No offense, but...

I am growing weary of Facebook. It's neat in some ways, and nice to be in touch with some folks from the past, but I am tired of ball-hogging folks who feel FB is the appropriate place to throw up a new propaganda post every 3 minutes or so, no matter what their political views.

Seriously thinking of quitting it altogether, but for now, if you find I have I un-friended you, your dozens of tedious posts per hour were the reason why.

I gave up on it over two months ago. Haven't missed very much either.

Life is too short already. Don't have time for Facebook/Myspace/Twitter/et al. Not to mention that I really don't feel like sharing anything about myself with people I don't personally know. And yes, I know I don't "personally" know you, but I know enough to know you're good people.

Plus, Brigid and LD like you bunches, and that means a lot too.

My daughter is far away in Taiwan so I stay with it just to see what she is up too. I usually just delete friend requests cause if they are friends we can talk without it. My daughter posts a lot including pictures so it is useful for me.

Never did it, couldn't start, don't have anyone I really want to get re-ignited with, either. Don't touch me! ;-)

LOL, I 'only' used it for the kids, and I haven't been on it in a month or more...

That is true! Facebook nowadays is annoying rather than interesting.

I have enjoyed FB and reconnected with some (literally) old school mates. I've restricted my list pretty tightly, and find I almost never get the political stuff, only a couple of causes, which so far I handle by hiding. Seems it is going more commercial, too. I was reading that so many social media are changing and growing. I've enjoyed it. But I get tired as well. Twitter won't do. There will be something else.

I nuked my FB account well over a year ago, and haven't looked back.

I have far too many things I'd rather spend my time doing....like blogging!

I used to be on FB much more often, then I began blogging.
I still stop by, but don't say much.

Never got on FB because of trying to duck a stalker. Don't see much point to it, either, but then I'm one of those introverted types.

Yeah, I have the issues I care deeply about, but you can't just talk about those ALL DAMN DAY. Geez.
