It takes me forever to read that stuff and those people quickly find themselves deleted. The sad thing is being in a professional workplace where grown adults don't know how to spell or write complete sentences. Very sad.

I guess now every underhanded website desperate for hits is going to make an article entitled FACEBOOK LOGIN to try and attract these morons too.

What's disturbing is how many people rely on just mashing words into google and then smashing enter without even checking where they're going. I used to wonder how phishing sites found people so dense, but we're now at a point where a lot of people using computers really don't know the absolute basics about them.

This is why the google computer will be a huge hit.

If google also manages to integrate social networking with the main page, they will rule the internets.

Why are so many people searching for Facebook Login? Why not just Facebook? Somebody get these people a browser with an omnibar so it completes the URL for them after typing 'f'.

My users love to install the Yahoo Toolbar and use the built in search to search for Yahoo, seriously, click on Yahoo after the results come up and then search the main Yahoo page for whatever they are looking for. Usually coupons or American flag screensavers.

I work in tech support and this is a sad truth. Lots of people, even relatively young folks who seem to be in their 20's or 30's, type the address in some Google or other search bar and never go to the intended sites. They just click on the first result which isn't always right.

My work involves calls with DOCTORS and I still get people who don't use the address bar to type in URLs. They google the goddamn URL instead.

Edit, screw honest work, let's all get into phishing.
