Can't you just use the web?

Someone posted a link recently to an apparently interesting video. Clicking on the link, this is what I get. I'm sorry, I have to join facebook to see your interesting video?

What about just putting it on the web? Gaws.

Here's the sad part. The movie is already on the web; FaceBook doesn't actually store anything at it's site, it's all pass-through. The movie might well be at YouTube. All FaceBook does in this case is serve as a bottleneck.

Hear hear!

Trying to watch one of those "facebook movies" might have been the only surprise/frustration I felt using the Internet in ages. :|
And having to upgrade flash didn't help either. :|

Cheers! :)
