    Basically, I have held off the advances of all my friends who really want me to sign up to Facebook.

    I have also been told that it is a necessity for social arrangements at uni etc. by older siblings but I want to maintain with my stubborness.

    Any advice? x.x

    Join, it is actually pretty useful for organsing events and gatherings, which practically all I use it for.

    Don't be in the "I'm not on facebook because of cool and sophisticated" boat.

    Nah not worth it. Most of the people I have on it only go on it for the stupid games (I used to but they are too boring now)

    Facebook is pretty useful for organising / managing events but, apart from that, it's annoying as hell and consumes far too much of my time (though I'm not sure how, when sod all happens on there - bar people whining about life). :erm:

    To be honest with you, I think my friends have forgotten there are such things since they all signed up to Facebook. I literally don't find out anything from my friends (and some of my family) prior to it being published on Facebook, haha. :rolleyes:

    If you don't already have it, I really wouldn't bother.

    I was in a similar situation, made an account about 6 months ago and deleted it last week. I think you'll come to the same conclusion if you do sign up, but if you want to find out for yourself then go for it
