Facebook: a social networking website.

Today, millions of internet users are using Facebook everyday. Heck, even I do, but I've noticed one thing. Just to read a post from a friend, I have to scroll through about 25 pictures of cats, memes and offensive pictures. Facebook was meant to only socialize, not put thousands of pictures of duck faces on it. It sickens me to see post that read "like this if you love your mom, scroll if you want her to die". Nobody needs to prove that they love their mom by liking something as useless as a picture.

Facebook has changed alot, from socially based to more advertising based. I see companies/products that I have liked, post pictures of their product and why it's so great or why you should buy more. I know that that's how Facebook earns it's money, but it's gone overboard.

I can'y scroll down my notifications to see spammers or sometimes friends send me game/app request. Or even go through my wall without seeing "Does (eg.) 'Joe Binkins' love you?" It's getting annoying. I decided to join Facebook becuase I can keep up with what my friends are talking about, not to see ads, spams and inappropriate pictures.

Sorry voters about that last FF. It was New Year's Eve and there was alot of things going on.
Anyways advertisements help get money on the website. If there were no ads, there would be no website.
The inappropriate pictures are usually posted by "friends" so to remove that problem, remove the friends that post those pics.
We must apply this belief to this debate.
Things are usually what they are made up of.
Therefore, if advertisements are junk, then Facebook is junk.
Facebook isn't junk.
Therefore, the advertisements are not junk.
The advertisements are actually quite informational. They provide you with information about what's being made and is a benefit to the website and the people on the website.
