I Don't Have a Facebook

To those of us who are "behind the times" and proud of it! 488 People

    It used to be ok for keeping on touch with

    people. Now it's just targeted advertising, drama and updates about how nice a coffee was. Fine people want to use it but it I hate it when people look confused or damming at me when I say I don't have one anymore. what is that about?

    I deleted as much as I could.

    Pictures, personal references, all I could! I don't like how Facebook has changed.

    I once set up a account

    but found it useless anyway I don't like the idea of putting my life online and it appeared to be for young people.

    Never have, and never intend to have it.

    waste of time. And time is all we have. I don't give a F#ck what you are doing. And even the people who do have it. Probably don't care either.

    I had it and then suspended my account

    for awhile. I reactivate my account and did reconnect with a couple of close friends, but ultimately felt that I really didn't care what others had to say, even my family members on there. I deleted my account about a year ago and don't miss it in the least.

    I don't have a facebook.

    My friend wanted me to do an account but I didn't. I don't know why they all like it so much. I heard some comments that I don't exist because I don't have a facebook. Well, I don't care ;)

    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...

    Cos facebook is gay and is full of online drama and is just too childish and is for teens. They have a lot of drama here too bit its calmer and more relaxed and chilled but facebook is one of the worst for drama. I used to be on it in high school and deleted it after I left...

    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...

    Deleted!

    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...

    and then found out how to delete it. It doesn't simulate me. I got bored using it and got tired of reading people's diary-esque posts. I have no desire to go back unless I start a business or something. Imagine what happens when people ask me about FB and the looks I get for it...

    My mom and dad wouldn't let me have an account.

    My friends tried to convince me to do it anyway and hide it from them. All they do is fight over stuff that gets posted. Plus they're always getting in trouble for stuff they do on Facebook. I think my mom and dad were right again! :)

    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...

    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 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.
