Facebook good or not?

I know alot of you guys have a facebook account, my wife has one and my friends all have one also. I just don't really see why I need one. It just everything now has something to do with facebook. This is as close as I get to a facebook like account. I don't see the "big picture" on having it.

Just avoid it, unless your using it to stay in contact with old friends. its freaking pointless, nothing but drama and stupidity, chain letters, stupid photos, and hoes.

but i'm 17 and i use it to keep track of said hoes.

I had a FB account but deleted it about a year ago due to drama. If you have a jealous or sick ex be careful on FB lol. Mine created a false account and was creating a sh$tstorm of drama and messaging my current GF...so I deleted it. I dont need it. I dont need to know that you're getting a haircut,I dont care that your boss just dumped a bunch of work on you and you hate Mondays. I dont need to be,or need people to be THAT involved in my or their lives. I dont care to know what is going on with you every hour throughout your day ya know? If i need to get ahold of someone I will call or txt,if someone needs to get ahold of me they know how. FB is a conduit for people(not all)to say "look at me and what Im doing". JMO. Plus,I feel its a way for people to access to much personal info on,regardless if you have security restrictions setup on your profile. Especially in this day with ID theft and all that. Dont get me wrong,Im not saying FB is crap...I just prefer not to use it. I know people where FB is a very valuable tool for far away loved ones and friends,but I dont necessitate that.

91 GT,stock bottom end,GT40P heads,fully ported/matched Cobra lower/upper intake,Pro-M 80mm MAF,worked over BBK 70mm TB,BBK cold air intake,30 lb. inj.,E303,MAC 1 3/4 longtube headers,MAC Prochamber h-pipe(coming soon),40's dumped,3.73's,Cobra disc X4,booster,adj prop. valve,ECM..yadayadayada...

lol I can't help but laugh at people who say Facebook is "drama".

If you have "drama" on Facebook you probably have it in your everyday life too. I have never had any sort of problem on Facebook but I am a grown man and only add people on there that are or at one point have been a friend or an acquaintance I talk to frequently.

I have facebook. I use it to keep track of events, and to stay in contact with alot of my family, especially as they live in England and I'm at college in Kansas. There is a bit of a time difference so we don't have alot of opportunities to have a phone conversation. And I can see my aunt's artwork. She is graduating from University in England this summer with a degree in fine arts.

I have an FB account but I almost never look at it. Its getting to be so bad now that when I get to work someone will be mad at me and after digging I find out its because they sent me a friend request and I didn't add them. They usually calm down when I explain I haven't logged in since Christmas. I got it to try to locate some high school buddies from a long time ago, and we ended up hooking up. Now I rarely mess with it.

Absolutely! I find in my experience that all the people who complain about drama are usually part of the problem. "Hoe A" will complain about the drama that "Hoe B" is causing between Baby Daddy 1" and "Baby Daddy 2". But "Hoe A" is banging both Baby Daddy's in her free time. It's like a train wreck; no matter how bad it is you can't stop watching.

Edit...apparently we can't say SL UT
Edit #2...apparently we can't say WH0RE either

Facebook, IMO, has it's uses. Just be aware of the drawbacks : loss of privacy and personal info, viruses and spyware from the various games and apps.
Potential employers can look at your past without your permission or your knowledge. A friend of mine that works a big corporation and does hiring says they do look up job applicants on FB.
So it's not really "free" social networking.

Set that shlt to private, if you don't have it set that way and you miss out on a job because of it you didn't deserve said job anyway.
