A Facebook Page? Really?
Look, I know Facebook is the best thing ever and all, but why does every business on the planet need to have a page? I understand restaurants, bars & stores that might use it to lure in unsuspecting chumps* with coupons or promises of great offers, but now BANKS are on Facebook? WTF? Should I invite it on dates so it knows I'll need money? If I befriend it, will I get a lower interest rate? Am I going to post on its wall about how the ATMs are clean and rarely smell of urine**? I just don't get it. It's kind of embarrassing, like they're just begging for positive reinforcement (become a fan!). Fortunately, this blog never stoops to that level -- I just keep offering up quality posts, week after week, year after year, never asking for compliments. Right? Right?
* Like, say, me.
** Seriously. The Targo ATMs are pretty fing clean. If I need an emergency appendectomy, I'm completely ok with using the ATM waiting area.
