I’ll be honest. I hate Facebook.
- As a web developer, I would like to think that I can easily find my way around Facebook. Instead, I feel absolutely retarded.
- It’s (yet) another inbox that I have to manage.
- Security Issues
I’m not the only one…
But, the thing about Social Networking is that in order to build a network, you have to be where your friends are—and most (if not all) of my friends have a Facebook account. Unfortunately, that’s the only way that I know to get in touch with some people.—I know that’s what Zuckerberg is counting on. Blah!
On to more important things…
This series is supposed to be about how I use Social Media. Complaining about it, isn’t helpful.
I use Facebook from a completely personal level. As I said before, that’s the only way that I know to get in touch with some people. I am only friends with people on Facebook that I’m friends with in real life.
Where I struggle with Facebook
I am (still) not addicted to Facebook.—which makes it difficult when that’s the only way some people communicate. It’s gotten me in trouble before when I’ve missed event invitations, or, when people rely on Facebook to communicate important pieces of information.
I’m not the only one experiencing frustrations. Within the past couple of years, TechCrunch has reported a decline. Honestly, I don’t know how much of that to take seriously. But, at the very least, it appears to be news worthy.
This concludes Part 10 of 11 completed parts of my 11 part series on how I use a variety of web services:
- Gmail and Google Calendar
- Google Reader
- Remember the Milk
