Welcome to part 2 of the 10 worst things about Facebook that you should keep an eye out for (read part 1):

1. Want to be friends?

Maybe we can handle a few companies asking us to be “friends” on Facebook, but it never ends there! You go into you Facebook account and find friend requests from companies you have never bought from, or even worse, you have never heard of!

Every birthday, you get loads and loads of short Facebook messages on your wall wishing you a happy birthday. You do realize that the only reason why most of them “remember” is Facebook’s notifications. Don’t you?
