Very much over facebook… So tired of how everything gets blown out of proportion, then passed around like wild fire. 

Feeling more “If everything is important, then nothing is.” mixed with the photo below:

I find it helps to only add people whose lives you’re interested in. I don’t add people who are cryptic/dramatic/etc. I enjoy social media.

Honestly I only use facebook to communicate to my Fiance who lives states away from me, and comment on Anne Rice’s page. Sometimes I scroll through my friend’s pages and see posts polical/social issues that I either disagree with or is about something negative. I usually unfriend the people who do that the most… and I’m slowly running out of friends on the FB.

I’m have a love/hate relationship with FB and if it wasn’t for having to have it as a means to communicate with Fiance I wouldn’t be on it like I am.

I’ve rarely been on FB since January.  I too deactivated my account but I’ve also been on once in a while to see if I really missed anything big.  Nope, just the same old crap.

My husband deactivated about a year ago and I did recently. I just see no use for it! Like you mentioned it’s nice to keep up on the people having big life events but the day-to-day of it is just SO mundane!!!

Sunshine09:  People still use facebook?

Seriously though I haven’t posted anything in years and only check occasionally to see updates and amazing travel photos from a handful of friends. Also, dogspotting.

Yep! I recently deleted mine. I have Instagram but I found myself confusing Facebook friends and real friends. Human connection and reaching out via telephone and one on one quality time spent together makes a friend… Not status update likes and birthday shout outs… I didn’t spend much time on it but the time I did spend on other people’s highlight reel took me from my life and my family… Working on my own highlights 😉

I’ve gotten sick of it as well, I’m annoyed by a lot of the senseless nonsense.  I have a few ‘friends’ that post funny stuff so it’s amusing in that respect.  I like seeing updates from family and friends out of state, and big life events stuff.  I mostly keep mine active to share pictures of my son with family I don’t get to see much.

I used to be a pretty heavy FB user, but I just made my first Facebook post in two weeks.  I’m over having to double-check lists and privacy settings in order to keep my relatives and other people whose friend requests I feel obligated to accept out of my business.

The people I actually want to interact with are on Snapchat and Twitter, so that’s where I am these days as well.

I use it to keep up with my friends and family, but outside of that yeah I’m over it. My major point of contention is just the ignorant things people put up, which is basically your run of the mill,”You don’t deserve $15 an hour! Go out and get a better job if you don’t like it!” and then everything just kind of falls off of a cliff.

Sunshine09:  Ugh yes. One girl I used to work with got in a bad car accident and she posted all the pics of her injuries and her car, hospital selfies, etc. It was awful and I felt bad for her but then, the next minute she’s posting how she’s at the beach and going to the clubs and drinking but “not so fun on crutches :/” After partying she posts “Ugh, really need prayers right now…”. Okay, let’s not petition for prayers when you’re clearly well enough to be clubbing at the beach.

I also HATE people who seek sympathy when it isn’t warranted. My best friend died 3 years ago. There was a girl he talked to through texting a few times (they never met in person), he was trying to hang out with her and she always refused so he just stopped talking to her. Well, since he passed away she’s posted all over FB how her ‘best friend’ and her ‘love’ died and how heartbroken she is and how much she misses him on a daily basis. I know I can’t dictate someone’s grief and everyone handles these situations differently but I know for a fact their contact never went past a handful of texts. She’ll post “my guardian angel” tagging him in stuff and it really upsets me. He was my best friend and her using his death for likes, comments, and sympathy really irks me.

I just unfriend the annoying people. I used to be really into facebook had had like 700 friends, now I have about 100 and probably half of that is family. I use it to keep up with friends and family because I live in a different state than all of my family and most of my old friends.

Sunshine09:  That’s my soon-to-be-ex sister-in-law to a T… Seriously, we moved and had a going away party…She spent the whole time talking about how much pain she was always in, claiming she had lupus (a lie, btw), how her vagina always hurt during sex, etc… And this happened every family event, every visit, and all over facebook all the time.
