    Does anybody ever get people that start talking to them.... then when you talk back they don't respond? It's so annoying, it's like... why even bother talking to me in the first place? I only end up shoving you in a group that remains permanently offline.

    If you are a culprit, why do you do it? And also... shame on you :P

    Maybe um, they aren't there when you respond? Facebook unfortunately breeds very short attention spans, so if somebody doesn't reply within about 10 seconds or so you're usually off doing something else.

    That said, I generally try to reply to everyone, even if it's a couple of hours later .

    Yeah some people aren't glued to fb, but it is quite annoying, also, I don't know if this happens to others, but between me and one friend, sometimes what we typed to each other won't come up on the other end.. :s So basically we think one's ignoring the other but in reality, we did reply... it just didn't show up -.-
