I hate that too. And that if you have notifications turned off for messenger it will constantly show it as an action item to turn them on.

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

Is this related to being able to log in to third-party sites (for which I forgot the password) via Facebook?

Because if so, I like it.

Try it without the quotations and you'll get more results. I had no idea people actual put search queries in quotes, LOL.

Quoting search queries is an essential step on the path to becoming a google ninja. Obviously you don't do it for every query, but it's appropriate there.

Re: idiotic / narcissistic / annoying facebook statuses

It's weird that they got rid of the + operator, but I guess you can do a verbatim search now if you're looking for the same thing?

I can't believe none of you triggered on the kid's name - Roosevelt. They live in Brooklyn of course.

Wow on the Tapatalk app it looked like that was part of your post and you were asking me to Google the word "remove". Opened in browser and this makes sense now, lol me. Also, no.

It is related to Facebook trying to get you to log in so they can monitor your Chrome usage and track you. They don't allow you to simply say "no". Instead, your only option is "OK" or "Not Now". If you go with the "Not Now", they never stop asking you. They are trying to wear you down with what is effectively a nag screen since they never let you simply say no. The nag never permanently goes away unless you agree to it with "OK".

No, I've never used them and Google never has a problem finding what I want. Even if I'm trying to find a clip of a TV show or movie on YouTube I just start typing in random lines from it, without quotes, and they always find exactly what I'm looking for.

In the instance I was commenting on using the quotes did in fact only produce one hit to a page that was not in English. When I tried searching without quotes it turned up page after page after page of exactly what he was looking for.

stinkubus - could you please help me out by posting some of those links, since I don't seem to be competent enough to find them on my own?
