Anyone else like me and just not get facebook???

I can't understand how it is considered social to sit in front of a computer???

Pointless website. Anything people say it is useful for, can be done by either going to see your friend or ringing them.

I just don't get it, I used to have one because my friends told me it was great, so I set one up and thought what's the point.

Cool blog. You should post it as a Note on Facebook so more people can see it.

I don't mind facebook. I do have one but I don't use it often. In all honesty, I just think anti-facebook fans are just people who have no social lives or friends who are scared that they will prove to themselves that this is the case if they join. Losers...

Facebook is just like any other electronic communication such as email.

Email


And it's easy to see photographs, arrange events etc in a single email?

We should set up Anti-Facebook. And anti-facebook social networking site. Where people who hate facebook can keep in touch with each other and play Pretendingtogrowcropsville.

I gotta agree with this. I have friends all over the country and that's pretty much the only reason I still have FB.

Let me boil this down to basics for you.

Facebook: One place, containing contact details, messaging systems, multiple photoalbums etc

Email: Limited size (my works firewall blocks 6Mb emails for example), multiple emails required.

Facebook is simply convenient, and you're coming off as trying too hard to be cool.

I've always been kinda anti-facebook. But I still have one. I've got the tab open at the minute. Passes the time at work, keeps me in touch with people.

When i'm not at work I never actually go on it though.

The thing that I hate the most is the pointless crap that people put on there. And if I say I don't care then it just looks like i'm a moody bastard. It's just like one big ego inflator.

Ok fair point, I can see it's uses IF your friends live miles away, I mean it's pointless to have it if all your friends live nearby.

What I really want to know...is why people feel the need to put a massive amount of question marks at the end of a sentence when they're posting online. Is it a desire for attention????????

Quote by The9

Other people can't see that email, besides I don't think I've ever used email to keep in contact with anyone really, most of my friends I speak with reguarlly over Steam anyway, but facebook is useful for having a quick chat over the internet with friends who live far away. Email always seems to be for stuff that's urgent between people I know. Besides it's nice to have friends look at pictures and to look at the pictures themselves.

I get Facebook. It's useful. However, what I don't get is the people who are constantly on there. Updating their status' about shit that NO ONE CARES ABOUT. And people who like every god-damn thing; one of my friends liked "Saying f*ck when you're angry". What?

So yes, Facebook is a very good idea, it's just the inane shit that people put on there that I object to.

Not having a facebook is more of a statement than calling it convenient.

Facebook is a clever and smart website. anyone denying that is trying far too hard to not conform to the norm.

people get roped into "cyber socializing" rather than socializing in reality.

That is truly it's best use. Anyone remember that cartoon character-avatar thing? Supposedly about to stop us "child-molesters"(why do they call us that? children love us!) from finding children or sumshit.

You're forgetting that most people on facebook do have social lives. It's the anti-facebook fans who don't because they don't have friends good enough to talk to on a daily basis.

facebook's pretty useful, it's annoying when people use it for meaningless shit (like 'liking' everything) but it's still a very convenient way to keep up to date with everyone, organise events, share pictures and get hold of people.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

Facebook is a good idea, it allows communication with others quickly and easily. I mean you can instant message, share photos with all your friends at once, etc...

The problems arise from how [some] people use it. It is good for conveying things to friends/socialising with people you can't communicate with elsewhere easily [ie people living in different countries]. It is bad for people who like things like "______ likes Cleaning foundation off your bumper after a hard day of runnin' down sluts. and OMG this actually works hold your breath for 72 hours and you will die."
It also has adverse consequences such as ego inflation and it seems to breed passive aggressiveness.

However, the idea in itself is brilliant, and very helpful. It's all in how you use it.

It also allows me to stalk my ex, which is fantastic!

Try and function at university (college for those on the other side of the pond) without facebook... You'll be excluded from just about everything, people don't organise parties/gatherings by word of mouth anymore it's all about facebook events/groups. Informal study groups are also set up via facebook, societies often keep their members in the loop via facebook etc. etc. It's also the easiest way to keep in contact with your friends at other universities (colleges.)

But first and foremost facebook is about stalking women.
