    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Facebook is like the attention seeking ***** of

    the internet in my opinion. I enjoy having genuine connections with people but I honestly don't like seeing the thoughts of people all the time. I'm tired of reading about what people have for dinner or who came by to visit or, even worse, why I should like this post of Jesus or...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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 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...
