For the record, I can't stand Facebook. I made an account in early 2007, began deactivating periodically a few years later, each time for a few weeks, then finally deactivated after Christmas and have let it remain closed and don't miss it. I hated their policies, I hated how they changed the site each time, and I hate how most people clog up Facebook with nonsense that has nothing to do with them (i. e. posting links to news stories or pop culture). It was hardly about keeping in touch anymore, it was a platform for people to exaggerate their lives and broadcast it to people that they don't even want to see or talk to. All of this, hardly safe!
When Facebook is brought up by me or someone else (on this site or otherwise), the general reaction is how much people hate it, or they claim not to really use it. I think people just don't want to admit they are Facebook addicted.
If people hate it so much, why keep it and keep logging in? And the excuse that we all have friends we normally wouldn't be in touch with doesn't really work when we have email. Obviously if the person logged in to Facebook, they have one, and you can just as easily keep in touch with pictures and news by email just like we did before it came out.
Why do people keep kidding themselves and keep feeding Facebook their statistics if they claim to dislike it so much?

2 years ago I deactivated my facebook for good and I will say the first week was strange as that is a go to when bored, but now, I love not having it. I do hate when I say I don't have one and people react shocked like I am committing some atrocity by not having one lol.1
