Default The downside of FB sharing...

Since Facebook introduced the 'Share' link, I've been receiving a deluge of soppy, saccharine, badly-designed 'cards' from game friends. This one just turned up...

Oh gag...'-}}

I get forwarded emails like this--always as part of a group of email addresses--from people I know and I find it annoying but I figure there is no stopping them so I just delete the emails.

Do the cards actually display on your FB page--in full view of everyone and god??? If so...I'll add it to my list of reasons not to FB...'-}}

I'm glad I don't know what those share links are, otherwise I might have clicked one.

I'm sure I never clicked one of those, but I still get tons of "messages" from people I never heard of from FB. If someone finds a way to stop the deluge I would really want to know how!

These images just show up in my news feed, because they're 'shared' by people who are my game friends on FB. My real people friends don't do this, of course!

Well, they managed to screw up "hug's" correctly, but they didn't misspell "you're" right.

Not only that, but they got 'your' right as well. Pity they set the leading to the type size...
