My reason: I don't understand it and it scares me.
Anyone else? I'm starting to feel so alone. So very alone.
i'm scared of rejection and people laughing at my painfully unexciting life
or here here?????
its myspazzz all the way bbz
i hated school and university and i'm a hideous misanthrope. and i DON'T DO fads.
why can't people use the fucking phone?
i did the whole 'loads of friends and very few people i really know' thing for a while and found it so hollow i quit.
what everyone else said
you are now a facebooker
TALK TO PEOPLE MOTHERFUCKERS!
how would I know some person I thought was ok at uni now has a child? It's that kind of essential information that makes facebook a boon. A boon!
I don't have any people I don't know/don't like on it. Maybe THAT'S why I never log into the bastard.
On the plus side it has a good fantasy football thing that you can force all of your friends to join. There are many websites with said feature though.
My reasons are similar to thewarn's, maybe with an added soupçon of contrariness. I must admit today I seriously faltered - EVERYONE at work is on it and giggling at shared jokes and I feel like I'm missing out.
Unless I can see what jokes everyone is making, how can I tell them exactly why they aren't funny?
Because it seems completely pointless, and just a horrible excuse for making yourself look like a better person than you are.
does anyone actually give a shit on facebook past who the person is and how you know them?
I've got MSN, I've got e-mail and my phone, and, y'know, conversation.
"Social Networking" makes me want to do a little death.
that is your name right
There is nothing to understand. It's almost all bullshite. If you want someone you were never united with in the first place to invite you to 'reunion drinks' every bloody day then it's the site for you.
can't be bothered basically! i'll only get addicted, and i'll stick to heroin for that.
The reason being that it's another way for people to communicate with me.
What up, dawg?
I'm not exactly loving it though, I'll probs delete my account at some point.
are the nasty facebookers bullying you again?
That pegley is a mean one.
and then he wrote on my wall! The fucker!
with a pirate ship, send him a drink and beat him at scrabble. that's what I'd do!
This is why I'm not on facebook.
My friends keep telling me to, I don't cos it makes me like a maverick who plays by his own rules or something.
that you can see when people break up. It's sad that it is more interesting when people break up rather than new relationships blossoming?! haha, ah well! I don't actually know them on there anyway!
when i heard someone say 'i found out my best mate was engaged via facebook and a little part of my soul died' i vowed never to go near the fucker. plus people already have more than enough ways to contact me.
blimey thats harsh. at least you didn't see her wedding photos on there before you knew she was engaged. I think my face would have died if i saw that.
don't know what you're missing! I'm not even sure why I signed up to be honest, and now people that I once worked with and others that I have since severed all contact with can find me with ease!
Miserabli as you thought, eh?
Me and Judge_B are facebook friends! Isn't that awesome!?
I might have to join up. I don't know where else I'd find Judge_B and sadpunk!
If only I could send you something about zombies or vampires or some other crap then we could compare ourselves and rate each other and add the likeness application!
social networking site.
It'll just be you, me and Judge_B.
We can just compare ourselves to each other all the time.
I will call it:
'You, me and Judge_B'.
so yeah, why not eh?
for staying away imo! i don't want to be found :)
1. I don't want random people who I didn't like in school to contact me or to know anything about my life.
2. I don't go out every weekend with a group of bezzie mates to a chain bar and dance to cheese, so I have no photos to add.
3. A girl I quite fancy always brings up the fact I should join when we meet - it is one desperately held talking point.
just imagine though, pictures in Yate's dancing to Chesney Hawkes with you arm around said girl. And just think of the joy on your face when her 'status' turns to 'in a relationship' with you!
Thank the Lord for facebook!
I'm more of a Walkabout guy.
it's got to be after a cheap pitcher at spoon's though, a fundamental hour wait at the bar as fat skinheads barge their way to the front, wiping every drop of sweat from their armpits onto your face as they wave their fivers aloft....
That is why I'm in tonight.
for Halloween the other night they had a poster outside saying something like 'A Halloween Night to give you the willies!'
And the picture was of some rugby playing arsehole stood behind some random Benny Hill blonde with RAPE IN HIS EYES.
Needless to say there were certain to be some COCKS in attendance.
as long as she doesn't let you know you're dumped by changing the status you're fine.
her changing her status back to 'single' without telling you after an almighty row, and this is how you find out you've been dumped.
facebook ftw? i think not!
indeed, that would be bad. There'd be no poking going on after all that happened that's for sure, let alone super-poking!
I've never even been on the site. If people want to be friends they can bloody talk to me in the pub.
no need for communicating with current post-uni friends (the only communication i can see that ever occurs between people who see each other regularly in real life is unnecessary and done just for the sake of doing it).
i have no wish to ever see any of the people i went to high school ever again. nor do i wish to give them the privilege of knowing what i'm doing with my life.
I've yet to understand myspace so facebook...
I must have been really unpopular.
