    I just logged onto facebook. A friend has posted 3 fucking pictures of her 1 yr old today about 2 hrs apart. Not a photo album, but three different unrelated pictures. I am so fucking tired of people posting about their kids on facebook. It's been said a million times but it is so motherfucking annoying the way people rub their kids in everyones face. Nobody cares about your kid, keep them to yourselves. :shit:

    I hide all people that post kid pics and political bullshit. Makes my facebook experience enjoyable without offending anyone.

    i quit facebook a while ago (my legit acct) after doing an experiment. for two weeks, i checked my newsfeed daily and decided that if on any given day i'm interested in just 10% of what my friends posted, i'd keep it.

    i deleted my account in two weeks. not deactivated. deleted.

    very smart of you. once you're on, it's hard to actually make the move to get off. the idea of logging into facebook over and over again only to be continually annoyed by facebook is standard, i think.

    facebook is full of pretentious people who can't help but brag about much better they are than you.

    Not much different from here except here we're anonymous for the most part.

    Facebook is getting a bit much, but it's nothing you're not already giving up and more. If you're online, you have no expectation of privacy. Emails are just notes you're passing around at school, and the teacher can read them any time she wants! Just imagine you have a big old key-logger keeping tabs on you...no foil hats; it's just the way it is in this brave new millennium.

    What Facebook is cool for is finding childhood friends, some of whom may be living in your same city and you didn't even know it! :ghp:

    Not a big Facebook person but I am on there. I use a nickname on it because I don't really want to be found. I treat it like an unlisted phone number. There are some childhood friends, former team mates, a few close friends, a couple of relatives. One of my longtime friends has not gotten the hint that I will not ever friend her. I barely tolerate her in life anymore; she has no such thing as a filter and spends half her week drunk.

    There is a group for my hometown that lets you announce info on the deaths of residents (classmates, neighbors, school teachers, etc). A teacher from our elementary school died recently. This is the classy comment my "friend" left acknowledging his passing:

    "Had Mr XXXXXX in 5th grade. He let us build forts in the classroom. We even were allowed to climb on top of the cubby holes, and study up there. Not to offend, but I think he was a bit of a pothead...bleary eyed in the morning. Best teacher ever!!!"

    :facepalm:

    I can honestly say I've never had a facebook account. The only thing that gets me is now some websites say "sign up with your facebook account" and they don't even give you another option to sign up. It's bullshit and none of their business anyway.
