    I am on Facebook (who isn't?

    ) but I find more and more that it seems so fake and unreal. There are very few of my friends who know what my life is really like, and due to the fact that so many family members are on there and so much can be shared I am reluctant to use it much these days. On EP because it...

    Ep Is An Open Environment

    I'm an active member on both the sites but I found that I can be myself here on EP. Facebook is good to connect with people you know but you cannot be very open there. On EP I can write anything I like and there are people who understand what I want to say and I can share my...

    Hello Everyone,I have just experienced something on Facebook that I thought I might write here. It's more of a Facebook double standard if I might say so. I find that it is better to ***** about life here than on FB.I mean that you can write about something that bothers you on EP...

    I'm sick and tired of trying to read someone's story or experience and having it disappear and be hijacked by a ******* ad for Disneyland or some such ****! I can't get it off the screen. I am unable to read stories, comments etc! Is that how it's going to be EP? I have to...

    Gaaaaaah, EP is better than FB. I mean, FB is soooooo useless (yeah I say that and I've got one -_-") Ok, you can post pictures and chat and "socialize" but… People are cool in EP. So EP is better

    Though I am very popular among my Facebook

    friends for my witty posts and status updates but still I think Facebook is not going to make my life any better so I have deleted my Facebook. While on the other hand everyday I learn something new from EP so I think EP > FB.

    No Shame.

    I admit it. I've started to use EP like FB. Posting status changes and commenting on friend's whiteboards...hell, I may even add some pics soon. And I feel no shame. Several years ago, I was so out of the loop and depressed in my miserable marriage, I had never even heard of FB...

    Facebook. I only go on to access my old photos. The less I log in the happier I am. Makes me think of the crazy stuff people post and how much of a disconnect there is from reality. It's hilarious when people post hundreds of pics/statuses of their lovers, then end up deleting...

    and find themselves... FB is a place where a person can get lost and become a number on someone's friend count.
