Facebook 15 second auto-play ads
« on: August 03, 2013, 02:34:52 PM »
I was on Facebook just to connect with family members (and because of Words with Friends and Galaxy Legion)

The first day this happens is the day I say goodbye to my friends on there. :(

Using Facebook is about to get a lot more annoying

YouTube has been doing this for a long time, but they turn the audio off. There's nothing worse than pumped up obnoxious volume suddenly blaring.

Coincidentally, yesterday I was thinking about creating a "World's most annoying web page" and blaring audio was a cornerstone of my imagined design.

yeah... but I can use adblock on youtube.  On facebook, I've been dealing with ads because of Words with Friends, that keeps changing to get around my custom adblock rules and make the game unusable.

Eh.. I spend too much time on those stupid games anyway...  :-[

I abandoned FB games a very long time ago.

The only FB games that I've played since were ones that I actually worked on. Kind of nice to get paid for playing games as opposed to paying to play them. ;D
