I recently found this part of a post on a different forum.

"it's such a festering pile of garbage with consistent, irrelevant and meaningless posts by moronic and despondent teenagers that have the need to speak, even if nobody wants to listen or tries to ignore their absurd rants about pointless things.

can anyone tell me why facebook is so popular and why people like it?
because i, frankly, don't understand why"

Do you agree with this or disagree?

I don't really like Facebook, although I disagree with the flaming part.

I only interact with about 7 people regularly on it, the rest of the "friends" I keep are for the sole purpose of laughing at their misfortunes.

It's good for "staying in touch" with people. I'm especially bad at doing that on my own so Facebook helps, somewhat.. I don't really do much on there, I just accept people's friend requests (rarely lol) and so if they want to talk to me or whatever, they can.. Lol >_<

I can tell you from a recent bad experience that Facebook and worklife do NOT mix. Never have coworkers as friends, nor add yourself to any groups remotely related to your job.

By the way, if a manager wants to get into your Facebook bad enough, they will find a way in. I learned it doesn't matter how many privacy settings you had, or if you blocked everyone you work with.

I like it for its convenience. I would have never been able to contact so many of my old friends and still see what they're up to if it wasn't for Facebook. It's also an easy way to connect/gather information on current news topics, companies that I have an interest in, and other stuff.

So, yes. There are "festering piles of garbage" and "pointless rants" like OP has mentioned. You can't help that once that kind of power gets in the hands of immature children, trolls, and feeders. But Facebook has its values too. It all depends on how you use it. If you don't want that stuff showing up in your newsfeed, just get rid of the source and be on your merry way ~ :)

So true. Now that I'm starting to look into jobs and internships, I've been keeping my Facebook as clean as I can.

It's a good way to stay in touch with people you don't see every day that doesn't require calling/texting them. It's also a good way to communicate with a bunch of friends at once as it's much easier to invite 30 people to a party through facebook than it is to call each of them up individually.

It's also useful for event planning or just generally keeping people you work with up to date on things. Great for businesses as well since it's easier to set up a facebook than it is to set up a website.

Most people only bash facebook because it's popular and they want to feel like they're edgy and rebellious. So pretty much the same reason most people bash everything that's popular.

Well Facebook to me is not to "like" exactly. It's to keep in touch with friends. Not all my friends and their families can pay for multi-networking services(Like a phone AND the web etc).And we more than likely go our different ways in college and transferals from different high schools.

At first I wanted to stay away from it.
But now-I'm grateful to Facebook. I've found some friends I thought I'd never see again.Including someone I really care for and admire. Even all the way back to Gr school.Apparently their were friends that were waiting/hoping for me to create an account.I'm glad they still remember me and wanted to keep in touch. I've only had it 2 years now.I'm guessing that's still inexperience for those who flame it tho.

Facebook is what you make it.I don't necessarily like it. I just depend on it sometimes to keep in touch and talk to friends. I'm not one who care when I get a reply,And I want to make myself available whenever a friend is in need.

P.S. And if you can-hang with your friends instead of IM on FB or other sites do that instead.

I think Facebook is pretty useful, especially when it comes to planning, coordinating, and communicating. It makes it easier to keep up with the various groups and organizations that I'm in, and it's a useful tool that allows me to quickly relay information to large quantities of people. I mainly use my facebook for school and business, but it's also a good tool for finding out what's happening in your area.

I don't really use it as much to socialize with people since I prefer in-person communication. If it weren't for the fact that I have so many people, projects, and events to keep up with, I probably wouldn't have a facebook. Hope this answers your question.

Facebook is boring now. It's dead to me. Used to be fun when you join it and now it's dead. All the sites I've been visiting is dead to me.
