    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...

    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 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

    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...

    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...

    Just Want To Spread A Little Positivity

    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.
