Anyone here who doesn't have an FB account?
What are your reasons for not having one?
1. I talk on the phone with family and old friends, so we don't need FaceBook.
2. I catch up with professional colleagues through email & telephone.
3. And in my hobby of haiku, I'm part of a lively Twitter community, which takes as much (or more) time for fun than I have.
4. If I wanted to do anything more on-line it would be here with HubPages.
I have a Facebook account, but the only thing I really use it for is advertising my hubs. Hypocritical of me, perhaps, but may I add a few opinions anyway?
I have some fundamental difficulties with FB because I think it redefines (and in doing so tends to cheapen) words such as "like" and "friend" (polemical note: in my world "friend" is a noun, not a verb). Also, it claims to promote communication and community, but I think the sort of communication and community it promotes are too abstract to deserve their names. When someone touches me on FB I don't really feel like I've been touched.
I guess my communities are small.
I am doing exactly the same thing and share your attitudes. I just need to figure out how to keep the few "friends" from posting vacation pictures on my page.
Thank you DMhenderson and Larry.. i think im a more private person, i've seen my friends posting all their pics, even with their bikinis for all our friends to see, where they are, where they go.well, i think they really love it.
I have one but do not use it other than for reading notifications that are sent to my inbox. I frankly don't trust the social media sites. I only have one because it's recommended in the freelance world. I'm not interested in people's every movement, nor do I post my activities. If I want you to know everytime I blow my nose, I'll send a text!
hahahah!! brave, you make me smile! thanks for the answer.. (now i know, im not weird..)
No, you're not weird, Spy. You're selective and don't see the value. I'm with you there, girl!
Facebook has more than 800 million users and I believe every American has a facebook account.
I have Facebook, but I do not really like it. It is just to maintain friendship with colleague mate, and family. I just read notification and comment from them and just check it once in a week. thanks
