    If you mean "common" then yes, everyone uses it. If you mean "crude", I don't think so.

    If you like it, use it. If you hate it, don't.
    No one is forced to use it.

    Facebook is merely a webpage available for people to use bits of. So it is only as vulgar as the people who use it...

    Err, that's not really the point of it. Well for anyone over the age of 13 anyway, that's not the point.

    I don't understand how people sit there for hours on end engaged in Facebook. Honestly, what do they do on there? Browse photos and look at friend lists I suppose. How incredibly boring. Honestly, I've only looked at a couple of my friends photos once or twice, I haven't seen 98% of my friends list photos.

    I have better things to do with my time, namely, TSR.

    Not everyone uses it. A lot of people don't have time to waste on facebook or see any reason to use it.

    I think it's more of an English thing. I don't have it, my friend does though and she only has like 16 friends but on bebo she has like 200+? and that's only including people she's met before
