I don’t really understand the point of Facebook. I mean, if I have a blog, and if I have Twitter, do I really need another personal website to keep up with? Perhaps if I could use it to catalog all my movie and book reviews, and link to it from my blog for your enjoyment, I would find it useful. But one is not able to access my Facebook page unless one is already a Facebook member and adds me as a friend.
I’ve actually found more old friends through my blog than I have through Facebook. So perhaps Facebook is a great tool for those without other social network tools at their disposal?
The other thing I find creepy is that everything you do on Facebook gets recorded in your profile, such as, “JenZug updated her profile picture,” or “JenZug wrote on so-and-so’s wall: “insert message I wrote here, for all of facebook to read,” or “JenZug joined the group, Masturbator’s annonymous.”
You really have to be careful of what you do in there.
One thought on “facebook: undecided”
Personally I don’t understand the appeal of Facebook either for all the reasons you mentioned. Could some facebook devotee please explain…?
