Sum 41 doesn't like FacebookAuthor: Jacob Barkdull on Friday, July 30 2010 Comments ↴
That video comes from Sum 41: Day 5. Popular Canadian rock band "Sum 41", doesn't like Facebook, perhaps for technical and practical reasons, not really political reasons, but it's still awesome.
Deryck Whibley says he's "never been on Facebook", and that he doesn't "know how it all works (it's stupid)" while he says "MySpace is actually [a] decent layout." Jason (Cone) McCaslin adds "Yeah, it's easy." Those are clearly pragmatic view points. However, Cone goes on to voice his opinion of Facebook as:
"Facebook's like the breach of all privacy" and mumbles either "ever" or "I've heard". Deryck Whibley adds "Isn't that Twitter?" Cone replies "That too!"
While Sum 41 has a Facebook page, it is likely ran by the record label, as most of the content is just copies of what they post on MySpace and Twitter. And because Deryck Whibley says he's never used Facebook, and Jason McCaslin says "I have [used Facebook], but I don't have an account" it seems unlikely they are personally posting the content. I just think this is cool.
Now, if only we could get them off MySpace and on to Identi.ca :)
