I guess I've never understood how people spend a lot of time on maintaining it. I don't... it's pretty focused. I do however get a lot of utility from it given the geographically dispersed circle of friends I have.

This is the perfect description of the Pointbuzz forums right now. :)

Limiting your time on FB is a great way to keep the noise down. There's a happy medium between staying connected and being addicted. Everything in moderation, as they say.

Right, but the solution that I found was not having a Facebook altogether which works for me.

So, for fun I showed this video to my Abnormal Psych students as class begun. Mind you, we're 31 days away from the annual Face your Fear project, and 12 of the 30 students have a full-blown terror-filled phobia of all things roller-coastery.

Out of those 12, 6 of them thought this video was real (I only showed the first 5 minutes or so).

I believe the children are our future...teach them well and let them lead the way...

It seems to work for me, too. But I've often wondered what kind of person I'd be if I was an avid Facebooker, taking into account my fairly addictive personality.

Maybe I would be like my sister in law, clogging up the internet with posts designed strictly to remind the rest of us what an awesome human being she is. (she isn't). Along with that would come quizzes and tests designed to let you know what kind of person you really are.

Or maybe I would be more like my friend Nancy who somehow finds the time to update the rest of the world every forty five minutes or so with where she's going, what she's wearing, and what she's eating. I would also enjoy Throwback Thursday and post every embarrassing non-relevant picture I could find even when it includes co-workers we never really liked or exes we'd rather forget about.

Or then there's Denise who, as a legally married lesbian, found it necessary to publicly rant when she was excluded from the obituary when her wife lost her father. After garnering sympathy thru pages and pages of comments, she declared she would be taking an extended leave of absence from Facebook. It lasted all of three and a half days. I could be like her.

Ya know, I'm not sure how I'd ever find the time for all that. Instead, I prefer to concentrate my attention-whoring and friend-finding efforts right here where I belong, and that's about all I can manage to do. Plus, this forum provides me the opportunity to state awful truths about people I love without even the remotest chance of getting caught. Like just now!

I wish I had a way to "like" that...

"May your life someday be as awesome as you pretend it is on FaceBook..."

I don't remember where I read that, probably from a fortune cookie or something like that.


But then again, what do I know?

People who declare they're leaving Facebook for some amount of time I really don't get. "Look at me! I'm leaving so you can't look at me! You're gonna miss me when I'm gone!"

It's the same as people declaring that they're leaving here.

Attention grabbing, that's all. And another reason I don't miss the vanity.

When I left FB, which was for good, I simply deleted my account (which they don't make easy).

It took me months to realize Clint was gone from Facebook.

Also true. I prefer communication with real friends via text and/or FaceTime or real hang out time, anyway
