I think it is over-rated, especially as a website for socializing with people. Let me explain why.

I have 164 friends on Facebook. That seems like a lot of friends right? Except very rarely do my so-called friends on Facebook ever reply back to the messages in the chatbox I send to them. Even when I had over 600 friends on my previous Facebook account, people RARELY responded to my chatbox messages. So chances are very few of my so-called friends on Facebook actually know me.

If you want to socialize with people online in a fast and fun manner, you are better off posting on a really popular online forum like Reddit, 4chan, ign.com or gamespot. You can get much faster and funner replies on a forum like that than Facebook.

In fact, about the only thing Facebook is good for is showing off how glamorous your life style is. And occasionally chatting with a few friends that live far, far away from you, but that's about it. Having several hundred (and even several thousand) friends on Facebook is POINTLESS, and it does not make for a better social life online. If you want a good social life, just post on a popular online forum or chatroom. Facebook is NOT a good place for an online social life.

Facebook is a bottomless pit.. It takes lives away from people.. Facebook is exactly what you said it's for, to show off your good or bad your life, may or not be.

I'm a Facebook addict with 1800 friends plus, and Facebook has essentially been a gaming account and a way to figure out what is going through the minds of the far right wing. Truth be told, it alienates people. I have maybe 5 people I talk to regularly, and I'm a contributor to several pages. Other than that, it's pretty much something that stays open in the other window.

I think those people who tend to hate social media are those who are insecure of themselves or are simply trying to run away from the hype or mainstream.
Yes you can hate social medias but you can't deny that it's useful for other people; connecting one person to another from one country to another. For example, me I have lots of friends in FB, but do I talk to them a lot? No. Do I care? No because they're just FB friends especially to my relatives at the Philippines. It doesn't really mean anything.

Those who complain about the numbers of friends people have and how worthless it is are usually those who are envious of the person' life. Note, I said usually there are those reclusive & rarely enough Socratic people who are righteous to their cause.

It really depends per country however, some are very vulgar and publicize their lives to the whole world and I won't criticize them, but I'll also say that my current location isn't like that.

Closed Minded people be like ... I'm just being reclusive when in fact they really want those kind of lives. A perfect example is OP per his rage comment. Remember, life is always better if you look at things in a much positive mood. This is why anime fans (the masses) tends to get a lot of hates from the society because of well ... how they treat the society.

See this guy gets it, I respect this guy.

He's at least honest to himself instead of running away from problems. He's open-minded unlike the OP.

Facebook is overrated and it is extremely boring now. However it is a great tool for staying in touch with old friends and seeing people grow and mature when they live far away. I never had a myspace, but from what ive seen and heard it looks so much cooler than facebook, and I dont know why we strayed from that. Custom backrounds, and custom music and a guestbook, its preety cool!

MySpace didn't attract everyone, it only attracted the teenagers which was the reason why it fell eventually.

Why do you hate the site? I don't hate it. I just don't like the fact that the quality of social interaction on Facebook is very poor compared to a popular forum.

because alot of people who are on the site, use it as a way to bully other people online. It also has a large population of the so called "swag fags" who pollute the internet with their retarded status updates.

Its not necessary the site i hate, so much as a certain group of people on it.

95% of the friends i had on facebook, when i had one. Where annoying pretentious teenagers, who believed they were social crusaders and thought they knew more than educated people who either studied the subject, or have first hand experience with the subject
