I've never joined Facebook, a "social network". Instead I joined Fark, an antisocial network.

Twitter is for learning to love people you'll never meet, Facebook is for learning to hate people you already know.

balki1867: 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.


If you were as boring and long-winded on Facebook as you were in that post, I'm sure most of your FB "friends" were relieved when you left.

I'm sorry. That was mean.

verbaltoxin: 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.


I've started using one of those local, artisinal televisions - you've probably never heard of it.

Plebian. My only electronic entertainment is a nickelodeon. Not the network - an actual nickelodeon. Made in Oregon by an commune.

Depends on how you use it, obviously.

When we moved here, we joined a couple of community groups for the area. People in those groups post some pretty good information that we would not have learned otherwise.

And cat pictures.

Dude, this isn't a Facebook-aholics Anonymous meeting, but thanks for sharing anyway.


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

Cold_Sassy: 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.


I guess people are just cropping out all the sadness.

jso2897: 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.


Why did you feel the need to tell us about this?

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'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.

/have to play COD Black ops now, and then basketball in 26 minutes.
