Unless you've been living under a rock or you're hopelessly retarded, I'm sure you know what Facebook is.

I don't have one. I think I'm the only one on campus who doesn't have one and who cringe everytime someone says, "Alright, I'll Facebook you" like it's some kind of neo-yuppie lingo term. (I'm not a fan of Twitter either now that I'm saying this). However, there seems to be a use for it. I know all the organizations and clubs here use it as sort of a bulletin board. It also seems easier to get a hold of someone through Facebook than actual email.

I don't feel like I'm missing out. Trust me, I tried Friendster for a couple of years and I'm sure both suck just the same. But I feel like my life, not to mention my almost dead social life, would be a bit more convenient if I had a Facebook account.

Should I make one?

yeah i was in the same situation as you. i hate to say i have a facebook because most people use it way to much but i did get one once i went to college. It makes it easier to stay connected to old friends and it makes it easier to contact classmates. so i would say get one because it is easier than e-mail

About the 'I'll facebook you' bit, that made me cringe too, don't worry.

its alot easier to add a friend and use facebook than it is to track them down and get their email. It's what u make it really. there's also some games and stuff, so you can use it to contact people, or just pass the time. just make sure you go outside every once in a while
In speed versus emotional playing, i think of an M16 versus an M24. You can have 650 rounds per minute, or one round, one kill. Both should be in your arsenal.

why not? there is nothing u could lose by making one and there are quite a few advantages. Add the people u know and try to get to know them better.

if you want google to get 10 cents off your name, get harassed, and let EVERYONE know who you are and what you're doing....just go right ahead...

Never liked it, will never use it, I have a thing called a phone...and e-mail...do you? It's not easier than picking up your phone and dialing your mates or e-mailing...

yeah I don't like social networking sites at all. I find no point...who the hell cares that I'm on my myspace posting right now zomg!

That doesn't even make sense...

TS I'm in a similar situation and so far I'm sticking to my guns. If you think it's going to make a huge difference then go for it, if not then don't bother.

Yeah you may aswell, what have you got to lose?

There's your answer.....

Does it even matter anyway? I have a Facebook and I NEVER use it, i'm loosing anything by having one.
#14
i have one and it serves its purpose to contact people. if thats what you need then make one

edit:^ you mean you don't lose anything by having it

That's for ***s. Dome Fossil is where the fun is at. Anyway, I don't see why not. You can talk to people that way without adding them on messenger, which is harder, because you need their E-mail address and you can't be sure if it's really them, because you can't see a profile pic. Why not? What's the worst that could happen? And I don't think anyone I know uses Twitter.

If you manage to ignore the crap that makes up 90% of facebook, it can actually serve a useful purpose for, as you put, organizations/events details, amoungst a few other things.. :/
#26
Facebook is useful! I've gotten back in touch with people I knew when I was like 8 years old, also it's a relatively effective way of posting events, and letting everyone know. As long as people use facebook (and they do), I'd much rather tell my friends there's a party, camping trip, concert, or whatever, by inviting them all to something on face book, than calling 30 people with the same message. It's not like you have to live your life on there, but since so many people use it, and since they are easy to find on there, it has become a viable communication channel. Unless you don't want people to know you exist, then get it!

It can be quite useful. Just about everything I am a part of on campus has a facebook group and uses it as a public forum. However, generally people just use it to stalk to cute girl they liked in high school.


Its a double-edged sword.
