Am I the only one who hates Facebook?
I joined a couple months ago just to see what all the fuss was about.
The very first person to try to befriend me was my 10th grade boyfriend. It was like the day after I joined, too, which I guess means he was searching my name. Creepy.
I'm not the type of person who has an extensive social network. I have a few close friends (and almost none of those friends have Facebook accounts). So basically my Facebook "friends" were people from the past that I don't speak to anymore -- old professors, former students, acquaintances, the girl who sat next to me in 12th grade English because our last name starts with same letter, etc. Do I really want all those people to know everything about me and see pictures of me? Well, no, not really. Do I really want to know initimate details about their lives, what their favorite movies or TV shows are, what their favorite color is, etc.? No, not really. To try and stay up-to-date with the lives of assorted people from my past seems pointless and, well, a waste of time. (I left you in the past for a reason, dammit!)
So I permanently deleted my account after a few weeks.
I know I'm destined to be a crabby old hermit-woman, but I just don't get the whole online social networking thing.
Is it just me?
