Why is there a lot of hate towards Facebook on these forums?

"It leads to cyber bullying" No it doesn't, at least it doesn't if you have the least bit of common sense. Someone harassing you on Facebook? Block them. Easy as that. If they harass you in real life, that's not Facebook's problem at all, (and you should notify the principal or police about harassment in real life). "It's nothing compared to talking in real life". Yeah...but it's not supposed to replace talking in real life. It's supposed to be a tool to keep in touch with others far away, or to chat with others when talking isn't an option. Can you not handle talking to someone in person when you see them, and chatting them when you don't? "Everyone on Facebook is retarded, saying things like #YOLO, etc" Sorry, that's a problem with your friends. Get better ones. Unfriend annoying people, and friend people you actually want to talk to. Problem solved! "They are evil, they r spreading mai personal informashun!!11" No. They are not out to get you. If you aren't some criminal, why would they care about one of the hundreds of millions of people that use Facebook? "I don't want people to see my personal information." Then...don't put any? All you need is your name (Not even full name, you could use a nickname or abbreviate your last name.) People seeing your name and a picture of you (which is optional but recommended) is not gonna kill you. So, why do you hate Facebook, (if you do?) What do you think of Facebook? Discuss Facebook

  • Facebook should have stayed only for people with a .edu email. My feed is littered with my family and middle aged coworkers posting shit like "name a city that doesn't have an a in it."

  • I don't like Facebook because it's been taken over by gross old people sharing pictures of their kids. Dunno why I still use it... I don't, really, I post like maybe three times a week, but it's always up for some reason.

    It's the largest and most central collection of utter idiocy, ignorance, angst, futility and downright mental destitution I have ever seen. I want no part in it whatsoever.

        I never saw the appeal in social sites. I didn't like Myspace and I didn't like Google Plus, I never even bothered to make a Facebook but I'm sure it's just as lame.

        • OP, I largely agree but it is usually not that simple to get rid of cyber-bullies. They can make alternate accounts, or just use it to spread hurtful rumours or whatever else about you even if you have blocked everyone. And god help you if you made the mistake of posting private information on there.

        • Most users have a small social circle or they associate with people who don't use facebook. IMO facebook is a great place to talk and share things with [b]people you already know[/b]. If this forum took a few things from facebook for the update, the new site may have been way better.

        • I laugh at people who don't do the social networking thing. It's really cumbersome to invite people to a party or event, and then have to contact several other people separately because they don't have facebook, G+, Twitter, etc., and then let them know separately if any details change.

        • It's fantastic for organizing events with my friends, swapping shifts for work, and passing news through large groups. I really don't see any downsides. If your experience sucks, it could be because your friends suck.

            • 1 Any form of online communication can lead to cyber bullying, saying otherwise is absurd; and last i checked, ignoring a problem has a tendency to do nothing in the way of solving it (and remember kids, cyber bullying isn't some anon calling you a fag, it's people you know doing horrible things, of course it's easy to dismiss it as teenage angst and whatnot, but just remember that if you do that, you're part of the problem) 2 yeah i find that stupid too 3 stupid shit like that exists because of facebook and other sites like it; i want them to keep their shit away from my shit, but there's so much of their shit that it's flooding into the rest of the internet and real life. 4 How do you think facebook makes money? selling your details to ad companies that want it; How do they do it? well if you're not posting your information yourself (like most facebook users) they can pretty easily track you across the internet, the linked video is just the tip of the iceberg (and even if you do post you're on info, they'll track you anyway 'cuz #loadsamoney(see what you've caused?)) 5 people are idiots; source: facebook in it's entirety And you know, that's just me refuting your points, there are many more reasons to hate the site that have been said a million times before and a million times better than i could ever say them.

                • Facebook and social media sites in general are stupid and annoying. I don't need to be connected to people through a stupid site. Deleted my account many years ago and have enjoyed life without it quite fine. If people want to talk to me there is this thing called email and skype that's not intrusive and I can actually have meaningful conversations with people. Facebook is full of idiots and "look at me!" people who are like players in fps games that pad their k/d. Instead of k/d they pad stats by adding absurd amount of friends (many they don't ever talk to or know), post 1k pictures of themselves always showing up in your feed, and the really stupid status updates of meaningless tasks people are doing each day. The day facebook burns to the ground will be a glorious day indeed.

                    I deleted my Facebook because I hardly ever used it and got paranoid about just how much information there is on my activities on the Internet. I don't like social media due to the data mining the companies that run the services conduct. I do not want anyone but myself to know about some things I do on the internet.
