Facebook is getting ridiculous

    I am having relationship problems because of Facebook.  "Why don't you comment on my wall?" "How come you don't reply to my 'I love you's' I write on your wall?"

    It's getting out of hand when we fight over Facebook, anyone else suffer from this insanity?

      No. Chances are you'd have the same problem in real life with that person. Maybe it's time you tell her/him the truth about how you feel about him/her.

      I don't really use mine anymore, it just basically sits there. But I understand your perspective, I've had an older gf do the same thing to me before.. the whole "Why don't you comment!?!" and "why didn't you leave a comment on my picture!!!!" and stuff like that. It's not like I was trying to be mean or anything, it's just the the whole social aspect burnt out of me before I even got to it since I came from Myspace.

    I spend time with her, but she likes it to be know over the internet everything we do.  Sometimes when we're spending "quality time" together she insists on facebooking via iPod touch or something, and I have to confiscate it on occasion, idk..

      Yeah that's a woman's way of marking her property! She want's it to be known you're owned!

    ...she's feeling insecure for some reason; i think it is as simple as that; could be there are some friends connected with you that she feels insecure about you connecting with.  some people connect with people they haven't been in touch with for years etc.  and then all of a sudden they are best buddies somehow...my 2 cents.

    I just deactivated my FB account because of two people who were demanding and nosey. I also cut off all contact with them in real life. I also got really tired of all the stupid game requests, defriended a boatload of friends I've never met because they admire my music. I don't want to sound heartless, but other people's insecurities are not my problem. All it does is drive a wedge between them and me. I don't do that to others. I was married 24 years, so I get why it happens, but at this point, I've learned I need to be okay with me and let other people work through their own crap. If, however, when we are in a relationship and we have given the other person a reason to feel insecure, it is a good thing to help them regain their security and trust with us. However, giving into petty demands is not doing anything to help that. It's about feeling good about self, not about giving into demands.

    I don't know if I'll go back to FB or not. Although FB is relenting on privacy issues and making some things better, I have a hunch they are still going to be incredibly self serving and sneaky about a lot of things. I think it's time to just let things simmer and I'll decide whether or not to activate the account sometime later.

      I deactivated too for many of the same reasons.  a couple of relatives were actually fighting online; so I had enough of that.  I had people trying to connect who I had no idea of who they were, etc. - friends of friends.

      I understand Daniel....it gets annoying after a while.....and downright invasive! I don't blame you a bit for deleting your account.

    Yeah FB has become a pain. I never use any of the applications, games and all that. Most of them have viruses or track what you do, which is really the main reason they are made!

    I never want to date anyone and know what their FB account is. Too many ways to misunderstand other guy friends and girlfriends on there. I will delete mine soon, same with myspace.

    yeh, you're probably way to good for her!  I know I would NEVER do that to you!  and how embarrassing!  for everybody to know EVERYTHING you two are doing.  Maybe if you let her know that facebook is considered the social networkin site for dweebs, that would cure her!

    Privacy is serious issue with facebook. You can't even sort your wall messages as per friends and groups, this is big flaw in privacy in almost every social network.

    I think facebook is great for keeping in touch with old friends, especially if you moved out of state. However, it seems to get me more jealous than I would like to admit. Making a relationship "facebook official" is a sad term that I have grown to HATE!

    It's not facebook, it's the people on facebook. Block the ones who drive you nuts. You can also block farmville requests and the like.

    Use the customization buttons; that's what they're there for.

    I love FB ! But I have a fake account. I only use it to get in touch with friends that live far away, and close friends nearby.. They know perfectly well that 'The Monster' is me .  lol

    Funny you should be talking about Facebook. I've got an account but never use it except to post links LOL, but just last week I was talking to a friend whose family members post EVERYTHING on Facebook and its causing problems because someone said something about someone else etc. Also how do those young mothers ever get housework or anything else done when they are onstantly posting drivel - most of which is offensive to at least someone in their family! Its nice to be open about who you are and what you get up to, but this is too much!

    Hi, my name is Chicka-D, I'm a recovering FB addict.

    I never started fights with my man because he didn't post on my wall that he loves me, that's just rediculous.  I think that cheapens the relationship.  I have, however, seen someone admit to cheating on her husband via her status line (Beyond rediculous!)

    My man brought it to my attention that I was spending too much time FBing, and that he was starting to feel neglected.  I felt so horrible.  I now save my FBing for when he's not home.  It's back to being "leisure".  Phew.

    You should really dig a little deeper, if she is asking you to comment and post more on FB maybe she is compensating for the lack of communication in your relationship, Just a thought.

    My girlfriend and I check our FB daily but we don't post or comment to one another.

    Facebook is like a watered down community where people show how little originality they have

    Hubpages is fall of different characters and meaningful discussions
