Beerguy: Particularly when a "buddy" of yours that owes you $6500 bucks is posting pictures of new stuff he is buying and traveling without paying you back even one red cent.
ajgeek: Facebook is full of a tools to make your life seem better than it actually is, not the other way around.
Donnchadha: Is this a repeat? It sounds like it should be, but I'm not certainAnyway, the take home message is -- you live every moment of your life, including all the boring, uninteresting "poop is coming out" moments. Your friend's facebook feeds are just the exciting highlights. You only see the pictures of their vacations, not pictures of them doing the dishes.
HaywoodJablonski: If only. I'm subjected to boring meals, kid poop updates, idiotic "million likes" posts, idiotic conservative propaganda, etc.
Ima4nic8or: I cant imagine being so petty and self absorbed as to get upset if someone else has more "likes", comments, vacations or money.
Ima4nic8or: That is one of the gayest things I ever read. I cant imagine being so petty and self absorbed as to get upset if someone else has more "likes", comments, vacations or money. Probably one of the reasons I have never used facebook or any other social network (excluding linked in which sort of serves a purpose).
BumpInTheNight: Believe me the dozens of baby pictures and complaints about no sleep, stretched budgets and lack of down time really gets to me. Just yesterday one of my friends posted a fuzzy story about how to keep paying for daycare he had to take a second job, I almost spat my greygoose all over the patio around the resort's pool, I was so envious.

murdoch's_weeners: *shrug* So can sitcoms. Did you guys know: If you go to the same bar night after night, drink lots of beer and liquor and eat wings and fries and burgers constantly, there is a very SMALL chance you will come out looking like Neil Patrick Harris and getting laid constantly? True story!/just finished HIMYM season 2//nobody's lives are that cool///turns out TV is fantasy. And so are your friends facebook pages.
Raider_dad: I disagree with that , I use it to feel better about myself with all the posts of "I wish I could disappear from the world" "I feel like a failure" "Why do these things always happen to me" . My life looks awsome.
BlackFoltz: On the contrary, my FB friends make me feel better about myself. It's like watching Hoarders and realizing my house isn't all that messy after all.
stiletto_the_wise: How about just not using Facebook if it makes you sad?
Mawson of the Antarctic: I thought I read somewhere that the only way you can be depressed with Facebook is when you don't realize people are posting their "greatest hits" of their lives. They'll talk about the good things that happened to them and play down the bad unless there's a way to get something good out of sympathy. "Fishing for Complements" is what I call it.
Huck And Molly Ziegler: I am amazed by the number of otherwise intelligent people I know who have been sucked into the Facebook phenom.First of all, if you want to publicize yourself on the Web, pay honest money for a decent website.Secondly, why would you want to publicize yourself on the Web, unless "you" are a business or legitimate nonprofit?
