Yep, I'm the lonely one.  That's it.  Because I can socialize in person and don't depend on validation through people clicking a damned button next to things I say.

//Please click "Smart", thanks.

1. Stop making me say, "I want RECENT STORIES first, dammit, not some stupid 'Top Stories' algorithm"
2. Stop dropping gigantic garish ads in the middle of my feed

Fix your FB experience? Easy, 5 Better solutions:

1) Adblock. They're coming out with video ads, so be prepared.

2) Stop "Friending" everyone you come in contact with, mute everyone you don't want to hear from. The drama queens, the memesters, the people who post random photos with insipid quotes, the Rachel Maddow/Rush Limbuagh (pick your poison) wannabes. If you barely know them, mute or drop. If you know them, mute.

3) Unlike some stuff. Over 3 million people like Tide for some reason. Do you really want to give P&G free ad-space on your monitor?

4) Block game requests from people. A few people never stopped asking me to fertilize their farm or lawn or whatever I'm supposed to do. Block app requests, and things are easier.

5) Fix your privacy. Lock down everything you don't want people to see...and some might see it anyway. At the very least you won't have to worry about future employees Googling your name and finding pictures of your fertilizing your neighbor's lawn.

Every person I've ever seen who is popular on Facebook has good interpersonal skills. Being able to socialize in person isn't an ability that you lose once you create an account. The opposite, you get more opportunities to socialize in person.

Sure, you can misuse the site to supplement real interaction but that will just add to fatigue. People who know how to use it, can and do discriminate who they block or promote, that is what lists are for.


Nah, we know that frequent Facebook use is associated with narcissistic personality disorder.  People I know who stopped using facebook became a lot more pleasant to be around, within a few weeks of doing so.  Interesting people talk about ideas.  Boring people talk about people.

Also, the word you wanted was "supplant," not "supplement."

Oh look another thread where everyone either pretends they don't have a FB account and/or complains about features they can't be bothered to turn off.


/No, I will not get off your lawn.

This. When I moved a couple of years ago Facebook became a great way for me to stay in contact with my friends. Through them I met some other great people. I have no family on my list nor do I have any employers to worry about so my experience is simply what I make it out to be. I have a lot of fun with it during my down time and it's also been a great way to hook up well. I never got why people complain about what they see or "have" to deal with. Exercise some controls.

SevenizGud: thurstonxhowell: SevenizGud: How about intelligence tests prior to posting, and you have to have at least a 60 IQ?

There is an intelligence test. By friending people and then complaining about having friended them, you failed it.

I don't have a facebook account, Einstein. But way to prove my point.


So you posted a complaint about Facebook, a thing you don't use and displayed a fundamental misunderstanding of, and I'm the idiot?

My 16 and 19 year yr old kids say they rarely go onto Facebook anymore.  They say it's all Twitter and Instagram now. It's almost as if it's a form of behavior that develops among a large population and is collectively followed with enthusiasm for some period as a result of the behavior's being perceived as novel in some way. Then it's not cool anymore. Weird.
