Wow, I haven’t even been married six months and Facebook already thinks that I’ve got marriage issues. I’d like to think that my marriage is going really well. In fact, I thought that the day we spent today, traipsing around town, was some of the most fun in ages.
But Facebook apparently thinks otherwise. In fact, when I logged in tonight, it invited me to reconnect with Wendy Franks, my wife:
Apparently, their algorithms have determined that we’re drifting apart and need to ‘reconnect’. I guess Wendy keeping me in her profile photo is just a charade (and a particularly cruel one, given that it’s one of our wedding photos) – but Facebook knows better. In fact, it’s completely unimaginable that the reason that I don’t write on her wall could be the fact that I live with her and spend more time with her than anyone else on earth, right?
Time to tweak the algorithms folks.
