Facebook is obviously going the way of MySpace.

The moms on my Facebook feed are annoying as crap. Farmville, posting photos of their kids every day, daily status updates on their kids, and posting stupid ass images saying if you share it, some kid somewhere gets a kidney.

Good thing there isn't a relationship status function on Fark.

Does it count if they got to be moms because of Facebook?

Wait.... so you're saying people use Facebook?

Holy Moley.

I still, to this day, do not have a facebook account. For the life of me, I cannot understand why people would willfully give out so much personal information to hundreds of "friends". My wife has an account and has about 400 of these "friends". In truth, only about 20 or so are real friends that are close. I log into her account every once in a while to audit what information has been let out to the public.

A smart Mom or Dad has Facebook in order to monitor what their teenage kids are posting on their "public" Facebook account. When I was a Fb newbie I friended a few of my daughters old buddies and it is very obvious which ones don't have any parental supervision on Fb. I haven't seen anything worthy of Chris Hansen's attention yet but lots of language unfiltered by any sense of how this will look somewhere down the road.

Pintrest is evil, that is for sure.

It's like a giant sad, online scrapbook, filled with broken dreams, and recipes to soothe the pain of those broken dreams.

And meme pins, zillions of meme pins.

That is what the "hide updates" button is for. I also shove my family into another group.

Here is the key to facebook - don't give it any information. Facebook has my name and my e-mail address and thats pretty much it. But I find it invaluable to keep in touch with friends - especially those that don't live near me (and it keeps my family from bothering me). And its not necessary to "friend" everyone - I only have about 60 friends - all of them are real friends (or family). Others people I know just treat it as an address book that updates itself.

/facebook is only as evil as you let it be.

gingerjet: /facebook is only as evil as you let it be.


This. As a mother on Facebook, I can't even begin to say how nice it is to have a place where I can feel connected to my extended family in a non-intrusive way. It's been a great way to stay active in each other's lives that would otherwise be once a year contacts at best. Also, being able to keep in touch with old friends from high school is a nice touch. But between all my family and friends I only have about 65 "friends". That's more than enough.

Facebook must be open-minded about the statuses; one of my mother-in-law's friends is listed as both "Married" and "Interested in: men, women".

You need to be open-minded to have a bisexual married person?

Also, the number of people who don't know what "open relationship" means is scary. No the other word, hilarious.

"I don't have a facebook account" is the new "I don't have a tv"

If the kids have any sense, Mom and Dad (and relatives) are on the Restricted list, and the public profile is set to Friends Only

Who is seeking dates, yes. (I assume that's implied in the "interested in"). NTTAWWT. It wouldn't have surprised me if they'd have hard-coded married/engaged/etc. to equate to "not looking".

I never realized that specified that I was actually *looking* for whoever. Huh... good to know! Thanks!

Some people use "interested in" as in who they would be "interested in" to be friends with. I have a few male friends who have "men" as it despite being straight and it never occurred to them that was what it could be meant as.

Yeah not my Mom. She has gotten better with the whole internet thing, but she has been asking about getting "a facebook" LOL. Thankfully she has started to realize how goddamn annoying it is to receive a bunch of FWDs from other old ladies (and to not FWD them to me, at least), so YAY for progress??
