Facing the World without Facebook?
I often wonder how many of us today do not have a Facebook account. If we don't, are we among the "faceless" minority of a world saturated with "faces" that everyone and anyone can see? Are we handicapped by our lack of presence on the book that describes, defines, elucidates, elaborates us to the world at large? Yes, I wonder. I wonder because I do not have an account there and do not feel tempted to have one either. Frankly, it mortifies me to think I could be an "open" book! But that is just me. Maybe, I am just happy to be faceless.
I do not have one nor does my husband. He had one for a brief period because his children would't tell him important things. They said if you want to know then get a face book account. With seeing things he wanted to know came crazy unwanted stuff in both our families we were better off not knowing. Fighting, gossip complaints and just too much information. DELETE!!!! Maybe we do live in the dark but for us the stress was too much in our already too busy life. Hasn't killed us yet. We are surviving with out it just fine.
In my opinion you're not missing much. I have a FB page and got the account with the idea of keeping connected with my family and friends spread all over the US. There are times I don't even know why I have it because, even when I leave a comment or post something in my "status" I feel totally ignored when no one (even family) ever responds to what I say.
Here, here.....I am another Face-less being....and have no intention of joining FB. Have never even been tempted. I did have a dumb experience a few years back. Wanting to SIMPLY contact a friend whose phone # & address I no longer had....I remembered her saying she was on FB....SO, I thought I could hop on....leave her a message and hop off...and cancel and erase my existence. Was I in for a big surprise. I was dormant of course and never ever used it...but my FB ID and that damned shadow person was on there forever. It's like the Twilight Zone..only spookier!
Once you enter...you're DOOMED for all eternity.
In any event.....I share your opinion.....especially your last 3 sentences.
I am way too much of a private, solitude-loving woman.
BTW.....I couldn't help but notice that you joined HP 11 months ago and have not written a hub. Is there anything I can do or say to help give you a gentle push?
I have a feeling you have a lot to offer! Just let me know.

Ok, just for fun - because you know we all have our little gripes that in the grand cosmic scheme of things don't really matter. What little annoying thing is troubling you today that no one really cares about - except you. (it's supposed to be a fun thread, not negative by the way -...

Why is it that there are people in the world that seem to not want a world with God in it?When I see all the chaos around me I feel it is an essential part of my life to have the faith that I do in God. Yet when conversating in this forum I most often get verbally attacked by those whom I would...
