You're in an elite club, my aunty would kill you to take your place, I'm the one family member who doesn't have her on facebook because she is the worst on facebook, she doesn't just share peoples posts, she saves their photos and reuploads them onto her account, last year my dad and his partner went to Scottland and posted holiday snaps every few days, she was saving them to her computer and putting them up with vague comments, it took about a week of people thinking she was in Scottland before she finally came clean that it was just my dads pics.

LOL, that's bizarre behaviour... my cousin's boyfriend does something similar, but he has an intellectual disability. I "liked" a colleague's profile pic of her with her new puppy once, it must have shown in his news feed because it was public, so he not only liked it as well but he shared it. I had to call her and explain that he doesn't quite understand that he doesn't have to hit "share" on everything he sees and likes, so she didn't think he was a complete creep

I use Skype and Steam more than I use Facebook. Facebook is super great for keeping in touch with people because EVERYONE is on it but that doesnt mean I like it. Its a love hate really it scares me with its wantingness and disregard for my privacy, its always wanting something which doesnt work for me. I dont use it really I only have it to access apps really.

See I don't like facebook because it's a central corporate silo of online social content. I'd rather own my own social data thankyou very much.

I am very quiet on facebook and am only really on their to keep in touch with family and close friends. I pruned 188 people about 6 years ago and had just 30 friends, but am now back to 120.

I have a rule about work where I don't add anyone, because if you add someone you like and gel with then other people see that and you have no basis for which to refuse them without causing problems. Foolishly, I accepted a friend request so I could message someone (as I'd left my doorcard at home) and it spiralled out of control from there.

Due for another pruning soon :)

I'm amazed by the crap that people put on there... over 50's have a tendency to share cartoons or those stupid, stupid sayings and all their friends like them and natter on about it. Young people put selfies on or just talk about how amazing their lives are (and I presume this is where dissatisfaction from others comes in). Me? I put up the occasional silly picture of my kids (very, very rarely) and share political writings at about the same frequency.

I post more on forums than anywhere else, obviously :D

I think the most amusing feature is the "on this day" feature... someone needs to go back in time and punch 25 year old me in the head. Why did I post sooooo much stuff? I honestly used to update my status about 10 times a day. WTF.

Are you going? I'd rather reverse a car over my left nipple than attend a school reunion.

I live in a small town. If I still wanted to be friends with those fuckers, I would be.

The idea of school reunions are so weird to me, growing up in a tiny ass town there were literally 8 of us by the time we got to year 12, those of us who still live in town or left and came back see each other down the street or at the pub all the time so we've never really bothered to have official reunions... I think if we did have one everyone would show up just because of how noticeable it would be if you didn't, plus being such a small group your options were get along with everyone or be alone so nobody was a real asshole.

Ehh... I have it, but only really use it to post what I'm up to with artwork because my relatives like to see it and it's easier to post WIPs that way, and put complete pieces where they can see it. Besides that, the occasional brief commentary on the hilarity of life, and posting funny pictures. :lol: Need to mess with a few settings though, I hate seeing political posts even if it's something I agree with.

Lol some of the "cool/popular" kids from school organised a 5 year reunion.... like seriously, 5 years? It's not long enough to forget that you were all arseholes. Anyway, the budget blew out within 30 minutes so I'm happy I didn't go or pay.
The only people I really care to see from school I still see so that's reunion enough for me.

Whoever came up with the idea of school reunions is a dickhead, IMO.

LOL.

I avoid school reunions like the plague. I just don't want my memory of people that I liked at school to be tainted. Good thing I'm off Facebook.
