I am a non-facebooker!!! It’s so nice to meet another one! I should confess I was on there when it first was developed, but when I entered the real world after college, I lost interest.

My reasons:

1. I don’t care about people’s personal lives that I knew 5-10 years ago and no longer keep in contact with.

2. I don’t like people knowing what I’m always up to – I like to be mysterious 🙂

3. I am just “over it”.

4. I don’t like that you have to be on Facebook to take advantage of certain deals/promotions, so I am rebelling! 🙂 I am not falling for the trap!

5. I don’t like that people think they are connected/friendly with me just because they are my friend on facebook – make the real effort! At least send an email! 🙂

I’m technically on Facebook but I haven’t pulled up my profile (or anyone else’s) in over a year at least.

I do have facebook but am seriously considering getting rid of it. I never have anything I’m comfortable posting about. It all seems too personal. Plus my husband doesn’t have facebook, which I think is smart. I worry that there are temptations on fb, keeping in contact with exes and seeing every time they get a promotion or something. Some things are better left in the past. I mostly keep it because I like having access to all my pictures from college. This thread may just convince me to pull the plug…

I do, but only to talk to my grandmother who is very ill.

I have one, I got rid of it for a long time and only got back on when my best friend moved across the country so that I could see pics of all her adventures. Although in response to your #6 point, I just went to a work training (I work in job development/ social service) and almost the entire training was on social media and how that is today, and as a service provider we need to be on facebook, twitter, linkdin, and we need to have all of our clients on their as well (in a professional manner), there are even people who have a professional facebook that use it as a resume because it has been shown to be more effective…. I’m still on the fence about all of that but thought I’d throw it in.
