What's wrong with recommending things that worked for you to others?

I mean, I know you really enjoyed that beer you had, but to highly recommend it to others.....

Fake it til you make it.

I've never had a facebook account. I treasure my privacy, I cannot sell my soul to marketing agencies.

Technically you can write a novel outlining well thought out beliefs, but in general the format favors quick, one or two sentence comments.

So I do my very best to avoid political discussions on FB. I mostly succeed. Mostly.
I agree with the OP and the comments above... Even on the political section on HBT results in nothing more that short posts that tend to get a hostile tone.

Afterwards its nothing more than being SPAMed with one or two line comments of intermingled useless facts and/or opinions.

IMHO - Its nothing more than a hit and run mentality,

Congrats on saying screw-it.

I have face book account that I rarely use, I kind found it to be pointless after awhile. I would spend more time here. After my son was born, I had less time for this as well.

I really don't like the fact that employers monitor it with zeal. I had a very recent reminder of this when I saw a potential strike notice that was discovered on FB. A corporate email came out stating a local UAW-related labor group was trying gin up some type a day of action.

The fact that big brother watches it, I'm staying away from it altogether.

"de-activated" mine about a month ago...

Okay, that's harsh - they're not all losers, but I agree with the above posts - too much bashing, political crap, and "honey, pick up some milk on the way home"
I'm out and glad of it.

your account will eventually get deleted. at least it used to.

I deactivated mine in August. I never kept much personal info on there, didn't see why FB needed my cell # and address and I always use a fake birthday on websites anyway.
I still have my google+ account which has even less information on it. I use it strictly for games and have 500+ "friends" who I don't even know.

Not everyone has issues with FB. The software is not evil. The way some people use it can be frustrating.

I use it a few times a week. I don't understand how people can get "addicted" to it. I've found it very handy for sending and receiving some messages to some people.

The simple thing is to weed out the people who you know you won't care to hear from, resist when you know your response is going to be taken as mean or insulting, even if they deserve it, and not get bent out of shape when someone else has a different opinion on something.

I have several 'friends' who are not related to me and frankly aren't that close. I usually appreciate their posts. And I don't have my MIL or FIL on there because of the BS I had to put up with when they split. No reason given. Just removed. They never asked and it's so much better to just remove than to argue with them in a semi-public place.
