Spend more time studying whilst getting distracted by something as pointless as the Daily Mail.

I would be indifferent.

I haven't been on it for over 2 minutes for 3 months or so.

I'd probably collect more peoples phone numbers... it would be quite a refreshing change really.

I hate facebook. I know a person who spends all of her time besides sleeping on facebook. It's very, very sad.

I'd feel a bit isolated for a few days then I'd stop caring. I don't use Facebook anymore much, I just check it every so often, read a few status updates which doesn't take long, and move on to other things. I probably spend less than 10 minutes using Facebook on an average day. Forums take up FAR more of my time.

Wouldn't really bother me, if anything it'd probably make life a little better, Facebook has taken away social interface. You've got more chance of being asked on a date over Facebook chat or email than having a guy actually come up to you and ask

I'd ****ing be happy. I hate those sissies that post every single ****ing thing they do ("I peed <3:*xoxo"; "I ate <3:*xoxo" ). What the hell happend to instant messaging or e-mails? ****, I'm so outdated that I prefer to actually talk to a person rather than "liking" their stupid comments.

I would have more calls, which is far better but everybody is too fu***** facebook-addicted to understand it.

i think initially i'd be a bit irritated because i use it for pictures, staying in contact with friends who live in other countries etc, but i think i could get used to it i stopped using it for like 2 months during exam period and i felt less under pressure to always be replying to notifications / messages.

also i think it's very easy when using facebook to fall into this trap of thinking that everyone cares about what you're doing at that moment in time, or what time youve woken up. like i know people who post at least 5 totally pointless statuses in the day.. :/

plus there are other more sociable ways of staying in contact with people who live far away from you - like skype

When i get home from school or the gym... the computer's the first thing i go onto - TSR, Facebook, Flickr. I spend most my night on there - a side for homework. If not i usually end up playing on my Xbox 360 or something. This all gets me very easily distracted from my revision and therefor means i get naff all done.

I think if facebook went down though, everyone would just revert back to myspace or a previous Social Networking website that they used before hand. I would probably try and resist signing up to any of these so that i could get more work done and better my grades. I definately agree with the daily mail when they say you could better yourself by one or two grades. I really ought to be doing this, i'm just easily distracted. However work experience I am on this week has given me a great wake up call into getting my backside into gear.

A combination of nothing and maybe joining another social network site. As well, my social life wouldn't change without it, though I would potentially lose contact with some people who live further afield - though I guess there's email and texts/calls...
