Facebook update / Twitter thread

Just a thread to say what you're doing since I'm boycotting Facebook. And because I wasn't sure where to post this:

Danelady just called me and told me to tell you all, "HI!" and that she's almost in Houston, and is hoping to get sent back to Arizona where her laptop cord is so she can come on the forum! *sigh* I'm in love with that lady.

I wish I could add a like button to this thread. I guess the Thanks with have to suffice.

Re: Facebook update / Twitter thread

Thanks for doing this every bit helps. Facebook bites and it's time for it to take it's place in the dustbin of history. There is an open source Facebook type site called diaspora but it's just starting and I don't think anyone can join it yet it's just in beta form.

Re: Facebook update / Twitter thread

Why do you hate facebook? I'll admit I don't have a lot of use for it, but I like to stay in contact with people who are hundreds to thousands of miles away from me.

Is this somekinda anti-conformist thing?

Re: Facebook update / Twitter thread

I hate how Mark Zuckerburg has made billions off of someone else's idea. I hate that Mark Zuckerburg is the new Bill Gates doing nothing original and just stealing ideas from everywhere else taking engineers from Google etc. Bottom line I had the worst social experience there. I was so ADHD, posting hyperly and someone started a thread saying I was the biggest c*nt on Facebook and I was asking people to help me not be that way and they're like sorry u r what u r c*nt. I hate how people kill themselves from people bullying them. And yes I am an anti-conformist. Bottom-line all the people I care about don't use the site and that speaks volumes to me. I am a tribal man and my tribe says Facebook bites.

Re: Facebook update / Twitter thread

Almost all businessmen are thieves, Esh. The free market is the same thing as a legalized global mafia, just as war is nothing more than a legally sanctioned form of bullying/mass murdering.

He who has the most/best soldiers makes the rules. And we're all guilty of playing the game.

Sorry about your bad FB experience. I limit my posting on it to almost nothing due to my inclination towards foot-in-mouth syndrome.

Re: Facebook update / Twitter thread

I think it all comes down to being in a place where I feel comfy. Throughout the day I rarely have much choice in that matter. I have to show up at work, have my car fixed, do my shopping etc. and interact with people whom I for the most part have not chosen personally and with whom I find it hard to communicate and find common ground.

For me, facebook is a mirror of that world. Thankfully I have a choice what to do with my free time and I limit my interaction there and instead prefer to frequent this place instead which is filled with people who are more compatible with me.

Re: Facebook update / Twitter thread

I have little use for facebook aside from occasionally sharing photos with relatives I don't get to see often, and it's a convenient way to see stuff that's going on with others if you're a shy person like me.

Oh yeah and I recently bragged about the yummy enchiladas my mom made for dinner the one night....Wooo...

I have alot of old friends on there too but I haven't talked to most of them for a very long time.

I'm not active enough on FB to hate it.

That pretty much sums up the reason for my boycott.

Re: Facebook update / Twitter thread

It gets kinda weird when I get requests for friendship when I don't even know the people. At first I allowed it then when I realized how much Facebook can show what ur doing like with my Youtube account I realize I don't want everyone to know everything about me. I do keep the account just for relatives on my ex-side who live very far away but really I don't visit the site very often and I haven't found anyone who I can see in person who does. It makes me scratch me head thinking what type of person goes on here everyday cause I haven't met one and again I hope Facebook is replaced by a more private type site engineered by Google real soon.

Re: Facebook update / Twitter thread

Private?

This is the internet you're talking about, right?

We live in a very un-private era, where it is easy as hell to dig up information on pretty much anyone. My wife was blown away at some of the stuff an opposing lawyer pulled up on us. Fortunately, we are upstanding people with practically no skeletons worth flaunting, but that didn't stop him.

My wife was shocked. I just shrugged my shoulders because I knew he was going to go all the way back to our births---and he did.

I find facebook to mostly be tripe, and as our esteemed Vulcan has pointed out: A little too uncomfortable to linger in very much. Besides, I don't give a s*** about how some chick I went to HS with twenty years ago had a great Thanksgiving, or a cousin I haven't seen since I was eight talk about the 'tater tots he had for dinner.

But it does have its uses; namely, as a tool for contacting and keeping in touch with certain folks. I barely use mine, my wife uses her's even less, and I will not let my kids have one despite: "all of our friends have facebooks and cell phones! Jezze, Dad--you're so mean!"

Like all things on the internet, FB is just a fad. It will indeed get replaced at some point by something even more annoying.

Re: Facebook update / Twitter thread

I am making important life choices when not on FB or Twitter.

Like today I took the time to figure out who out of the Heavy Metal Pirate bands I like the most. Easy choice, took one cd each but I am proud to announce Alestorm the victor over Swashbuckle. If the music wasn't good enough, Alestorms singer plays the Keytar, which might be the greatest thing ever to have thinged in Piracy.

Carry on...
