Crackbook

"To find people you know who are not using Crackbook, pick up the phone and give them a ring" Via somebody on Facebook of course. Not short on the English - read toilet - humour, Crackbook does manage to capture the uglier sides of social networking: "Michael Thomas is frantically detagging himself from photos of him with other women before his girlfriend Sharon Oliver notices."

Stripping back the URL, it's part of a site by David McCandless, who apparently boasts quite a colourful geek history.

"Kittens Skitter Uncontrollably On Lino Before Hitting Uncovered Industrial Fans" -- nicely done. As a book marketing site, this is brilliant.

Despite the lameness of Facebook and the overusedicity of "crack" as a joke, this was funny.

I wouldn't mind the Paranoia Plus app.

The b3ta version.

I do hope this latest wave of parodies is the glorious beginning of the exodus from Facebook, leaving behind only the ultrapokers who will bud off into a self-contained universe of their own, like all the old MUDs and MOOs.

It's still not cluttered and drunken enough to really pass as Facebook.
