What the f@%k!? What is the obsession. Seems to grow and grow every year. I remember back in 2006-07 that it wasnt nearly as popular...myspace seem to dwarf it 5 to 1 ratio...and ..now it just has overtaken the planet and now they have a box office hit movie to top it off. At least on myspace you could add designs and backgrounds and music/videos.

One thing that absolutely amazes me about this stupid bullshite site is the fact that it managed to bring people that would NEVER EVER use the internet.... on to it and somehow sucks them in. I saw people that virtually hadn't used a computer since 2001 and there they are...on facebook. It amazed me....I was shocked to see people/friends that had dissapeared from my life for years...only to rediscover them. (Thats not always exactly a good thing. (I made a facebook but took it down based on the fact that its full of shite and I just cant stand the fact that it interweaves everybodys life and thoughts together when privacy is something I desire more.) Sorry but if I want to send a message or a funny video to a person's page, I dont like the fact that their 200 friends can read or view it either.
Some people like it for the fact that you can find old friends, relatives, etc ...but then again people you dont want to find you or dislike can find you...vice versa...
Sure...you can deactivate your facebook at anytime...but it never gets deleted. They save the information for when you are ready to log in again (almost like they expect you to.) That pisses me off more then anything...if I want to remove myself from Facebook..I expect everything to be taken off or deleted permanently.

Either way...I f'n hate Facebook....my hatred grows for it everyday..
.I hope some of you hate it to. Thanks. rant and rave 2011.

Great Find Dr. M , hahaha.

Facebook seems to attract very attractive women . I met one such lovely lady on a plane trip, we were flying north from Miami. She gave me her FB
addy, and link to her pics. These women are the best asset of FB.
Ok, yes sure alot of them can be fakes, well still nice eye candy, none the less.

I still say " PtE is the Best!!!"

Count me as one of those that don't get (as in understand) this Facebook concept and phenomenon; last I heard, there are 600 million people using this site (which is why the punk who started this whole creepy thing is one of the richest guys in the world). My own theory is that it taps into some herd mentality of mankind, more so than usual. Those who don't often 'go with the flow' may resist this quasi-social manipulation and cultism.. maybe. Also, those who treasure privacy, like I do, may not be good 'candidates.'

I did join about a couple of years ago because I got a 'friending request' or whatever you call it from a 'real world' friend; I went on there a few times and 'friended' a few old high school classmates whom I never see much of otherwise. I stopped going on there after those first few times and have been on there maybe a couple of times in the past year. I don't see much point to it and, as mentioned in the first post, I find it creepy that a lot more people than my actual 'friends' can see whatever I put up there (which hasn't been much).

I guess there are various settings one can apply but I also keep hearing about problems related to that. I planned on canceling or deactivating my acccount but kept putting it off. But, it does suck you and almost everyone in somehow; a pretty good friend of mine who I became friends with a couple of years ago on a board similar to this one started asking me a month ago to friend him and then kept asking me even after I told him I wasn't really into the whole Facebook thing; that gets a bit eerie - it's like he's hypnotized to keep asking me even after I tell him I'm not interested... :wtf:

The creepiest thing, though, is that I get these 'friending requests' from people who I have no clue as to who they are - I don't think they're even friends of friends. Why do they want to be friends with me? They know nothing about me really (my info on the site is the bare minimum). :wtf: Why would someone want to friend a complete stranger, unless there's a sinister agenda? I also get these friending requests from what seems to be these foxy women - those 'too good to be true' deals - no idea who they are and assuming that their photos are fake. I get the impression it's the cyber equivalent of those real world cons where you end up beaten up, tied up in a closet and a lot poorer... :twisted:

In its defence, due to the lifestyle I led over the last few years, facebook allows me to keep in touch with people I have met all over the world without all the hassle of actually keeping up with them :)

I love how all you ever hear is people bitching about their privacy and yet 1/10 of the world's population voluntarily puts their lives on the Internet. Name, sex, zip code...yep, totally anonymity is yours on Facebook! Go ahead and Friend everyone. Make those snarky comments and post those expilicit videos on your site. Don't worry, no one will know it's you. That new job you wanted? No problem, employers would NEVER think to take 10 seconds to check your Facebook page. Cell numbers, e-mail accounts...no sweat. Only your friends, and their friends and their friends and their friends will know it.

Waiting for the big Facebook hack...

Mr Whit,

I could not agree more. People so easliy give up their personal info online, it is truly sad.
There is a website I recently joined, and at the bottom of the site when you register, they
instruct us not to post out our phone numbers, addresses, our work place, etc.....
etc... It is sad that it comes to the site having to tell people what is truly elementary ( ' Don't give your
information to strangers').

Z

I just joined Facebook. I have't used it much yet. I haven't put much information about myself on there yet. I hope to meet some like minded people who share my interests. I'll let you guys know how it works out for me.

That's my facebook page if anyone'e interested. Like I said, not much stuff on there yet. Will post more when I have the time. Anyway, I clicked on Like for the Facebook page for this site. Did it work? My name should be up there saying I liked it.

Like TZ DZ Fan, I don't have a facebook or myspace page either. PJ is our Social Network Butterfly. However, if you clicked the like button I envision it would show up on your likes list.

Oh yeah, by the way, there are privacy settings on Facebook, so only people that know you can see certain personal information. A lot of people make their own page private and it can't be viewed, unless they accept your friend request. I don't like the new look of the FB page, by the way.

Now a friend tells me that Twitter is more popular than Facebook and Instant Messaging is dead, as well as Myspace and e-mail is considered old fashioned now. I still like using e-mail though. I hate it when they try to force a new thing on us to replace something that was working just fine before. How about if it ain't broke, don't fix it? I still like e-mail and DVDs and single player video games, not online multiplayer ones. Maybe someday I'll own a high def TV, just so the sides of the screen don't get cut off with movies on premium channels, but I can also rent them on DVD from Netflix, but it's not a must, other than for that reason.

You don't have to give any info about yourself. You can also use your nickname, etc. And if you like various pages featuring "retro" TV shows and movies, you get lots of updated info in your wall.
