After Facebook launched the creepy facial recognition feature that had users freaking out, it's no wonder the social networking giant was voted the No. 10 most hated company in America.

To put this snub into context, the only companies that are more hated than Facebook are airlines and MySpace.

That's right. According to Business Insider, the Palo Alto-based company was despised only slightly less than the nearly obsolete MySpace, which has been in a downward spiral since the birth of Facebook. MySpace was No. 9 on the list, in part because of "bad interface," while Delta Airlines was No. 2 and Pepco scored the No. 1 spot as the most hated company in America.

So you wonder, what's less abhorred than Facebook? You might not believe it, but your very own electric company, PG&E, which is responsible for the San Bruno fires last year is still more popular than Facebook, which just announced its now has 700 million users.

The America Customer Satisfaction Index shows Facebook scored 64 points out of 100 while YouTube scored 73 and Wikipedia scored 77.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
