It's more about being an attention whore and who likes you the most. (This only applies to those that overuse FB rather than what it is intended for) -The whole posting pics of every few seconds -Or crying or yarning for attention (is getting old).
I <3 GAG. No one knows me here. I'm not here for how much likes I can get but rather to help people the best of my ability.
That itself is more rewarding than any amount of likes.
G&G for sure... I am on Facebook just mostly for Newsfeed and a friend or two that I have that I still communicate with. When it was Just my Egyptian husband and myself a few years back, it was much more meaningful, more magical, he could tell you as well, @Naivebutnice. But nowadays, things have changed, and then One Day my life Changed When... GAG came into my life. xx
I used to like Facebook, but it turned more and more intrusive and stupid. In fact, I think it brought out the intrusive and stupid out of my friends, which is sad.
I could only take so much of the kitten and baby photos, but also the constant shares of videos and "news" clips that people found and thought they were valuable enough for people to know about. Such as "Watch as ghost walks through wall!" -- and of course, it's just camera-play. Yet people eat this shit up and share these things all over FB.
Then there's the personal drama or the over-inflated egos. When I know someone is out doing something fun, I get disappointed when someone stops and pulls out their phone and says, "I wanna post this!" If I'm on the receiving end on FB I think, "Aren't you actually supposed to be enjoying your day?"
And the worst is the phony friendships. I can't even count how many times I heard "we should get together!" and they bottomed out. I would send a PM, or respond to one of theirs, and they can't even answer a text or call after suggesting going for dinner. Too afraid to leave the house. Maybe I hadn't seen them for five years and they are afraid of what I'll think of them now. And the funniest, is seeing them on the street and they quickly look away and dart off knowing you made eye contact because they haven't got the guts to be social in the real sense.
Nope. Done with Facebook. I sent a message to my friends when I left that if they wanted to talk to me, they can get a hold of met the old fashioned way. So far, they have. I finally have texts and calls of people checking to see how I'm doing and to tell me news rather than get ignored online. Now I know who my real friends are. I can probably count about five people. Everyone else was there so I could be one more face on their friends list to show off to the world how popular they thought they were.
Facebook you can't ask questions anonymously... here you can. And I've only been on here for a week or so and I've had some pretty good answers. On Facebook, it will just be your friends giving you stupid answers
