Bacon Sriracha Unicorn Diaries

A Breakup Letter to Facebook from Eat24

Dear Facebook,

Hey. It’s Eat24. Look, we need to talk. This isn’t easy to say since we’ve been together so long, but we need to break up.  We’d love to say “It’s not you, it’s us” but it’s totally you. Not to be rude, but you aren’t the smart, funny social network we fell in love with several years back. You’ve changed. A lot.

When we first met, you made us feel special. We’d tell you a super funny joke about Sriracha and you’d tell all our friends and then everyone would laugh together. But now? Now you want us to give you money if we want to talk to our friends. Now when we show you a photo of a taco wrapped with bacon, you’re all like “PROMOTE THIS POST! GET MORE FRIENDS!” instead of just liking us for who we are. That’s hella messed up.

how-dare-u

Don’t mess with us when we’re hangry.

To be honest, lots of our friends warned us about you (not to name names but to definitely name names: Forbes, Fast Company, Wall Street Journal). But we ignored them and trusted you because we loved you. Now we find ourselves questioning our entire relationship.

So we Googled you (nothing too creepy, just some light research) and found out you’re doing this because of a new algorithm that decides what people want to see in their news feeds. If that’s true, that means your algorithm is saying most of our friends don’t care about sushi porn, that they aren’t interested in hearing our deepest thoughts about pizza toppings. Are you listening to yourself? Do you know how ridiculous that sounds? You know that all those people clicked ‘Like’ on our page because it’s full of provocatively posed burritos and cheese puns, right?

churro

Are we making you horngry, baby? (Image credit and best name ever goes to:Chica Chocolatina)

But we loved you, Facebook, so we tried to understand you and your algorithm. As far as we could tell though, it involves the words ‘affinity’ and ‘time decay.’ There also might be a Greek letter in there somewhere but we’re not sure cuz we got bored and ordered a panini. Look Facebook, all we’re saying is that we wanted to share a joke about chicken wings, not ponder astrophysics.

confused-cats

WAT.

Truth be told, your actions make us feel like you don’t respect us. Maybe you think our food-related pick-up lines and sexy tater tots memes come out of nowhere, but we spend a lot of time trying to make people happy. Seriously, we dedicate at least an hour a day to finding a word that rhymes with Havarti because we want to write the first-ever cheese Sonnet.

All we do is give, and all you do is take. We give you text posts, delicious food photos, coupons, restaurant recommendations… and what do you do in return? You take them and you hide them from all our friends. Maybe you steal our random musings about pork buns and claim them as your own. Guess we’ll never know.

pipie

Let’s be honest, the only formula we’ve ever cared about is Pie.

Even if we could figure out your mysterious, all-knowing algorithm, it’s constantly changing, so what works today might not work tomorrow. Posting something that most of our friends see is like biting into a burrito and actually getting all seven layers…never gonna happen. The point is, you’re wasting our time and cock-blocking food porn from our friends. Not cool, Facebook, not cool.

But the bigger picture issue is that we can’t trust you. You lied to us and said you were a social network but you’re totally not a social network. At least not anymore. When we log in to Facebook, we want to see what Aunt Judy is doing next weekend (hopefully baking us cupcakes) and read hilarious headlines from The Onion and see pictures of a cat who got his head stuck in the couch cushions. Instead, we get this:

adsfb

Go away. For reals.

It makes us think all you care about is money. Why should we have to wade through a dozen promoted posts about how to lose belly fat (are you trying to tell us something?) and requests for Candy Crush (NO! Just no.) and suggesting we like our arch nemesis’ page (seriously, WTF) before we can finally find the perfect Doge meme, It really seems like you’ve lost your way and have become nothing more than an ad platform.

Yeah, you’re right. We made mistakes too. We actually paid for some of those annoying promoted posts. You were all like, “Dude, you gotta try out promoted posts, It’ll help you make more friends and then more people can enjoy your LOLZ.” So we tried it because we loved you. Also, YOLO.

pepe-thumbs-up

According to Facebook, we are cool and hip.

And it’s true, we got a ton of new likes on our page. Look at all these new friends, we thought. There’s a guy in Houston, and this guy in… Bangladesh? And this girl in… Dubai? WTF Facebook!? When we said “we want to take over the world with taquitos” it was mostly a metaphor (also it was 4:20 at the time). Well, we really do want to feed the whole world one day, but right now we’re only in the U.S., so even though we love our new international friends, we’d prefer not to piss them off by showing them a photo of a delicious calzone that they can’t even order. Why did you think we wanted friends we can’t actually feed? That makes about as much sense as getting a pepperoni pizza and only one slice has pepperoni on it.

pizzapep

Food analogies are the only thing that makes sense to us.

And don’t you dare play mind games and say we’re being crazy. We aren’t the only ones who feel this way. Check out this little video the fine folks at Veritasium made that puts a bit more insight into these “likes.”

Honestly, we’re kinda hurt that you’ve changed so much. We hardly recognize you with all the facelifts you had. Take a look back. You’ve changed your look more times than Madonna. Seriously. It’s not that we don’t like change, it’s just super annoying that you decide to increase banner dimensions by 5 pixels for no reason.

Real talk, if we had to choose between making 142 different size banners to conform to whatever you’re feeling that particular week, or lie on the couch and think about fried sushi rolls, we’re always going with sushi. Just saying, but maybe you could take a lesson from this amazing webpage for the Space Jam movie. The website hasn’t changed since 1996 and it’s AMAZING.

spacejam

Best. Website. Ever.

What? You don’t like being compared to an older, more distinguished website? Fine. Let’s talk about your peers. Not to hit below the belt, but we have a lot more fun when we hang out with Twitter and Instagram. They don’t have weird algorithms, which means all of our besties get to see everything we post. You might have noticed that when Ellen decided to take a selfie of beautiful people being beautiful, she did it on Twitter. And she got so many RTs, she broke it. The whole site went down. When was the last time you got that much action?

ellentwitter

#TwitterForever

So that’s it. We’re done. All you’re left with are some single-serve freezer meals. Us? We can eat a whole pizza by ourselves so we aren’t even worried about that. We’ll pack our things and be gone by 11:59pm on Monday night. Yes, you read that right. Eat24, the company that is always telling customers to Like our page, post on our wall, and ask us for coupons on Facebook… is deleting its Facebook. This is real.

Will anyone miss it? Will anyone even know it’s gone?

darth

Confession: Darth Vader is our father.

Who knows what’ll happen between now and Monday. Maybe so many of our friends will write on our wall to say goodbye that your API will break. Ok, we don’t actually know what an API is or if it can break but something might crash or have an error or make the mouse do that pinwheel thing. So have a nice life and good luck playing Words With Friends alone.

P.S. If you are reading this and your name isn’t Facebook, and you are in fact one of our beautiful hungry customers – WE STILL LOVE YOU and we’re giving you a chance to say goodbye. Any last words? Since we’re deleting the whole thing on Monday at 11:59 PM, you can say pretty much whatever you want. Confess your love of brussel sprouts, admit that you still suck your thumb, reveal your celebrity crush. We’ll never tell. Say goodbye to Eat24’s Facebook.

P.P.S.S. If you are reading this and you’re hungry, luckily our app isn’t powered by social media or even blogs. We’d love to help you make food happen. Get the Eat24 app and summon egg rolls to your couch.

P.P.P.S.S.S. Want to know what happened since we closed our Facebook page? Find out. (Spoiler Alert: Nothing).

    This is what it’s like to order from Eat 24 on a typical Wednesday night. Their app let me order (and charged my card) from a restaurant that was actually closed for the evening. I gave up on the perpetual hold at their customer service number so I tried the live chat that they promote on their app. Here is the response I got followed by crickets…

    “Hi James, chat support is more slammed than usual. Please excuse our s..l..o..w response.. Be with you soon! And thanks for understanding. You rock:)”

    I don’t rock. Actually I’m pissed. I ordered before putting my two small children to bed only to find out that my food was NEVER coming. eat me eat24.

    Being pissed, it makes two of us, and perhaps we are not the
    only. My one and only experience with eat24, has been very negative. My credit
    card it was charged by eat24, and the restaurant. I was lucky, I guess, to talk
    to their customer service and they assured me of a reimbursement that never
    happened. I contacted the service for a second time via email, once telephone
    operations were out of reach, but I’ve never gotten a response back. Not even a
    courtesy email.

  • eat24

    Hi Dean, that’s definitely not what we like to hear. We’d love to do anything we can to make things right. Please drop us a line at media@eat24.com if you have the time, so we can look into this for you, or if you prefer, you can leave your order # right here in the comments and we’ll take it from there. Thanks!

  • http://www.fantasytimesmagazine.com/ Dean Steven Nichols

    Judging from your response to Mr. Lewis, “BS and kick butt.” I am sorry, but in my book that’s not what I would call a professional response. I pay twice for a pizza, and that is all. eat24 to me it is out24. Never again.

  • eat24

    You’re absolutely right! It just makes us really upset when a restaurant issue leaves you hungry, but that’s no excuse for us to talk like that. We’d still love to look into the issue you experienced and do everything we can to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

    Good for you! I had my 1st bad experience with the restaurant that I use Eat24 for. There is only one restaurant that is registered with them, but I don’t like confrontation and Eat24 did it for me. It looks like Eat24 is good at getting what they want or showing how to shut them down.

    I guess we’ll never know? Either way, we’d really love to help them out and make things right :)

  • Zachary James Wood

    Yeah I’m sure you left facebook because of their business practices and not because it’s an easy way to dodge people’s bitter comments about your shitty service.

    PROMO CODE SPICE

  • eat24

    Our biggest regret about leaving facebook is the loss of one of our communication channels with our customers. But luckily we can still continue that here in the blog comments and elsewhere like Twitter @EAT24 and on email at media@eat24.com. We know it can be a pain to deal with customer service, but if you experienced an issue, we would love to get to the bottom of it for you on live chat at eat24.com/support. Also spice has expired but you can use coupon code ‘couch’ to save, and when that one expires all you need to do is ask us for another one :)

  • Patricia Renderos

    I think that we should not blame eat24 for everything, if we did not get our food deliver, or if it took two hours to get there, or if you did not get a refund which the restaurant agreed to give you. We have to remember it was the restaurat’s responsibility not eat24. Eat24 is just like a bridge service between you and the restaurants. They do have a duty too to make sure you get the food but does not have the total blame for the outcome. We should be thankful we have this service, it saves us the trip to go to the restaurant, and we can eat in thecomfort of our home. Besides if you have a bad experience with one restaurant, try another they have many on their directory. Ok, I am not being pay by eat24 or by nobody, to say this but I am just saying let’s give them a chance to serve us, beside we all make mistakes. God bless you

  • John

    The site is designed well but technically sucks. I’ve had so many problems with the site. I’ve had to make the order 3 times because it would close itself out after clicking “Submit Order”.
    Then the prices showed up differently when checking out, and then correctly on the receipt??

    I contacted tech support when the site removed all our orders and we got responses like “Dude that sucks” and “Whoa, totally awesome” said at inappropriate points in the conversation and overall not very helpful.

  • eat24

    Hi Patricia, thanks for your kind words. We don’t want to push the blame on anybody, we just want to make sure everybody gets fed :) Whenever an issue comes up, we always got your back!

  • eat24

    Hey John, thanks for letting us know about this. That’s definitely not the way we want you to be treated, and if you send an email with more info to media@eat24.com we’d love to get to the bottom of this for you and make things right.

  • Betsy

    We love eat24! Have never had a bad experience. Especially since you deliver food from restaurants that don’t. That saves us from going out. So, thanks.

  • eat24

    We love you more!

  • Tatiana Fenchurch

    Eat24 no longer has a facebook page so as to not have to deal with public acknowledgement of their deteriorating customer service. I have been using them every week for 2 years to order food for my office- every time a significant amount of food. In the recent months, many of our former places we used to order from are “out of delivery range” and today it took a half an hour to get my order fixed and sent in- and most of that half an hour was spent waiting for the customer service representative to call me back as she said she would. She never did, but the restaurant did. When I called and asked them if they were going to do anything to keep our business, she asked me what kind of a credit I thought was appropriate. I responded with a reasonable $10-15, and she came back with “Well the system will only let me enter $5″ and LAUGHED at me. Straight up laughed at me. And that was that. $5 and a mocking tone/laughter after 2 years of business like ours? Really disappointing, Eat24. I expected much better from you.

  • eat24

    Hi Tatiana, thanks for letting us know about this. The one thing we really miss after leaving Facebook is the loss of one of our communication channels with our customers.

    Cool publicity stunt – I find it quite hilarious that the only people complaining about facebook’s algorithms is marketers… not users. the fact is, your customers are still there… you just needed to shape up or ship out – looks like you took the latter course – creating a huge gaping hole for your smart competitor (the new you) to fill… good luck.

    I personally stopped using “my life is better than yours but in order to know that you will have to deal with banner ads” a.k.a Facebook about a year ago. It no longer provided the organic interaction with my friends, families and businesses that I prefer. EAT24 thanks for using your corporate voice to say what most of us have experienced and known. Years ago we were lied to about cable TV, that you pay the premium over regular TV and one major benefit is you won’t have to see ads, but that was when M-TV also was a channel that showed music videos:-) If only everyone kept it real!

  • LuTang

    This is a lot of heresay, conjecture, and misinformation taken out of context. I own a marketing company, and do this for a living. I PROMISE you, that Facebook is not out to screw any business over, nor force them to pay. Sure, you CAN be more effective on Facebook by paying for ads. But that’s not because your reach is declining.

    Your reach is declining because people aren’t interacting with the page, and you’re probably not posting new and creative things often…and probably not posting videos (which are HUGE). The less and less your posts get interaction, then less and less you’ll be visible in News Feeds…THEN you will have to pay to be seen since the posts are not considered “high quality.”

    These days, through the use of custom audiences and lookalike audiences, and video preferences, you absolutely can reach people pretty cost-effectively. You don’t have to spend millions or even thousands. Actually, in most cases, when you do it right and have at least even a modest email list (which Eat 24 surely does), you can event spend very little money. You have a choice to keep exploring ways to create great content that people will interact with…or just do better advertising and targeting on Facebook. I haven’t even mention Facebook re-targeting ads, which are another massive way to drive repeat traffic and business.

    Like I said, I own a marketing company, so this is what I do for a living and have been doing it for decades (years on Facebook). I have pages which NEVER place ads, but reach thousands of people via their posts. How? Because we are making creative posts and have an engaged following. That last part is key. When we make posts to pages which aren’t as engaging we notice the reach is less. When you have rabid fans, AND post great content, then you’ll see your reach not effected.

    Don’t get swayed by the misinformation out there and quotes taken out of context. Facebook marketing DOES work, but if you don’t want to put in the effort creatively and otherwise, then just buy cheap ads, do great marketing, and get the traffic that way.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE This email.. Im in the exact same arena as eat24 but just at a local level. Our job and only passion is to provide content to our followers. Content of food and restaurants.. Thats it but as EAT 24 perfectly place it, its an ad network now and not a social network.. Id have to say that that the hook now for them is the social network aspect.. It should be marketed as an ad network and if we like you, you may get some free traffic from it. But do NOT count on that free traffic (organic) traffic. Its simple and I’ve done this exercise plenty times just to prove my point. Write a post and see what type of engagement you get? Write it again exactly the same later on but this time with a boost and let me know what type of result you will get.. Bottom line, you show our posts, we will get engagements. So much time and effort to please your followers and big brother Facebook decides what they want to show MY followers. I’ve gone down from 2 posts per day to 3-5 posts per week.. Whats the point of doing all the work if no one sees it.. Im right behind you eat 24.. Just need a bit more time and see you on the other side.. Good job!!

  • Ariana Nicole Graeter

    Eat24 is a good idea in premise. However I just used them today, found good and bad things. Unfortunately the bad far outweigh the good when making use of their services. Sure the way to order is friendly and easy to understand, the various checkout methods are an added bonus and they have a lot of my favorite restaurants. The bad thing is I placed my order 2 hours ago and it still hasn’t been delivered to me……..I shall now but in a quote from Eat24….”.We’re here to help you. Enjoy your food, enjoy the time you get back in your day, and most of all, enjoy the delightful feeling of being taken care of. So whether you’re working late, in need of a one-night staycation, or just don’t feel like cooking – let us handle the food. Your only job is to enjoy every minute of it.” Where’s my enjoyment? Or rather more importantly where is the food I paid for 2 hours ago?

    My restaurant “broke up” with you today, thanks to another unpleasant conversation with yet another snarky, immature rep.
    I’ve never seen a business with more 1-star reviews (many who say they wish they could leave zero stars) I’m not a Facebook fan and I’m not on it any more, but let’s be real: your snarky, snotty “customer service” people lose a lot of business for you and have generated a lot of hate all over the web. Maybe you just didn’t want to have a place where more people could complain. Your staff is really too immature to handle a job. And they even say so!!

  • Elah Jones

    Ohhhhhhhh, I see. When someone makes a comment you don’t like, you delete it. That way you can APPEAR as though everyone likes you when in actuality, like I said, you have more one-star reviews than any company I’ve ever seen. And of course your deletion absolutely proves your immaturity.

    Its extremely simple, if people clicked “LIKE” on a fan-page, it means that those same people wanna see what that page is posting. The fact Facebook shows only certain things unless you pay to reach your own audience that you built with hard work, is ridiculous. I worked extremely hard to build up my fan page to over 225,000 fans… to post something and read “5,000 people reached”…. So really, while my instagram or twitter have less followers, I get more feedback from that very same post on those sites… I have fans, that ask me “man you have not posted anything new lately whats going on?”… whats going on???? I post things basically daily, whats going on, is facebook is not showing you those things.

    Hi Jill, thanks for letting us know about this. You’re absolutely right, and that’s definitely not the level of service we expect from our staff. We know you’re busy running your restaurant, but if you could email us at media@eat24.com we’d love to get to the bottom of this for you and make things right.

    Hi Jill, we’re seeing all of your comments here. Can you send us a screenshot of the stuff you think was deleted?

    That’s what happens when you let MBA types into any web-based company. They will monetize your product at tge expense of your user experience. They will put banner ads in every free pixel and ram sponsored posts down your throat. All in the name of making more money.

    I personally have been debating doing this very thing. I decided against it, I will tell you why. I was fine on facebook until, I decided to promote my book and open a second page. I never used it much before anyway. They revealed my birthday, I asked that it be kept private. Still I stayed. I travelled a lot, it was a good way to stay in touch with many. Without the toll charges before Tango etc.. bla bla bla.

    I am staying because of my followers who have a different experience because of me, as business owner and writer. They look forward to my posts. I owe it to them. they know not what they do online. lol! I would suggest you do the same. FB is playing itself out with their nonsense. Some people only use FB creatures of habit. You can post through twitter, never setting another finger in FB.

    DO it! Get familiar with iconosquare (IG`s desktop platform, designed to make marketing a breeze). FB recently cost me much more than money with their antics. I would like to believe they have overstayed their welcome in our lives and are headed the way of MySpace.
