Sorry, I don’t have Facebook

Do you have Facebook?

“Do you have Facebook?” I remember that question from many old friends. My best answer is “No, I don’t.” Some of them laughing and did not believe that I don’t have it. “Come on, make one,” that they general advice for me. When I told them that Facebook only waste my time and useless, they laugh loudly and called me old fashion man. Is it wrong if I don’t have a Facebook?

Social network is like contaminated diseases. Few years ago, people use the Friendster, yesterday is own a blog, and today are Facebook, Tweeter, and others. What about tomorrow? What about after Facebook? Some people thought that having a Facebook is necessary, but for others is stupidity. Social network is effective for some people who use it wisely. In other side, it is waste your time, exhausted your vital energy for good works, and makes your computer or phone as “garbage” of some nonsense words. Above of all, social network is a huge business, Mark Zuckerberg the CEO and co-founder of Facebook is youngest billionaire today. He laugh loudly and wrote, “I am a CEO, b**ch!” in his business card when begun Facebook.


I don’t have Facebook

There is tons of word from people who did not like Facebook. Some of them hate it deadly. Do they need to show their expression? Many people wrote in the internet that they have best reasons why they did not like Facebook. Most of the reason: Facebook is useless, etc. Yes, some of their reason is good and reasonable.

Maybe people has same hat, but not of them have same thought. What is wrong about Facebook is not totally about Facebook as a network system. It is because of the human behavior of Facebook user.

Facebook user closed or never joint Facebook because annoyed and irritated behavior like update some comment, note, or photos that meaningless, such ‘going for lunch’, ‘at toilet’, ‘drive to office’, etc. You will be crazy if your phone ‘ring’ many times just because of the rubbish update like that.

Maybe I am not as tough as some person who until know keep on did not sign the Facebook. I am honest to you, I already have a Facebook. I signed it just for the sake an old friends; campus mate and wife who ‘fans’ of Facebook. I did that because it is very annoying for me to explain for friend why I don’t have Facebook. It is better to sign and stop giving them explanation.


Why should hate Facebook?

I don’t like Facebook, but I did not see any reason to hate it. Facebook is just a choice: sign or not sign. I fail to keep answering friends with ‘I don’t have Facebook’. I am so sorry to make you upset. I hope you use social network wisely.

Funny actually - especially when you see the little Facebook "like" button right next to your title! "Just because everyone does" is seldom a good reason to do anything...

Perhaps there are more out there who do not have a facebook. I for myself had one years ago but decided to commit "facebook-cide" .. Yep, this is what I use whenever anyone asks my facebook page... or "can't find you on facebook"! Sorry dear-new-acquaintance-who-wants-to-be-a-friend ...I committed facebokocide many years ago and am still content.

Its rather peculiar how so many wonder in amazement that I am such socially unacceptable and in so many ways "do not exist" in the virtual world.

I am not old (33), I am not antisocial, i am not trying to make a statement nor I am trying to escape the net's control and screening... I just prefer the old fashioned way of "How are things going with you!?"

I admit that facebook does have potential and benefits but its just too much information and eventhough I am someone's friend on the list.. I usually end up a name on a list. I prefer a skype call or an email once a month thank you very much!

So I suspect I will still hold on as I am not least tempted to open up a facebook... I do not dare say its a bad thing about those who have and enjoy a large following but at the end of the day, I think people prefer the virtual world to the real one.

When did you meet those on your list last?
