So is anyone else kind of over facebook lately?

Yes, the recent changes have been a bit of an adjustment, but I am talking more about the people on facebook than anything else.

I don't know about your friends, but mine?! Omg. What a bunch of whiners. Its a constant barrage of, "oh I have this illness, I'm soo sick. Feel sorry for me", and "oh, my life is so terrible and I sit around and do nothing to improve it. Feel sorry for me." Followed by a cascade of comments from people who are practically strangers to the person who posted it.

I'm annoyed. I mean, what are really you trying to accomplish when you post things like "noone cares about me" or when people post idiotic and demeaning things about their significant other who doesn't even have a facebook. Seriously, why would you do that?!

Facebook is a sad way to attempt to validate your very existence. Its one thing to post every once in awhile that you had a crap day. Everyone does. But a constant public demonstration of your poor decision making just tells me you need some serious help and facebook is not the place to find it.

I like facebook because it has given me a way to reconnect with old friends and distant family members. I have been able to find new friends and discover new resources by connecting with businesses through social networking. I won't stop using it but I am just so over all the drivel.

OMG, now I need to go back and look at my status updates! :-) The ones I hate are when they update to say they are at Cosco, Wegman's or Panera's etc...I really don't care!

Yeah I have that problem too. Actually the one that did it for me was "In bed with my husband eating oreos" THEN someone replied that they were in bed with homemade cookies.

For one who cares... for another if you're in bed with your husband whether eating or doing other activities why would the world need to know and why do you feel the need to tell the world! and I couldn't believe someone actually replied to it!
