Quick rant about Facebook messages

I've posted plenty of positive stuff about Facebook, now let me get nasty. Here's two annoying things about Facebook messages (especially with my eye on University mission next year):

  • The fact that people (especially students) do their social and meaningful emailing through Facebook messages and reserve email for junkmail/formal mail really sucks. Why exchange a powerful and very adaptable tool for a really lame equivalent? "Un-like"
  • The fact that Facebook Pages can only send 'Updates to Fans' and not 'Messages' also sucks. You'd have to go out of your way and check your 'Updates' or else program your email alerts to tell you when someone send you an update. Most people won't do this I guess. Why this annoying distinction (rhetorical question, please dont' answer)? "Unlike"
