the evenings out here - Thoughts, rants and musings about absolutely everything except photography. Or cats.

Facebook. Welcome to the Hall of Shame.

(warning: bad hair day) Trying to ramp up my use of Facebook this morning, so I've gone into my profile. The contact panel is total rubbish. It fails to save data I enter (it has lost all my IM screen names twice, I had to enter my URL twice, etc). It doesn't recognise MSIDSN format for cell phone numbers, so "+417987565432" becomes "417987565432", and "41(0)7987565432" becomes "4107987565432". It has a mind of its own as far as privacy setting are concerned. I guess it works fine in California. Whatever. Do they still do testing in California, or is that soooooo Web 1.0 ?
