Your Opinion on Facebook

I was wondering what you guys think of Facebook. Do you think it's user friendly? Responsive? What do you most like about it? Most hate about it? Do privacy issues concern you? Has it made your interaction with friends, family and acquaintances over the Internet better or worse?

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

I use it. I just think it's there you know. Don't LOVE it like some people but don't hate it either. Now Twitter I can't stand that shit. No one is that interesting that people need to follow everything they do.

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

OMG Quake you are preaching to the choir my man. I'm not on Twitter but the mere idea of it is pretty whack. I mean if I want my friends to know what I'm doing then I'll call them or text them. Basically I think Twitter is for the crap that you wouldn't call your friend about because they would cuss you out for wasting their time. Do I give two shits that you just made some toast ? NO !

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

Well I like Facebook much better than MySpace. But part of that was because I liked the simplicity of FB. I like the nice clean look of FaceBook versus MySpace. It's like the Warpath vs. ES in terms of look.

I like FB to keep in touch with friends but I don't get into all the groups and games, etc. It's interesting to me how many of my friends don't really email anymore they just send me messages on FB

Funny you say that, when FB first started it was college kids only.

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

I'm on FB, dumped MySpace a while ago. It's good to keep in touch with friends and family, or to catch up with old high school/college buddies, but like SS I don't get into groups or games.

LOL

Yeah and when your parents and grandparents are on there, it's safe to say it's not just a kid thing.

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

I have a FB account. I think it's just fine especially for group forms of communication amonst relatives and close friends. If I had to choose between Facebook or standard email, I would use Facebook. I have developed an intolerance towards people that feel it necessary to let everyone know everything that they did that day. They can be easily blocked. Usually these are the ones with linked Twitter/Facebook accounts.

I really don't quite understand the crowd that says they "don't get Facebook". Its like saying you don't get message boards. You login, you share a thought, you read other people's thoughts. There's no mysterious tingling sensation that you should feel by using Facebook.

Yeah I always find it odd that someone sticks their nose up at FB, but sees nothing wrong with posting on a message board. There's not a big difference between the two really. If anything this place is a little more odd since we really don't know each other. At least on FB I personally know 95% of my "friends".

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

Facebook is great. If you want to be a serious nerd and tell everyone what you're doing every minute of the day, you can. And for all your friends who don't want to hear about it, they can hide you from their feed.

If you want to play these social games you can, and if you'd rather not know they exist, you can block them and all the status updates that come with it. Join all the groups you want, or just use it to keep up with friends.

I think there's a reason the site has grown to have so many users, you can get whatever experience you want from it. Though I do find the privacy issues very aggravating.

I'd recommend giving twitter another shot. It's an amazing tool on gamedays. Writers and insiders can get information out quicker when they don't have to write a full story. For example if you want to find out if Haynesworth is playing all you have to do is search for Haynesworth and find a credible source like Rich Campbell. Injury updates during games also get posted faster to twitter. I use to be annoyed by it to, but after using it found out that it's a great tool for sport fans.
