    facebook has, lets face it, taken over most peoples lives and it annoys me because i'm not the type of person to care about the site. but i know people who think of me as inferior if they see my facebook has less photos/less wall activity/less friends than theirs. its so silly and shallow. does anyone else get this?

    I avoid this problem by not using facebook at all.

    No.

    If they do, then they're not worth knowing.

    I have 1 picture of a dog and post once a month. I hardly use it, don't really like personal discussions being seen by others.

    I don't believe anyone could be that shallow... Maybe then if we were 13 yrs old. I don't have that much wall activity, I just comment other people's statuses and I try to have max 2 photos on my profile. I delete a lot of people who I don't talk to. People don't complain about it. Well some have but because I have had same picture for months in profile and I have cut and dyed my hair since the photo had been taken

    I've asked this myself several times.

    While I doubt anyone will not talk to you merely because you do not have a large number of photos/wall posts on your profile, it is unlikely that someone who is a very social person, will have hardly any activity on their profile.

    Nearly every teenager I know has Facebook. I don't have it though because I'd feel like my privacy was being invaded. I really don't trust the media and government. I'm smart like that. (:

    If I have more activity going on on my wall that someone else, I automatically feel a little bit better than them. But nobody discriminates against people who have Facebook but don't use it much...

    I don't dislike anyone because of it, but sometimes I see people with no wall posts, but lots of their own statuses, and no tagged photos, and just think aww because I feel sorry for them not having anyone to talk to.

    Don't think any less of them though.

    It depends on the content, if your statuses consist of tired/bored/doing homework/listening to XXX/comments about peasanty TV then that's a lot lot worse.

    I don't think like that at all, I think mostly the opposite. The people I know who have interesting things to do, have very little photos and status updates, and 1 profile pic they've had forever.
    Besides, some people write on walls and comments on stuff all the time, other don't. Ironically, those who write on my wall are people I rarely see or talk to, they're just those Facebook-people who love to do that. Those I see the most don't have Facebook. So it's in no way a resprestentation of real life.

    I've never really thought about it. Most of the things on my profile are on the 'Only Me' privacy option, so I must seem like the biggest loser ever to some

    I think the opposite really.
    It's like saying the people with less posts on TSR have more of a life than those who have loads of posts and have no life. :confused:
