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.
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.
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.
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.
Well, what are you trying to hide? On a more serious note, if they're that suspicious, you might not want to work with them anyway.
Well, that sucks a tonne, Facebook is overrated anyway.
