I won’t bore you with all the gritty, catty details but, In a nutshell: my aunt who was also my Maid/Matron of Honor bowed out of my wedding HOURS before start-time then blocked me from her facebook. 1 month later, we took my new in-laws (sister-in-law, brother-in-law & 2 year old niece) with us on our honeymoon so they could babysit my husband’s son, whom we have custody of. YUP, paid for all of their airfare & lodging too! Then they had the nerve to be upset that WE didn’t thank THEM!!
Anywho – I’ve deactivated my account because I just can’t handle the drama right now. Has anyone else done this?

@eebgniddew: my Fiance deactivated his facebook but reopened it after the drama from his divorce died down.
I just block people who harass me. I live on facebook.

I am seriously considering deactivating mine as well. Good for you, getting out of the family drama. I can’t believe they wanted a thank you from you!

I deactivaated mine last year over some DRAMA LLAMAS. The only thing I miss is being able to play games and send “gifts” to my “neighbors”.

I consider deleting mine often, but am too addicted to actually do so. I just delete and block people when there are problems, which there always are.

Oh I absolutely got rid of mine due to drama… it was ALWAYS something! I can say that I do miss it sometimes, but my life is MUCH less stressful. I don’t care about everyone else and their drama, thay can save it for their mama!! 🙂

@In the media: Ditto. I can’t survive without it, but I do occasional purging of people who really aren’t my friends and people are causes drama, or people who just keeps “liking” my stuff and never commenting and I never talk to them in real life anyway.

I got out of a LTR, started dating off a website, and won the lottery (meeting my FI). We got engaged after a few weeks. So gossip was inevitable. My relatives and other unsavory people began to speculate. They started rumors that I cheated on my ex and went straight to my Fiance because he was rich. My mom heard wind of this, she was on my side of course because she knew what was really going on, but it still peeved me that they wouldn’t just ask me straight out instead of making up stories.
Then my ex heard wind of my engagement and “protested” (rolling my eyes here) thinking that my motivation to settle down was to replace him.
I deleted my FB, sacrificing my professional contacts but realizing that the world worked just dandy before it. Actually, it’s much better. I’m really happy without it. People put up a totally different persona online sometimes and that bothers me the most. They get more gutsy because the computer screen shields their faces from my fist.

I just block people I don’t want to deal with. I totally respect you for deactivating it if you can’t handle it right now because of rude people, though.
For all of you who deactivated your FB pages: You can reactivate it at some point if you ever change your mind!

I block or hide annoying people in my life. If I don’t want to read about their drama or need for attention, I don’t have to. Anybody who makes me want to scream gets hid at minimum. If you’re a real troublemaker, you’ll get blocked.

I don’t get how people have facebook drama with hide, delete, block, and lock down options.

I dont deal with any drama like that and if I do, there is the hide/delete/block function for that reason…..

I’ve only ever had drama on FB once. A friend who is a drama queen, and a friend who is a snark monster started to thread jack a post of mine with some back and forth BS amongst themselves.
So I just deleted the post and told them both seperately that my FB is for fun and laughs, and where I wax on and on about my reality TV addiction. Nothing else.
I don’t post about personal stuff regarding my relationships – both with Fiance and my family. I post about wedding stuff only rarely. And even then it’s not serious. If I need to have a deep personal conversation with someone I can email them, or more likely call them.
As PP’s said above. FB, for me, is about stupid games, and silly time wasting distractions.
