I don't think it will ever take off, solely based upon the name alone. I haven't even looked at it yet.

Woot. Just got an invite. People are giving them out all over.

No real reason it shouldn't take it off. It does everything facebook does (better) and a shitload more. Not to mention to integration with Android phones, that's a huge userbase already.

Looks like I have invites, if anyone wants one PM me your email. I'm giving them to RL friends as priority though.

People get mad when Facebook changes where they type in their status, and create hundreds of "BRING BACK OLD FACEBOOK" pages. Do you really think the infinite amount of people that use FB are going to change over their infinite amounts of photos etc just for the sake of "new stuff", which they happen to hate anyways? I personally don't think so. People are too ignorant and closed minded for this stuff. I'm sure hipster guys from California will be all over Google+ (crap name), but 16 year old high schooler won't even know it exists.

Its like people who listen to MP3s on foobar2000 instead of iTunes, but don't get me started on that.

Or I'm an idiot and it becomes huge, who knows...

I'm with you on that. I just don't see this taking off. Why change sites when you don't have to? Unless they offer a ton of new features, theres no reason to leave whats already established.

I like how you can separate your friend groups a lot better.

Yea I like it. You can't post on people's walls (there are no walls) as far as I can see, but since you can customize who sees your posts, the same thing can be achieved from the wall.

Making circles and whatnot is very easy and intuitive.

Invites are open again, btw.

edit. Invites gone again.

Actually, I'm 17, thank you very much. Haha, but I'm also very technically inclined (and have 607 rep on TheHelper!) which basically makes me better than most other high schoolers (no offense to any members :) ).

Backing him up on this one, pretty much the same story, except with lower rep count ^_^

im a 16 year old high schooler and i know it exists D:
and my 497 rep > 607 FYI (less is more, right? right.....?)

personally i dont use facebook often at all, so i dont think i will make an account on it. then again i plan on not doing a lot of stuff at the beggining but do it in the end anyway so who knows. it seems like its getting pretty big and well known already though, its all over many different websites that i've been to. failbook has some google+ fails already.

i see a lot of hipsters switching over at first and once it becomes big they'd be all like "i was here first why is everyone copying me"

I'm on it, and so far I do not like it too much. Doesn't seem like it really flows very easy, it's fairly cluttered at the moment.

    I think you can still run the original game, just there's a chance your map won't work with the newer patches
  • jonas jonas:
    what development framework have you been looking at for mobile development?

    I'm currently creating (as a hobby) a space invaders like game for mobile using Xamarin, after starting a few larger projects that I also may not have finished :rolleyes::p

    Awesome! you should look at the Atari VCS platform it does not have a huge user base but the one it has is super active at around 11k and they have no games in there store

    But Unity might be easiest

    mostly failing at life through adulthood really demotivated me for a while

    ....what I don't get is why the fuck they would force us to permanently convert to a version of the game everyone fucking hated : \

    Raid Shadow Legends texture pack smh
  • jonas jonas:
    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.
