... I think we pretty much all hate Facebook for one reason or another but, much like the government, we use it anyway.  What are your thoughts on why we still use it, that is if you're aligned with this point of view?

(note: It's been a while since I've used this forum so I apologize if it's in the wrong category.)

I use Facebook to network.I use it for advocacy,for keeping up with politics and local laws ect.

But I think Facebook is rapidly doing itself in and here's why.

16% all I'm perhaps getting from content I like is 16 percent and even that is being censored.


I'd include a link but it's political and I know people hate that so trust me when I say it's only 16 percent of not just page feeds or posts but everyone's page feeds and posts.

I don't game and I hated when they forced timeline on us.How come the only places that get the content exactly right are forums?

So oddly enough Facebook is helping to turn the clock back on itself.


I don't like google plus either.

Other people have real world business reasons for using it. Some use it for family (me too) and others use it because it's convenient.

Tapatalk and online mobile access has to figure into it too.......

It's the easiest way to keep updated on the various forms of stuff I like since I'm still avoiding twitter and checking each individual web site for updates would be maddening. That and there are a few "liked" pages that I think work better in that format like "tweets from the past", "post secrets" or "no hope for the human race" that I'm not sure would work as well in this kind of format. Rarely I'll play a game and I'm able to keep in contact with a few people that I haven't seen or even communicated with in years prior to adding them there.

I only use Facebook to keep up to date with old friends, new friends and getting updates from the bands I listen to. After having children you loose touch with everything so it's nice to be kept updated about real world events, band events etc.

I have my distance friends and family on there... though the only thing keeping me there lately is one of the musicians I follow keeps posting discussions. Granted, there's the slew of people just kissing his a$$, but there is a few of us that actually discusses the topic.

Other than that... Twitter. I follow comic artists on there and a handful of other people. I don't have to wade through tons of crap to get to the people I follow like on facebook. I'd rather have the forums back though... with tons of people. If there's only 5-10 regular posters, you don't get too much discussion because you either already know what someone is going to say or eventually you all agree with one another. tongue

I dip in and out of Facebook and it does come in handy to keep in touch with friends who I would otherwise only "see" once or twice a year at gigs. That said, I'm trying to actively do other things such as catch up on reading and bake - I intensely dislike the way in which it gathers information about you. I dont want anybody know things about me unless I want them to know  Mad

I use Facebook for entertainment, information and keeping in touch with people.

I do it because it seems tailor-made for lazy asses like myself that only want to link to videos or just hit a "Like" button.
