Facebook has its pros and cons. I use it on a very limited basis. Very limited. it's a good way to keep in touch with friends on a really light level. You see a couple of pictures and what they're up to and everything. And it's a convenient way to find a long lost friend if you need to. There's a decent amount of privacy which is comforting relative to all the other websites.
On the other hand, personally speaking, a lot of the "applications" are a nuisance. What's worse is how much time people spend on it. I heard it's classified as an addiction now. I'm 30 years old now, I don't want to "chat" or "poke" people. I see people at work on it all the time, which is not good. So, much of the way people use facebook is very childish and a waste of time. But, fortunately, there are some very useful and cool features which is why i even participate. Overall, it's a pretty nice idea and I like it, and if people want to waste a lot of time on it, so be it. but, as with everything else, I'll use it as a tool and nothing more. Everyone accuses me of sucking the fun out of things anyway.
So...who wants to add me as a friend?
