    I guess I just don’t understand why people hate Facebook/social media. I love Facebook, if simply because I have friends all over the world, and it allows me to keep up with their lives, their kids, their travels.

    @princessggg:  I dislike FB too & am happier without it.  (You should add a poll)

    @vorpalette:  I agree! It’s a great way to stay in touch. Without it I’d lose contact with a lot of people. Anyone who overshares gets hidden or unfriended.

    I think it’s become a necessary evil lol I do agree with@vorpalette:  that it’s really nice to be able to keep up with family and friends that are far away. But I do also think that it’s feeding the “me-centric” mind set. Everyone posting everything about themselves like they’re celebrities has gotten way out of control. I was JUST talking to my mom about this yesterday. People are living their lives like they’re in a play with an audience and it’s beyond ridiculous. Something good happens? “OMG I have to brag about this on facebook” You’re mad? “UGH I NEED to vent on facebook!” You’re going to the gym? Let’s tell facebook! I mean really?? It’s just way too much.

    That being said, I use it and I’ll never be able to be facebook abstinent (lol!) It’s my only connection to my family across country, we’re not close enough to text or call but getting closer because of facebook!

    I don’t hate Facebook itself, I find it useful for sharing photos and messaging friends. But I hate the assumption that most people have that other people genuinely care about every little thing they do. It kind of stems from our celeb worshipping culture. Hence why I never post anything other than photos XD

    I agree w/ @vorpalette: b/c I have friends and relatives all over the world, but I do wish I hadn’t added people who I wasn’t actually friends w/ IRL sometimes.  I don’t really ‘hate’ it, but I am starting to find it boring and useless and a huge waste of time. 

    Honestly, starting an email, skyping, gchatting, etc. w/ a friend or relative is probably a better way of staying in touch anyway.  You can send pictures that way, too. 

    But alas, it exists and I can’t remain abstinent as much as I’d like to.. 🙂

    I don’t hate Fb, but I hate a lot of things people post.  I have it mostly to keep in touch with out of town family.

    I don’t hate Facebook at all. I just block the people that annoy me. I live fairly far away from my family and I have friends all over the place. Although I call and text them, Facebook is great for sharing pictures and group messages. I just think you need to choose your Facebook friends wisely.

    I like Facebook in general – it’s a great way to keep in touch with all of my friends and family.  But I really dislike the sponsored content and new features they’ve been adding recently.  On my newsfeed, I’ll see posts from random people or pages about musicians or other brands I like.  I don’t care what some random magazine has to say about Daft Punk.  If I want to care, I’ll like their page, ok Facebook?  Also the overnight flood of wedding-related content after I changed my relationship status to engaged was downright creepy.

    I can’t say I hate Facebook. It was my thing back in the days. Now I rarely go on Facebook at all-I never upload pictures or post status updates. However, I must say it is nice to stalk people every now and then and see what others have been up to without actually having to contact them for updates!
