    How Shit Is Facebook

    Just looked at my Facebook page for the first time in over a year and i can honestly say what a load of garbage. Friends who would probably pass you by in the street posting photos of family members that nobody would be possibly interested in other than themselves, saddos telling you what they have had to eat or asking you to like some irrelevant crap. But worst of all from my point of view are the sad bastards back in the UK with no life, fat wifes who they hate, shit jobs, people who think a week in Corfu is adventurous and no way out of their miserable existence asking me how i can handle living in a filthy sleazy place like Thailand...........i hate facebook

    I think they just love posting pictures of themselves. Especially the females.

    A status I read last week went ''Left my phone at my sisters so call my house phone''

    Erm, what for?

    My own sisters postings are very cringeworthy, stupid stuff about family that she should keep to herself.

    The idea of social networking is but a scam.

    It ain't that social.

    Never had a proper FB account and kinda despise the whole culture of it, but the ads they let you put up can be very effective ;-)

    On TD you get scads of repetitive spew from racists and boring twats like you Pat.

    On FB I keep up with friends in Canada and Japan in a low-key yet mainly interesting way.

    Think it's only shit if your friends are. Maybe some of you need a social bumgun to clear away the will-nots.

    ^Good point. I mentioned this forum while chatting with a young feller in line at the Thai embassy in Vientiane a few months back and you'd think I'd hit him with a water canon, never mind a bumgun.

    Stop sending me random things to 'like' and I'll not be racist or boring anymore

    FB is for giggly teenage girls who have to keep up with each others activities. There are no effective filters to keep a determined hacker from gleaning info on you and then possible negative effects. The comparison with an anonymous internet forum like TD is bogus.

    FB has it's uses, not least is free advertising to sell stuff online. I enjoy it to keep in touch with friends overseas. I know an increasing number of people that are seemingly obsessed with it though.

    agree a lot is somewhat superfluous inane banter....
    good way to connect with friends and family though...easy to install security filters and use messaging for more private stuff.

    At least you can post photos without a frickin doctorate in frickin IT

    I would say it's good for families split up around the world.
    As for friends, prefer to meet up at the local for pub like banter, rather than hit the "like" button.

    I googled up TWGF's face book and saw she has a photo of us hugging on the front cover (i.e. no need to log in).

    No harm done I guess until google face recognition photo search becomes a reality.
