If you're my REAL friend, you'll share this bullshiat about ANGELS saving PUPPIES from OBAMACARE.

And if you don't something BAD will happen to you.

I love that Facebook has propagated the modern version of chain letters.

I just share pictures of cute animals. Does that make me a bad person?

Yes. You need to know this Internet thing won't take off unless we demonstrate its practical utility! It's for conveying important information, not pictures of your cat.

It's been nearly 4 years since I shut down my facebook account. Every article I read about Facebook since then has led me to believe it was a great idea.

I'm one of those non-cliche facebook people. I post pictures of cars, bugs, dirty-minded memes, etc and never talk about shopping.

Couldn't this mean that most girls like talking about chocolate, relationships, and shopping while boys like not talking about relationships but rather cars, video games, and all things relating to f'ing? I'm not sure where posturing needs to enter into it?
 
2013-10-03 07:26:02 AM
I've yet to see any evidence that suggests that stereotypes aren't based in some sort of truth. Sure, no one person is a pure stereotype, but these ideas don't form out of thin air.

I never have had a facebook account.  I always thought it was stupid.  I don't care about keeping up with the Joneses.

I read something on here a couple of weeks ago about people being depressed because everybody else's life was so much better than theirs.

Don't worry about that.  You can fake whatever you want on the internet and in reality their lives suck as much as yours does.
 
2013-10-03 07:34:46 AM
Everybody sticks together in these dirty little goddam cliques. The guys that are on the basketball team stick together, the Catholics stick together, the goddam intellectuals stick together, the guys that play bridge stick together. Even the guys that belong to the goddam Book-of-the-Month club stick together.
You never saw so many phonies in all your life, everybody smoking their ears off and talking about the play so that everybody could hear and know how sharp they were.

I have a facebook account and sometimes post information I think my friends might like/enjoy.

I also like seeing what some of my friends (with more active lives than mine) are up to.

I don't get all the hate.

Oh, and yes, there are a bunch of people that use it to preach or share endless "if you love XYZ, I dare you to repost this" images.  And I just delete them and realize they're not the people they used to be when we knew each other in the past.

To justify the idea that men and women have the same interests and only show different aspects of those universal interest because of societal influence. The fact that men and women might just be different doesn't enter into the equation for some people. Even in the most liberal, women friendly countries on earth those stereotypes persist. Makes you wonder why Iran's science engineering students are 70% female while Sweden only has a 32% graduation rate in the same fields. Obviously that is because of men keeping them down and not allowing them their own choices.

I've never considered Facebook. I am not an exibitionist, and, indeed, was raised and educated to believe that exibitionism is a personality disorder - so I avoid people who have it.

I hope someone talks about this on TV so I can tell people I haven't seen that segment, because I don't own a TV.

Thank you for sharing this deep thought of yours. On its merits, clearly something which could not be kept within a single moment longer.

Because they wanted to point  out the millions of people who presume that their life is so exceptional and interesting that it would appeal to the masses, which is stupid.  Nobody cares.

Cliché is a noun, subby, not an adjective. The word you're looking for is clichéd.

I disabled my account just over 5 weeks ago and it's messed up because there is a certain level of withdrawal that happens with that.  For a week or two, I'd type 'facebook.com' into my browser and just go the homepage without even thinking about it, but since I wasn't logged in, I didnt get to the newsfeed and then I'd purposely made it slightly difficult for myself to login.  I changed my password to a random string of characters and forgot it, so now I'd have to go through the whole 'forgot password', etc deal.  It wouldn't be impossible for me to log back in, but it'd require a couple of steps.

It sucked for a couple of days because people are just so used to communicating via facebook now.  I've noticed, though, in the last week or two, that more of my friends are actually connecting with me via actual normal means like email and text, and their email and texts usually start with, "why arent you on Facebook anymore?"

What's really odd for me is that I created an account almost immediately after the website went up (summer 2004) and barely used it until I was on a 3-week long work trip and bored out of my mind in my hotel room one night in 2008 and decided to check this website out.  Until then, I'd just log in to confirm friend requests.

But remember the our Facebook statuses are not about who we are, but rather about who we wish we were.

Absolute bullshiat.

Great article by the way.  Men and women behave differently, and you needed a study about social media to realize this?

In their defense, they need an outlet to express themselves now that they're not on Facebook anymore.

I'm sure not being on Facebook in itself is a cliché.

Having given up Facebook and crowing about it is definitely a cliché.
