I have used Facebook for about 2 years now but now I think it's getting pretty boring. I mean, it was fun when I was first using it but now I'm getting bored of it and its apps. Any of you feel the same way?

I have pretty much given up on Facebook. Especially now that I have switched to dial up, the pages take forever to load, if they even load at all. I have become bored with it and find I have better things to do with my time then wait forever for the page to come up.

See, I have great wireless connection and the pages still take FOREVER to load. I've been using Facebook for a few years now, and honestly all I do is log in to see whatever new status updates my friends may have posted before moving on. And to be honest, I could do that with Twitter now if only all my friends were on there. I never actually cared for the FB applications.

Actually so many social community sites are being developed in the present market. So what is to be done with this old one?

I have been using facebook for a while now and I am sometimes bored with it. But with my favorite apps, I then have some more time playing and the like and not get bored anymore. Sometimes I go to my friends' page to see what recent apps they have added that I might like too. Sometimes I just look in their pictures, their wall just to have something to do.

Hmm.. although the novelty of facebook has worn off, I'd say that I spend even more time on facebook now than I used to when I first created a fb account. It's probably because I have more FB friends, which means more profiles to keep up with heh. One thing that I have noticed, though, is that most people's profiles are starting to look more and more alike. And even though you might keep checking a certain person's FB to see if there have been any changes in their life or themselves, most often they are still the same person who hasn't changed. They may have a new haircut, wardrobe, friends, or "cooler" tagged photos of themselves partying, but underneath all of there isnt much that is different about them. SO yeah, I guess in that sense, facebook IS getting boring because many facebook users (or at least the ones on my list) are the ones who are making facebook boring.

Yea I've gotten so bored with Faceboook that I don't even use the internet to check it anymore, I use my phone for a few seconds and move to the next thing. And I only check Facebook when I'm bored nowadays. I used to get so annoyed when I would sign on and see 35 notifications, only to find out that 30 of them are from those stupid applications, so I blocked all of the apps. I also think it's funny how Facebook and MySpace are becoming the same, they have the same apps, the chat thing, and statuses. Its all boring and repetitive now.
