most of th eapplications are so useless and just a show-off attitude which then use up your space and take hours to upload or load....do you feel the same? i mena that it takes up more time to load the page when u have lots of apps?

hello. facebook apps i find them much better than myspace. facebook is a community which allows full control over who can view my profile etc. thats the main reason I use it. Facebook is much better than other communities.

I guess it is to show your personality but most of them ARE useless. I usually ignore requests now!

I have found that Facebook is much more "fun" compared to myspace. The applications (depending on what type computer you have, and your modem being dial up or cable) don't really take more than 1-2 seconds to download. These applications are just something fun to do, and they can sometimes show your personality by the type of applications you have added. All in all. Facebook is really quite fun. :-)

I Guess the idea is that you can show your personality through these applications. I agree with you, I find them annoying and they do just slow down the loading of someone's profile. I have about 3 applications on mine and if I want a new one I tend to rotate them round so I don't clog my profile up with useless information!

I don't think the applications in Facebook are useless. If people odn't want to use them, don't use them. If something is useless to you, it may be intereting to something else. People are on facebook, mainly to have fun.
