    Should I give Facebook another shot?

    I haven't had a facebook account in a long time. I deleted my account. The problem wasn't drama, it was . . . boredom. It was boring. Nothing happened. No one ever said anything. Nothing.

    When I was on facebook, I selected my friends carefully and I NEVER had a problem with drama. Now I'm considering creating another facebook account and giving facebook another chance. I could use it to keep up with people, chat with people in real time, and post my accomplishments. I can also help and support people, which is something I like to do.

    The problem is the new stupid time line thing. I don't want that crap on my page. There's some other features I don't want on my page.

    So what do you guys think? Do you think facebook is worth anything?

    i barely use my facebook

    everybody knows to email me

    however, it really is down to you
    the world is becoming more 'connected' and facebook pretty much championed that movement. more and more things are being tied to facebook accounts. PSU has a facebook page, and the PS4 will have facebook integration.

    put it this way, whats the worst that could happen if you gave it another chance?

    That's a good point. Nothing could happen. I could always delete it again.

    Thank you for the input.

    It's worth it in being able to contact people. Other than that I don't use it for anything. My last 'status update' was in February so what does that tell ya? If you're important to me you have my phone number and can contact me directly.

    I would give it another shot. Facebook is amazing for finding people you went to high school with. The one thing that never got me bored was looking up old high school classmates or people in my year, or the years I was there. It's fun because so many people change, and some don't change, yet some change very drastically and some look like $#@!, my bullies mostly.

    It's fun because you can talk to yourself like I do when I browse.

    "Oh I remember you, you $#@!, I always wanted to have sexual intercourse with you. "

    "Look at this piece of $#@!, you bullied me throughout grade 9 and 10 and you're still the same person. Some things don't change. I'd like fries with that, loser."

    Or my favourite,

    "Holy $#@!! When did you become a neo-nazi skinhead?!" True story, this was the quietest girl I knew, she wasn't even emo, she kept to herself and she did have friends, but now she's a neo-nazi, I can't believe it!

    I am still in search of my first crush from grade 1.

    Facebook is great.

    Yes, you should give Facespace another shot. That way we can see you for who you truly are!..? A Darkie!

    I can't give you advice either way. I have a Facespace account, but I don't talk on it or anything like that. I got people added who found me or are my family, but it's just not something I use. I can't be getting caught up. XD

    I gave you a thumbs down because I don't have your phone number. That means that I'm not important despite being besties for years!.

    I currently have a, Facebook. It can be boring but it's nice to see how my friends are doing.

    I had a Facebook account once for about 2 months. Deleted it and couldn't be any happier. Just have to deal with friends checking their Facebook every 5 minutes when we're out or just hanging out. GET OFF YOUR $#@!ING PHONE DUDE!!!!! Lol

    Creating an account is free. Give it a try, if it doesn't work stop using it.

    I find it's best for if you want to talk to people who, for some reason, can't be contacted by text message or phone call. Or if you want to address a group of people if you're planning something.
    Other than that, I post random $#@! on there that often references funny crap I used to like from back in the day just to see if anyone else acknowledges it and knows what I'm talking about. Other than that, it's just full of people wanting to broadcast everything, in my opinion.

    I'm a bit cynical, so don't take my input as a final say by any means.

    I hate it even more now with the new crap on it. I deleted the account after one day and am happy about it.

    Well at least you gave it a go. Now you know

    Probably for the best anyway; I remember reading an article before that people with social media accounts are more prone to depression. I can agree with this to an extent on a non-scientific basis. For example, if there's someone you like and they have no interest in you, "stalking" them on Facebook is only going to make things worse and you'll feel $#@! about it. I've kinda been there so that's why I thought of that example so easily

    Anyway, power to you!
