    Facebook just causes too much unnecessary pain.

    Family that excludes you. "Perfect" ppl with their perfect lives and all the lies. It's a waste of my time. Except CANDY CRUSH!

    Just a bunch of people you never talk to

    anymore, trying to be your friend so they can secretly snoop on you. Everyone's so fake too. I have one but only to keep in contact with friends. A lot of them live far away and don't text that often. If I could, I would delete it all together.
