I find Facebook to be tedious and uninteresting. And the seemingly ever-changing privacy rules are getting old quick.

My only real concern is what will happen to the fantasy league I'm commissioner for in yahoo since I use Facebook to log in there. Anyone have experience with Facebook logins are quitting your account?

The thought has crossed my mind too.
I only log on once every 4 to 6 weeks, and I rarely post. I usually just skim through posts rather quickly to see if anything good is going on. . . . .There usually isn't.....

I would probably do the same and drop Facebook since I hardly post there, but I only stay on because of certain family and friends. He'll I hardly post on twitter also, but when I do tweet it how I feel about things most of the time or what on my mind.

I've thought about it too, just because I spend too much time on it for the amount of crap that people put on (some Dave guy keeps yammering about how he plays kid songs on his "gee-tar") or or is put on on people's "behalf". It is nice to be able to post pics of the the kid in one place so friends and family can see.

I thought of that too, but you can pretty much accomplish the same thing with an email list.

During the election it was the worst, with everyone posting their favorite political comments whether you cared or not. Plus it's not really 'social' media when all anyone posts is political talk, internet memes or some cornball life-affirming saying.

Speaking of gee-tars, I haven't heard much about Jon's playing lately. And Hectic may as well stopped pretending he ever shredded. I bet he barely even thrashed once.

I use Facebook primarily to promote my company. I don't see much need to post that I just got back from the grocery store.

My practice schedule is down slightly. A few times a week or so. Have to pick that up again once everything slows down. Still working on songs and some chord changes when I do have time.

Hang on to your panties Mr. Yesterday was my last day of work. I'm unemployed again.

Till Monday when I start my new full time gig. It's supposed to be a much more normal schedule with 40 to 45 hours being the norm, and rarely evenings and weekends. So I should be able to pick up the old ax again. Since I never post my trivialities on FB with everyone's updates about going to the store, taking the kids to soccer, or game flarf.

Personally I have never used Facebook. I seem to be the only one. No twitter no Facebook. Your have to talk to me or see me to get an outdate.

Sometimes the Facebook privacy bugs me and sometimes I think it's blown out of proportion. HOWEVER Zuckerberg made a statement about Moore's Law and sharing and how he thought Moore's Law applies to sharing as well. It really really bugged me.

Moore's Law is that computing power doubles about every 18 months. He is saying the amount of info we share will double every 18 months.

It's like he's stoked that people could end up sharing more and more and more info in the future. It makes me want to bail. It makes me think Mark wants people to share more and more details and info about their lives that could be used against them. That he almost gets off in the amount of personal info his company has. Creeped me out.

That might just clinch it right there.

I thought everyone abandoned Facebook a year or two ago.
I came back :)

Facebook is a poor excuse for keeping in touch with people you don't want to call up or have a face to face with :(

It's a perfect excuse for that.

That's probably the only reason that I haven't dropped it yet.

I use Facebook all the time, I post pictures of my kids (which I am sure gets old for my kids) but we have so many overseas relatives and they always ask for more pictures.

Well, I did it last night. Deactivated. Now I'll just have to see how I can get back into the baseball league since it's still tied to my facebook login.

I still use Twitter, which is the favorite....by a lot!

And now I have to reactivate it again to keep my fantasy baseball account from going away. :mad: Oh well, maybe I'll learn to like it before I have to do it again.
