you to take a look at it. I think it works and would like to discuss why it could work on MetaFilter. [more inside]

Locked Out... ... and erased from the Internet!

Can I get a witness?

The offending link is, thankfully, gone, but I'd like a clarifying ruling from the mods on the policy of linking to user's private facebook (or G+, or what have you) discussions about other users, if that's not too much trouble. [more inside]

Thousands of moderators

Facebook has an open position for a Questions Community Manager. The text itself is pretty fascinating with superlatives like"anything you can dream up", "thousands of moderators" and "the full resources of Facebook at your disposal". I obviously thought about AskMe and Jessamyn, and she agreed it was an interesting Meta post. Knowing that communities start from the ground up, I am especially interested in thoughts about how such a gigantic operation can be handled, if it can at all. [more inside]

MeFi Failbook WIN

A six year old MeFi thread (one comment in particular) was mentioned in a Failbook entry. I think that was the last place I'd expected to see a MeFi reference.

MeFi / Facebook cross polination

As a traffic/stats nerd, I posted the P!=NP story today to my Facebook wall. That got me wondering, is a significant/noticeable amount of traffic on the Blue from non-member FB referenced visitors? [more inside]

save the facebook luddites

Minor pony/bug relating to profile-page links to facebook. I'm on facebook but I don't have one of those fancy-dancy no-longer-so-new fb-specific usernames; my fb page is still index.php?profile=number. If I enter that on my user page as my facebook "name", the link doesn't work—the punctuation is encoded.

Swedish meetups?

Has there ever been a meetup in Sweden? Are there enough of us to warrent a meet up or will the three of us just feel awkward? Maybe a Scandinavian combo? Malmö would be close enough for Danes to bridge, and for Norwegians to ski? (I keed)

Biblio is giving away pieces of flair!

I made you all some MetaFilter flair for Facebook. I admit to loving my shiny little flair buttons, and I was sad to see there weren't any MeFi ones to put next on my corkboard. So I made 3. They aren't works of art, but I think you'll like them. Just search for "MetaFilter" in the Pieces of Flair app. Enjoy!
