Not every Facebook group is a winner, let’s face it. If you want to be succesful in the dog-eat-dog world of Internetry, you have to be able to appeal to a wide variety of people; and, if the “Facebook Legends”: group is any indication, the best ways to do that are either to appeal to sources of mutual pride like “going to public school”:, or totally being from “NorCal”:, reminisce about old pleasures like “the Oregon Trail”: or promote new ones (Some people like the Daily Show? “That’s CRAZY”:, or just friggin’ whine about how you can’t find some “hott girl”: you saw, or you “don’t sleep enough”:

And then there’s the other end of the spectrum, the people who just narrow their scope a little too much. Like “Chinese People from Iowa”:, which lists, as examples of (non-Chinese) Iowans, Herbert Hoover (President during the beginning of the Great Depression), Jean-Luc Picard (Who, alert readers might note, is actually a fictional character, and, even if he were real, is from France anyway), and John Wayne (Alright, we’ll give them this one). Membership: Three. And this is a global group.

Or this group, dedicated to how “no one really knows their hometowns exist”: Membership: Two. Evidently, “only 16 people love Hungary”:, and only one person’s “best friend goes to another school”:

Another good way to ensure low membership: burn out the description of your overly complicated plan in the title of your group. “California should secede, OH AND ALSO, Northern California should secede”: Um, okay. Membership: 12. Or just be a dick and proclaim your intention to “constantly purge your friend rolls”: Membership: 2.
