So, it occurred to me today,and I posted this on facebook, that it would be very telling if you could get people to answer the question, ‘what do you warn your other friends about me before you introduce us.’ the problem, of course, is that nobody on facebook is going to answer with something like, ‘oh, he’s an asshole. A good guy, but a real asshole,’ which is, in fact, what I warn some of my friends before I introduce them to other friends. As for why I have friends who are assholes… it isn’t as though being an asshole is an entirely bad thing…. but back on point, very few people have the nerve to actually tell you your flaws to your face. but many of us really want to know. So I thought it would be cool if you could post something on facebook but categorize it in such a way that, a) only people on your friends list could answer but b) the posts were all kept anonymous.
The other thing that I really wish you could do for facebook relates to those stupid ‘which hogwarts house would you be in,’ or ‘which character from firefly are you,’ quizzes. the thing that bugs me about that is that I already know how I see myself. What would interest me is if I could set one up so that my friends could take the quiz about me and I could see how they perceived me.
Anyhow, just some stuff I think would be cool.
