It's not overrated, it's a great way to stay connected in general. I mean sure there are people who post annoying and repetitive status updates, but it can be very useful. For example I was in the cast of a musical and the director created a Facebook group to give us notes and rehearsal schedules, so we would remember. It's the annoying people that are overrated, not Facebook.

42- Except for that is a hollow insult, as many people use it. I mean I agree that this dude is a total bitch, there is no NEED to use Facebook. However, there is nothing wrong with using it.

Since you use it doesn't mean it's not over-rated. I use it (though I only use it for music news and have no friends) and I think it is highly over-rated. Plus, most people would rather keep in good contact with a select few rather than mediocre and unnecessary contact with hundreds of people you care nothing about. Oh your cat just sneezed? Oh you're having a rough day because you're boyfriend hasn't texted you back yet? Oh you're at a concert wasting your time on facebook rather than watching the show? NO ONE CARES!!! Now excuse me while I go punch the wall a few times and not make a status about it.... though I kinda just did.... stupid internet!

Well, there is a simple solution to that. Don't friend those kind of people! I only friend family and close friends, and smart people that don't post bitchy crap. Also, there is a way to disable notifications like that, so I don't have a problem with that. Therefore , like you just described, I can easily keep in touch with a lot of good friends, say, in a Facebook group for my summer camp! We have a great time in that Facebook group talking to eachother since we rarely see eachother.

I am a proud owner of a Facebook account. And guess what? No one posts or comments that kind of trivial crap where I can see it. The problem you have is with the people you friend, not with Facebook itself. It's not Facebook's fault that you know too many idiots.

Facebook is just a waste of time. All kids do nowadays is sit inside side on their laptops and Facebook BS all day. Get outside and play a sport.

Sucking on a tone? I didn't know that was possible. Regardless, Facebook is sort of a cancer; props for kicking conformity in the balls, OP.

65- Don't be an idiot. Adults do it just as much as kids... The fact that this FML is about two adults proves that. 72- As you can see earlier, I never sided with that bitch. I simply said Facebook isn't necessarily a bad thing, it just depends how you use it.

Actually, a tonne is more of the metric equivalent of a ton - it is 1000 kg instead of 2000 lb. They are still pretty similar, but I don't think it was a good idea to make the words so similar.

"You have suspiciously little Facebook activity, what are you hiding?" Also, then they'd just think OP was groveling. Which, really, he would be. What the hell are you replying to my comment for anyway? Doesn't have shit to do with your reply.

Some of us avoid Facebook because we think its upper management has no regard or track record for user privacy, and we don't want them to profit off of our having an account with them.

It has relevance to the post and FML, hence why I commented. Also considering FML is a place where you can comment on any post, I have every right to comment on this.

I'd have failed courses by now if Facebook wasn't around. You'd be surprised how much ACTUAL productive group work can happen, as opposed to offline.

Personally, I stopped using it in June because I couldn't handle it. They say it isn't an addiction until you suck dick for it, and lets just say I've done things I'm not proud of for an Internet connection.

I only created a Facebook account this summer to meet people at college prior to getting there and have some friends going in. Thing is I don't give a damn about Facebook and go on once every week if that for about 5 minutes and then all of my fucks have been given

So what you're saying is, you have so little self-control that you can't even moderate your usage of a website, therefore... the website is to blame?!

10 no, I am not talking about myself. Yes, I do have a facebook , but I am not that much into it. It can be addicting for certain people, I've heard enough people complain about it.

23- Regardless of whether its you or other people's problem, the point remains valid. People just want to blame their addictions on everything except themselves.

Well I am not a regular user of Facebook, I just use it for academic purposes, for example you can see my comments on the first post in which I talked about a musical Facebook group. But in order to please any nonexistent fans out there, here goes- Ugh, what the hell bro. I mean, Facebook WAS cool, back when I was the only one on it. The only reason I'm supporting Facebook in this arguement is because everyone on this FML seems to dislike Facebook, and I simply MUST be in the minority.

#5 + 12 you both are not alone! I too have no Facebook and have never been more content. After I deleted it I felt like I had more time to literally interact with people rather than stalk them from a computer screen

Some interviewers look on their facebooks to see what kind of people they are and what they are willing to show on the Internet. It's like a reflection of their personality

I agree, and it is sad. Very few people I know do not have a FB account or any social media account at all. And when they tell people that, they get suspicious b/c apparently not having FB is odd...as in this FML. I fear that job interviews will focus mainly on your FB account in the future. However people are different online and sometimes post things they later regret. This is why you should have just your friends on fb not every person youve stared at. It will look cleaner and will be easier to manage.

Exactly...and it all devolves to shallow interactions. Albert Einstein said "I fear the day when technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots." Kind of saddening to see his prediction coming true
