I'm too busy living my own life to spend it following others'.

The Evil That Lies In The Hearts Of Men: Slaxl: and another 10 percent said the content wasn't relevant.

When the only content is your friends that seems like a bullshiat answer. Either they have no friends, so there's no content, or they hate their friends.

A good portion of the content in my newsfeed is adverts which Facebook may think are relevant to me but I don't.

Most of remainder is from two or three friends who, while decent folks to have a drink with, spend a lot of time spamming crap on their Facebook page.

/I use it as a glorified e-mail service


Firefox + Adblock Plus = what ads?

I am openly ashamed of how much time I spend on FB. However, I do use it for my business some, and without it, I seriously would not know my cousins as well as I do as we are on opposite sides of the country. This is a good thing, since the one I thought I would get along with turned out to be a slightly annoying hipster who majored in philosophy, while his twin sister is the out-doorsy one who shows me awesome pictures all the time. I do like the hipster's gf a lot though, she's cool.

I've had my FB since about 2004. I don't post much, and there are very few pictures of me on there, none of which I have uploaded. I think there are maybe 15 people that show up in my feed and that's either close friends, or immediate family.

It has its uses as it lets me see what my family is up to, and since I have a sister with severe depression and social anxiety, it's the easiest way to contact her. (She prefers I leave her a message she can answer on her own pace, then call her and put her on the spot).

All in all FB has brought great utility to my life. However, and this is an important note, I am not an idiot.

Plus it's useful for organizing DnD games.

My wife's friends post bikini pictures during the summer. Yeah, I'm staying on.

Once again. Whining about facebook is a million times more annoying than facebook itself.

I permanently deleted my account several weeks ago. Not because I was using FB too much, but because the integration of Facebook accounts in more and more site's commenting systems kept reminding me of how utterly stupid and narcissistic its user base is.

Remember kids:

Oh, and +1

That'd be the third for me.

About two years ago, while feeling much more ill than I was willing to admit at the time I woke up with my memory gone. Total amnesia. Luckily I recovered the essentials quickly but as life experiences returned the memories were always painful. So I stopped trying and don't allow myself to think about it anymore.

Now, with memories of friends gone and the emotional connections along with them, I find that I honestly cannot be arsed to even pretend to take any interest in the sorts of petty bullshiat they post on Facebook. So I don't use it anymore.

And I'm better off for it, so by the way I do recommend a bit of amnesia to clear house.

That sounds like a good idea? How do I get in on that?

I think it was a Cracked article that mentioned how hilarious it is that people get frothing-mad on Twitter considering you have to actively seek out and follow whoever's post you're commenting on.

Subby doesn't seem to know the difference between facebook and myspace.

If posting a few baby pictures on there keeps my mother in law from visiting just one time, I'll sign a pledge to use Facebook until I die.
