I 'm Starting to Regret Belonging to Facebook

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 344 People

    I have the dubious honor of being a very early

    member of Facebook and have therefor seen it throughout most of it's stages, and I've liked each upgrade and progression less than the last!

    I Deactivated My Fb Account

    Facebook is not good for paranoid people.  I was checking mine a million times a day in case one of my "friends" wrote something stupid on my wall.  After i deactivated it though, now I worry that people will think that I "deleted" them, cause that's a big insult in...

    I Had To Stop Going On Fb

    One of the reasons Is because while I was on there saturday a bogus antivirus tried to take over my computer. It was quite nasty because it corrupted my antivirus and I couldn't even get back on the internet. I had to restore my computer. That was the only way I could get back on...

    Hate All Of You People!!

    no one comments on my statuses (!_!) unless I'm moving away, go shopping, got married maybe?? ;p It's probably because I'm sort of close to people who has a clique of their own.. They're busy with them and I'm busy with just me.. I guess you need your own clique to get talking...

    Just Want To Spread A Little Positivity

    Every time I get on facebook I can't help but notice all the negativity! It's almost overwhelming for me. I feel like there aren't enough pages focusing on the positivity and beauty surrounding us in our every day life that aren't specifically focused on a particular religious...

    I've only been on Facebook

    for about 8 months and it got old a long time ago. At first it was nice to reconnect with old friends. Then it seemed that the only ones that wanted to actually communicate with me were married men trying to relive some high school fantasy now that they had bigger "balls". Men...

    It's Exhausting

    Does anyone else get tired of answering people's comments on pics? You post something, then 50 people comment and you feel like you have to comment back or at least like their comment. It's also difficult getting everyone's daily thoughts thrown at you as soon as you log on...

    I Just Deactivated My Facebook Account.

    I just couldn't bear the fakery any longer.  70 friends?  Ha!  Only a couple would even talk to me on the street, and none pick up the phone to see how I really am.  Write anything sarcastic, someone takes it personally.  Write anything self-depricating...

    Good For Reviving Old Friendships? Not Always.

    Facebook is allegedly good for renewing old friendships.  However, in the time I have been on there, I have had to take the unfortunate step of writing a former friend out of my life. She is a "former friend" because she ignored my Facebook friend request.  I have...

    That's What Facebook Is All About.

    Creepy Facebook Stalkers

    I think Facebook is a good vehicle for creepy people. They don't need to be brazen at all to facebook stalk you, and all they need is a first and last name. When I first joined facebook, I left my profile to be found by anyone. That was a mistake. I got two messages from two...

    I'm Really Close To Deleting My Account

    I really wish I hadn't joined FB. Right now I have most of my "friends" blocked because I hate to see how good their life is when my life is crap. I got nothing to post because I don't have a life. My posts would be nothing but me complaining about work. Who wants to constantly...

    I remember when Facebook didn't want my number,

    didn't care about my work history, and didn't force me into providing it information that I can't stand putting out on the internet anyway. Since when is it okay for a social networking site to be so intruding? Or am I the crazy one here? O-o

    I like Facebook. It's a great way to keep in

    touch with friends and family. At the same time though I find it depressing. Seeing all these people I went to high school with all their children's baby pictures, the nice houses and cars, the career of their dreams, vacation photos, etc. It just starts to get to you. And I...

    Where I went to High school?

    College? Work experiences? Where I have traveled? I'm sorry but this is a social networking site, not a resume or online dating profile. T.T I miss the old facebook. Back in '08 when it had buttons and banners and snowball fights... back when it was FUN.
