    Just wondering how many of you guys use Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family. And if so, how often do you use it?

    I'm considering getting rid of my Facebook cause I feel like I waste valuable IM time on there; it's addictive, haha.

    For me, the only good thing about it is if you were at a party or event and want to see the pictures that everyone else have posted.

    I think having a fan page is fine as long as its for business.

    Personal accounts are a waste of time.... for those of us that still need to work. Some of the people here are making more than enough justify wasting their time on FB or fiddling their thumbs.

    I have a personal account, but it didn't start off that way tho. A few years ago I was into network marketing and was doing the whole "Attraction Marketing" thing. So I created a page to brand myself. But once I stopped doing that type of marketing I decided to use my page for personal reasons.

    I check my page everyday and post updates often. FB, IMO, has become a social hangout spot. Helps with keeping up with fam and friends. And it also helps get those thoughts across that you can't verbally express sometimes.

    Also I am kind of a popular person where I am from. So its fun sometimes to play around on Facebook with people in my hood.

    Agreed.

    Yeah, I'm 19 so just about everyone my age uses it (including myself). I honestly waste so much time on there so I'm thinking of just deactivating it. Possibly deleting it soon. I'll make one again, when I'm rich ;)

    Hahaha, I agree man. It's nice to keep in touch with friends and family on there, but I still find myself wasting a LOT of time on there. I might be better of keeping in touch with family and friends through Skype or something.

    Rofl. That's the prime time to get on BHW ;)

    Yeah man, that's how I was. I just deactivated it. The way I look at it; all the time I spend on there..I could spend on here and IM instead. Gotta prioritize.

    Lmao. Why such hatred? :p

    Its really a waste of time. You cant even delete it. You deactivate it but once you login after that its instantly reactivated.. yes its kinda addictive and its really annoying how I spend more there than I really want to

    I uninstalled the iphone app after some cnut at facebook decided it would be a good idea to put 'friend suggestions' at the top of my feed. I did this when I got some random chinese crap letters as a friend suggest. i swear i would slap that melon headed twat zuckberger in the face with a wet fish. what a nob. I use the main site sometimes to pretend I am well popular. GET IN!

    I login once in a few days to check out whats happening, lol. Doing IM thing already detaches me from social activity. Also, the key thing to stop yourself from wasting much time is to have a restricted friend list. I don't want to really know when the Joe whom I met is a party is going on a walk with his dog.

    exactly, i think my friends list is 20 people.

    no family, just my closest friends that are not local anymore, lots of people from school mainly.

    and because of my small friends list i only check it out once a week to continue the conversations im having with them.

    also i think using facebook to hunt for pussy is totally pathetic, i'd never give a girl my facebook either

    I look at it almost exclusively on my phone. Keeps me detached so that I can focus on more important things, yet gives me the ability to keep up with people I do not get to hang out with much anymore. So I look at it every day, post something maybe once every 2 weeks.

    I just use it to keep up with friends I don't see often and to occasionally post entertaining things or my interesting view on a subject.

    But yea, FB probably was solely started for big brother purposes...
