A friend of mine said I "needed" a Facebook account over a year ago, so I tried it out. So I tried it out and found that most people talked about their inane daily activities. Who cares if they are waiting in an airport or doing laundry? Does anyone else hate being connected all of the time? Not to mention the fact that you will be contacted by people you do not want to hear from anymore. And you must respond. Reject them, or just ignore them. Either way, it is awkward.
If you want to talk about something, start a blog.
If you want to contact me, email me.
I still do not understand the fascination with Facebook (or Twitter)...... and I am someone who grew up in a computer.
Was curious how many other people tried it but dumped it. W
Can you ever really delete a FB Account?
Facebook is a good way for the govt and others to spy on you. The great thing is when idiots say “oh we are taking the kids on a two week vacation.” It is great way to come home to an empty house.
Facebook is for insecure people who want validation - so they can feel like they are somebody.
Yes, facebook is simply a waste of time.
Re: insecure people
Exactly what I found. The inane conversations people have on Facebook would NEVER take place in real life.
That totally shocks me coming from you.
You need to jump through hoops to do it but it can be done.
That is another very annoying thing about Facebook.
By all means. Please just keep it to yourself.
Freeping is all I do online as far as social networking, OK that and email.
I might be (am) old fashioned. I just always thought it odd that people would want to put their lives on FaceBook. I’m too paranoid (hey sometimes they ARE out to get you) and private to do FaceBook.
I have had several friends ask me through email to join FaceBook. I refuse to do so. It’s like a cult.(semi-sarcasm)
I have yet to be assimilated to Facebook even though every holiday my sister tries to push it on me so I can view her photo albums.
Never had an account. Visited one site & thought it a waste of time, but I’m a misanthrope.
I actually like it because I can link youtube videos to it, or articles of a political nature and otherwise. Yeah people do go on about the private lives, and they should be careful:
You go on and say you’re having a great time on vacation...
and when you get home you find your place was robbed. Then
there was the young woman who had a ‘friend’ play a prank on her, saying there was a party at her house and all
Of course you’ll find with FB once you post stuff about your politics you’ll find the friends you have who
disagree will get on your case about how silly you are, etc.
But it can be good if done properly.
It is not really deleted, it is deactivated...you can reactivate if you log back on...maybe there is a time limit, say 3 years until they actually delete inactive FB accounts.
It’s also not very dynamic in terms of it’s interface and capabilities.
Want to attach large images in a private message? Forget about doing that.
No, I love mine.
I found a half brother and sister, hooked up with old friends from high school, interact with fellow conservatives, and annoy libtard pages until I get kicked off.
Actually, there is a way to permanently delete it. It is several steps and you cannot log in for two weeks.
But it IS permanent. Not easy though.
They make it far too difficult.
Never had one to delete. Too much like voyeurism.
