Jonathan Ross Has Left The Building
*update 23/11/08: Jonathan is back on Facebook now!
Johnathan Stephen Ross, your Facebook friend and mine, has left Facebook. Yesterday his status said something like ‘I am thinking of leaving Facebook because everyone seems to be bugging my wife with friend requests’. Hmmmm.
If you search for Jane Goldman on Facebook -she’s part way down the page with the red hair, for you non-Brits **EDIT** WAIT! I got to the end of writing this post and now she’s gone from Facebook, too. Well up until 2 minutes ago you could view her friend list, add her as a friend AND send her a message. Though her profile wasn’t viewable by anyone, she was leaving herself wide open to “pestering”… If getting friend requests from strangers was such a problem, why didn’t she limit the options available in the search ie not allow people to submit friend requests, not allow people to see her friends, not allow people to message her etc? Problem solved. But she decided not to take that option.
Whatever, it was enough of an annoyance to Jonathan for him to decide to leave. Facebook will be more rubbish without him.
