Top 10 Reason Everyone Should Destroy Their Facebook Account

10 reasons to destroy facebook account

Here are top 10 reason why everyone should destroy/delete their Account on Facebook.

Facebook’s Terms Of Service are completely one-sided.
Facebook’s Terms Of Service state that not only do they own your data (section 2.1), but if you don’t keep it up to date and accurate (section 4.6), they can terminate your account (section 14).


Facebook’s CEO has a documented history of unethical behavior.
From the very beginning of Facebook’s existence, there are questions about Zuckerberg’s ethics. According to BusinessInsider.com, he used Facebook user data to guess email passwords and read personal email in order to discredit his rivals. However, These allegations are unproven and somewhat dated. They’re particularly compelling given that Facebook chose to fork over $65M to settle a related lawsuit alleging that Zuckerberg had actually stolen the idea for Facebook.

Facebook has flat out declared war on privacy.
Founder and CEO of Facebook, in defense of Facebook’s privacy changes last January: “People have really gotten comfortable not only sharing more information and different kinds, but more openly and with more people. That social norm is just something that has evolved over time.” More recently, in introducing the Open Graph API: “… the default is now social.” Essentially, this means Facebook not only wants to know everything about you, and own that data, but to make it available to everybody.

Facebook is pulling a classic bait-and-switch.
At the same time that they’re telling developers how to access your data with new APIs, they are relatively quiet about explaining the implications of that to members. Bait-and-switch means that Facebook gets you to share information that you might not otherwise share, and then they make it publicly available. Since they are in the business of monetizing information about you for advertising purposes, this amounts to tricking their users into giving advertisers information about themselves.

Facebook is a bully.
When Pete Warden demonstrated just how this bait-and-switch works (by crawling all the data that Facebook’s privacy settings changes had inadvertently made public) they sued him. So why sue an independent software developer and fledgling entrepreneur for making data publicly available when you’re actually already planning to do that yourself? Their real agenda is pretty clear: they don’t want their membership to know how much data is really available.

Even your private data is shared with applications.
At this point, all your data is shared with applications that you install. Which means now you’re not only trusting Facebook, but the application developers, too, many of whom are too small to worry much about keeping your data secure.

Facebook is not technically competent enough to be trusted.
Even if we weren’t talking about ethical issues here, I can’t trust Facebook’s technical competence to make sure my data isn’t hijacked. For example, their recent introduction of their “Like” button makes it rather easy for spammers to gain access to my feed and spam my social network.

Facebook makes it incredibly difficult to truly delete your account.
It’s pretty tricky to really delete your account. They make no promises about deleting your data and every application you’ve used may keep it as well. On top of that, account deletion is incredibly (and intentionally) confusing. When you go to your account settings, you’re given an option to deactivate your account, which turns out not to be the same thing as deleting it. Deactivating means you can still be tagged in photos and be spammed by Facebook. Finally, the moment you log back in, you’re back like nothing ever happened! In fact, it’s really not much different from not logging in for awhile. To actually delete your account, you have to find a link buried in the on-line help. Basically, Facebook is trying to trick their users into allowing them to keep their data even after they’ve “deleted” their account.

Facebook doesn’t support the Open Web.
The so-called Open Graph API is named so as to disguise its fundamentally closed nature. It’s bad enough that the idea here is that we all pitch in and make it easier than ever to help Facebook collect more data about you. It’s bad enough that most consumers will have no idea that this data is basically public. It’s bad enough that they claim to own this data and are aiming to be the one source for accessing it. But then they are disingenuous enough to call it “open,” when, in fact, it is completely proprietary to Facebook. You can’t use this feature unless you’re on Facebook.

The Facebook itself sucks.
Between the farms and the mafia wars and the “top news” and the myriad privacy settings and the annoying ads and the thousands upon thousands of crappy applications, Facebook is almost completely useless. Yes, I could probably customize it better, but the navigation is ridiculous, so I don’t bother. And, yet, somehow, I can’t even change colors or apply themes or do anything to make my page look personalized. Let’s not even get into how slowly your feed page loads. Basically, at this point, Facebook is more annoying than anything else.

mpooe5 on June 10th, 2010 4:50 am:

I have been trying to delete my account because I realized how addicting facebook could get. After reading this, I now know why I should really delete my account. :)


The Founder on June 23rd, 2010 4:29 am:

I LOATHE FACEBOOK aka FAKEBOOK! thank u for this blog and to MOCK FACEBOOK I created my website where people can even webchat! beat that fucking fakebook aka FACEBOOK: it has this High school mentality cuz the founder of the site didnt finish college


alice essah on August 1st, 2010 9:54 pm:

a friend of mine asked me to delete my pictures from the face book since internet fraudsters can use it and might end me in a big trouble. also private information is been published nationwide which breaks people records and relationship. i think this information should be known to every individual.

“As long as your data is being held by someone else, not only can you not control what they are doing with it right now but you can’t control it in years to come,”


Andrew on September 7th, 2010 6:09 pm:

I’m looking around for articles and statements that are anti-Facebook to try to understand why some people dislike it so much. Your article was extremely biased, and most of your points are very poorly backed up. Really, this article should be called, “My Issues with Privacy Protection on Facebook.”

1. Facebook’s Terms Of Service are completely one-sided.
-Privacy issue.

2. Facebook’s CEO has a documented history of unethical behavior.
-It’s not documented as you yourself stated that the first point is not substantiated, and thus shouldn’t even be stated, how would you like me to make allegations about you and then use them in an argument against your character?

3. Facebook has flat out declared war on privacy.
-Privacy issue. Also, you’re fear-mongering here. “Declaring war” can be reduced to this being their business model.

4. Facebook is pulling a classic bait-and-switch.
-Privacy issue.

5. Facebook is a bully.
-Privacy issue.

6. Even your private data is shared with applications.
-Privacy issue.

7. Facebook is not technically competent enough to be trusted.
-Privacy issue.

8. Facebook makes it incredibly difficult to truly delete your account.
-Privacy issue.

9. Facebook doesn’t support the Open Web.
-Ok, finally on to your 2nd of “10″ reasons. Oh wait, this is actually once again about privacy.

10. The Facebook itself sucks.
-This rant without any clear direction or statements is just you venting.

Why are games like Farmville and Mafia Wars bad? Are games in general bad or just these ones? Annoying ads? Show me a website that doesn’t use ads. There’s a giant ad for Evony at the top of this very page. Thousands of crappy applications? Don’t use them. Is a library bad just because there’s a lot of books there that you don’t want to read? You don’t take the time to understand how Facebook is organized, and you admit it, but IT’S to blame for being “completely useless” and how the “navigation is ridiculous.” I’m not even going to talk about your nonsense arguments about lack of customization.

But in response to your hating of Facebook for their privacy issues, anyone using Facebook, or any other internet-based networking site has to know what they put there is open for many people to see. Yes, Facebook is more aggressive with monetizing it than other sites, that’s a valid argument, but all you have to do is act accordingly. Don’t put up sensitive information, And then your FREE service is paid for by advertising.


Al on September 9th, 2010 2:20 am:

Andrew – clearly you are wasting time writing here that you could better spend suckling on Facebook’s teet, like you apparently do every other day of the year. Seriously, your pretentious pontifications in defense of a soul-less social networking site are embarrassing and unintentionally hilarious. Thanks for your editorial response – clearly you have been compromised by the social networking disease that causes one to have delusions of importance. No one gives a flying flipper what you think about the article, anymore than they care about what you ate for dinner. Bite me you blowhard.


Mrs L on September 13th, 2010 4:44 pm:

Shall I tell you why facebook sucks? It is poisonous. Its just a jumped up site for bullies and show offs. People who have time to sit on their computer for hours posting negative comments about others and causing trouble should be banned!! They obviously don’t have any real friends that they can communicate with face to face. How sad are they? Get out into the real world you losers and try insulting people to their face and see how far you get!!


Ozzrix on October 3rd, 2010 3:56 pm:

I completely agree with the article, apart from the corporate interest in your personal details and the questionable morals of it’s creators, the real trouble lies in what it does to our society.
In 2001 the UK government and schools launched a massive initiative to stop bullying and the high number of teenage suicides and murders it resulted in, by retraining teachers to spot the signs and take swift, harsh action against the bullys.
All that hard work and tax payers money was in-vein thanks to Facebook and its refusal to recognise or act on the problem.
They say it’s the responsibility of parents to monitor the activity of kids profiles and what they are using Facebook for, even though young kids are not supposed to have profiles on there in the first place.

Fact of the matter is when I contacted facebook (On several occasions) concerning my 8 yr old sons account
on there and my disapproval, they did nothing about it.

Facebook didn’t even reply to one of my emails.

However my son also had an “illegal” account / profile on Bebo, but at least Bebo acted on my email and his account was removed within 12 hours of it being sent.

I LOVE FACEBOOK <3 :)))))


rsty2112 on October 12th, 2010 2:04 am:

I opened a facebook account because it seemed like such a big deal at the time. I didn’t know why, but I kept getting this uneasy feeling. I think it may feel similar to get ass fucked without my consent or any type of lubrication. Maybe it’s just me????


Miya on October 16th, 2010 11:31 pm:

Facebook controls you fullstop! What was so funny was when facebook was down the comments! One women saying how her crops will die on farmville! What the helps farmville I dint even know games were included but I gues I haven’t got sucked into pretend world! Facebook is scary how people are addicted just think what could be done in the time spent wasted on fb??! The only thing you get is a fat bottom! HAha facebook is showoffs site people put wedding snaps on and holiday snaps why oh why deep down they know it’s bad cos it’s personal to them but showoffs it’s sad get lifes


angelique on November 3rd, 2010 3:50 pm:

I have already deleted my facebook. Not only is it extremely boring, but its pointless, and a waste of time. And to permanently delete your account, the process takes up to 14 days, thats ridiculous! Why does it take 14 days to delete a stupid little account on a stupid site? Anyways, i am done with it, i am done with all social sites, they are all the same thing. Boring and pointless! I have plenty more things to do with my time on the internet, and my life. I’m not going to waste it on some stupid boring site that i don’t like anyway. I’m not jumping on the bandwagon anymore with these fads, they suck! Social sites are fads that will become extinct soon! Facebook sucks! All social networking sites suck!


yonose on November 6th, 2010 9:19 am:

Facebook is just a sack of twisted made up legal stuff, just look at the Privacy Policy

facebook.com / policy.php

the latest three articles 7), 8), and 9), are the most relevant for me, cause these contradict with the rest of the whole policy, and the whole fucking policy just contradicts with their
Statement of Rights and Responsibilities,

facebook.com / terms.php

which at the same time contradicts with those Facebook’s principles

facebook.com / principles.php

i’m just like… HOLY SHIT …


gamer on November 18th, 2010 5:29 pm:

I’m one of many active facebook user from hungary.
First time I thaught it’s so cool to sare your feeligs and every stuff what you want (favourite video, photo,…)and seemed to be very awesome website with flashes and applications, but nowadays I’ve realised Facebook has become one of the most dangerous thing to the youngsters.
I mean it has grown up from the nothing to a huge uncontrolled monster, which has a big influence to the young adults who’re going to be our next generation on this earth.
Let me think about it; what could causes, if millions of people’s oppinion would in one hand, and people (mainly the youngsters) would act like this? Terrifying…
It’s kind a hard stuff , that right now millions of people are trying to be better than the others on this website with eg. uploading stranger and stranger photograph about themselves, or posting everything about themselves; even the recent use of their restroom! (mainly 14 year of age girls and boys).Trendy???
I’m just trying to describe how exposed the economy to this kinda sh*t, and this “tool” how easy can form the people ways of thinking…
I don’t know does anybody can stop this!
Please tell me your oppinion if you’ve read this.
Sorry for my englis. :D

Well, if only I could delete my Facebook account… I tried to register with Facebook and although the email verification process failed and they rejected my account, my profile stayed there with my picture and I have no access to it! When I try to log in they say there is no account associated with my email address yet I regularly receive friend invitations, and to make it worse, with each friend invitation it says something like “didn’t sign up for Facebook? click here to report” but when I access the link it says “link invalid” or something like that… I cannot even complain about their customer service as they don’t seem to have any, I wrote to them several times to ask to have my profile deleted and all I got was an automated reply… They basically stole my picture/data and as far as I can see there is nothing I can do without a lawyer. I was hoping to sign with Facebook and have a good time but I came to realise Facebook is evil and greedy before I even had a chance to use their service.


pancake crusher on December 10th, 2010 12:09 am:

Desperate and pathetic cretins get used and abused voluntarily and offer valuable and sensitive information/media while simultaneously sacrificing their life in a delusional fiction called Facebook. Get your chins up girls, wouldn’t want to post a double-chin picture of yourself on Facebook now would you?? Oh, and PLEASE LOOK like you’re having the time of your life in EVERY photo, don’t forget to make your retarded sucked-in-cheeks-pucker-shiny-painted-face. It is an exhibition of human failure and addiction to useless trivia. Go ahead, entertain yourselves to death and get fat/useless in front of that glowing white screen. I say let them all have it. Those of us who abstain will enjoy the unfettered world of non-Facebook, aka real life. I can’t imagine one reason to subscribe that would outweigh the mountains of reasons to abstain. Then again, reason is likely a subject far less worthy of study than the unrestricted flow of diarrhea that is a Facebook page. Social network is a euphemism, it should be called: social cancer. The fools are ignorant of their ignorance.


tropicalmonsoon on December 21st, 2010 7:32 am:

My Facebook account, which I don’t use often, has ALL fake info lol. I’m surprised they haven’t banned me yet for not making my data accurate enough for them to cash in on.


Facebook sucks! on January 2nd, 2011 8:30 am:

It is the most boring design ever.
The type is too small.
The pages just go on and on.
You can’t meet new people.
It’s way too dependent on “status updates” for information; can you even blog on it?

Basically, it’s just a really bad merger of MySpace and Twitter, dressed up like a very boring company newsletter.

How Zuckerberg made a billion bucks off of this, I haven’t a clue. Well, okay, the fact that they DEMAND accurate personal data and then whore it out to advertisers might be a clue.

Myspace is a zillion times more creative. Twitter is a zillion times more pithy. And neither is a privacy-sucking cesspool for mass-marketing to be shoved at you.

Be smart, and don’t sign up for Facebook. Or do it with a fake account first, as I did, and discover what a bad joke it is.


23943jre9j on January 13th, 2011 1:08 am:

I deleted my Facebook account (will still take up to 14 days) on the 11th of January 2011. Lots of my “friends” on it are a bunch of fakes and drama whores.

Facebook is the reason why I lost motivation to do anything productive in my life. However, now that I have rid this bullshit of a disease from my life, I can find more time for BETTER things to do.

Fuck you, Facebook.


Laser Dude on January 22nd, 2011 2:26 am:

My friends fucking ditched me because I didn’t have facebook and they did!
Now I’m the only one in the 9th grade+Teacher that doesn’t have Facebook and I’m proud of it.

Fucking Facebook Should go to Fucking Hell & die.


Love on February 12th, 2011 11:01 am:

um…….. This article is good … also everyone has their opinion about facebook….. u wanna join facebok community.. fine! u don’t wanna join.. it okay…… wotever u’re sharing on facebook should nt be ur private stuf.. its a social network and not meant for a place where u get addicted and cause trouble…. to the author of this article… this makes sense!!


keyana on February 20th, 2011 8:45 pm:

i agree with what was posted and a lot of these comments being posted hit home and are pretty much true.i thought that only myself and just a few out there shared these views about facebook but after coming to this site and seeing this,it is good to know that many others realize the truth.i erased my profile 2 yrs ago and im so glad i erased it before things got worse on the site as it is today.i lost interest in the site not only because of privacy issues but for these very real reasons:people add to just add and not really be your “friend”(strange),people are attention whores and will post anything obnoxious just so others can read and people hype up their characters and talk about who they aren’t just to seem interesting.done with myspace,facebook and whatever else because these sites arent genuine and the folks on them aren’t either.i’d rather make my time VALUEABLE


moonpie86 on February 21st, 2011 4:08 am:

good on u laser dude! Us adults can comment all we want, but highschool is about pack mentality, your a very courageous person for stepping so boldly outside of the pack. Good luck on your adventure


Matthew Grayson on February 23rd, 2011 12:15 pm:

I have joined and deleted two accounts and unfortunately joined again to stay in touch with a friend in the U.S. This time, however, I put fake info as I’m well aware of the privacy issues. I find it is addicting, even to one who loathes it. I’ve allowed a few friends to join and was tempted for more but I refuse. I hold on to what I posted before I left the second time. “If you are my real friend, you will call, text, or email me. My info is on this page.”

I had a few justify facebook as the easier way and stuck it out longer then wizened up and said it was being deleted. It wasn’t long before I realized who my real friends were.

I do hope it dies but I’m not sure. Society today is praising the worst things, and facebook is a great outlet for it.

In BC, Canada, a teenage girl was killed in broad daylight in a park. Her facebook page was besieged with comments “LOL, YOUR DEAD!” (Incorrect grammar is another sad decline in our society.). There is something seriously wrong in a world where a girl’s death is a joke.

I can’t remember where but it was reported not too long ago that a woman murdered her child because he interrupted her game of Farmville. Granted, that is an extreme case and she may have had other issues, but there is a definite addiction to these games, and the fact one can spend real money on pixels to then show them off, is scary. Yes, each person is responsible for hir actions, but there should be some responsibility to one another as well.

The privacy issue is a HUGE thing yet so many people don’t seem to take it seriously. People updating their status by saying they’re going to the bathroom, married couples who are both at home say good-night to each other on facebook, children having profiles and so on is insane and yet the world seems to be blind to how truly crazy it is. Family is encouraged NOT to add each other because they’ll find one’s secrets (just use the ridiculous privacy features fans say if ya must) but no one cares that perfect strangers are generally able to read what one comments on another friend’s status … it’s just nuts.

There is a car commercial where after his date his done, he pushes a button and an automated voice tells him what he wants to hear. His date updated her fb status immediately after with “best first date ever.” not only is it sad that fb is so important to people that they can only wait seconds before they go on it is ridiculous, and that it must now be a feature in automobiles is just scary.

Facebook and Google: it’s “1984″ and people seem to like it. Facebook encourages conformity without any individual color schemes or anything really. The mass gen pop seem to like that also. SOOO SAD!

Thank you for this site! I’m happy fb hasn’t taken you. While I’m sadly on it to humor a few friends, this keeps me grounded and reminds me why I actually loathe it!


Dude111 on March 21st, 2011 5:03 am:

Faceook is horrible,i dont know why so many peopel are addicted like PUPPETS to this CIA data miming site!!


Joshua on March 21st, 2011 5:08 am:

“Facebook’s CEO has a documented history of unethical behavior.”

Thats because he is a JEWISH PRICK Andrew!!

Jews dont care about anyone,think they are above everyuone else and generally have shitty attitudes!!


Amanda on March 24th, 2011 4:47 pm:

It took me 2 hours to delete all my photos, info and friends and I’m not even sure how exactly to delete it once and for all. I read previous comments about how the link to delete is buried in online help.. where do I find this link? I honestly feel mental withdrawl. I feel like I want to make a new one just to see what people are doing. But, I realize this isn’t normal. These “friends” aren’t my friends. I’ll just get sucked in all day long, refreshing my page just to see a new status. Ugh, facebook withdrawl. On the road to real life recovery =]


OnlyLivingBoyInUK on April 11th, 2011 3:18 pm:

Why would you be able to change the colour of the screen on Facebook? You can’t do that on any other type of I.D. card.


fuckwit on April 14th, 2011 12:15 pm:

Here’s my story:

After being egged on relentlessly about how I “need” to join by others I decided to see what all the hubbub was all about. Due to the fact that I’m not a retard, I decided to test the waters with a fake account.

I SPECIFICALLY skipped all of the “re-establish contact with pricks from your past” bullshit. My first order of business was to test the privacy settings, as I’ve heard many horror stories about it. But what’s this? The first thing that pops up, out of the fucking blue, is a list of people and family I know IRL under the heading “people you may know”.

Needless to say, it begs just the minor question of JUST HOW THE FUCK DOES IT KNOW MY REAL LIFE CONTACTS WHEN I JUST SIGNED UP WITH A FAKE ACCOUNT?!


Joe Blow on April 16th, 2011 10:04 pm:

Reason #1….One of facebooks first financial investors….the C.I.A.


Fender137 on May 1st, 2011 12:35 am:

I’m going to put this bluntly – I find nearly everyone on Facebook to be full of shit. Who cares what you are doing? (besides stalkers/paedophiles). No one wants to know what clothes you are wearing or what chum you are having crumpets with or how much fun you are having at a nightclub. Get a fucking life.

It’s hilarious how people feel the need to tell the world about what they are doing every second of the day as if the world revolves around them. Isn’t it strange that we as human beings sort of instinctly have a desire to receive attention? Am I the only one who finds that strange?

In this Facebook-centric era I’ve noticed that people get their attention fixes out of posting comments or status updates, which are then “liked” by their so-called friends. They really (sadly) long for those “likes.” I find everything about Facebook irritating and pretentious. It is simply a medium for those with nothing better to do with their time to virtually interact with eachother.

Anyway, rant over. I’m off to live my life. Care to join?


Tony on May 3rd, 2011 3:58 pm:

Epic anti-facebook rant in 3, 2, 1!

I remember when I first made my facebook account. It was more of my friends that wanted me to make one than anyone else. My parents on the other hand, despised it. Even I didn’t like it at first, but eventually I made one anyways.

I really never used it to post the stuff I was doing and really hated those stupid games people kept playing.

Eventually I would find my self going through other peoples pictures and it just felt wrong. It felt even more stupid when I stumbled on pictures of parties I wasn’t invented to (come on, we have all been there once).

I had it for about four to five years, and I really never used it that much. It was only recently that I found an article on the web that, like this one, gave 10 reasons why facebook sucked, and actually had a link to the page where you could delete your account.

And so, I happily deleted it (you know, after waiting the 14 freaken days). Me and a couple of friends now don’t have facebook and are ok with that.

The only lingering doubt I have about it is some people are so dependent on facebook that they will only use it to announce events rather then email and text message and what not, thus I won’t be able to find out certain events (but for the most part, I don’t care).

Looking back at it all, the only reason facebook was successful is that it allows people to be heard. People like having their statisis’s “liked”. They liked when they woke up on their birthday and found fifty, if not more, people wishing them happy birthday on their page (I know I missed it :( ). It allowed people to be “seen” as well as communicate with others without having to get out of the house.

Well, thanks for reading.
Peace
>Tony

you’re all a bucnh of dumbasses you all should just die facebook is the best social networking site to date

Johnboy on June 27th, 2011 9:12 am:

Undoubtedly Facebook is an unrestrained exercise of narcissism, but more importantly, it restricts you to the rants of your presumably unintelligent friends.Twitter, on the other hand, let’s you know what the influential and important have to say.


arnbis on June 29th, 2011 7:20 am:

Facebook unauthorizely leaks yours email address to buisness companies.So you get and get more spam email in your email account daily.
Facebook sucks.


pao on July 8th, 2011 8:18 am:

Idiots all ya cuz I mean if u don’t like facebook don’t use it but don’t bash it either u dumbfucks!


Felaxa on August 6th, 2011 4:41 pm:

When you open a Facebook account you’re are giving away you private data to a bunch of strangers that will profit of it…i’ve just close my account, Facebook sucks, i recommend carefully read software agreements before clicking the “I accept” button or you would find yourself completely screwed!


NamNam on August 23rd, 2011 8:58 am:

Tell me, what have you accomplished with adding dozens of friends everyday? Do you even know any of these people? Or are you just doing it for the sake of whoring yourself out to people?

If you accept my friend request and I message you, not once, not twice, but THRICE within just about a week and you don’t respond AT ALL (while taking the time to “like” silly status updates and spamming random bullshit on your wall all day long) then this pretty much proves my point.

Social networking is the worst form of, well, socializing. I live my life outside of the computer, having fun with friends. Not sitting alone in my room, hoping that really cute girl I’m stalking “liked” the poem I wrote her.


That other dude on August 25th, 2011 1:27 pm:

Well… Facebook is not as “good” as it wants to look. Once I was against FB but one of my friends told me to create an account, so I tried it… There were the days when I spent hours on it but soon I understood that there were often no people (or just a few) to write to and I’m just wasting my time. I also remember days when I posted something and waited for the first “Like”…but soon I started to feel that something isn’t OK. I still have an account but I try to spend less time on it – when I feel the “need of FB” I rather watch some movie, read a book, go out or do something else.

Who cares if you have over 150 “friends” if you can’t remember when did you go to the coffeeshop(for example) and talk with someone face-to-face? Or do you think it is normal to accept a friend request to some completely stranger just because he’s a friend of your friend of your friend…?

I don’t understand people who even write their address or phone number on their wall. Don’t forget to write your bank account number, shoe number or date of your last menstruation because it’s so IN…

Be careful when you create an FB account…or better don’t create any.

Still got something to say…. Twitter and MySpace <– good :) facebook<— I hate you! In school, you cannot be the coolest and famous if you don't have a facebook. I know that, coz I'm not that person. I'm like the only who doesn't hav fb. I would like to live in the 90' coz UK would still have jungle and USA the hip-hop, and u wouldn't have 2 worry about the sucky fb.

I’m an attorney. I use facebook on a regular basis to gather information about opposing parties, locate defendants, or build a case against a defendant. (once caugth a defendant admitting that he fabricated an injury on facebook, not thinking I would find out). Anyone who uses facebook or social media is looney. You are exposing yourself to the entire world. Have at it, enjoy the axe murders and shady lawyers or PIs who make use of your stupidity.

Sorry maybe I’m being a bit dumb here but what could anyone possibly do with my info on Facebook?
Not trying to discredit this but I’d really like to know what the dangers are.


Super Saiyan Vegeta on March 26th, 2012 11:59 pm:

I dislike Facebook, and I have my reasons for doing so.

I have used Facebook for 2 1/2 years, and have experienced a lot of self-promoting, narcissistic behavior on there. A lot of the people on it (whether you like it or not) like to use it as a platform for glamorizing their social lives (or lack thereof), whilst possessing a collection of thousands of faces they have never once exchanged messages with (and never will). For people who aren’t very “social,” looking at photos of other people showing them having a “good” time only wrecks one’s own self-esteem, and makes them feel utterly worthless in comparison. It’s those kinds of photos of people who look all “happy” and are shown meeting lots of people at an event, having crazy drinking parties, etc.

Many of the people I had added on Facebook in the past would usually ignore me, no matter how many times I would greet them. And instead they would turn around and keep spamming up their walls with stupid apps or TMI-quality posts that honestly no one cared about (unless you’re a stalker). (I know there are some people who would respond to you almost all of the time, but sadly they are in the minority, and with millions of people on Facebook it’s difficult to find the right person who actually gives a shit about you as a person first and foremost.)

On Facebook, the value of friendship seems to have been lost as it tends to lean more towards compiling a huge mass of random strangers rather than putting yourself out there to get to know each and every person you add a little better. This was my main gripe with MySpace, and since its demise Facebook is carrying the torch of social solitude onwards. To add more insult to the injury, people are getting out much less and they are spending more time trying to attract online attention (be it uploading a truckload of personal photos, embedding a thousand YouTube videos a day, or what have you).

Perhaps Facebook wouldn’t be such a bad site at all if more of its users posted things that were the least bit interesting, as opposed to downright stupid wall posts like “i think pee smells like cheerios.” And as for those who are saying it’s more the problem of the people on there as opposed to the site itself, I rather like to think of Facebook as another online forum: if the community sucks for the most part, I am less likely to stay on there, no matter what “nifty” features are there.

Good riddance of that shit. I don’t care if you still use Facebook, but regardless of what you try to convince me otherwise with I refuse to return to Facebook, out of disgust for that site. I don’t have time to worry about that crap because I have a life of my own to worry about, and that to me is the real deal of socializing.

Facebook should suck shit and die. I hope it goes the way of the dodo.


Reuben Myarse on May 21st, 2012 10:54 pm:

Facebook connects people…yeah, with targeted advertising. Screw that! Might as well just watch TV.

I have never had a real facebook account, and never will, but I made a totally fake one which is empty, just to see what this is all about. I browsed some games and got bored. Now I like it even less if that is possible. At least my info is all fake and didn’t help their statistics, haha. I fail to see where the fun in facebook is.

Skye on December 28th, 2012 8:38 pm:

Facebook is bogus, because I was deleted for absolutely no reason at all. I wasn’t even home when I ‘harassed’ someone.
I’ve even sent a message asking why I was deleted; I explained my situation and my not being home at the time, and they pretty much told me to go away.
They didn’t follow protocol. If I were ‘harassing’ someone, they would issue a warning first, then a 24-hour ban, then a 7 day ban, then a 30-day ban, then they’ll outright ban you for good if you keep fucking up.
They did none of that. They disabled my account for no reason at all.
Fuck ‘em.

The Truth About Fat Burning Foods Review on July 14th, 2013 9:53 pm:

I am curious to find out what blog platform you are working with?
I’m having some minor security problems with my latest website and I’d like to
find something more secure. Do you have any recommendations?


Darla on September 20th, 2013 12:08 pm:

Heya outstanding website! Does running a blog such as this take a massive amount work?
I’ve absolutely no expertise in programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon.
Anyway, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.

I know this is off subject but I simply wanted
to ask. Many thanks!

All social networking sites, major search engines and web browsers invade your personal data for marketing purposes. How do you think they make billions of dollars through a free service? Do yourself a favor and delete all your social networking accounts permanently, use a secure search engine (some use google search results but do it anonymously,) download a secure web browser like Comodo Dragon (just like chrome except it is private,) and install privacy addons like ghostery to prevent websites from tracking you.

All of this is free and easy, so go for it. Unless you enjoy being a corporate pawn.
