I dont like how this video glorifies the Timeline feature.

The timeline layout looks horrendous and should be removed.

I get it! "Mark of the Beast" (Beast's owner)

I always enjoy a good flash simulated documentary. They are usually humorous & point out issues that one has about the topic being spoofed. In my opinion, FB needs a few good parodies, because their support is bad, and they seem to be isolated from the rest of the world. They just do whatever they please & only worry about the consequences, after people complain about the features they release. What is Timeline? It's tearing the face off of the virtually dead MySpace & wearing it Lecter style. It's nothing new. One's frustrations need to go somewhere. A good parody always helps.

The animation was basic, but it did its job. The writing was good. It didn't make me laugh until I couldn't breathe, but there were ample chuckles to myself. It was a little on the subtle side. It didn't rely on silly voices, over the top profanity, and shouting. I enjoyed it, though.
