    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...

    "Attention World!" - a Plea From a Non-facebooker

    Hello, world. If you don't mind, I would like to make an announcement about something that you don't seem to understand: I am 17 years old and I don't have a facebook. No, that doesn't mean I'm confused or have any screws lose. It doesn't mean I'm an anti-social...

    No Fb

    I was on FB and I don't regret having deactivated my account.  Facebook wasn't for me. Many people say being on FB, everyone knows your life and so on.  When I was part of it and now that I'm not, I still hear about it.  People telling me, OMG this girl is always...

    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 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 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...

    Never Felt The Need

    I had a Facebook account for about 2 months are so, then deleted it. I didn't delete it because of some drama it created, nor because I felt it signaled the end of society, but because I just never really felt it added anything to my personal life. I'm the kind of person who...

    I Don't Need It

    I get everything I want on EP or the corresponding website, so why do I need a screen that is so incredibly easy to steal information from - or lie on? I know a fifteen-year-old who claims to be twenty-one on Facebook and is looking for women. Not GIRLS - women. How many more...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    When I had a bf, he shared his FB with me, just so I can peek in and see what happens on FB. Now that I am single and can have my own, I dunno, I just don't feel the need to have one. I think people just pass sayings to each and everyone's walls. And I don't think I want to be...
