99% of my friends does use facebook, as well as majority of people in my age (I'm 20).

Well, I've created an account there and I deleted it the same day. This whole facebook thing is like a place where all the douchebags and idiots from around the world can meet. All the worst kind of people.

In one day I've received loads of "friend" invites from people that wont even say "hi" on the street and YET they want to add me because they need more "friends" in their statictics.

This shit is sick. I don't want to sound like old grumpy man, but you know... 10 years ago kids actually went outside to meet friends and didnt waste their lifes in front of a virtual social bullshit site.

I dont like my generation, this gets only worse with time. Facebook allows retards to form large groups and communicate. That site is just a place filled with like single girls trying to sell themselves through some half naked tease pics, and tards that write corny comments under them. Jesus, I dont want to have anything to do with these people.


But you know whats the worst thing about facebook? Well, nowadays they say if you dont have a profile (as a musician) - you dont exist. Oh well - fu@#$ you, I'll do my thing without these internet sociopaths. Somehow...

Gief back 90's (or 80's), without all that modern bullcrap. I just want to play the guitar and make cash out of it, not to seek for virtual "friends" that will download my album from some pirate torrents anyway.

Steve Vai or Paul Gilbert didnt have to care about all this internet sh1t, they just played. But these days I feel like we have to shock people with some circus tricks to catch their attention, just playing guitar just aint enough. I don't really like this.

So if they partitioned it into friend and acquaintance requests, you'd be happy with it? Grow the **** up man.

I think the point you're missing is that yes, there are idiots on there, and they are in big groups, but there are also lots of idiots in society and it's a fair representation. You said it yourself that 99% of your friends use it, so that makes your 'douchebags and idiots' argument invalid unless all your friends are douchebags and idiots.

Having a Facebook account does not mean that you do not have real life friends, or socialise in real life - it's a networking tool. If you don't like it, don't use it.

You could always...you know...just accept the requests...you know...of the people regulary hang out with and just...you know...reject the douchebags. Just a thought Seriously man. I know that there are incredible amounts of idiots on FB but only if you accept them as friends.

I didnt say that only tards use facebook. I said that it makes it easier for them to communicate, thats why I dont have a good opinion on that site

. If you know an idiot IRL - you dont hang out with him, right?
And what if you know that you wont really make a good and cheap advert of your band album as a modern guitarist without hanging out with idiots (analogy to having a profile filled with fake friends and circus tricks).


I realize alot of normal people does use the site aswell, I dont know, to chat with friends abroad or whatever, its cool. But I wouldnt like to wake up in ten years without nothing as a musician just because I thought "screw facebook" earlier.

You can make a like page and throw a few singles on, it's nothing you worked to hard for. And if you don't make a like page, someone will. Facebook is an ill corner of the internet man. You can either use it for what it's for or just be old school about it.

Ok what you know is wrong. You think hanging out with idiots is the only way to make it. Hanging out with idiots will make you an idiot. In fact I think you already are one

And tt's not just facebook you silly goose. If you want to be a musician who wants to make money, people have to hear your music right? Isn't that what it's all about?

What better way to let people hear your music then by uploading it on websites with a huge userbase like Facebook or even Myspace. Your music will spread faster than back in the 90s/80s. Just show your non-idiot friends your music and they will show it to their friends.

you can either be a grumpy little twat, or you can swallow your pride and do things that even might have a little contribution to your success. otherwise you don't deserve it.

Pfft, outcast.. <__<

Then again, since you don't have Facebook apparently you are still able to make cash as a musician.

Anyone see the irony of complaining about "virtual social bullshit" on an internet forum?
