Facebook offers fully automated profiles for morons | NewsBiscuit

Facebook is set to offer fully automated profiles by the end of next year. Users who lack the will to update their status in person at odd intervals will be able to pre-select a lifetime's worth of status updates that will automatically be posted to their profiles.

'If you pick a Facebook profile at random you'll notice that it is either a load of stupefying banalities or outright lies. This is because most people have really dull lives and/or they are too dreary to say anything interesting anyway,’ a spokesman for the office of Mark Zuckerberg explained. ‘So we thought most people would see no difference between their mates posting the same old crap and a computer doing it on their behalf.'

Facebook to be split into ‘Sanctimonious Bullshit’ and ‘Stalking’ divisions | NewsBiscuit | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Following its plans to break up Britain’s banks, the EU has announced controversial proposals to separate Facebook into two distinct ‘Sanctimonious Bullshit’ and ‘Stalking’ units. EU competition commissioner Joaquin Almunia explained: ‘Much like the banks, Facebook is too big to fail and we cannot allow a collapse in one side to affect the other.

They forgot the sell-sell-sell division and the cat lovers. Got to love looking at ourselves in the mirror of satire.
