Friday Humor: Facebook staff laughs as man tightens privacy settings


All 1,472 employees of Facebook, Inc. reportedly burst out in uncontrollable laughter Wednesday following New York resident Jason Herrick’s attempts to protect his personal information from exploitation on the social-networking site.

“Look, he’s clicking ‘Friends Only’ for his e-mail address. Like that’s going to make a difference!” howled infrastructure manager Evan Hollingsworth, tears streaming down his face, to several of his doubled-over coworkers.

“Oh, sure, by all means, Jason, ‘delete’ that photo. Man, this is so rich.”

According to internal sources, the entire staff of Facebook was left gasping for air minutes later when the “hilarious” Herrick believed he had actually blocked third-party ads. //The Onion
