So it's about attention seeking from the biggest crowd you can find?

But take everything you said and apply it to my problems with using Facebook. I'm a fairly private person, I'm in touch with everyone I want to be in touch with, I don't really do the whole picture thing. The pictures that are most important to me are ones I wouldn't want sharing with a wider audience of people anyway, because they're links to personal moments in time for me, they don't really belong to anyone else other than the people in the photo with me. So are there any other benefits to the site? Again, genuine question.


That's pretty much how I feel about it. I did join but there was not one aspect about it I liked. It was a constant barrage of trivial nothingness that I didn't want to know and there was nothing at all I wanted to post that I wanted everyone I friended to know. The most annoying thing was all the friend requests I got from people who wouldn't give me the time of day day years ago. Hated the bloody place and am so glad I left.

I didn't have Facebook until I went to University, and I'm getting rid of it as soon as I graduate. The reason I got it is that as everyone else is on it, it is so much easier to organise events (especially for the holidays when back home). But it's going in a couple of years anyway, because I talk and write to my friends if I want to contact them.

I don't ever post statuses or anything - in fact, most of my friends don't either.

I just signed up for Facebook now and it seems to want to know everything about me....Its annoying me already.

Also I notice my mate has 234 friends..do you really need to know that many people?

It's not all bad. It's the only way we get to talk to Borstal now he doesn't come around here any more. We get to see Mrs Borstal too but we don't put strange lyrics under photos of her because that's just strange.

There was a bit of a kerfuffle. My friend was pushing me to stand over on his other side and he wanted to stand at the side, so for about five seconds I was just standing looking at his rucksack then he looked behind to see where I was and I just sort of pose there. We both had to crouch though cause he's such a tiny man! If me and her stood upright, we would have towered over him, and I can't be doing that with one of my heroes!

You'll need it when you leave uni because everyone gets lives and jobs and everything gets more depressing and you won't see or speak to each other anymore.

I'm quite lucky in that respect, I still speak to my uni mates and get to meet up with some of them quite regularly for a drink. Plus we all get together at least once or twice a year and get utterly smashed, which isn't bad going since we graduated 11 years ago and most of them are married with kids now.

Haven't seen or spoken to any of my old schoolmates this century though.

I do actually see my uni mates too. Live round the corner from one and go out for drinks with a few others. There's a few I probably only keep in contact with because of Facebook but I was mainly just being the pragmatic realist with the depressing truth everyone knows and loves (Fridays 11pm).
