Go! See How Not To Use Facebook!

Posted on July 13th, 2008 by taylorblue

Yes, I use facebook. And yes, I used to be addicted to it. I don’t like that you have to use your real name though so mostly it is only given to people I actually know (with the exception of some people online). I think it’s cool to see how people have grown up. I recently found people that I went to elementary school with. And that has brought back some crazy memories. ( A guy even remembered that he had asked me to marry him on a Valentine when we were in Grade One or something and asked me to marry him now…)

BUT, I have a way that you shouldn’t use facebook. I was going through my mail the normal way I do every morning on Friday and I noticed I was tagged in a photo. My first one ever. So I went to facebook to see what it was…well it was a picture of me as a little girl with my grandfather. And then I read the caption, ‘In Honor of Poppa’…Which totally meant that he died. What a crappy way to find out your grandfather died through facebook like that. So I was searching around there and found his obituary so I knew it was true. (This is my second grandfather that has passed in seven months now.)

So, please tell people before you post that their grandfather died…PLEASE!!

What do you use facebook for?

    Thats a bit rough isn’t it?

    I’m sure that’s quite a unique situation though.

    I do use Facebook, for keeping in touch with people but I’m bored with it now, it’s definitely a novelty.

    never used it- I have enough trouble with people always wanting to be friends with me- facebook would merely add to this.

    Hiya TB..

    We’ve started the group GO! Smell the flowers at facebook and predominantly use it as a way of reconnecting with our past.

    GSTF the community will be encouraging people to make their future happen*

    *From October 2008

    We’ve lost 4 friends on facebook, i.e they’ve died and 1 now has an RIP site that is kept going. The reality is alot of our past is connected through this tip-tapping typing on cyberspace.

    And…

    Our future.

    Facebook is hell when all you’re friends are application junkies and think they’re all cute.

    I use facebook primarily to find old friends and while its helped me find a few, contstant coochie coo application spamming is just annoying. I hardly use it anymore now.
