@Bunni0929:  I  don’t have one either. Having people look at my personal pictures kind of freaks me out and I’m not interested in reconnecting with people.  I am in contact with everyone I value, please leave me alone. Lol

@Bunni0929:  I don’t have one either. I disconected my account to, but it still shows the FB icon here because I made my WB account from FB… weird.

I am glad I don’t have one, even though it is hard sometimes regarding to school stuff ehehe.

I have one but my FI deactivated his before we even got together. He didn’t like all the drama and stupidity on it. So you’re not alone!

I have a Facebook, but I never make any posts or put up pictures, and I don’t have many friends on it, just people I know. I don’t want to talk to these people in person, so I follow them on Facebook instead. 

I use it to see how people are doing and to follow some designers, channels, and bloggers that I like. 

I’ve never really had any “drama” on it, and I don’t get bothered by a lot of the things that people on the Bee complain about. I’m not even sure what kind of drama everyone seems to complain about, because I haven’t seen any that couldn’t be easily avoided. I always wonder what people are doing to cause it or be confronted by it; especially those who say they got rid of Facebook because of it. 

Facebook doesn’t have to be as problematic a thing as a lot of the people here make it, to be quite honest. A lot of the problems they encounter can be avoided or nipped in the bud quite easily. Some of the problems they even create themselves. But, what’re ya gonna do — that’s just how some people like to do things.

DH doesn’t have one, I do but I’m hardly ever on it. It’s usually annoying, but it is nice to see family pictures when they’re posted!

My FI might as well not have one. He deletes people all of the time, and wishes to keep his friends list low, haha! I have one, but I did not for a really long time. I only went on there to find some friends who I lost contact with. It was worth it, but I may get rid of it one day. It is silly how much info people put up there… I don’t like to say my kid’s name on there, so he has an alias up, haha! People get too obsessed. Some things should be just for me…

For the record…

I LOVE technology as much as the next person.  And I actively use a lot of technology in my life (always have) often being at the cutting age when it came to work and my Ex-H’s business

BUT when it comes to my personal life, I’ve always been a bit more cautious.

Maybe because it is the fact that I am older…

But I’ve learned in life that when a new trend comes along… that it is worthwhile to hang back a bit and see what happens (if there is any fall out)

I did that with FaceBook.

And I have to say I have NO REGRETS

Sure I heard all the great stories in the beginning, but as time has gone on, I’ve heard more and more complaints

And witnessed countless occasions of Rudeness, and uncaringness towards others

Or what I call DRAMA & TRAUMA

I am glad I didn’t jump on the bandwagon…

I am quite content without FB… and because I’ve never had it I don’t miss it

I now have many friends who are trying to wean themselves off of it because of all the bad crap they’ve experienced on it in regards to their friendships & relationships (they say it is hard because they’ve been on sooo long… and sooo many people are on it, and they did enjoy the good benefits of it)

BUT they say “the stupid shit” that comes up has made it a PITA.
