Get Lost Facebook and Twitter!

Friggin’ social networks!

I have social-anxiety disorder, so I have NO interest in any kind of social garbage, yet Facebook constantly emails me with notices about this and that social crap. It keeps telling me that I may know this or that person even though I have yet to know even a single one of its suggestions (the worst and stupidest thing is when you create a new account with absolutely no information in it and Facebook—and Twitter—immediately start to make presumptuous suggestions about who they think you might know or like).

How can I tell Facebook to piss the hell off and leave me the hell alone?

No option to decline friend requests anymore? Only Yes and Not Now? What the hell is that, forcing people to be “friends”?

Twitter is no better, constantly emailing me to check out feeds of people I have nothing to do with nor any interest in.

Both networks have an option to disable that specific notification at the bottom of the emails, but this means two things:

  • Opting out of the notification only affects that specific type of notification and has no effect on others, so you will continue to receive those (“legitimate” spammers use this sort of trick by letting you unsubscribe from that specific message which means nothing for other, future messages)
  • They automatically opt you in for everything and force you to manually look through the endless list of notifications and manually opt out of anything/everything instead of opting you into only the most important things automatically and letting you choose to add more notifications like a proper site should

Stupid social networks; SHUT UP and behave!
