Facebook is a horrible place to be...

I thought I should probably vent my feelings about this website before they caused me to have a mental breakdown, because basically I hate this website more than any other I have ever been on. For instance, I was invited to a rave just now by someone on my friends list (not something I'm interested in, but that's besides the point). On the comments page, someone posted 'You are all c**ts' and received 4 'likes' for his post. Sorry, but how is a comment of that nature worthy of any positive feedback? Another point is that groups that are both unfunny and offensive gain literally thousands of followers. I saw a particularly nasty group the other about people with Alzheimer which had roughly 5,000 people in it, all of whom had joined just because they thought it was funny.

 

The worst thing about it all is that I feel compelled to visit the website everyday as it has become the primary mean of communication among many of my friends, and so I don't want to miss any important messages or post from them. Of course, to view the important stuff I have to go through countless posts along the lines of 'just fed my cat :) lol' and 'should i have a sandwich or should i have toast?'. God I feel better for getting all of that off my chest :)

 

Am I missing the appeal of this website? Or do other people feel the same way about it?

 

I agree with you, I use it on a daily basis to see the posts and keep communicated with my friend and all, plus it helps people get to know my band and things like that, but people creates alot of stupid groups, it's kinda sad to see things like that.

I have a love-hate relationship with it, and have deactivated my accounts several times (I actually have two because of family drama... one where some relatives are friends and another for others), but always come back, haha. It is a good way to keep up with people I don't often see. I also like sending in photos from my cell on my travels. I just hate all the spam people send, like Farmville and Mafia Wars requests, group and cause requests, ect. Ah, well. I also seem to get a lot of random friend requests from people on the other side of the planet. :confused: I used to approve them but now only have people I know from elsewhere as friends.

Social networking is so stupid, it lets people do things and say things they would never in real life without thinking about their actions. But sometimes theres a laugh or two on it which is the reason I stay on facebook.

I mainly just use Facebook to communicate with my friends that have moved away

 

This is the only reason I was Facebook. Everyone I know uses this as a primary source of informing people of something. Erm WTF happened to the telephone? I hate it when I live down the road from someone and they can't be arsed to phone so they Facebook.

The worst part about Facebook IS the games. I get people sending me stupid requests all the time. I've blocked so much crap on there and it just keeps coming. If they took out the games and people didnt post meaningless crap all the time it would be much nicer. I love my friends but damn they can really post some boring stuff and I really hate scrolling through and trying to find important VS. stupid crap from it all, LoL!

Facebook got too big too soon and just turned into Chav Book. The final straw for me was finding my mobile number in the phone book I hadn't posted it, it copied it from My Iphone when I synced up with my home page. Luckily I work in the mobile industry and some one tipped me off. Maybe you might want to check yours if you are still a member, Click on account/Edit Friends and then Phone Book

 

I hardly use it now, find this site a much better place to be with like minded individuals

Another thing I have noticed in posts at the moment is people using more vowels than are actually in the word e.g. 'i looooove you, are you doing anything toniiiight?'. It's even worse than this site in terms of grammar!

Facebook is just a worse version of Myspace to me. I still don't get the appeal of it, as it's so boring and bland to me. I joined about 8 months ago and within like 20 minutes one of my family members had already found and sent me a friend request. Unfortunately, these are people I rarely talk to in real life, and now they have a means to pester me online :mad:. But ya, Facebook sucks ;).

While a Dislike button would cause problems for people who are overly emotional, I am still in approval of it. Perhaps they should have an option, if they ever updated it, for anyone who logs in to get a pop-up window to where they'd like to either "enable" or "disable" the Dislike button. While a majority of people would probably choose to disable it, out of fear of having their "MY KITTY IS CUTE!" post disliked...a few open minded individuals, who are looking for overall opinions ontop of the comments might go for it. In a way it kind of premotes trolling...there'd have to be a way to control it somewhere, you know?

 

Besides, I've always wanted to dislike groups and celebrities that get on my nerves...do you realize how bad Bieber would be trolled with dislikes >_>

For me, Facebook has its pros and cons, tbh the same as you get on most web forums - the joys of the internet

 

Its the people who make it what is it, sadly the 'method' people are displaying their idiocy isnt the problem - its the idiots themselves lol

I get the point, you're a cool, non-conforming individual for not enjoying Facebook, and I'm a loser for using it.

 

Everyone needs to just shit the fuck up. If you don't want to use Facebook, don't use it. Stop being little bitches though, it's annoying.

 

I never said that anyone who uses Facebook is a loser, I was merely putting across my own point of view and asking others to put forward there own. I really wouldn't want to be a non-conforming individual, those who strive to be unconventional are just as controlled, if not more so, by convention as regular people.

 

However, if the negativity about Facebook is annoying to you, you probably shouldn't have come to a thread entitled 'Facebook is a horrible place to be...' ;)

It's just that it seems like the cool thing to do is hate Facebook. This surely isn't the first thread of someone trying to put forth that message. Just sayin'.

Just sayin'.

 

How dare you use Facebook talk here! :p

 

Naw, I do see alot of people on my newsfeed use "just sayin" about every single day.

 

It is not that I don't still use it, I said in my previous post I still check it daily but it is getting extremely annoying imo. My main gripe is the GAMES! Everytime I think I have blocked them all, a new one appears. About an hour ago I check it and now I am getting "Billiards champions" or some shit like that. I think alot of people are just getting tired of it honestly. If they got rid of the games and I didn't get friend requests from people I haven't seen in 10 years and will probably never end up talking to again, it wouldn't be THAT bad....I see where you're coming from though Tuss, I have a lot of close friends that are really hooked on it.

I hate facebook, but in a way i find it funny. Getting invited to peoples parties who i have never talked to, getting random FR from woman, look at their wall and all I see is links to porn sites, people arguing over it, people breaking up on it, 'x' as joined 'x' group. People who always post something every hour and yet no-one even comments nor likes it. People who always post the same crap every day. The list is endless, i just don't see why people use it to chat with people when they only live 5 minutes away. Oh and i also laugh at peoples grammar on it :p
