I started a facebook about 2 years ago just to share pictures with a loved one that was far away. He got to see videos of his child walking for the
first time and all the other things he may have otherwise had to wait a few weeks for "snail mail".
However, now my mother has it. My Aunt Susan, Aunt Carol, sister, brothers...cousins I didn't even know they liked me, and countless other people. I
add them at first, and eventually weed out the ones who contribute nothing. I have less than 50 friends, however my older sister has over 300 and
constantly does the "omfg so this driver cut me off and now I'm p'd off. " and 46 people comment or "like" it.
and very few things that I
post actually get commented on...I'm fine with that. At the end of the day, I have pictures from 2 years ago that would otherwise be gone,
considering the original computer I had has since bit the dust...
The apps are what really chap my rear. I ended up deleting all apps and blocking requests from anyone who might even think about asking me to send
them a bale of hay/fish food. At first it was cute and fun, then I found out people actually pay money to buy fake virtual items...it's ridiculous to
me, and off they went. My husband does not have one because he has to have security clearance, and why does he need one now that I have one? We share
it, post pics, and mutual friend/families see it.
I have a 16 year old cousin who knows nothing but facebook...it's sad. My sister recently made a profile for her 6 month old son so she could share
more pictures....and keep HER page about HER. I have seen people make profiles for dogs, cats....whatever. Just don't ask me to care, and don't get
upset when I "unfriend" you! It really irks me that a friends list=real life!!!!
