A note to all of the people at whom I inadvertently threw a Facebook “snowball”

I find most Facebook apps annoying, especially the ones that take actions on a user’s behalf with no warning – as was the case, apparently, with the lame “snowball” app I encountered yesterday. I received a message about a Facebook friend throwing a virtual snowball at me, clicked on the message to find out what it was all about, and presto! I apparently sent the same stupid message to all of my Facebook friends.

It’s this type of time-wasting junk that may ultimately kill Facebook, along with more serious problems such as the use of Facebook as a malware distribution platform.

In any case: sorry for the annoyance...
