Parody of how it feels when Facebook makes changes

Facebook is known to move things around and change your settings, always ending in a “take a tour” button, which one comedy group mocks in their new web video.



Facebook gets the sketch comedy treatment

We all know what it feels like when we log in to Facebook and things have been moved around and privacy settings have defaulted to some obscure setting allowing everyone to see everything. It’s frustrating. While the design of Facebook has been noted to be improving over the years, we all know that “blah” feeling when we have to “take the tour” when the social network changes things repeatedly.

EXTREMELY DECENT is a sketch comedy group based out of Los Angeles, CA and has responded to this very feeling with a hilarious take on what it would feel like if Facebook were tangible and in your home every day, making changes:

Critic weighs in

Any time someone posts a parody or critique of anything regarding social media, the standard response is that if you don’t like it, you shouldn’t use it.

One YouTube commenter addressed the Extremely Decent group with the note, “I hate when people bitch about Facebook…it’s a free service, leave if you? don’t like it,” to which the comedy group appropriately replied, “Just like Amurica.” Perfect.

Bonus video

If you were highly entertained by the last sketch and enjoy cuss words, the group takes a swipe at cable and internet providers. Enjoy:

    I “pay for it” in time and content. I also advertise, which I pay for with money, which buys me…high end, top shelf nada.
