People Without Facebook Accounts Are 'Suspicious.'

I have a facebook page.

I found Facebook to be a giant waste of time. I don't care who is dating who, what my friend's girlfriend had for brunch, or how high you scored on a Facebook game.

I don't care if not having an account makes me suspicious. That is like saying those that don't go to a fast food restaraunt regularly are suspicious.

Not having a facebook account means you didn't voluntarily sign off on an unlimited search warrant on yourself - with no specific list of things to search for. So you must have something to hide if you want the government to have to go through legal channels to snoop on your stuff. Right?

While they are the most obvious - .gov must be scared because of their stock price (oops, PPT to the rescue, wrecking my short) - I'm sure most here know that .gov has discovered it's legal for them to buy records that it would be illegal for them to collect themselves. So, credit agencies, google, amazon, netflix....it's a long list, FB just being the easiest one for everybody - but us.

fb was the only way to connect with extended family- old friends and co-workers.

At least for me. I am on now 2 years. I know much more about the bunch then I did before.. and vice versa.

I also have met more local people this way. Even some neighbors are on my friends list.

As a result- alot of news hits there before even the blogs- because eye witness actual participants post.

Sales, traffic delays, crime alerts- that pertain to ME- go on- with out for the most part wasting my time with stuff I dont need to know.

When I see in person people I knew years ago- it will flow so much easier because the what have you been up to- what is your life- is already briefed- so then you can cut to the chase- and the face to face is more inspiring.

Much of my family is out of state-

So far- fb- and the Internet in general- have been a plus for me. In fact- my internet skills are what got me the house I am living in. Otherwise- I would still be a renter.

I am the typical guy that talks 10 words to my wife's 1000 words; just one of the many forms of comm that I suck at. I don't have facebook and my humorous response when it comes to facebook is that facebook would be just one more method of communication for me to fail at!

Even late-adopter Bearing has a FaceBook account. A friend of mine from LONG AGO (from small-town South Carolina) found me via FB.

But, I mostly use to it plug my blog...

I am in that EXACT situation, it's the only reason I've considered going back to it. But I told the family members who are hopeless social media addicts to stay on top of emailing...they do, occasionally.

Fuck Facebook....

I'm to the point where I send out an email to myself and BCC a bunch of family/friends to give an announcement that I want to be read quickly and understood without a bunch of 'likes' or gossip posted underneath some short character-limited drivel on FB.

I was on FB once - for about a week or less. Total waste of time.

If people used the time they spent watching TV and sharing drivel on FB in doing something useful, they could learn a second language, get an on-line degree, or go paint some senior's house. Just about anything. I know people who are FB-aholics who can't carry on a face-to-face conversation if their next meal depended on it.

We have become a truly sound-bite society that can't handle a speech that is over 45 seconds, only look at pictures if they are moving, and don't know how to interact in a personal manner with friends or strangers.

Sad. Very sad.

I am friends with 2 former bosses. It is one of the highest forms of respect- to have worked with someone for years- and still- choose to banter with them.

I see most of you guys have guns and do not have facebook pages just like Holmes and Breivik. You are all potential mass murderers!

I have been unable to force myself to allow FB to facilitate someone stealing my identity.

I guess I must have something to hide if I value my sterling identity more than I value the potty mouths of mindless idiots.

My solution to facebook is to have an account and add your friends and family but I keep my page empty of any information besides my name. You are in touch with your social contacts but hopefully, give up very little information.

Don't need FB

I have real, flesh-and-blood freinds. I love that car commercial where the girl is sitting at a computer, talking about how her parents only have 16 freinds. While this loser is looking at puppy pictures on FB, her parents are out mountain-biking.
