Life itself facilitates those things, and you say that as if you're not on FML, where people read about other people's lives and try to be funny for thumbs. I don't really care enough to let a TV show make your arguments for you, I just thought what you said was incredibly stupid.

Oh, and MrConcise, you too. Not everyone who uses Facebook solely uses it to post dumb shit. A lot of people actually use it for good reasons; communication, announcements, planning. My cousins wife just announced the birth of their daughter, on Facebook. Saved a hell of a lot of time in phone calls, and you have the gall to say that its the embodiment of bad behaviour. Fuck you, good night.

No, she was damn well not hacked. She'd given birth not 3 hours before the photo was posted. And Concise, I will once again tell you to fuck off. If someone wants to make an announcement on Facebook, they damn well have that right. I will say this as politely as possible; get that cactus removed from your ass and deepthroat it.

Do explain how all the good things I just listed about Facebook gets outweighed by the concise idiot who only says that its mainly for degenerates. To 35; and this is why we HAVE numbers and usernames, we should use them!

#36 - You're pretty hostile and rude, and the ad hominem is uncalled for. Perhaps you should stop misplacing your frustration, you're definitely not portraying yourself in a positive light. People may disagree with my opinions, sure, but at least when I argue them I don't come out looking like a hot-headed asshole.

At least in this argument, I'm not being a jerk by calling anyone who uses Facebook- or ANY social media for that matter- stupid. Hot headed, maybe, but at least I had more basis other than "people who use it are stupid". Again; Cactus, ass, deepthroat. Good night, sir.

#42 - Please quote where I implied anybody was stupid for using social media, because that did not happen. If you're going to make an argument, you might want to comprehend the person you're arguing against.

Okay, maybe not you, but you were pretty close. I'm not apologizing, you might well have just stood at a podium and repeated the whole "mind of a twelve year old" bullshit. Again, GOOD NIGHT!

#47 - Nah, I'm done here. He clearly doesn't understand how vanity and melodrama don't equate to stupidity. I already got my point across that we as people invest too much into the public images of ourselves and graphic representations of our thoughts, anybody who cares enough will have understood.

#4 Well I like to use Facebook to plan large events, like school group projects or field trips, birthday/Christmas/New Year's parties, themed get-togethers (like I planned a fun Harry Potter night with my friends), etc... I find it easier to use than the phone (because I can't call 5+ people at the same time, but I can immediately update several people on new locations/ideas via social media), I like that it's instantaneous and it is also really useful because I can use things like polls (to get an organized view of people's opinions on schedule, events, or whatnot) and post maps of the location and photos if I need an opinion on something, without actually having to physically go to my friends to individually show each of them photos of ideas/locations (I have no car and we currently live in different cities), etc. I know there's other social medias, but I find Facebook is very user friendly and most people have an account.

Also, it's a good way to send photos to a group of people. It's easy to say that sharing photos via social media is cold/impersonal, but I have family who live in different countries or hours and hours away from where I live (plus, as I said, I can't drive yet) and when someone has kids or gets baptized and they want to be able to have some photos to send to 50+ family members, it's just easier to post the 30 different photos on a group page than to send a zillion emails or letters. Not to mention people like having a digital copy now (to put in those electronic frames, or make cds, or whatever) So yeah, Facebook has a lot of vanity/melodrama, but I find it can be quite useful when you need it. I know there are other sites that can do the same things, but as I've said, Facebook is really user friendly :)

I use Facebook, but the act of breaking up through any social platform seems childish. Hence "is she 12 years old?" You guys misunderstood my first comment. Case closed.

I don't use Facebook because it's just not my scene. I dunno, I guess I just never got into it. I'm usually the last to know about anything that's going on though and sometimes that's kinda wack. I wish I didn't feel pressured to participate on a site that doesn't really interest me. Just bums me out that people find it sufficient to use facebook instead of other mediums.
