Can you live without FaceBook or any other social networking site? Without chatting with your friend, without Wall-ing your friends' profile, without updating your status, etc. Can you handle this? For me... Maybe I can't life without FaceBook or the other social networking site. Because most of my relation, family, and friends, live far away from me. So, the only way to contact them efficiently is with FaceBook. What about you? Can you live without facebook?

Hi andryan7legends, I'm not an active and regular member of FB. Therefore it wouldn't affect my usual daily life if without facebook. I log in fb whenever my friends and close ones share with me some info or whatever. Yeah, just similar to your situation, they do not live near me and some even live in distant region. I learn this from emails sent by fb to my mailbox. They will send me email at the same time if the info is really important It seems that myLot is more important to me for I spend my leisure time here for almost every day lol.... Happy posting

YEs, i can live without facebook because it's not something important to me. It's only a social network site, and waht's the big deal? OUr friends are not always there 24/7 and neither are we. Why so anxious about being there, chatting to friends when we can call or text them? IF they are able to chat in fb, it means they are free for that moment right? I would prefer a real meet up then to meet in fb.

It's a BIG deal. I live far, really far away from my friends and family. Phone them? It's so expensive. Text them? It's not efficient if we want to talk about something important. Yes of course our friends are nor always there... Facebook is the only way to stay in touch with them (not stay in touch 24/7 of course) Thank you for the reply! Happy Mylotting!

Yes, I'm not addicted to it too. For me, there is no life without facebook because I live really far away from my family and friends. And the only way to tell my condition is with facebook. Because using phone and text, it's expensive here. Thank you for the reply! Happy Mylotting!

I'm kind of the opposite of trying to live without facebook. I recognize that all of my friends have either moved away from me or are going to in the future. I can't really seem to live with facebook. I can't really seem to come up with what to say to people when I'm just staring at a profile of them. In my opinion facebook deeply cuts off the feeling of connection for me and sometimes I feel like I'm just wasting my time trying to stay in contact with people through the methods of social networking.

So, is there any method to stay in contact with people that live really far away from us?? Phone? Text? it's expensive. I prefer use facebook because it's easy to use and cheap and efficient. Thank you for the reply! Happy Mylotting!

i have met some very good friends in facebook who i dont wish to lose. but at the same time facebook is addictive -- a reason i hate if for though i still use it to keep in touch with my virtual hommies. so i guess i cant live without it.

Me too... It's very hard to stay in touch with family and friend without facebook. But, for your information, I'm not addictive to it. Thank you for the reply! Happy Mylotting!

Hi there, As what you defined facebook is, think I can live without it for I am not that sociable person although admittedly I log in there daily. Nowadays I just visit my FB page once in a while to check friend requests or leave messages to friends. Honestly, mylot stole my loyalty to facebook and other social sites.

There is no chat feature in mylot, and most of my family use facebook, So I can't leave facebook because I need to stay in touch there. Thank you for the reply! Happy Mylotting!

i think i can live without it. i have lived before facebook exist. for me it doesn't matter. i donot like it much. i have account but i never update my status there. it is worthless to do.
• Indonesia
15 Jan 11
Yeah. You careless with it I think. I think you don't have friend or family that live far away from you. So, you think it's worthless to stay in touch in facebook or other social networking site. Oh. Yeah, but it's your opinion, right. For me, Past and now is different. Thank you for the reply! Happy Mylotting!

I don't know. I mean, I can live without the games in it, seeing that I'm better off with playing other online games, though it's always nice to keep in touch daily with your friends, ex-classmates, relatives from the other side of the world, so on... Never saw much point in Twitter though, where I'd usually use as a promotional platform for my online articles and nothing else. :)
• Indonesia
15 Jan 11
Yeah, use Twitter just to promoto my blog link. Hehehe. And for me, I don't use Facebook to play game to be honest. I just use it to communicate with my family and friends. Thank you for the reply! Happy Mylotting!

Of course! I don't even like Facebook that much, I mostly use it because my friends do, so I am not sure I would miss it very much at all, to be honest!

Me, I guess I can't live without Facebook. I can live without it for around a day or two but not for long. It's the only way I get in contact with my friends and classmates from long ago. Through it, I was able to attend several meet-ups/mini reunions and reconnect with long time pals. I can't keep in touch with other types of social networking sites or even through the phone. I find it easier to "keep my friendship" through FB. Happy myLotting!

Yes. I agree with you. I can lose contact with my friends and family that live far away from me if there's no Facebook. Stay in touch with phone is so... Expensive. Thank you for the reply! Happy Mylotting!

Become addicted to something it's not good if you can not control it. So, you must control it, friend. Thank you for the reply! Happy Mylotting!

I could quite happily live without facebook! I was a late starter on Facebook only got it about a year ago! The only reason I got it is because I was moving away from my hometown and wanted to keep in touch without running up a huge phone bill. I have got quite into the games tho!

Yeah. Me too. I use it to stay in touch with my friend and family that live far away from me. Thank you for the reply! Happy Mylotting!

I don't know if i can. I am so used to opening my facebook everyday already. And now i am having a new job, it will be requiring me to have less time with the internet. And even my mylot, i don't know if i can ever live without it. I know it's not that hard because i have lived before without these things but i am used to it already so i think it will be a challenge for me.

Hi andryan7legends, Most of us have the same feeling. We have busy life and meeting friends and relatives in person is not a easy one. These social networking sites are connecting bonds with all our friends, family and relatives. I would say, best of internet is social networking sites and i cannot think of living without them. Enjoy mylotting Cheers!

Do you really tell them significant thing in Facebook? How about the wall item? Is it important? I have seen my teen grandchildren´s wall and it is pitiful. Yet I love to talk to them because they are youngsters that are interested in life, love and our planet. But it doesn´t show there. My younger grandson´s wall is worse. His friends think it is funny to write stupid or grosse things. YES. I can live without Facebook.
