    God I hope not! I really can't stand Facebook. Maybe I'm showing my age but I really don't get the point in it. I only really use it to promote my articles etc. The thought of people spending the majority of their daily lives on there kinda sickens me.

      Lauryallan, resepctfully I think you might have a narrow view.  Facebook is a tool that can be used to communicate about a wide vareity of interests, topics and opinions.

    After reading online why many have decided to quit Facebook, I did too. The main reasons that compelled me to do so was: 1) The individual is supposed to manage their data but is not given complete enough information to do this well enough. 2) They do not value the user’s ownership of their own data.

    I started using it because my kids wanted to communicate with me that way while they were away at school. Now that they are all married it seems we communicate more by email and phone. So, my original reason for joining is no longer in play. My HP traffic from it is a VERY low percentage of my traffic total. I can always join again later with a name just aimed at my HP site.

    I think so but not for me. They keep sending me manipulative messages. When I get on, all they want is permission to use my main email address. I give them as little info as I can. They got my friend on the site, but he never asked for an account. He got angry at me. I think he thought I put him on the site. The site is somewhat evil, I think in their quest to make money.

    Yes!!  Having a Facebook account will be as importnat as having a phone in the not so distant furture.  It will be the primary way adverstisers will communicate with you and will be able to be intergrated into daily communciation with family, friends and co-workers.
