    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...

    Everyone Eventually Regrets Joining Facebook

    Just get off it now. It's a time suck. It will make you feel bad about your own life. Go have a real friend. **** Facebook.

    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 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...

    Sick Of Everyone Else's Perfect Life!

    I am so sick of reading about the perfect vacations, perfect love lives, perfect job offers, and perfect new homes/cars/pets/whatever. Every day I have to read about how happy and content other people are. It is normal in life to have some disappointments, but you'd never know...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    It's Exhausting

    That's What Facebook Is All About.

    I am on Facebook. It is the only way I can stay in contact with certain people. I don't take it too seriously though, and have written a couple of outrageous things on it. My philosophy. Do it now before the censors and moral 'nazis' take over, and we are unable to open our...

    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

    Just Want To Spread A Little Positivity
