Oh facebook, the thorn in my side during High School. I must have been the last person among my friends to get an account, and it wasn't even by choice. I was harassed by nearly everyone I knew at school for not having one and was thought to be out of touch. One day, one of my pals came up to me and showed that they created a facebook page for me. This was before the south park episode about facebook too, so it seemed to be completely out of the blue. I barely use the damn thing anways and have shared almost nothing personal. In fact, I think I only have uploaded two photos to it ever. I only use it to chat with people I ordinary wouldn't be able to on the FB messenger.

Personally, I prefer small communities like this one. I like not being required to share personal info and participate in actual discussions rather than just read people's bullcrap updates I don't give a damn about. Facebook will never replace real human to human contact. The fact anyone would suggest not having an account or not using it often is a sign of psychopathy offends me.

It's probably a bit late for you to know this, but your friends violated Facebook's TOS (see section 4.1).  You probably could have complained to Facebook to have them lock/remove "your" page.

Yeah, it's way too late now. If I closed my account today, I'd probably get a gazillion emails from people questioning why I closed it and saying it was stupid to close it, bla bla bla bla. Besides, while I'm not a fan of Facebook, it is useful in communicating with people who I don't have contacts for in other ways. For instance, in the last four years, my cell phone has crapped out and lost all its contacts twice, and without Facebook I wouldn't have been able to get my high school friends' numbers back. Never the less, I still can't stand using FB for daily communication :P.

I personally only use FB to keep in touch with people I otherwise couldn't, but other then that I don't play any of the stupid games that flood FB by the millions, or go around posting over 9000 memes every day, or have over 500 friends (I have 123 Friends on my FB). I also use FB because I'm a member of the Staff at an Anime Convention, and we have a group on FB... so it's kinda easy to keep in contract with my director and what have you.

I have a Facebook account, and USED to post on it regularly. At this point, I could care less. Hearing (Seeing) People spam the front page with memes and similar annoying little things... I just want to use a computer for sites like this and IRC, where people DON't say the most random things they can think of.

And besides... When I still had a computer, going on Facebook made the virus software go haywire. It squirmed like a bear caught in trap.

No offense to the bears that frequent this site.
