I can't understand why anyone would want a facebook in the first place.
I understand keeping in touch with people but really, if they are worth keeping in touch with, couldn't you do that with a little effort and a phone
or through many other means of communication?
Looking at facebook to me is like looking at a collective of every stupid, ignorant person on the planet.
Why i hate facebook:
*Facebook sometimes destroys peoples ability to have conversations in real life. Either they spend too much time there, or are always having a
facebook conversation on their phone, ignoring real conversations going on around them. These people are so obsessed with FB their life becomes a
shadow to it. Conversation is almost an art form, and if you don't do it enough, you lose that ability. I know this personally from my own
(voluntary) social isolation. Internet chat could never replicate the real stimulation you get from an enjoyable conversation.
*ANYONE can find you. Yes, you friended an acquaintance you used to know in Hs. Woohoo! Now prepare to never meet them in real life, and barely talk
to them at all. Was putting all your info in the internet, where the whole world can see you, worth it? Now all of your crazy ex gfs/bfs can find you,
stalkers, and your employer can look at your facebook. . Even with privacy features this still creates issues, and its not like people can't get
around them anyway.
*What the hell are people posting on there thats so damn interesting? Even if the posters are real friends of mine, the posts are stupid and
pointless. "I just took a verbal dump" Tim likes this.
Why do people think anyone cares?
*It makes people stupid. Life is short, why spend it on facebook replying to 500 word drama letters from your gf, reading chain letters from fat chick
with no life, or reading about peoples trivial posts? That time could be spent reading a real book (I know, old school), being creative, or just
bettering yourself in general.
*Being "facebook famous"
basically means being the biggest attention whore and having 1000s of pictures of your ugly mug making stupid duck faces
