    25 Things I Hate About Facebook

    25 Things I Hate About Facebook

    I'm an on and off again Facebook user.  I liked this video.  It pretty much sums up Facebook for me...

    What do you think?  Do you use Facebook?  How do you use it best?

      Facebook is a great tool.  Tools can be misused.  I’m keeping this to remind me of that fact.

      The two he didn’t mention that would be on my list is the privacy settings and the spam from games.

      Whenever FB changes their privacy policy, all of the settings get tweaked to give out more information than is needed.  So you have to go back again and again and lock things down.  Instead of starting with, “deny all,” and working up from there, FB is happy to share everything including that childhood pic of you playing in the sprinklers that your friend put up with complete strangers.

      And the same idea goes for games.  No, I do not need to see how your farm, pets, fish bowl, or dice game is going every time you level up or have a limit break.

      The “hide” button is my best friend on facebook - the number one best medicine for face-rage. I may have to look at somebody’s farm-yo-mafia-town-war-game announcement once, but “hide” (it appears to the right of their post) makes it disappear from now on - for them & for every other person who uses that app & let’s me still see their waaaaay too frequent status updates (which I don’t mind too terribly). Ahh, I feel better now…

      How about those who try to use facebook as a conflict resolution tool?  That one is just lovely.  So, now we go and POST something special and supposedly vague but everybody knows who we’re talking about!  or we send them a message instead of personally going and talking.  UGH


      The I’m depressed, poor me, my life is over posts from those who like drama and attention?

      Invitations to join in posting statements I don’t really want to post.
      “if you love your husband post…blah blah blah”
      or my least personal favorite I recieved from even Christian women to post my bra color.  Yeah, that’s what every teen-age boy in our church needs to know about their pastor’s wife!

      That said, I’ve found it a great way to keep connected with former ministry friends and church members, friends from the past, and
      current students at the symphony and the public school, who then connect with kids I have at church… I’ve seen some awesome ministry moments and connections happen.  This may be more effective because we are in a small community.
