Anyone else fed up with facebook? I'm tired of all the apps, games, invitations, suggestions, etc. I also hate the fact that everything I do gets broadcasted out to everyone in my friends list. I don't care to see everything that my friends become fans of or who their new friends are. It has become so intrusive.

I'm about to delete my account, which turns out is a pain in the ass too. http://www.groovypost.com/howto/security/permanently-delete-your-facebook-profile-account/

F you facebook! I'm out!

:argue: :buttkick:

I don't have Facebook, but couldn't you solve that one problem by not typing anything?

Not everything. There is no setting to stop broadcasting everything that you do. If I post on someones page, everyone in my friends list will be notified.
Yeah I see what you're getting at. Not much you can really do about that but at least it's not sending you a notification everytime but instead other people haha.

You can choose who you want to see it. You can also disable feeds from apps, but not the friends they come from.

I deleted my Myspace account because of all the bullshit apps on there. Facebook is getting to become the same damn way and it does get old. I like Facebook better though because alot more people I went to school with and know in general are on there.

Exactly. If you're not gonna type anything on facebook, then why have an account?
I have a facebook account for one reason... I don't send friend requests... I don't post shit up... I accept friend requests so I can look at pics of what people look like after 10-15yrs.

It also has put me back in touch with some people who I've lost touch with who didn't know any other way to find me. My name is unique enough that it's the only facebook account that comes up when you search it.

I've got no problem with facebook because I don't get all gay with it.

But I do get dumfounded by people who post their every thought, their every fart, and every meal they eat :eek:

Sounds like you need to learn how the privacy settings work.
Everything you've complained about can be resolved.
I think you're full of shit. Sure I can block some of the stuff I mentioned, which will in turn block other things I might wanna see.

And there is no way to hide my activity from showing up to others... if you're so sure, why not share how to?

Maybe I'm just a hermit, but I honestly don't give a shit what 150 of my friends are doing every day. A phone call is just as good, stopping by is better.

I signed up about a year ago to see if I could find any family members of the guy that originally bought my '57 Chrysler. I've got 15-20 friend requests, but I don't even know how to respond to them. f it
