WTF LJ?

mercurialsunshine: (Too far)
[personal profile] mercurialsunshine
Ok, so 2 things:

1. Has everyone else been having the annoyance that I have with lj lately? Whenever I go to read comments on someone's post or leave my own, a video ad pops up in the middle of my screen and it darkens the post/comments behind it and it won't let me turn it off until a required amount of time has passed. I find this to be like the greatest offense with advertising EVER. No, I don't have a paid account, but this seems too far. I don't mind the ads along the side of every damn page there is, but when you are actually getting in the way of my using the damn thing and slowing down (significantly so, my computer is a '00 and it hates loading things like that) what I am trying to do online, it makes me think "Eh, I guess I don't really care about replying to this post enough to sit here and let it lag my computer and have it play obnoxious Best Buy ads at me" FAIL.

2. Are there any of you on here that I am friends with that still don't have a facebook account? Or let me rephrase that: Are there any of you on here that actually post content on here that does not get reposted over onto facebook? I know a lot of you have been doing the thing where you have it feed your post here over onto fb, which is awesome. I am really kinda over livejournal, and this ad thing may just push me over the edge. That just means that I have to get used to the idea of posting actual blog like entries over on fb myself. Considering how rarely I do that now that I can micro blog there though... Eh, mostly I'm just thinking out loud here. I dunno if I would actually completely leave lj no matter how much I would like to since I know there's a few of you diehards on here that wouldn't want to post anything bigger on fb since you friend like 5 million people on there ;)

Truth to tell, I usually give different updates on LJ than I do on facebook and twitter. I'm more often on those, but LJ is where I write out all the big things in my life. They're afterthoughts on facebook.

Of course, I never expect people to have read my LJ, I'm pretty bad about keeping up with other people as well, so if it's REALLY important I'll be emailing anyway...

Hugs and Howls,
Mom

Gross, I don't do blog updates on facebook.

The way I see it:

Facebook = for photos and interactions about such.
Twitter = short, instant blogging.
Livejournal = where I can actually get a whole story out, and what I would pick if I had to choose between all three.

I've never seen ads like what you describe. Are you logged in when these happen? I set LJ to keep me logged in all the time. I only ever see ads when I get logged out for some reason, and never take-over-the-browser videos.

I don't friend 78623962 people over on FB, but I still don't like the thing. It's cumbersome, time consuming, and filled with too much junk. Apps, games, quizzes, etc. I'm on there solely to keep in touch with those who don't have an LJ or fail to use gchat ever. My LJ content will never be posted over there... OH HAI DIEHARD!

Oh, and this is the lame opinion of a paid user... I'm not paid right now, but I will be again as soon as I recover from moving expenses.

I don't even want half those people to know that I noticed they exist. I have to deny a lot of shit. Man, I hate FB.

ANYWAY, I came over here to comment because I just got one of those ads! But it had a little clickable X at the top right corner, and I closed it.

1. video ads? I am not getting those. I post and read comments and haven't seen any video ads pop up, so that's weird.

2. I like Livejournal for the comms more than the blogging! Facebook groups suck and no one ever posts in them EVER. I'm telling you, LJ Comms are the best online forums ever.
