This campaign features people complaining about Facebook because Facebook sucks in so many ways, including privacy. This one was funny because it features a real dilemma women go through which is people (okay, dudes) they don't know trying to friend request them. I guess if Facebook didn't make you micromanage the hell out of your account from every level it would be a lot easier to use, but you're not paying for it so you don't get the right to complain. I wonder if this campaign will ever show people complaining about how many ads they see? Doubtful.

    Put the facebook app on your phone and you'll pretty much get an alert every day about someone that facebook suggests you befriend. They're just a friend of a friend of yours, and you have no clue who they are but here lets make your phone beep! The only way out is to delete facebook.
