Facebook and Me

Facebook and Me

My overall experience with facebook has been negative. Like many people these days, I decided it is best to not have a facebook profile. Well technically I do have one. OK, I have two of them, and both are deactivated. One is my regular account and the other is my developer account that I reactivate every time I need to perform dev work with their API.

There is an obscure problem that occurs on the web that is very hard to describe. Because it is hard to describe, it is even harder to find an answer on the stackoverflow.
