    Is it just me, or has Facebook lost it's novelty at this stage?
    I feel as though everyone on my timeline is just putting on a fake persona. No one really posts about what is "on their mind" anymore, they mostly just share videos and photos from other pages. In fact, almost everything I see on that website is a video.
    The style and layout of the website is also dull and depressing to look at.
    I don't feel connected to my friends at all on Facebook... if anything, I feel more disconnected.
    I've barely posted anything on there for a long while but when I have, I've felt like a zoo animal inside a cage being watched and judged by hundreds of menacing eyes.
    I deleted my account last night and made a new one where I'm now only going to add people who I actually like and am close to in real life.
    It's not the concept of having acquaintances and strangers viewing my profile that I don't like though; I'm fine with posting on platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, TSR, YouTube etc.
    Facebook is just different. I would delete it altogether but it is the only way I can communicate with some of my friends.

    Does anyone else have similar views?

    I don't like going on Facebook, I just hate the atmosphere of it overall.

    I think it's one of those things to look at when you've got nothing else to do tbh! Or when you're trying to look busy on your phone to avoid talking to people

    I don't know anyone that uses it regularly anymore. I think Twitter is still quite popular
