Submission + - Ignore your dull family, says new Facebook Home ad (

plastick writes: Admit it, your family is just awful. Your Facebook friends are more important and interesting, says a new Facebook ad.

You know those self-centered, self-regarding people who just have to look at their cell phones during dinner? Facebook loves them. Facebook admires them. Facebook wants to promote them.

This thrust toward spiritual progress is the company's latest ad for Facebook Home...

Oh, all families are awful, aren't they? They insist on imposing emotional control upon you. They tell you what to do, what to think, what to believe, and which lover to toss down the chute of despair. And what do you get in return? Food, that's what. Yet Facebook wants you to believe that your Facebook friends are your real family. Yes, those people whom you hardly talk to, hardly remember, or hardly even know.
