I Don't Have a Facebook

To those of us who are "behind the times" and proud of it! 425 People

    So What's the Big Deal?

    I don't get how it works, nor why I am apparently supposed to have one. Whenever I ask some one what the point of it is- what purpose does it serve- WHAT DO YOU DO with it, I always get a dumb-a.s.s response like "you can talk to people" or something. Well, I have...

    Wait... Wha-- Where Did Society Go?!

    Then, one day, walking amongst the millions who have a cellphone parked in front of their face, I glance into one of the small glowing screens. It is then I remember that society was sucked into the black hole that exists within the internet - Facebook. Facebook - oh, the...

    Used To

    When facebook became popular at my school, everyone was telling me to get one. I didn't see the fascination with it. I broke down though and got one. They were all excited that I had at last. I never updated my status or uploaded photos. I rarely chatted with anybody. I didn't...

    I think Facebook has brought some of the worst

    changes in human behaviour I've known. Don't get me wrong, Facebook was a great idea initially and it's still great for people who use it for valid reasons. But the concept has been over exploited by the majority of people that assume you should be on it. If your not, your not...

    I Do Not

    I did and don't plan going back.The majority of people in this world does have a Facebook account and I'm not against it either.  If you like why not?  Facebook is one of the networks who are big.  My main thing is parents who open a FB account for minorities; eg: 14 years old...

    I had it for years and got tired of it.

    Mostly the privacy issues are what started pushing me. But then I sat back and wondered what I was really getting from it. And how little time I was really spending with friends. It's been almost a year and I don't miss it.

    I never really had a need for FB, and even though it would help me stay in contact with friends, I just never thought it was necessary =/ I also hear it sucks a lot of your time, and I don't have time to be sucked so I don't think it's a good idea anyway. According to the title...

    I struggle with an eating disorder and depression, so Facebook was absolutely the worst place to be spending time. Every time I'd log in, I'd end up comparing myself with others...ie. who looked thinner, who had more 'friends,' which statuses got 'liked' the most, and so on. I...

    Not Entirely True

    I do have a "professional" account, as it's pretty much a requirement in my line of work. However, you'll find nothing truly personal there, and I adamantly refuse to create a personal account. Pretty much all my friends have Facebook accounts, but when they talk about it, it...
