Seeing as I work with mostly adults,  I have a few of them as friends on Facebook (regrettably?) and for those of us with parents who discovered e-mail a few years back, they also successfully brought upon the reemergence of the chain letter and now it has translated over to Facebook.  Except now its taken on the life of dumb things like Farmtown and YoVille and all the other stupid crap that no one cares about, I can't go a day without getting some silly request for some Facebook application or thing like that.

So, stay off my internets, adults.

My mom and most of my family are on Facebook...it's why I keep Facebok to 6 or 7 of my cleaner friends, and most of my foul mouthed conversation is kept to Myspace. Really I only use Facebook for family.
 
And yeah..Farmville and Yoville can kiss my ass. I don't care if you found a virtual sheep, perv.

I suppose I'll agree with this.

Though a few of the people I keep in touch with are dumdums that don't have .edu addresses so wouldn't be on there.

Why? It's pretty useful.

But I do hate this farmville and mafia wars crap. And it's only the adults that do it. It's like they turn into an idiot as soon as they get on facebook.

I love me some Facebook.

I honestly think it has become one of the more powerful structure on the Internet.

It is the shining jewel on top of the new social media crown.

This...

The only thing I use facebook for is writing the occasional post on people's walls, and for an epic picture storage database (best idea ever facebook...killed all other picture sites)

I use facebook all the time. Its simple and easy to use. As for apps, "ignore all" solves all problems. The only thing I do is Pro Football Picks, but thats just with a group of friends.

Exactly, now it's just a smidgen better than myspace, but hardly. I joined it as a way to keep in touch when I moved, to organize events, and super easily share photos of hanging out, etc.

It should have stayed like that.

Uh it CAN stay like that. You can just ignore or block anything you don't want to see. It really is so simple even you children can do it.

Some of the game apps are stupid, some are a cute way to spend a coffee break. What I don't get are those people who PAY for stuff in Facebook games.

But seriously, is this a reason to rant, on an online paintball forum of all things? Take a deep breath and think about the priorities in your life quick. And if you still want to boycott Facebook, then go ahead.

Just because you can watch everybody, hear their thoughts and prayers and control their very destiny doesn't mean you need to be all high and almighty on us.

My inbox is CONSTANTLY clogged with spam-chain-mails of the dumbest stuff from my mom/dad/aunts/uncles.  Now that they're retired they spend their free time spamming my mailbox, and I can't even block their address because occassionally they send me real emails.
