    When I remember to log in Facebook is about connecting. If I add you I am willing to interact with you. I'm not into motivational posters or any of that, it's about interacting with friends.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to have people on facebook you don't get to see in real life? That way you can interact online even if you live far apart.

There is just a fine line between connecting with others and prostelytizing oneself....

    Perhaps many don't fall prey to this. But social media sites are prime conduits for those who do. Just like casinos pull in gamblers.

    I also meant narcissism in more general terms regarding our society. One cannot see popular media without being inundated with the reality of that.
    How bout if I said "life was meant to be exposed with other people" would you think of it the same way?

    Many people just want to get their stories out there. They need an outlet and, sometimes, validation.

    Marketing can be neat, but social networking for marketing sucks--maintaining an "online image" or "live tweeting" or managing a damned LinkedIn account?

    There's also a lot of "I" and "me" in Facebook status updates. C'mon now; share ideas, wisdom, aphorisms, good stories, interesting stuff--things that are relevant to all of us.

    This might work: https://www.facebook.com/settings?ta...fications&view

    Under "All Notifications," click the Edit button next to items that have an email icon next to them, uncheck them, and, blammo; no more emails!

    I had a FB account, but deleted it because I had a lot of pseudo-friends, people I was in middle school with, including this girl who said some terrible shit to me when I was 10 or something, and to be honest, I don't need anything that encourages me or anyone I communicate with, to be even more shallow than is natural for a middle class American, which is, unfortunately, already very shallow indeed.
    I prefer real, living people and animals, that do what real-embodied souls doooo.

    Don't have a FB account, don't plan to ever have one. The same with all social media with the exceptions of Linkedin and Twitter. Twitter is purely for reading and comic relief, never posting. Linkedin is only for professional contacts. I don't try to analyze why people use them, if it's sad because people don't communicate in person, if it's an addiction or a mental issue. If these people weren't using FB they would use something else and probably will in the future. The people who make their life an open book will do it regardless of the method.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Academics all use FB professionally now, for updates about conferences, new research, guest speakers, etc., and I wonder if that's going to spread to other professions. The 60-something profs are on there and everything. I'm not sure if it's because our workspaces are much more separate than other workspaces, and so we have to figure out how to keep a departmental/disciplinary community together, or if we're just nerds who are catching the electronic wave early on-ish and soon everyone will be using it professionally.

    Isn't that why the internet was invented and has been used in this manner since the 70's?
