Ouch, these are awful :( Web designers and developers really need to put more effort on their communication acts instead of thoughtlessly re-using programming jargon.

It's just like my real life, all conveniently bundled up in one place!

"You have no friends" is bad enough but "you're ugly too" is just gratuitous!

It says that for everyone, right?

Maybe they have and they want people to feel bad if they don't use their product more?

I commute an hour on the bus every day to get to work. When I use Google Maps to check bus times, it helpfully tells me "Or Drive/Taxi: 25 min". Fuck you Google Maps.

isn't that what a google+ hangout looks like when you are the only one there?

That is what it looks like. I know, because the days my boss isn't around to start the staff Hangout, starting it falls to me. But the boss is gone and I'm the boss of nobody. So sad robot for me two days out of three since, hey -- Michael's not the boss. I assume everybody else is off in a field ... Frolicking.

'You should plan a trip' is quite hopeful, no?

My inner misanthrope does not see these as representative of despair. My inner misanthrope thinks these are utterly glorious, and wishes my actual social networks were more like that.
