I don't even own a Facebook.

What's a Facebook?

Seriously, why would anyone be so stupid as to post their personal information on the internet?

Who says you have to post anything on the Internet to use Facebook or any other social networking site?

Looks like a Plague Inc. virus spread.

I for one welcome our new Facebook overlord.

Huh, I didn't realize Orkut is losing to Facebook in Brazil and India. Sucks for them.

Also, I'm glad that the Republic of Moldova is holding out against the Facebook onslaught. We're rooting for you, Odnoklassniki!

No love for Hoffspace?

It saddens me to know that I'm a part of this statistic because I use Facebook pretty much only for a profession-related group which dumped their forums for a Facebook Group.

Chan brings Zuck to meet her extended family in Shanghai. "What do you do?" they ask him.
"I run the most popular website in the world," he responds. So they plug "Facebook" into a browser, and nothing pops up.
"You're a fraud! This Facebook doesn't exist!" they reply.


Now I don't care who you are, that's funny. I think.

Sure Moldova is still using Odnoklassniki, but Transnistria is definitely using Facebook now.

So QQ became Qzone? I guess the Chinese didn't want to appear to be crying to the rest of the world.

Hmmm. There is a difference between having a FB account and actually FB on a regular or even semi-demi-hemi basis.

I've got a feeling that FB only has 10-15% active users.

If you're in Transdnister, you'll be using Sheriff Connect. Well, healthy people will, anyway.

Is this the thread where we hear about people who don't have Facebook accounts, cable, read non-fiction books, and only drink PBR?

Wow, I didn't expect Best Korea to lack social networks.

Depends on how you define "social network". Livejournal is still huge in Russia, and is definitely used as a social network (including by people who know each other in real life).

But how much is real? And how many accounts are active?

Every business seems to have a Facebook and Twitter account these days.

Hey, Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter. We'll soon have more "friends" than customers. Woohoo!

It wasn't very large, there was just enough room to cram the drums in a corner over by the Dodge. #JoesGarage

How many of the accounts are bogus? I've thought about creating a Facebook account before - just not in my real name. I never did, but I bet millions of others have.

And how many are dormant accounts? How many people signed up and just never did anything else with their account?

Most of my friends claim not to have a Facebook account. I have their phone numbers and e-mail addresses and even actual physical addresses.

/rant, rant, rant...I wish Facebook would die.

I have no use for Facebook. I use FriendFace.

I was forced, with great effort, to establish a Fb account because my employer has one and I have to post things to it occasionally.
I could NOT for the life of me understand why I couldn't just be given a user name and password to access that account and do there what I had to do. No, they told me, you HAVE to be a Fb "user" yourself.

So I have maximum privacy settings, no "friends" and I never post anything. Still hate it. The whole operation seems slimy and overbearing.
