    Facebook is gone to shit.

    I don't usually use it now - with all the crappy applications and gimmick shit going on.

    Sheesh, it's gonna turn out to be like damn MySpace...

    It's way to addictive for most people to be able to handle it. Also, with all the stupid plug-ins/add-ons, it's becoming more and more like MySpace, which isn't a good thing. Oh yeah, then there is the whole Google thing...

    facebook was awesome until anyone with a pulse could join and now it's just a noncrashing version of myspace.
    but i still use it with high privacy settings.

    I hardly ever use mine. Mainly just to get in touch with friends from high school.

    It's been going downhill like crazy though now that it's not just college students and they are adding all these weird apps.

    I'm on it as my missus put me on it! And now I keep getting friend requests from people who know her and I've apparently met but I have no idea who they are. Also getting requests from ex's...yes that one as well.

    Can't say I like it much but if anyones on who needs to bump up their friends than add me if you like.

    Has the mods here ever thought of getting GBAtemp on there?

    noooo, all my friends have started using myspace and facebook. It's annoying. They keep asking me to sign up but i refuse, probably cus i will end up being addicted and waste my time away on it just like they do. I all ready waste a lot of time on gbatemp, xbox forums varies other gaming sites so i don't need another time waster. Just my Opinion thats all.

    I like Facebook better than Myspace since it doesn't have *as much* shit on it, although I don't see how you could get addicted to something like that, even when you have tons of friends to talk to. It's kinda boring.

    My little brother has met a few people to have sex with off of facebook. Not my kind of thing but there you go...pedophiles must really like it.

    I think that facebook is bad for society because it makes socializing too easy and you have a neat pile of 'friends' that you collect like pokemon cards. It makes it easy to only talk to people that you can tolerate and you don't have to put up with annoying people. Putting up with annoying people is an essential skill to have I think...if we don't tolerate then it leads to a whole range of social problems. Myspace is just as bad if not worse.

    Most people don't use it like that ^ but some facebook junkies are fucking themselves up more than they can imagine. Perhaps i'm going a bit overboard? yes perhaps. but, perhaps not also!

    Like I posted in the comments on that video a few days ago:

    Did you know this guy who has a Facebook knows a guy who worked at this place that also employed this woman who had a cousin who drove to work with the devil? That means Facebook is owned by the devil. Fact.
