@Eva Peron:  This might be a good topic for a poll.  

I am often frustrated with Facebook, but I am sadly addicted.  I love how it enables me to keep in touch with people I’d otherwise not have much contact with.

Never got one! I lost touch with some people for a reason and if I am still in touch with them it’s for a reason too.

I do have one, but my husband does not. He just doesn’t have any interest in it. I use it primarily to keep in touch with friends and relatives, but have never had any facebook drama. I just don’t understand how or why anyone would have a war like that over the internet on display for everyone to see. Just not my style!

I do not have one, and neither does my Fiance. We are 23 and 24, and we feel it causes too much drama. (We had issues with myspace drama in the past) so we decided as a pact not to have one. Everyone around us does, including our parents! But we just get updated from other people : )

Darling Husband and I have never had one.  I really dislike FB.  I had one for about a week for some promotion related to my work, but I could not stand it.  The entire thing seems very superficial (I am not calling people who use it superficial- just the model and subsequent world it creates.)  It seemed very fake to me, and also I disliked people popping up from my past.  I do not like having to project my fun or success onto the computer.  Darling Husband and I are old-school, he still does not have a cell (well, now we have one to share).  I just do not see any purpose in FB, and would rather enjoy my life, away from the computer screen as much as possible.  I understand some find it useful for keeping in touch long distance, but I like personal correspondence from people I love and care for.  That’s right, I still darkroom print photographs and hand-write letters.  As an artist, I dislike even have to have a website where I it is required that I project many of the same things- success, and my work.  I would much rather have people see my work at a show and visit with me live and in person 😉

My husband never had one– his words when he heard about facebook: that is really @!$%*[email protected]#ing stupid.

I had one for about 1.5-2 years and was never really down with it. The whole info-mining thing & not ever-ever-ever being able to delete your account&info is really really effing creepy imo.

What do I do with my spare time? How do I stay distracted? I paint (starving artist here), work on my house, read etc etc etc same things I did before advent facebook.

:p
