How often, if ever, do you use Facebook?
I will go on a couple times per day. On the days that I'm really bored... every few minutes. It's an addiction. I have it bad.
I voted once or twice a day, but in reality I almost never go to the site itself. I read all of my friend's updates using friendstream on my phone.
i am on it all day because my phone isnt in yet and work in the office can be extremely slow
I can go anywhere from every other day to every other minute. Just depends on how busy work is.
I go on at least once a day. I use Facebook on my phone more than the website on my computer.

I maybe check my faecbook once or twice a week, I only have mine for sentimental reasons, (had it back when it was invite only for colleges and universities). theres just way too much crap on there that I have no interest in hearing about.
I don't use Facebook, I am an adult.
I'm on every day. Sometimes I'm on every hour if comments become an ongoing conversation.
all day erry day
yeah, I'm bad for it too......if I am at my computer, you can bet I have facebook open.
I use it quite a bit. It's fun to see what my friends and family are up to. I don't play games on it or anything like that and I've hidden that from my feed. All I care about is keeping contact.
One of our kids is overseas for another year. Facebook is being used by his wife and us for updates on his whereabouts and situation.
It seems amazing to me, that contact and ability to have real information instead of just worry.
I preferred it when you had to be in a college to use it. Would've kept it more of an exclusive thing. Now my feed "block list" is huge. Filled with applications, likes, and that kind of stuff. After I went through a "friend" purge removing anyone who posts annoying crap, song lyric statuses, I don't talk to in person, or I don't actually care about it's actually quite manageable haha
have you guys seen this number game everyone is playing now?
where someone sends a number to your inbox, then you post something about them as your status? like "#34, we had so many good times back in high school, blah, blah, etc."
it makes me want to delete my facebook account. my news feed is filled with this garbage
I made a status post about it last night actually.. "What the f**k is up with this number game? Seriously. Nobody gives a shit about what random shit you wanna post to the moron that provided you with said number. Kthxbai"
It's got 13 likes and 20 comments so I'd say I'm not the only one who feels this way.
It's not Facebook that is the problem. It's the number game. You don't blame the invention of paper because you hate chain letters.
Facebook was only cool for roughly 3 years when it was only for college/university students. I had Facebook in its prime when I was in college and it was pretty fun.
Then it made the step to open up to high schools.. Now it has your mom, your dad, your grandma, your boss, your coworkers, your aunt, your uncle, 12 year old kids.. and just about everyone else under the sun..
No thanks! Facebook are suck now.
i would be deleting it simply because of what a joke it's turning into with the games, etc.
and have you ever heard of a chain letter that was actually on paper? i haven't lol
Facebook still has it's moments. Either way, it's a great way to stay in touch with people you can't see everyday.
Yes, yes I have. (Shows my age a bit.)
Dont have facebook so never
You young ones these days have it easy. Back when I was a kid, I had to actually use pen and paper to write chain letters. Not only that, we had to write multiple copies of the chain letter by hand because we had to forward it on to multiple people. It was not as easy sending chain letters back then. It took more work than just adding another person to the To field of an email. We also couldn't afford the 10 cents per page to photocopy the letters either. You kids these days don't know how good you got it.
And back then they felt even stupider when they realized after sending it to eleventy billion people that their true love wasn't going to show up naked on the door step at 2:46 in the morning holding a sign that says "do me!"
