Both. I deleted my account as of 1/1/14. Hope I can stay away. It's such a time-waster for me.

I really like Facebook but certainly recognize some downsides. While it may cause some to be less social in real life, I never was all that social IRL so it is very nice way to connect more than I might otherwise, with people that I have known throughtout life, friends, and family.

My husband gets grouchy because of people posting "share this or that" images and pictures of food (usually fattening, but whatever). I tell him what is the big deal? Can't you just quickly scroll past the stuff you are not interested in, and if there is nothing interesting at all, just shut down the site? I feel about the same way about the Spark Cafe. I check to see if there is anything interesting but never click on dull topics like the ones that asked if I drank enough water today. I like being able to share pictures and short videos of fun events and I love it when my friends and relatives do the same.

I do not post personal or negative stuff on there, like not getting along with a family member or something like that. On the other hand, if someone I care for is in the hospital, I might let people know, and tell them were to send a card or something. It works fairly well (though not perfectly) for getting the word out.

I actually find some entertainment value out of some of the stupid things people post on there. Once this woman asked FB friends to post on word about her that started with the 4th letter of her name, which in this case was T.

Her own husband posted "Trailer Trash" and then added sorry it was not just one word. I was not sure if he was kidding, but it turns out, not.

Not long after that, they were split up and now they are divorced. But why open yourself up for people to post that kind of thing about you? It is not something I would do.

I think facebook privacy is a joke. I don't bother with worrying about privacy settings because I know if anybody wants to see what I post badly enough, they will find a way. Therefore, I make it a point to never post anything on there I would not want the whole world to know, whether this includes friends or enemies or both.

I went on once long ago, to check it out. I never got back on. Just not my thing I guess. It's a nice way of staying in touch with people, but don't feel I have time to do this. I'm glad others enjoy it though! emoticon

Depends on the day. There are days that I love getting on there and seeing all that my friends and family are doing and other days, it seems like such a negative place w/ everyone complaining.

I go in spurts. I'll love it and be on it far too much, then get sick of it and not be on all that much. I do, however, really like the groups my friends and I have made for our weight loss challenges and for events like our yearly wine tour. We can banter just on those pages with each other and know that we aren't bothering anybody else and nobody who isn't on our page can see what we are posting either so it's really nice.

I really dislike it. Our family had a bad situation and the kids went on line and did their thing. It is a disgrace. I have no use for that mess. They say things and don not think. I have sparks, and I do not need nothing else.

I love it for staying in touch with family and friends, but I hate it when someone thinks they need to post 20 things in a row about "If you love (fill in the blank) share on your timeline". Seriously, give it a break!

I love it, it is how I keep in touch with family that is far away.

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

Love it! I've lost 210 pounds doing low carb. I use mine to help new low carbers, kind of mentoring and motivating. And it keeps ME accountable because they watch me. :)

I used to love facebook, but after the many changes and privacy breeches, I've weaned myself off a bit. I still upload some pics, but i'm cautious of what I put up. Even my status's I am very careful. I like to use facebook to keep in touch with friends and pages, but as far as my own personal life, I am careful

I can't say either way since you have to join to check it out. I'm not sure I want an old boyfriend from 20 years ago to find me and if I go private I'm sure my daily spheel would just bore my friends.

I am weaning myself off Facebook and it really helped when I left my last job. A good amount of people from my old job were not my friends but I felt obligated to accept their friends request because of it. Now that I left I unfriended most of them and started to unfollow some of my other "friends" so that I don't see their posts all the time.

I've never bothered with Facebook much, boring times~

"If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so. Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay."

"Your happiness is up to you. Whatever happened in your life to make you who you are up until this point is irrelevant. It is your responsibility now to take control and change your life to be what you want it to be. Energy and persistence conquer all things. Make time, not excuses."

Created an account and was on for about one week back (I think) in 2007,then deleted the account and have never been back on since. ... I just don't have time for it...mainly wanted to see what all the hype was about. Even my kids who have accounts have told me they are on less and less these days....emoticon

Theres no "either or", if I hated it, I wouldn't be on it. I like it because I get to see pictures and read what relatives all over the place are doing. I don't "love" it, though.

Sure I have friends that over share. That doesn't mean that I have to over share.

You can share as much or as little as you like. It is completely up to you.

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

the rocky road before you now will lead you to a rainbow.

happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.

almost anything in life is easier to get into than out of.

a diamond is a piece of coal that stuck to the job.

sow an act and you reap a habit. sow a habit and you reap a character. sow a character and you reap a destiny.

I've seen enough of it when my kids are visiting and check their facebook to know that I don't need or want that much information so I've not signed up and don't plan to.

Be your kind of beautiful.
Losing weight is hard. Staying overweight is hard. Pick your own kind of hard.

I have a love/hate relationship with it. Love that it helps me stay in contact with people that I don't get to see that often. Hate that people use it to overshare.

The past is gone; the future is distant.
Today you CAN succeed.
Set a goal you can achieve in the next 24 hours.

Neither really.

I like that I can "friend" my highschool classmates that I wouldn't see or interact with otherwise, but I think that some people post the most ridiculous things on there. I would be embarrased if it was my page. I rarely post anything on my page, and if I do, it certainly isn't something personal and it isn't some veiled comment in the hopes that everyone will ask me what's wrong.

I don't like it. Mark Zuckerberg may think Facebook keeps people "connected". Personally, I think it creates a social DIS-connect between people. Meaning people are so used to interacting online, they don't know how to act in person anymore. It strikes me that the rise in rudeness seems to correspond with the increase in online activity.

I have a dummy Facebook page that I use to correspond with family members who do use it. However, I rarely use it and I don't post any personal information. I had people tried to friend me and all I could think was,"and who the heck are you?"

Anyone remember Myspace ? Don't be surprized if before long FB goes the way of Myspace.

I love it for the good reasons and I don't like it for the other reasons. With that in mind, I am taking a Facebook hiatus (and it feels good)!
