Default Facebook sucks

I mean it's good for somethings but who here is sick of the daily "you have pending notifications" and when you go and login to facebook, it says you have no notifications.

Seriously, are they that desperate for people to go to facebook everyday.

I was on Facebook back in 2006 when it was only for college students and I wasn't even in college. Was telling everyone to dump MySpace for Facebook. Sometime around 2008-9 the artsy hipsters invaded it and I deleted mine. Haven't been on since.

I don't need to know who's doing laundry or what kind of sandwich some clown is eating.

I use facebook to promote my bands gigs. It links up to the webpage. Plus i got back in touch with some old friends so that was sort of cool. But I could see where a lot of people just have no need for it. If your one of those i could care less about old friends, sharing pictures, liking bands/groups/pages etc to stay updated on their calendar etc etc.

I don't like how they manage the information flow on the site though. But you can turn off notifications to your email.

I signed up for it in April last year so I could get info on getting Tix for the 1st game. Everybody told me I'd get addicted. I didn't. I still don't understand the huge appeal.

Yep, if I didn't have friends and family scattered all around the country I wouldn't use it either.

I also like that I can get info on events so I can plan concerts or museums etc...

Corporate America came a bit later. Back then though it was people who were too cool for MySpace. Seems the hipsters are dropping off Facebook these days though. Now they are clucking their hooves onto Pheed.

I troll many of the 'friends' I have on certain issues. Good times.

Also +1 on keeping in touch with real friends an family who prefer it to a text message or regular email.

Most of it sucks though. One just needs to apply some generous filtering to what makes I on your wall.

I use it to keep in touch with friends and family out of state. They put up what their kids are doing, family pictures, news, etc. There are people who use it to post what they are eating and whatnot, but that is something twitter is used more for and you can unfollow those people. I do agree that facebook hasn't been "cool" anymore for some time, but that's fine. It's a utility for me.

I managed to kill my facebook page in February. You have to have the willpower to not look at your page for two full weeks to kill it. Facebook, google, and youtube were tracking eveything I did online. Can't quite quit youtube, although I quit the other two.

I got sucked in to the games on there. But I do like checking to see what friends are doing here and there.

Only thing i can think of is somebody posted something that you get a notifcation for, but then deleted it. The notification still goes through. Or the person who admins the page deleted it etc. I have had a couple notifications that led nowhere because of that.

I actually enjoy facebook. I like to see what my family and friends in other states are up to, and love to be able to share with my family and extended relatives the things going on with myself - especially my kids. It's greases the conversation during reunions as well. All in all, I'd say it's a net positive in my life.

Facebook is what you make of it... The site is fine; it's just the people that can make it great or pure shiat!

Keep your friends list short and sweet and you'll have a better experience.

hey Cut, does your band have a page or do you use your personal page ? this might be a good time for a little self promotion.

I use mine for family pictures and stuff, i try to go away as much as i can, and my parents like to see what the grand kids are doing at all times, so its good for that.

I have a site where i post all my food and beer stuff that im eating or drinking, shameless plug ( you can like it and be one of the 10's and 10's of people that do) www.facebook.com/fussyfoody

I have plans for putting recipies and stuff up for some of the stupid foods that i do one of these days.

back to the OP, its even worse on an iphone, every notification shows up in notification center, and shakes the phone as if something important is goign on, turned that off real quick

Facebook is where I go, for news. If there is something important, that I need to know, it shows up on my news feed. Plus, I do enjoy some of the games...
