    I don't post much, mainly read about others' lives..... The couple times I have engaged in conversation with folks (particularly folks I went to highschool with) it's caused self-preservation walls to erect and a subsequent awkward flakiness in continuing the discussion

    Could be either, but is a stronger motivation for someone who is both (as I can corroborate.)

    sp-dom (pretty sure) checking in here.

    I don't care for it and almost never post status updates, or 'like' things, or post quotes/videos, or whatnot... mostly because I think the entire thing is a big waste of time, highlighting trivialities [there are definitely a few exceptions], and I don't want to shift all of my interaction w/ people to the facebook medium (otoh, I have some friends who HAVE mostly shifted to it, which... meh) . I: 1)Play scrabble with a few people, 2)Post photos from my life, and 3)comment on some friends' photos or posts now and then, if they spark my interest or if I feel guilty because I'm not keeping up with their life because they only post on facebook and it's the only way I can check in every now and then.

    So it's not really tied to the privacy thing for me, more just... blech.

    As an sx/sp, other than what I've expressed in the OP, this is mostly my perspective on it. There are plenty of friends which are significant to me which I probably wouldn't be able to stay in touch with at all without it. Because of that, I tolerate the trivial/superficial. I often get annoyed at the barrier this presents to deeper connections, and I then move to other more meaning-rich modes of communication. Also, I enjoy the precision and depth of thought written communication allows, but it cannot substitute face-to-face interaction because of the paucity of nonverbal communication.

    It just pisses me off when people don't put enough information for my personal taste on their profiles. I want to know EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU. SHARE MORE.

    I lol'd at the Social description in the OP because it's so damn true of me.

    Facebook is awesome! I like that I can keep up with my friends/maintain my real-life social network in a way that requires less of an energy drain than real life contact would. I like that I can make easier contact with friends that I might not see as often, stay up-to-date on their gossip/news, and keep them up-to-date on mine. My only annoyance with Facebook is that I haven't figured out how to post things only to "close friends"/etc, meaning 1) I have to tone down all posts/status updates/etc keeping in mind that I'm Facebook friends with both of my parents, and 2) I can't post anything that's highly personal when I'm friends with so many vague acquaintances.

    Edit: So many Facebook lurkers on this thread. Creeps me out.
