I am a 33 year old grad student who refuses to join the myface or the spacebook. Personally, I like my privacy. Professionally, I work in mental health and the ability of some whackjob to track me down thru facebook creeps me out.

I know I'm not alone. Who else has eschewed the digital social networks and why?

I've had a look at it and it looks stupid. I'm old I guess. Good for kids and girls, IMO. Flame on.

Failbook is for twats and teenagers. My mother, her sisters, just about everyone I know under the age of thirty all have failbook accounts. I wouldn't join if someone put a gun to my head.

I'm on it, but I dont do anything on it at all. I dont think I've done anything in like 3 months. People spend waaaay too much time stalking other people on it; waste of time......time that could be spent thinking about beer

See, I've heard the old explanation, but my grandmother, professors, damn near everyone I know is on it--many of whom I consider to be intelligent people. I think perhaps you just have a modicum of self respect

i joined it a couple years ago, just because i'd never seen it and didn't know what it was about. stayed there 3 days, found out most every1 there is a loser with nothing to do but talk about their boyfriends and husbands ( males and females doing that ) and jetted with a message about it being too much hens cackling, tweeting (which i can't understand doing), and bs no1 cares about

Thank you for your reply, but out of respect to Yooper and all the rest of us who still have a fundamental appreciation for the English language, please refrain from any further use of textspeak in this thread...

LinkedIn for professional stuff, facebook for family and very close friends. If some non-close friend has something going on I need to know about, I get it one way or another. Nothing but trouble on facebook. I got on with facebook after myspace ****ted the bed. Now facebook has **** the bed. I can sympathize with people on both sides of social networking participation.
