Well, ya'know if you stay positive and forget about trivial things like "proper characterization," "Satire," and "emotional depth" watching new Simpsons episodes can be a seemingly enjoyable lie.
I still hate it whenever they say "It was pretty bad, BUT IT'S THE SIMPSONS SO 6/5"
To be fair, that analogy wouldn't be a bad way to describe a 'poor' classic era episode...!
I rather liked the episode and story behind the episode. It's also a nice parody of the Social Network. I think it would be ranked in the top 5 of season 23. I'm going with 4/5 on this one.
If you're in an Ally fort, bombs will be hurdled towards you by the Axis.
If you're in an Axis fort, bomb will be hurdled towards you by the Allies.
If you're in dead center in no-man's land, you'll be gunned down by both.
If you've read this, you'll have also made a connective parallel to the Internet.
I'm aware of that.
Good episode, I liked enough, the horrible end but I liked the main plot ...

Sorry for my english, i use the translator
BEFORE THE CHAPTER
Some of you said this was one of the worse chapter of the simpsons so i wonder... a parody of The Social Network written by J. Stewart Burns. How bad can it be?
First act was good, there were a couple of good gags as the family wasting the time of the guy in the car ("We totally wasted his time" "and ours!") and Ralph's messages in the computer the problem with the first act was most of the mall' scenes because we "really need to hear everything that happened in every store the family visited?". Lenny with the dolls was the worst
Was short and nothing was particularly good, I enjoyed the sequence with everybody in Sprinface but the angry nerds joke and skinner with charmels scene were boring
Was super short and boring.
I really liked the traffic accident scene and the ending of the MAIN PLOT. Both "extras in the end" were crap
A chapter which had a lot of potencial but it only use just a little bit of it. The main plot hadn't material enough to make a twenty-two minutes chapter and that's shame because for that, we had to bear a lot of long and unfunny gags
you are going to kill me because I am not sure how write in english

just watched this for the first time - my god, what a mess of an episode. they didn't have enough of a story for one episode? really!?
it was just a train wreck, perhaps the only redeeming quality was the animation of the story at the end, but even then that shouldn't have been there. i thought people were saying the show was getting better? like hell it is.
I hated this one when it first aired feeling its most unforgivable sin was how boring it was. I just re-watched it and was pleasantly surprised. It was still far from great but I found much to enjoy. It still had too many gags that were clear padding and ones that went on too long and the false endings all irked me(though the animation on the Dark Stanley-esque story was still great) but the flow of the story was better than I remembered. I'd definitely be willing to increase my initial score by a full point to 2.5/5. I'm not even sure this was the worst of the season anymore.
This episode is just a mess. How the hell was the episode so short, even with a long couch gag, the Olympics thing at the end, and the unrelated stuff at the mall, that it needed the extra story at the end? The actually story felt rushed anyway, maybe they could have spent more time on it. As it is, the plot was incredibly thin. Lisa feels lonely, so she makes a website that gets her friends, and then a bunch of bad things happen and her punishment brings things back to the status quo. Barely anything happened. And on top of that, this episode is filled with terrible gags. Not a single gag was actually funny. And the Olympics thing was probably the worst. First of all, how did Patty and Selma get to the Olympics? Having the Winklevoss twins point out how absurd that is doesn't justify it. Then, the Winklevoss twins start making out with each other? WHAT THE FUCK? Now The Simpsons is doing incest jokes? That seems like a terrible Family Guy joke, and it is in an unrelated "cutaway" scene to boot. I'm just glad that wasn't an actual subplot. Terrible episode. 2/10
