    Oh but to answer the question

    I don't like it.

    Intimacy should be shared irl with true close friends over wine or something... Not just putting it out there for the masses

    I mean... For me

    I don't relate to the compulsion to do so in such a public way.

    I mean I have some major shit going on and I occasionally feel like having a tantrum about it but I would be so embarresed if it was publicly with people I wasn't quite intimate with.

    Yeah, I share the sentiment. And even with close friends, I seldom disclose my thoughts recklessly.

    That's a pretty interesting perspective. I use FB mostly to post pictures like the old picture albums but you can share it with more people. Sometimes if there is a video that is really funny, I'll share that too.

    Anyways, I have no problem with it. My only particular issue is the way people will go about it. If you're going to do that sort of thing, then BE ENTERTAINING! Don't be so boring and predictable. If you gonna go to da mall, wax me some poetry, keep the language and style interesting, at least try to catch my attention...I mean that's what you're going for in the first place.
    Predictable can be funny but yes, I agree with "BE ENTERTAINING". There is nothing worse than hearing - "we're driving back from so and so" or "I just got out of my hot tub" or "I'm going to that same restaurant I've been to 100 times and am just letting you know."

    I see that more on here.


    I don't mind if people post the odd vent, but it gets old fast and isn't something I do. I like facebook though, it provides an easy access to people back home in NZ. It is getting popular with people in Japan now, people mostly post pics of what they eat, things they went to,what they got up to. I like that sort of thing.

    Omg I know!

    And my sister posts seemingly everything she likes on pinterest to Facebook too.

    You know there's an option not to do that. :/

    Plus... I get notifications on my phone everytime she does it so sometimes it's like 14 things in a row and then I have those lil red numbers that I loathe and have to click on them to get it to go away!

    Notifications can be annoying. A friend started a music thread and joined me in...I woke up to 76 emails.

    Attention-whoring? Ego-feeding? The need of feeling important (the 15 minutes of fame)? What kind of psychological need causes this?
    I dont think its any of those things.

    Just one thing though, excluding all these points, including the most vaguely defined final point, what purpose does Face Book have? What would you use it for?

    Oh shit that's the worst! I hate email notifications! I get a ridiculous amount of email as it is. I can't deal with all that.

    I need some sort of reset button. I'm feeling cluttered. Too many sites and usernames and passwords to remember and emails, spam sent bs that needs to be deleted but I can only do it 50 at a time I gots no time for that and all the unnecessary bs on my computer... I need it gone and organized. I'm truly feeling overwhelmed.

    Ha sorry for that^^ not sure why I'm sharing all of that boringness.
