    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...

    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 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...

    Just Want To Spread A Little Positivity

    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...

    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.
