Satire: Ask.fm Posts Disappear From Facebook
Students have expressed their concern at the complete disappearance of recent Ask.fm posts. These posts, used to promote a user’s account, have since scattered the Facebook news feed by people looking to gain a multitude of compliments and non-sexual comments by their peers.
Previously, we all enjoyed scrolling through our respective news feeds to see post after post of the big blue Ask.fm box, which would typically include a side note suggesting that we go ask our Facebook friends questions because they were ecstatic to do their homework. Even more exciting, was when friends added their Ask.fm links as comments, making the post so long that you had to scroll for at least 15 minutes before happening upon a different story.
Worried that you missed someone post their page? Worry no more! You can be sure that they posted their profile link a minimum of 10 times a day, to make sure all their Facebook friends could remember their personalized url/username in at least an hour.
As of late, a staggering change in the Facebook home page composition has taken place, as students initiated a mysterious and sudden rampage of deleting their accounts. When asking Sophie Tregon, a senior at M-A, what she thought of this epidemic, she said, “I really miss seeing everyones’ links on my news feed! That became the only reason I started going on my Facebook. I sincerely cared about the answers given on Ask.fm by people I didn’t talk to.”
It is evident that students are eagerly waiting for their Facebook friends to start spamming their news feed with more links to profiles they will once again be able to stalk. Facebook will not be the same until Ask.fm posts reappear to such an extent that it becomes the only thing viewable on the home page.
