First of all, Hi ! So you have the question, i really want to know why everybody have an account on facebook? Personal, i don't use any social network, Why ? Because ...first of all i don't like picture, it's not about that i'am ugly guy or something else, i just don't love everything that can record me. Second is that i love more to chat on Skype , on Y!M, i have a lot of friends from different countries. Third...i really like to keep my personal info only in my head, we know that personal info is a big problem for facebook, on internet we can find a lot of discussion on this subject. Personal Information is the thing that need to be keeped in a safe place..like my head ! I have telled you why i don't use facebook and othersocial network, now tell me ? Why do you use them ?

Yes, people use facebook just for playing, or know things about other people. I think facebook is useless, I just use facebook to earn some money :)

@bhanushali1 Last words "waste of time " wonderfull words. Tell me, isn't more interesting to discuss here about a lot of things then waste time there ? I know, for someone facebook is his life. In my country now was presented the frist phone with a FaceBook button, WOW ? It's a miracle isn't? For me that device is nothing....just a simple phone and button that gets you to facebook page. All day on radio i hear about this new release. Facebook has "killed" all the world, has virrused everything. After i have seen that movie, social network, i have a lot of respect for Mark , the CEO of FaceBook, great guy, with a wonderful head and idea, but it's not for me ! I respect him but i don't use his site :)) and this is pretty funny ! Be aware : i don't hate facebook....maybe it's cool i just think that using that site is a really waste of time...you don't get absolutly nothing from there :) GoodLuck and keep your personal information only for you !

Just like you, I don't have a FB account. FB is just not appealing to me since it first came out, until now, and I don't think it will interest me later either. My privacy perhaps is the biggest reason for that.

A big + for this. It's just a lost of time. You don't have nothing to do there, like i have said, it's more pretty nice to discuss here then stay on that site ! Like i have said : BIG RESPECT FOR MARK ! I just don't like that people waste their precious life and time there ....

Well, safety for personal info is a really important issue while it comes to social network such as facebook. Therefore, I tried to be extremely careful for most of the time with what I show on my page. I think I joined facebook quite late when compared with most of my friends and classmates, like two years later and they were qutie surprised when I had my facebook account as I am always not in pace with the high technology. I quite like facebook myself as it helps me to keep my relationship with my friends. I made a very close friend using facebook. The story was like this. Before going to study in the UK, I have found one of the old schoolmates who was studying in the school that I was going to attend. I then tried to see if any of my friends knew her. One of my friends then helped me to contact her and told her that I would like to ask her things about the school in the UK. We then kept in contact and became very close friends even now. I have also tried finding qutie a lot of old friends from facebook who I have lost contact for quite a number of years and we keep in contact again now. Also, when ever I have events, I will make friends with people and we will then be friends on facebook. Therefore, facebook is really a good way for maintaining friendship for me. This might not be for everyone but it works most of the time for me and therefore I love it.

Thanks for reply and for apreciating the part with "personal info ". You have a good point, i'm agree with you that these kind of sites,FaceBook, it's the best for find the old friends. In Russia is a site ondoklasniki, a lot of people use him and only to find their colleges from school, from university. Even the name of the site from russian to english is classmates. Maybe i wil use them when i will be more older then now and i really would need to find a classmate...therfore...i don't need them ! I have all contacts on my phone ( numbers) and on my contact list from Skype and YahooMessenger

I use facebook, mainly because I find that it's a good way to keep in touch with people, and see what they're up to. Personally, I find that it can be a useful tool.

In the past I thought Facebook was a popular social networking. It was good to keep in touch with my friends by Facebook. This is why I joined it. However, later Facebook was banned in my country and therefore we could not access to it by the normal way. I have to access to my Facebook account by a software. But many of my friends don't know how to do it. This is why I am not active in Facebook any more. Now I use it just to finish some online earning tasks. I love China

I use facebook because I like keeping in touch with folks both near and far, and I also like to be a bit of a hermit.. You can hide all your info. I also like facebook because I can hook yup with people I haven't seen in a long, to a very long time.

Facebook it's currently the most popular social network out there. All my friends are on it and it's great way to keep in touch to people easily. I use Facebook to communicate with certain people that I haven't seen in along time like my old classmates, old friends and relatives who lives across the country.

Dear friend, I can briefly explain the reason for which I have accounts on Facebook. Surely because it is the world's number 1 social network that has about 800 million people registered. But this is not just my reason. The time I spend on FB, is really little, I'm going to be quite honest there just to play 2 browser game in which I am writing for about 2 years and they are: "Kingdom of Kamelot" & "MMAPro Fighter". Although I have many friends there, I must say that at least 90% of my time spent in front of the PC, I prefer to dedicate a site like Mylot, plus where we also have the opportunity to earn something. That said I'm sorry to confirm that the day today if you're not on Facebook, do not consider you passionate about internet! And for this I am very sorry!
