He set up his account as a fan page, not as a personal account.

He doesn't understand how FB works, therefore he is mad.

My feelings for Facebook fluctuate.

Usually it just bores me. I do not farm. I do not fling. I have yet to know if I have aspergers tendancies, because I refuse to click that link that lets them in so I can find out.....

Sometimes it really frustrates me. I use it so rarely that I never get the hang of an interface before they impose a new one on me. So I'm pretty much handicapped in there, wondering how to navigate.

I also don't like the moral dilemma involved with feeling I have to accept someone as a friend. And have actually lost a friendship over politely asking someone to stop sending me her entire list of 1246 friends as potential friends for me to accept. Why would someone do that???? Does she view this as a contest that I'm clearly losing with my piddly 46? Fortunately she never meant that much to me anyhow, so it wasn't a great loss... but it still offered a couple of days of perturbation.

But everytime --- EVERY TIME --- I have gone in, completely decided that the time has come for me to nuke the whole business, some half-forgotten blast from the past is blinking there, waiting to make contact again - making me smile. And so on it goes.... Letting it live for the odd spark of pleasure of the memory of something past.



Mostly though I'm pretty successful in totally not thinking about it. That works for me.

If there were no Facebook, how would people I barely knew in high school get in touch with me so they can tell me how great their home business and/or religion is?

i made a second facebook page that i like a lot. i just post neat links all day long.

my original, regular facebook account is okay, i guess. it's done neat things like put me in touch with more of my family. it's also done really annoying things, like put me in touch with more of my family. ;)

i like how facebook sells off my info to the highest advertising bidder. makes me feel like a special commodity. high demand, you know, it feeds the ego. :p

i gave up any illusions of privacy on the internet a long time ago. if it's online, it's going to be public sooner or later. i don't have a problem with this. i think privacy is fast becoming an outdated concept, anyhow. but i guess that's a conversation for another place or time. :)

facebook is a good way to stay in touch with people whom you want to stay in touch with. but don't worry facebook haters, it will be replaced with something more innovative and invasive sooner or later. :shock:

Exactly my thought.
Someone will do it better.

Everything about it is invasive.
I don't have an account.
I actually feel more secure on black hat forums than bookface.

I think all it would take to turn bookface into today's myspace is to provide what they don't.

I think FB is starting to decline. the amount of spam apps, and if you click on this all your friends will get a message to click on it as well apps, is just the beginning of the decline. A decline into what? i don't know....

I presume that some large multi national company will build what they think is the next greatest social media site around, just to have everyone use something completely different.

but I'd be willing to bet that FB won't be around in a few more years.

I don't have a facebook. People are actually mad that I don't have one, and keep trying to get me to make one. People are too crazy and addicted to facebook. They start making it their lives. I feel so free without it. :D

Damn, y'alls old.

I find it very useful- most of my friends are on it; parents, sis-in-law, niece & nephews; friends up & down California and across the US from coast to coast, north to south; England, Scotland, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Argentina, Mexico...... (real friends, not facebook "friends", though I have plenty of those from being a club photographer)

It's a very functional way to keep in touch in that "nothing important" sort of way & stay part of someone's life. Things that don't warrant a phone call or are just "blah blah", but are really nice to hear from someone you don't get to see often. It's just a way to keep in touch. It's also a way to go look at a friends pictures at your own speed instead of theirs.

I've also found amazing lectures, new music, interesting articles.... my god, it's like being on here.

Love FB. It's the most useful networking tool (insert you're a networking tool comment here) invented since the telephone, IMO.

You still control your privacy on FB, I never get what people's big deal is about this. People who have criminal records that can be simply dug up on the open internet are worried that someone's going to use their FB interests in aggregate marketing surveys. Silly.

"This study reinforces the public speculation that over-engaging in websites that serve to replace normal social function might be linked to psychological disorders like depression and addiction," added Dr Morrison. "We now need to consider the wider societal implications of this relationship and establish clearly the effects of excessive internet use on mental health."

I love these studies! It's like a mad-lib. "[insert new activity sweeping the country] is linked to [insert something bad]." Followed by, "we should research this more."

I like the bookfaces. It allows me to keep in touch with friends all over the world with a simple enough interface that can engage computer savvy people and those that use Internet Explorer.

Since privacy is not a problem for you, why not post your social security number, your birth date, drivers license info with photo ID here on eplaya and prove to us that this is no problem?

Hyperbolic strawman.

FB doesn't ask for that info, you can place it if you want but also suppress it.

is that a challenge, or are you just trying to prove a point?

i use my real name for just about everything i do online. it's not hard to find me.

really, when you're talking to the <16 or so demographic, the concept of privacy is seen as... quaint. old fashioned. something people's parents babble on about. EVERYTHING is online and in real time. that's what i was referring to when i said that privacy is becoming outdated. sorry i didn't elaborate, i was trying to stick to the original point of the thread. my bad. :)
