Sure, and some people have a fb page and never use it.  Some people spend most of their time on their page rather than their newsfeed, or their newfeed is only set to show certain things.

I don’t notice it because I don’t really care. If I like something, I’ll comment on it. If I dislike something, I’ll comment on it. I don’t really spend my time watching what other people do.

Hmm, are they on the same/similar topics? Because if not, that could be the reason. If they are, maybe they just want their profiles to look more active so they appear popular or something.

What I noticed on my FB is a lot of my friends aren’t posting much anymore. But, they are still lurking there. They seem to log in regularly to check it but post once in a blue moon. The waterfall of interesting albums full of photos and status updates has gradually slowed over the past few years to a pathetic trickle and half of the posts now are just reshared generic photos of cats. But, it’s not dying like myspace where people don’t log in anymore…it’s dying or changing in a different way where people are just sitting back and watching. With more and more people just watching, the show’s getting pretty dull. But still they log in, and watch.

Anyone else, or is this only my group of FB friends?

@Brielle:  I think I’m probably one of those people. I very rarely comment on other people’s posts. But if someone posts on mine, i’ll comment back. I’m more of a browser than interacter. But I don’t want to be rude if someone posts a comment on a picture of me, or something.

@Brielle:  I’ve noticed this! And I would place myself in the second group you described. I usually go on FB 1-3 times per week for about 5 mins. I think I’ve maybe posted 5 things in the past 6 years on my own feed, and one of those was about my bestie. I’m more likely to comment on other people’s things, and I only say something if it’s positive! If not, I just keep it to myself.

@joya_aspera:  I have noticed this, too.  My news feed is full of news stories, links, and memes.  My friends rarely post personal photos or status updates anymore.

@Brielle:  I hardly ever post status updates myself. I’ll share funny articles or pictures every now and then, though.

I guess I just watch my newsfeed and if I see something funny or just something that interests me, I will “like” it or comment on it. I don’t normally actively seek out specific peoples’ profiles unless they pop into my head for some reason.
