What someone says and what they really mean can be two very different things when it comes to Facebook…

I don’t use teh Facebooks, it’s so… high school.
people still use facebook?
I de-activated my account yesterday.
Facebook is huge time waste
I’ve from the old school days of computers before they were used to connect you silly humans, so when it comes to the social aspect of the interest aside from email, forget it!
That Facebook is like cancer – almost every website is infested with this silly “like”-buttons.
Fortunately I did not fall prey to this disease and I won’t in the years to come.
Simply got better things to do.
It’s about the ‘Plus’ man.
I also haven’t fallen into the social media trap; I’ve better things to do with my time. Email works just fine.
Yes, Facebook is a cancer — a pox upon our society. I fell for it once, just so I could look at a friend’s pictures. (BTW he was a human body friend, not a Facebook “friend”.) From that moment on, my email in-box was flooded with friend requests from hundreds of people I had never even met in any way shape or form.
I deactivated my account. BUT…(and this is a big but) the web sites are so full of those stupid “F” logos and “like me” requests, and so many require Facebook membership just to forward or reply to an article, that half my communication is cut off, Iike I don’t exist if I’m not on Facebook. AND every time I inadvertently click on something associated with Facebook, or accidentally scroll over something, I am redirected to the Facebook sight where I am strongly petitioned to reactivate my account.
Then my inbox is flooded again with stupid requests.
Now, I ask you all, does anybody know how to actually CLOSE a Facebook account? That is, eliminate it, wipe it out, Control-Z it? I would worship at the feet of anyone who could tell me how to get Facebook out of my life altogether.
facebook FOMO….get over it !
I created a Facebook account about two years ago and posted a very simple cartoon face I made using Microsoft Paint (it’s basically 3 circles and a line for a mouth). But after I created that FB page, I NEVER USED IT! I did it more as an experiment to see what would happen. And you wouldn’t believe all the spam with the countless idiots who always want to “friend me”. People I never even heard of! It’s as if they never heard of chat boards or anything. You’d think people would leave someone alone who’s email address starts with “go_f__yourself…” Then again, that’s probably WHY I get so many friend requests – it’s probably all PORN related!
So I agree, Facebook SUCKS (not necessarily in a good way either) and is a huge time vampire!
Y’all be haters! Just like my page, it’s the same thing.
You mean like IRC chat? Didn’t that end with Talk City, years ago?
For my part, I never trusted Facebook. And given its never-ending series of privacy issues, it seems my intuition is correct.
facebook…what is that?
never going to join that crap
