Dope or Nope

Facebook ... this has become the biggest "social" site in the U.S. (and maybe the planet - not sure about that, though). Facebook is a way to reconnect with long lost friends and family, post what you're doing, view pictures of friends and family, and become fans of cool things.

Facebook can also be a time-waster ... addicting games that seem to drain hours out of your life. Facebook can also be a tool for stalking, potential identify theft, and computer virus spreader.

Where do you stand (or sit) with Facebook? I'm a Facebooker, but really, I only spend about 15 minutes a day on it (if that). I'm there to read other people's updates, update my status (if I have something witty to say), and play a few games of Bubble Popp.

How 'bout you?

I like Facebook because it's put me in touch with old friends, some of whom I've gotten together with.

I don't do the games or open up anything that comes in my email and have all my settings set on private.

I use Facebook as a promotional tool. Sometime I will go on just to talk to friends and family, but mostly I used it to promote things on my site through NetworkedBlogs. I used to be a heavy user, but I shook that habit.

Some people on Facebook tend to copy statuses and post them on other sites. I did a post on that topic a few days ago: http://www.realliveman.com/2010/03/facebook-statuses-we-were-never-meant.html

Ahhh facebook.... where do I start? I hate the fact that assclowns that I went to school with that I never talked to before now want to be my friends. I hate when people I know through a friend of a friend of a friend want to be my friend and then when I see them in public they act like they don't know who I am. I also hate that people I work with want to be my friend which means I can't bitch about work.

I did some facebook friend dumping about a week ago and it felt great.
