I can't imagine not having my FB account. Sure I spend too much time on it. But I'm a military guy. Easily the best way to keep in touch with everyone from back home and elsewhere that I've met.

I deleted my FB a while back too. I still talk to the people I want to and I feel so much better. In retrospect it was a big waste of time and mostly just people looking to get "likes"
I left mostly for professional reasons, but too much garbage on FB.

Now THAT is a GOOD reason to keep it.

No, just kidding. It's me. Pay your $25 and come on over, you'll have a blast.

So you can rest your case, but if I'm on the jury, I'm unconvinced.
So I express my opinion and you get on me for it? I rest my case.

Oh, don't worry...this isn't really on my case like usually in a political forum, but hopefully you see the irony in your post.

"THICK SKIN A MUST!" Hmmm.... sounds like I might have to do some exploring.

There's your mistake. I never have or never will post anything controversial on facebook. At best, you will get people who agree with you, but most likely you will also piss off a lot of people.

I am 25 and all my good friends and I keep our facebook updates to a minimum and steer clear of any controversy. It goes beyond politics, too. I don't want to hear about how you just ran three miles. I don't care that you checked into a boring restaurant with your clingy girlfriend. I don't want to see pictures of your food you are eating. I don't want to read a thinly veiled attack on a friend you just got in a fight with. I don't give a flying **** that you decided to stay in tonight drinking margaritas and watching some ****ty movie on Netflix. (Let's be honest, you do that every Friday night.)

I have unsubscribed from over half my facebook friends because of stupid **** like this. It would be satisfying to post this on facebook, but then I would be breaking my own rule. I love facebook and use it all the time, but people need to learn how to use it properly, which most of the time means shutting up.

Yeah, I just wanted some outside opinions and discussion on something we were talking about at work. It's frustrating to me that we can't have a normal discussion without someone taking things personally or making it personal. That's the problem.

What do you use your FB for?

What do you use your FB for?
Staying in touch with friends, organizing and finding events, sharing photos, promoting my brewery, keeping up with the brewing industry, following record labels and artists I like, looking at girls photos for bikini shots

Don't get me wrong, I love facebook. People who delete facebook usually never used it much in the first place. If you get annoyed, just unsubscribe from people until your news feed is just good stuff. I usually give someone one chance, but if they keep it up, they're out. I never defriend anyone because I think that's petty and mean, though.

I am friends with a lot of my parents' friends, and I gotta say that their generation is so much worse than mine with this ****. Just an endless spew of polarizing political bull****. I thought people knew not to talk politics in polite company...why is facebook any different?

Facebook is too exciting. Every morning I hurry to my computer to find out what horrible things I wrote to friends, family, and colleagues on Facebook the night previous while under the complete control of that which obliterates precious inhibition.

Without this morning procedure my day would be stable and dull. I would have to resort of a new sort of ritual humiliation. Therefore I vote nay.

No, I can't say I see the irony in simply expressing a disagreement. You expressed your opinion, I expressed mine. I didn't call you names, insult you, or any of the things you said political discussions degrade into.
