    People, often subconciously, use it as a tool to 'show off', to be 'one of the crowd.' There's this vicious cycle where people obsessively take cameras with them wherever they might be, coming up with 100 different poses of drinking a can of beer, all the while adding 'friends' they've never even spoken too. It fuels so much negativity for us students, methinks. :yes:

    What's your experience of facebook been like?

    Oh dear. Anyone that obsessed with themselves on Facebook doesn't have enough time to do those things in the first place. It is a networking site after all.

    I know what you mean. I have a facebook account, but don't use it much. I have friends who whenever I go out with them, they always want to take photos just for the sake of posting them up on facebook to prove they 'have a life'. It's kinda pathetic, and I hate photos too so that doesn't help...

    I can never be bothered to take photos of myself. I just use facebook because I'm bored a lot of the time, and also its a good way of organising things for a lot of people without having to send a billion texts.

    I don't use facebook that much, I don't really see the point when I could just talk to people on msn or text/phone them.

    superficial people have always existed, facebook didn't suddenly make people that way.

    You're so right. I really couldn't agree with you more! However, I'm still addicted to it.

    I actually love facebook. I never take photos, but me and my friends decided that we would take more just to keep them as memories. They go up on facebook, but just so we can save eachother's photos, and thats all I've seen anyone else do it for. I've never known anyone to take photos just to prove they have a life - only so that they can have them and keep them. I don't think there is anything wrong with adding random people either, because surely the whole point is to network - to make new friends with people who have common interests or friends.

    I hate my drunken tagged photos. If anyone of this planet is envious of my photos then they must be clinically insane.

    It's a very vain website and inspires morons who spend more time taking photos of themselves than making a conversation on night out.

    I have loads of friends on Facebook. In real life, my amount of friends is probably less than 5% of my Facebook friends.

    I don't care about face book. The most I am on it is once or twice a week, and even then it's only to briefly check on messages.

    You shouldn't take it so seriously.

    TSR, on the other hand, I am addicted to.
