    Facebook Took Away Any Chance Of Me Ever Having Real Friends

    I'm sick of having digital friends. I'm sick of trying to fit my life into sound bytes, trying to make them interesting enough for people to "like." Facebook. I hate it. No one calls. Ever. No one emails. How can you have a real conversation with someone? How can you be there for...

    Hurtful Comments

    Sometimes people can be unnecessarily rude. It probably isn't anything personal, but it makes you feel bad and can ruin an otherwise perfectly good day or a relationship. I just wish I knew how to handle it. I know sometimes you can't tell exactly what people mean through...

    I Deactivated My Account

    Lately I have been noticing the ridiculousness that it Facebook. Personally, I think Facebook has too many features. Everyone knows exactly who you are and what you are doing where.. People posting about their kids and their bad parenting. Its like an online Journal where you can...

    Good Riddance.

    I deactivated my facebook profile about twenty minutes ago. It was a long time coming. I honestly think that, for people like myself who suffer from depression and anxiety issues, facebook is one of the worst things to be involved with. It makes you incredibly paranoid and...

    ' I Don't Talk To Strangers, Sorry '

    I was on Fakebook checking my notifications and stuff until some unknown guy sent me a friend request. We had abt 50 mutual friends so I accepted the request thinking that this guy maybe wants to know me. The next day I saw his name in the chat window and I said 'Hi' he responded...

    I hate Facebook, its more restrictive,

    forcing things on people, and most things that get reported, don't get deleted even though they go against their guidelines. Wholesome nudity is not aloud, but sexual things are, no matter how strong they are. If you were to report a group for sexual content, they would delete...

    I deleted my Facebook (deactivated) today.

    I have been a member of facebook for years at this point. I had a bad feeling about it from the very beginning. I used to like myspace a lot more because of the blogging and having the ability to show your creative side and make friends easier. But as time went on, it seems as if...

    Facebook Is Not Real Life

    I used to have a facebook and got rid of it as of a few months ago, and let me tell you, I feel soooo liberated beyond belief. I feel like so many people use it for the wrong reasons, as a bragging right rather than using it for what it is intended for, sharing news worthy...

    I quit using Facebook cold turkey August of 2013

    and haven't looked back since. It was becoming an addiction and never made me any happier when I logged on. I was stalking my (now ex) boyfriend's daughter's mom, getting into my boss's business, and comparing my measly life to the golden lives of all my friends. I saw girls...

    It really does seem a pointless website to me.
