    I spend more time on hubpages!  Facebook kind of gets boring!

    I've definitely been on HubPages a lot more lately! Facebook is rather boring once you're done with the comments and messages.

    No contest!  I dropped Facebook like a hot potato after my computer picked up a particularly virulent virus from the site that burrowed deep into the hard drive and was expensive to eradicate.

    I really felt I was wasting my time on FB anyway. I can say "hi" to friends and family via regular email, and don't especially want to know the minute-by-minute status of a "friend of a friend of a friend", so I don't miss Facebook at all. In fact, I felt liberated once I closed my FB account, and no longer felt I needed to check my FB page. All the apps on FB seem like silly time-wasters to me. (Maybe that's my age speaking.)

    As for Hubpages, I've been fascinated by this community of writers ever since discovering it five months ago. I love reading what other people write and have made friends here. I like posting my own writing, and enjoy the comments made by my "followers." There's nothing like Hubpages! your heart out!

    I now spend more time on Hubpages than Facebook.  I always thought Facebook was a little bland anyway.  I never figured out why everyone switched from Myspace to Facebook.

    I was becoming a FB junky around the same time that I decided to step it up on Hubpages and take it seriously.

    Now I use Facebook and Twitter to post links to my Hubs and sometimes other writer's Hubs that I like to share. I do this mostly as a marketing tool, although I can't say that it has a huge influence on traffic. I am trying to work on that!

    I check my FB account here and there, I don't play the games or use the chat (with the exception of my wife sometimes). I like to post things that are worth reading!

    Used to be Facebook, but I like how on Hubpages you don't know anyone, so you don't have to worry about how the stuff you write will affect you when you get off the computer. You can write about anything you want, help people out, its much more fun than Facebook!

    HubPages, hands down. Actually, I am closing my Facebook account tomorrow. It just doesn't appeal to me at all. HubPages offers a reward for working hard, FB is only social at best.

    I spend much more time on hubpages, I almost spend no time on facebook. But that's not because I don't like fb anymore, but I can't reach it because of the Chinese firewall.

    I tend to hate Social Networking in general. All of my friends I still talk to on the phone or through texting so FB is really stupid to me. I also hate how the world seemed to never hear of social networking until FB came around. You never saw Myspace or Xanga or any of the older sites get an award winning movie about them. It's stupid this fascination where people spend hours upon hours looking at a dull blue and white screen over and over again. For me, Hubpages is so much better because there are the social network aspects but there is the writing element. If I have a poem I want to put out, then I come on here. If I want to put my two cents out on a current trend, movie, etc. I come on here. It's better and I actually like to read what people put on here because so far I haven't run into a bunch of idiots putting a status update on their profile, and I wouldn't want them to.
