I know this isn't completely my idea. Hence the title "new facebook gif". I simply wanted to make a newer, and possibly funnier version of the .gif that you guys might have seen before (the one in comment #3). Half the joke is that it's a slight spoof of the original.
But I did literally record myself scrolling through my news feed on Facebook with Fraps, edit and render in Sony Vegas (made the names a little harder to see), and convert the whole thing to a .gif with a program I downloaded.
So, yes, I did make it myself completely. If you think that the fact I got the idea from somewhere else alone makes it not worth thumbing, then so be it. But I did actually put effort into making this entire thing from scratch.
