@Missloveknot:  I don’t have it, and yes sometimes.  Everything is connected to FB it seems like, but it’s so annoying with so much childish crap and drama that I’m glad I do not have it.

Likewise. I see so many threads on here about family/in-law/wedding party drama, and frequently part of the issue hinges on how X posted a comment or a picture on Facebook and Y’s feelings got hurt/found out about something/took it the wrong way, etc. – every time I see that, I think, “I’m so glad I don’t have to deal with any of that!”

There are tradeoffs. However, I think my privacy and peace of mind are well worth it.

No Facebook here either.  I don’t feel like I’m missing anything, but my friends all seem to think I am.  I hear of so much drama and junk that happens on it – I just would rather not be involved.  I guess it distances me a bit from everyone, but I can see me getting caught up in stuff that just doesn’t matter.

My FH has Facebook – if there’s something I need to see on it, he just pulls it up for me.

@Missloveknot:  Yes, that too! There are a lot of people that I really just don’t want to have to expend precious time and energy dealing with, and by not being on Facebook, I don’t have to, and I don’t have to justify it or risk insulting them by blocking/defriending/declining a friend request, etc.
