what are your thoughts on facebook?

in my case, facebook seems to be sucking the life out of millions of people. it prevents people from actually interacting, and most it is just instant messaging bullshit drama. what do you think?

    I deactivated my Facebook page 18 months ago; permanently deleted it in May. A very Zen moment, that it was. I don't regret it at all. I have no problem keeping in touch with my friends. I did so just fine before I got into social networking. Besides, many of my "friends" on Facebook were either:

    A) Someone I'd met once at a party and made no effort to contact since, and vice versa;
    B) Someone I know from [insert school or workplace] and am on friendly terms with, but probably wouldn't invite out for lunch or for a drink, and vice versa.

    As time went on, my resentment of the social network grew. If Facefuck were more enjoyable (i.e., more than just a dumping ground for shitty memes and viral videos), then perhaps it wouldn't bother me so much that it has sucked most of the internet into its vortex. Not only do I have a glaring ethical problem with their random censorship and blatant disregard for user privacy, but their Edgerank system dictates what appears on your wall and deems many of your friends' posts unimportant, instead highlighting contentious political posts of the worst kind.

    Edit: Whoever created this deserves a prize:

    Deactivate it! Nothing is more liberating.
