I are confused…

As many of you know, I am often confused, but really, someone clue me in here.  I was on Facebook and ended up on the page of a group called ‘ARKANSAS BLUES AND HERITAGE FESTIVAL ROCKS!‘.  Now what you may or may not know is that the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival is held in my home town.  It used to be called ‘King Biscuit Blues Festival’ and I either worked at or attended most of the first 10.  My wall is adorned with signed and numbered prints of the posters from the first 15.  The title is true.  This festival does ROCK!

So why am I confused?  Well, on pages of Facebook groups, on the right, there is a little box that says ‘Related Groups’.  Cool.  It would make sense that I would find other Blues Festival groups there maybe?  Well, at a glance, the top ‘Related Group’ is ‘Stop Barak Obama!’.  So how does Facebook arrive at this?  Seriously, I have never had a Facebook Group so, does the admin set the ‘Related Groups’?  If so, I don’t think I have to point out how rediculous this choice would be.  Or is it some Facebook agorithym?  If so, I think there are some developers that need to go back to the drawing board.

Now, just so there is no confusion, I am a die hard supporter of Obama/Biden.  So obviously, I wouldn’t be interested in this group as I disagree with them whole heartedly, but that’s not my point of confusion.  Even if it was pro-Obama/anti-McCain groups, I still don’t see how they relate to the festival.

At any rate, reading on the ‘Related Groups’, next is ‘Burger Shack Has The Best Cokes In Town!’.  Ok…I’ll give ya this one.  Burger Shack is a restraunt in the same town that is quite popular.  It really is great.  I would say the best Fries in town, but either way.  If you go to the festival, go get a burger.  IT’s worth it.

Moving on, the next entry is ‘John McCain and Sarah Palin in 08’.  Again, either a developer needs to go back to the drawing board or an admin needs to narrow the focus.

    I can’t say anything at all about Facebook groups work. But this Burger Shack place, I’d like to know more about that.

    Shawno, the place is delicious! If you are ever hanging out in Helena, AR, which I am sure you will, definitely go a munchin’. It literally has a sign on the roof that says ‘Best COKE In Town’. This used to be one of the funniest drug jokes I had ever heard. Not sure their Coca Cola was better than other places, but the fries and the burgers definitely were.
