    are we supposed to be excited by the fact that you've de-registered and congratulate you or something? use it if you want to use it and don't if you don't. it's up to individuals to use it for what they want
    tbh i wish people would stop acting like they're suddenly something wonderful when they stop using faceboook and that everyone who uses it is just wasting their time .... do what you want, no-one cares!

    I hate Facebook too.



    1. I joined your group I do not want a weekly newsletter about how many people care about atheism, I do not want to attend your event and I do not want to visit your sister website. I am so fed up with getting messages from you. Stop.

    2. I do not want to be bitten, kissed, tested, loved, poked, super-poked, vampired, warewolfed, gayed, de-gayed, sexed-up or any of the awesomely stupid apps you have added to your bloated profile and it now takes me forever and a day to load up my friend requests. Get a life and stop doing tests.

    3. Talk to people in real life instead of asking about 7 questions in each wall post. I know Facebook is useful to communicate with about little things but if you really miss someone that much ring them.

    4. This is too addictive. I highly doubt anyone cares that I am cleaning my room and baking potatoes but I wrote it anyway. Not as bad as poor Whitney though who actually updated this through her phone, this is too sad.

    5. A Snowball Experiment group? You know it works, you don't need to set up a group to prove that the more people who join a group then more people join.

    6. These photos don't make you look attractive and not everyone needs to see them.
    I rofl'd because it's true.
    For these facts I have never joined facbook/myspace ect ect and will only do so possibly for a uni group.

    The 90's had everything. pogs, tamagotchi's, yo-yo's, rubics cubes, fresh prince, rugrats, zap! (I could talk all day about TV in the 90's.), radiohead, horrible clothing but kinda nice. It was colourful and strange and looked wrong but there was something comforting about the simplicity and stupidity of the clothes.
    So yeh, maybe it's not facebook just 00's.

    ^ Erm, it was just a rant love, just you know expressing an opinion. My opinion, that has no basis in fact and really didn't require such an immature comment from yourself. Oh well.

    The pictures thing really annoys me. Girls especially do it a lot, put 232718941 photos of "me and my gurlies leaving the house", 5428839264 of "me and the gurlies on our way out...eeee!", 1236987923 of "me and the gurlies getting trashed + upskirt shots" and 118937475 of "me and the gurlies....almost passed out!!11"

    But then again, as people have said, it IS addictive to check people's stuff out!

    Oh God, and major annoyance: someone's tagged in an album, they look pretty rough in say 2 or 3 of them, and then in 1 of them they'll look quite nice. So they comment on the nice one saying "God I look rough! Lol!" Just to make sure that photo comes up on everyone's feed, so everyone can gaze at it admiringly

    It's a very self-indulgent tool designed to massage already inflated egos, but almost impossible to ignore. Even if you DO deactivate your account, a small part of you will be wondering what you're 'missing'. And it *is* handy for parties, pub crawls, etc.

    I hate facebook because it's a popularity contest and I'm not popular. That's why everyone who hates facebook hates facebook. Duh.

    yeaa facebook, its been a big issue with me and the bf, he is against it completly, hates the idea of people having 300 friends, people being fake, aquaintencies and people you didnt even get on with at school sending you friend requests. I agree 100% with this, it is pointless and show-offy, but I deactivated my account a few times and somehow manage to keep getting it back. I like to see how people have turned out and laugh at silly girls making a fool of themselves out clubbing. I never talk to people on it, so yeh its pointless.
    I deleted myspace and bebo years ago, and I WISH facebook had the option to permanantly delete your account, so that im not tempted to sign back in.

    <3 Facebook. Mainly because of how they manage photos, good tagging system etc... Better than Myspace and less intrusive ads =)
