This exactly my thoughts. I use it frequently, never udpate my status or anything but I go on chat sometimes, I'm active but then again I'm not active because I don't post a lot. 99% of my wall is posts by other people, and its not even half the size of those girls who have had theirs for a month or 2 and I've had mine for a year and a half now..

It's useful in certain situations, but most of the time it's just useless.

I had an account for a while, purely as a way for old friends I'd lost contact with to contact me. Once FB started adding "features" like letting other people decide what is on your page and adding personal information about you without your consent, I deleted what I could and then deactivated the account.

It was useful, but now it's just a liability.

100% this. People are constantly messaging my wife to take down pictures they were in and don't like because of fears people will get a hold of them. They're not even tagged in them and her profile is on private. Personally, if you don't like it, you shouldn't have been there in the first place.

For me, all of the interface overhauls really did it in. Like, Facebook was never very good, but it was leaps ahead of the shiny glitter lips at MySpace. But then they keep fooling with it. Like the crazy "Friends" it suggests. I think it includes pretty much anyone who happens to be in town, or passed through town, or even flew within a hundred miles of town.

Of course, all it takes are a few friends to ruin a place which was at least good to meet up online. Like people reporting on their latest dump, or that they watched something on TV, or the endless posts of blurry, low quality YouTube stuff that is rarely entertaining.

I think Facebook jumped the shark once they made a movie about it - curiously, Apple jumped thje shark when they made that movie about Silicon Valley. I blame Hollywood for making Facebook, and other things, lame...

do not understand. i havnt been in school for several years. but summer for me always meant more time with friends + more computer time and less sleep.

ahh good old days.


personally i dont understand how someone can go without regular access to a computer and internet.

but i guess myself and everyone on ocn are probably not typical people

Could be due to all their privacy related issues.

Being absent from the computer does not indicate that they went on and deleted their account.

I know I feel like facebook is getting horrifically boring. Facebook is a fad by my opinion. It might fade soon.
