I use a personal Facebook account, but not to see some virtual friends activity. I followed&liked a lot of (companies) pages I am interested in, so when I have time it’s easy to open it up and see everything I am interested in, in one single feed, in the same place. News and promotions and everything.

And of course a real life never compares with virtual one :)

I have FB but I only use it for contacting with others because nowadays people don’t even use email to communicate. I don’t post anything and don’t check up on anyone because I feel it’s waste of time.

What a coincidence, I deactivated by Facebook account day before yesterday. I was at a breaking point, it was too much, and almost everyone who’s using facebook is so pretentious about their lives. Some people even have to post about their basic routine, eating, sleeping, going to toilet, etc. It’s ridiculous. I think I’m starting to focus my time and effort on important things than updating a status or liking random pictures.

Found few productive usages with FB such as discussions on focused / private groups, checking old friends, known people etc. There is no need for involving deeply with such platforms except professional reasons. :P

I LIKE Facebook.

You can control what will be displayed in your feed so if you have annoying “friend” there is always unfollow button. I don’t see what is the point of leaving Facebook if you can control it. If it controls you then I understand. You don’t have to add 1000 photos from Holiday to be the same as your “friends” or get 500 likes to be fancy, you don’t have to compare with anyone. That is the same as in real life.

Yep, Facebook is more of a boasting network than a social network.

Yes, that’s why I don’t like this social side of Facebook. The things we see on News Feed everyday are 99% people boasting about their material life…

However on the other side, Facebook is good for some group photo sharing (my friends no longer use any other way to share photos rather than FB), group discussions (instead of registering/ joining thousands forums in different themes/ topics), getting updates/ helps about sales/ deals, selling/ buying, travelling, learning etc.,.

Too many people are tired of a boasting virtual society online, but if we can ignore those and head for another purpose then it’s still an useful tool, anyway.
