    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...

    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...

    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 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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
