Billg quits Facebook
Critical friend mass
Bill Gates is deleting, or at least disabling, the Facebook account he set up before investing in the company.
Gates, who retires from Microsoft in July this year, was apparently spending up to half an hour a day poking his mates and playing Scrabulous. But it is not evidence of the fading attraction of social networking - in fact Bill's page is just too social.
He started getting up to 8,000 friend requests a day and finding strange fan sites about himself, according to the Sun.
The paper said the page was getting too much attention, so Bill had to remove it.
Still, we're sure he can find something else to keep him busy once work at Microsoft stops in July. ®
I only have 2 on facebook
And thats merely to make them shut the fuck up and stop sending reminders to all their Email list every other day.
I haven't been to facebook since I first signed up and I've long since lost the password.
On the plus sign I no longer get "XXX wants to be your friend on facebook, why not sign up now" type messages almost daily from them.
Can Facebook really be called Information Technology when theres bugger all information involved? it's just empty egos.
"All my facebook friends bart one are people I know in real life, ...
The one is an astonishingly attractive Australian girl I got chatting to on Texas Hold'em"
You knew she was astonishingly attractive from her profile pic of course backed up by the fact she said so? ;o)
Sorry, couldn't resist.
...feel the magic ;)
And for the record all my friends are actually people I know!!
There's something quite romantic about having an empty howling soul...puts me in mind of Wuthering Heights...
