10 Things You Didn't Know About Facebook

While we're all having a swell time on Steemit, most of us, lets face it, still visit Facebook now and again; if for no other reason than because none of us have the time to stalk our exes in person these days. Here are some lesser known facts about the social media juggernaut that lie somewhere on the scale between almost interesting and almost true:


  1. The average Facebook user checks Facebook 16 times a day. As a point of comparison, the average Steemit user checks Steemit 16 times an hour to see if the fucking site's back up and running yet.

  2. You can't block Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook. I think I speak for everybody when I say I'm sick of seeing his videos of that talking animated penis pop up in my feed. Oh that's just his face? Nevermind then.

  3. The 'Like' button was initially going to be called the 'Awesome' button. Other rejected names include 'Fuck Yeah', 'I'd Tap That' and 'I don't really give a shit about your dinner/cat/baby, but the rules of social propriety dictate that I provide some meaningless validation of your existence here.'

  4. Mark Zuckerberg receives only a $1 yearly salary as the CEO of Facebook. And the kids working at the sweatshop I run think they've got it hard.

  5. Facebook has over 2 billion active monthly users, narrowly beating out the previous record held by your mom.


  6. There are over 50 million dead people on Facebook. In fact, 10,000 Facebook users die each day, which begs the question: why don't we save all these people by taking down the site?

  7. The main color of Facebook is blue because Mark Zuckerberg suffers from red-green colorblindness. At least he'll be able to clearly see my balls.

  8. Facebook is responsible for 1/3 of all divorces in the USA, making it the number 1 source of marital break ups in the country. So if you're trapped in a loveless marriage, using Facebook is by no means a guarantee; you may have to resort to more drastic measures such as fucking the mother-in-law.

  9. Facebook tracks the sites you visit even after you sign out. You can imagine how inconvenient that is for someone like me where my roommate always borrows my laptop to visit porn sites right after I check up on how well my ex is holding up following our recent break up 4 years ago.

  10. You can change your language on Facebook to 'Pirate'. Doing so will rename your news feed to 'home port', friends list to 'crew roster' and trending topics becomes 'popular booty' etc. Clever eh? Now, if they really had a sense of humor, they would have offered braille as an option too.

Well there you go, hope you all learned something new about Facebook. With this information, you can all become billionaires by travelling back in time to 2005 and investing in the company, so what are you waiting for?

It was worth the 3 attempts to vote and post a comment for this line alone....

Facebook has over 2 billion monthly active users, narrowly beating out the previous record held by your mom.

Fucking hilarious. 😂

haha yeah I can get really mature like that :)

Is your mum on FB, Perc?

My Mum doesn't even have WiFi babe let alone Facebook.

It got ways better though the last days. Doesn't take 10 attempts anymore 😉

Ya but how would you invest in the company? They’re not interested in your $10. Instead, save up to buy bitcoin in 2009 from Satoshi on the forums :)

Yah..agree..bitcoin for less than a dollar..2008? My 100 dollar was worth 100BTC..my 200 dollar will be worth more than 200 BTC..what a nice life i could have been..if i discovered BTC earlier...lol
300BTC times 6558 dollars..thats 1967400 times 50= P98,370,000..

Btw, Bitcoin's block chain does not go back to 2008.

That’s an insightful article in a very humorous way!

thanks a lot htliao :)

Could you do a

10 Things Facebook Knows About You.

hmm probably not a bad idea, maybe one day :)

Haha your humor is spot on lol ! Made me crack up for each point 😂

and theres a thing called Legacy contact
"You can nominate someone to take care of your facebook when something happens to you" :)

haha yes I guess it's wise to plan ahead when you're a pirate like me who's likely to walk the plank one day

such interesting info, I didn't know Mark Zuckerberg suffers from red-green colorblindness .. and also feel like steemit it so much better today .

better yes, still took me a few tries to post a reply here hehe

it was like that for me for the past days ,and but now I can post super fast! Can u guess it's pretty exciting for me ..lol

Lol. This is hilarious. Now, where's my delorean...

I'm borrowing it to stop zuckerberg's parents from ever meeting

Hahaha.I enjoyed the laugh.
Upvoted and resteemed :-)

thanks a salways lichtblick

Aha! Very interesting data, thanks for sharing.


Facebook and ( Instagram ) :))) It is one very big joke :)))

It even asks me money, That my neighbor can see me :)))
The only thing I do there, I but up my steemit links, just this.
And soon I close my Instagram too .

hopefully steemit can take over social media and we won't need the other anymore

Yes...and very soon :)

You miss one thing, and I make it 11, Facebook was Russia bitch during the election and it was responsible for Donald Trump Presidency, now the Democrats can't get over so, so censorship is at an all time high...lol

haha i'm happy to blame trump on anyone really

Hahahahaha...damn Trump and those Russian sponsored facebook ads...

hehe, love it 😂 I don't really want to check your fb though as it seems like you're just posting your blue balls over there 😜

yup! so zucky can get a good look at them

So as he's posting the Penis, you reply with balls 😂😂:D

You always manage to make me laugh, my dear. Everything you say has always a spark truth in it ..... thanks for the exchange my friend !! steem on....

thanks for checking out my post again :)

welcome my friend....

Hahaha! Every point cracked me up, man! I really wish you didn't put a number on them, because I wouldn't know how to rank them. Those sweatshop kids... ugh! Always finding things to complain about. I'm coughing up blood and having trouble breathing or my teeth are falling off PFT! Zuck's living on $1 a year, just like Steve Jobs that came before him. You won't ever see them complain, especially Jobs. In fact, they won't ever hear anything from him anytime soon.

Just a thought I had as I was sitting in the toilet: what if you had @traf's profile picture horizontally flipped to give that kind of juxtaposed feel to it?

haha thanks jedau
woudln't be a terrible idea :)

Right!? I mean, after all my other ideas, the only direction to go is up. So, yeah :D

We visit pages no longer live! - I think it's a fact. But now I do not want to visit my Facebook page)
The main color of Facebook is blue because Mark Zuckerberg suffers from red-green colorblindness. At least he'll be able to clearly see my balls. - lol

Well, People takes Facebook as a necessity while its only a social media platform. It doesn't provide us value in any sense except sometimes people get the person of their dreams over there :) Lol.

Can we stop with FakeBook? Better Yesterday dan today.


@trafalgar i am not sure you'll see my comment or not But One more fact that you missed out is, facebook is worlds biggest (hidden) market search company, which sells the users database. I have an app and its well devopled when I open my facebook profile its shows me; facebook bots tracking my records with browsing history i see many cookies and catchy files too. they have a bots inside, they are tracking everyones personal data, they knows where we are seeing, where we are clicking on our own profile. Thats very dangerous.
thanks. your post made me openedup little.

The truth is supposed to hurt like this.

The 11th thing you might not know about facebook is that it is not monetized and so that is why am not quite frequent to facebook again after in discovered steemit.😁😁

Fuck yeah ! This could become a regular roast FB column, no ? just saying ....

most of my posts have a similar tone anyway

Haven't been on steemit for awhile, forgot how funny your posts are mate.... blue balls lol.... thats gold :).

thank you :) I was away for a long time too

Super funny :)

thank you for reading

Traf my friend, facebook sucks, there is nothing more that we need to know other than that <3

All the best brother !

Number 8 and 10 are most funny....

hmm if I had to pick myself, I'd go with 3, 9 and 10

The ten useless facts.

You wanna explain to me why you flagged my comment?

I'm sorry - false click. Fixed.

Hehehe, you got me here, @trafalgar. Please where's that your second account cuz I'm heading there. Nice one! @greatness96

Comedian. You are really witty. Great info. Zuckerberg is colour blind, never knew blue was the colour he saw best. An amazing example of how colors actually affect our purchasing decisions. After all, sight is the strongest developed sense in most human beings.

Hilarious! You have a very wicked sense of humor.

thanks a lot, glad you enjoyed it :)

@trafalagar - Lol. Yup - I am waiting to invent my time machine. Already got the spinning discs (my bicycle wheels), the crazy disco light ball and the flashing siren lights I stole from the local police squad, my trusty screw driver, the battery from my car and a comfortable lounge chair from Singapore airways business class (to act as captain's chair). All I am waiting for is to complete my back of the napkin calculations and boom - I will be back in 2004 - to invent the F book before Zuckerberg. (Tomorrow morning, when you wake up, you are gonna find that the F book is actually the Wild Book - named by me after me - The Wild Spirit!)



LoL that was a funny read thanks for giving me a lot of laughter!

Facebook has become one of the biggest spy tools for the elite and I think it was planed from the beginning the best is to cancel FB and switch to Steemit.

I know that they spy on us with Data Deals like FB and Amazon did.

In order to get the profile data of as many Facebook users as possible, Amazon has silently and secretly closed a gigantic data deal with Facebook.

The button "Connect with Facebook" has appeared on Amazon for some time. If you click on it, your Facebook account opens, where an app starts automatically. With a click on it, he loads the profile data of all his friends on the servers of Amazon.

Which products the customer likes, is for Amazon long clear. But now they also knows about the preferences of many Facebook members - they do not know about it and it does not matter if they have ever bought at Amazon. After all, only one Facebook member needs to use the Connect feature and Amazon already has the profile data of his friends. This includes:

Name, date of birth, place of residence, photos
Profile info about movies, books, TV shows
The interests, activities, quotes specified by the Facebook users
All the blog posts and Facebook activities where users have shown interest via "likes" button.

This gives Amazon the opportunity to deliver personalized product recommendations to Facebook friends.

"Facebook is responsible for 1/3 of all divorces in the USA, making it the number 1 source of marital break ups in the country"....How much is this in relation to the number of wedding couples
that found each other through Facebook online dating? ;-)

Hilarious.. ha ha..

You can change your language on Facebook to 'Pirate'. Doing so will rename your news feed to 'home port', friends list to 'crew roster'..

This was funny :)

Mark Zuckerberg receives only a $1 yearly salary as the CEO of Facebook.

While he amassed $75 billion net worth in bonuses.

Interesting stuff, thanks for this! Didn't know you can't block Mr. Zuckerberg. I still use FB a lot though, for marketing purposes.

And by the way, thanks for the upvote earlier today, much appreciated. Thanks for following me!! I hope you have a WONDERFUL AND BLESSED DAY! 😀 😃 😄 😁

Facebook milion user..

Please help in funding in the sector of the education

You are telling that your balls are blue??

By the way, I like no 6

There are over 50 million dead people on Facebook. In fact, 10,000 Facebook users die each day, which begs the question: why don't we save all these people by taking down the site?

Haha this is gold. I think it is crazy how much Facebook can track everything you are doing once you leave. Its a little crazy that everyone just has to accept being okay with that

which is quite a feat, need to retweet a few thousand times a day hehe

I think she hates Facebook

very informative information i agree with no. 8 almost this is true

I have been a Facebook user for almost 7 years and Most of people do silly things like praying or cheating...the worst thing ilof Facebook is most of people are addicted to accessing it everyday and they never know that they are helping Mark Zuckerberg to be richer and richer day by day and the user get nothing except they want to do online business...
In Indonesia, there are at least 10 criminal case caused by Facebook..I think they have to be stemian
and leave Facebook because steemit give you profit by sharing new things to the world wide.. I love steemit very much now because it teaches me how to write well and be kind on accessing sosial media

wow,,Its great

From where did you get these facts so much hilarious and enexpected things about facebook so should i shift to instagram instead of facebook

I like it how you observed Facebook...

very interesting..l least knew all these...but its very good to know
