Messenger

A FaceBook status update originally posted on 14 August 2014

Hey FaceBook. Try telling us in a plainer way you won't forward messages again until we install your other Messenger App.

Don’t just put up a bland advert for it. I'm not in the habit of installing the usual crap peddled on your site. I certainly won't install via links through you.

And by the way. Why does it need a separate App anyway? Are we to expect a separate App for news, or photos or each of our friends posts soon?

A short Film by Vince, filmed on location in Paris, France in December 2004.

The short film features clips of my friends and I filmed near the Eiffel Tower at night on a Nikon compact camera and lasts just 38 seconds.

The closing shot is of a Parisian red-light district filmed from my bedroom in the hotel we all stayed at.

The sound is stock Apple music available within the iMovie application.

The editing was carried out by me on the iPhone iMovie application using customised stock title cards.

This film was uploaded to YouTube, in the People & Blogs category, in July 2014 and has since received 13 views.

Suggestions

A FaceBook status update originally posted on 4 August 2014

I'm wondering.

What if I said yes to every suggestion FaceBook makes about 'People I may know’.

Would I eventually befriend everyone on this site? All 1.28 billion of them.

Maybe, just maybe, FaceBook might stop pestering my feed with suggestions.

Also I might start accepting all the games invites.

Too far?
