Facebook Messenger is going to butt into your conversations asking you to buy something or make a reservation.

I'll stick with old fashioned texting, thank you.

Once again Facebook does something to further monetize the news feed by changing those already annoying auto play videos from sound off to sound on. Techcrunch lists a number of reasons why but Facebook's usual "testing proves that some people like it, so everyone else will just have to used to it" attitude prevails.

If you don't know how to make it stop, ZDNet tell you here: http://www.zdnet.com/article/how-to-mute-facebooks-new-auto-playing-video-feature/

Facebook and Google Have a Problem With "Crappy" Ads
(the actual headline, not that condensed thing at the bottom)
It's about time they demand better accountability from these online ad sellers.
Also, Facebook is going to cram more of them wherever possible.

Facebook is testing a lot more ads in a lot more places

Facebook Messenger is going to start testing "sponsored" posts smack in the middle of the screen. I know y'all just been askin' for more "engagement with advertisers."

In a statement to Billboard on Wednesday, [Joan] Jett said, “I grew up watching The Mary Tyler Moore Show. I was inspired that women were shown as being equal to men and it had an influence on me as I became a musician. The show was groundbreaking, important and funny. I will miss Mary Tyler Moore.”

Joan Jett's 1996 recording of "Love Is All Around" is used as the title song for 2000's "Mary and Rhoda" TV movie.

A clever ad from Me-TV that highlights both of Mary Tyler Moore's most successful series.

Now just make the whole thing go away and all will be better.

Well, now I am forced to look at the crummy redesign of Google Plus with no chance to get rid of those awful colors. Still no way to dismiss unwanted community suggestions (bug off "Google Cast Developers").
Also, I can't create a new paragraph on this post! (Actually I found that I can create a new paragraph, but first it has to be posted, then it can be edited. That's just stupid.)
This is why I did not change over before: surface gloss and poor design underneath. Bad, Google, just plain bad.
