But don't you think he has a point? Facebook is only so useful as a communications device, at some point we still need to say "hey man lets hang out more."

My facebook acc includes the 110 ppl that i know, care about, would be willing to hear about and from time to time actually send a message to through the easy to use interface it provides because we are 1000 miles away.

Other than that.. facebook is a TERRIBLE, time wasting whole for people who have no confidence, no personal interests, no hobbies, no friends who want to play with them, no games they re actually good at ... and probably another 1000 things they might have been able to do well at some point in their lives (like talking to a girl/guy they just met) and are no longer able to do. they end up feeling awkward around people.. and once they like someone and they re interested in getting to know him.. their favorite topic is "Are you on facebook?" -Yes -"OMG, so am i!" -......

Facebook has many personal and wider social implications, the benefits of which are still under debate and widespread experimentation. This guy however, misses all of that. No thoughtful arguments, he's just whining like a bitch that he doesn't like facebook.

Anyway, he is wasting his time because people WON'T drop facebook. People watching is a primitive thing we all still do which facebook has (for better or worse) equipped with tech. My point - media technology EXISTS so that we can watch ourselves. Silly monkeys, make me giggle. :)

I just find it amusing he seems to think that wanker abbreviations (LOL, ROFL, etc.) come from using Facebook.

I remember seeing that kind of nonsense on BBS's, long before the internet became popular.
Picture of Reaperdaddy39 achievements

i would say he is right in some ways... but it depends on how hardcore you are on using facebook...
On my side, I check it every now and then to mostly see medias posted by my friends (photos, videos or funny stuffs we find on the net...). I also got 300 something "friends", but im aware that 85% are not my friends, Id call them more like "virtual friend that can make me laugh with his post every now and then".

Facebook is a big mosnter, you have to be aware that everything you feed him can come back at you one day or another...
Knowing that, just be aware and use it for the fun...

p.s. i do not have like zillion fake friends, i have few of them, who i really know.

I hate FB with a passion. Total waste of time. Any "friend" or family you're not willing to call in person, email or write directly should not be on any list of yours. Why feel like a database manager every time you log on FB, sifting through countless updates, when you're really only interested in a handful. Why give Z'berg total permission to sell all your thoughts, pictures, contacts, phone numbers, likes and dislike, along with a running commentary of your entire life.

I want to give this video more "good" thumbs! #19 I couldn't agree more. I've deleted my facebook account more than a year ago. It's true what the guy in the video says, I know many people who've set their status to offline, cause they always have 25+ "friends" online willing to chat.. Think I'm gonna go out now ;)

I quite dislike Facebook too... Couldn't agree with the vid's author more. However, for me it's not about having 852 friends. I sure don't. (I have 35 if you must know). I also reject friend requests from just about everyone, including those people I DO know in real life. Why? I ask that we have a real-life chat about it beforehand first.

I use Facebook as a tool. As someone who routinely organizes events, coordinates activities with co-workers for both work and non-work related functions, Facebook is the only way things get done! I learned this the hard way -- sending e-mails, phoning people, leaving messages.... None of it is nearly as effective as sending out invitations or messages in Facebook. Why is that? Beats me. All I know is that it works. It might have something to do with the fact that people spend so much time on there that it's always in their face until and unless they action it... It's harder to ignore than an email that you may only check once a day or less.

I also don't engage in stupidity like playing Mafia Wars, or keeping farm animals, or zoo animals or take online quizzes or whatever the hell else it is that people do online. I rarely ever "chat" unless it's immediately relevant and important to what I'm trying to accomplish. If I want to waste some time, I log onto World of Warcraft. Heh. :D

Facebook should take inspiration from Red Dwarf's Rimmer:

Rather than "Friends" it should be "People I met"

I have a social page, not on Facebook, but on a similar social network.

I hate it.
The only reason why I have it is because my friends have it and tend to invite me for parties and such via this monstrosity.
If it weren't for that (and for looking up people I have just met) I would have deleted my page right away. It's only depressing me, I hate it, and I don't even have a clue who the fuck is in my friendslist! I rather go out and see people in real life, call them, e-mail them or chat with them. Fuck facebook, fuck the "social" network. There is nothing social about it.

Most of his facts were wrong , there is such a thing called privacy options like .....

Facebook can be a great tool , for FACT im "friends" with all the local bars and night clubs so hey its nice to come home on a friday evening from work and get a post from almost everyone of them telling me whats on that night , saves me a lot of time.

As for the friends , i have plenty but only a select few can see all my information or pictures etc etc.

The chat option can be turned off , I do not talk using words like lol and ftw , this guy has a problem with him self not facebook its all in the hands of the user , and for all the people who do spend hours a day wasting time on it bitching about other people and "judging" them well its there fault for having no life and its the other persons fault for puttin there shit out there like that.

One, he sure as hell thinks his hat is more eclectic than mine.
Two, I've seen some pretty nice tits as a result of being on Facebook.
Three, I'm not a social pervert. I have family and friends all across the US and in 2 hemispheres.
Four, What the fuck is a LOLocaust?
Five, I have accepted friends from people I disliked in High School. Why? I grew up and got over it and stopped being a pretentious dick.
Six, I'm just fine with who I am, I *AM* better than my profile, because my profile is a very small basic part of me and a part that I use for a very small portion of my interactions with other people, that being said, the portions that I do use are infinitely important (see above about my family).

I'd post up more but I need to go check on my town in cityville :P

I'm one of those people that actually use facebook to network. If you are not actually my friend then my settings are configured on my profile to show you nothing more than my contact info. Its like having a virtual business card.

I have an account.

I have about 17 friends that have access or don't have access to my photos/information.
I know these people and have spent time with them at some point in life.

Facebook is a tool.
The User is to blame for "the madness".

Perhaps "Friendstock" is the only drug these people can comfortably self medicate with in order to ease their strife?

Either way, I totally get what this man is saying and agree with him but I use Facebook responsibly and am not addiction-prone.

I don't have an account on Facebook. But not primarily because of the shown reasons, but because of the ignorance of privacy by the Facebook organization. I don't want to become dependent from a network complete owned by tough businessmen without respect.
Basically i agree with the message of this well done video. But I wouldn't take everything so earnest.

i use facebook for a couple reasons only.
1. i don't get to see my personal friends very often thanks to working and them moving away.
2. because im doing work to my house and want to show my friends what im doing and its easier then webcam
3. because half my family lives in England and i Live in Australia.
4. Because i can chat to people who i've lived with or have been friends with while travelling the world and keeping in contact with them.

I delete anyone i have not talked to in over 4 months. If i do not talk to you, then your removed. Nothing personal, but if we don't talk, there is very few reasons for these people to be on your list.

You can be on it all day but not actually be on it all day. I generally just leave it open or my phone is logged in, I use it to get messages as its free compared to a SMS.

Beware of games! Really.! Get a life, those games are for one reason only, to make you buy something! I bet you feel like a coke or a dick enlargement right now?

Last of all, I work in IT. i'm on a computer all day anyway. I might as well have communication to the out side world.
And he looks like someone i used to know. (same for anyone else?)

You can't brag about sex on facebook, if you don't get out of the room/house :) And if you get out, you're not on facebook. And if you're not on facebook, you can't talk about having sex.
