Well, I have been with Facebook for 3 years. At times, when I am tired I never bother to open Facebook or even check it out. Have you ever had a time, when you hate to open facebook and just forget about it entirely? Or even made a decision to totally forget facebook, but you end up going back to it after a few days or weeks? And why?

Well, I try to get on everyday or ever other day though. But yeah I do the same for Facebook email notifications. I think they are just a waste of email space too.

I've been with Facebook for a while now. I check my account everyday. I use it to keep in touch with family and friends, especially those who are in another country. Actually, I have found a few long-long friends through facebook. I use facebook to post announcements so that it gets to reach out a bigger number of people. I guess Facebook has become like an online diary for me. I write on my wall how I feel for the day or what has happened. It's like an avenue to express my emotions, especially if I can't directly say it to the concerned individual. Other posts about events, new, and issues are also helpful to me. I have also bought some items through facebook.

I joined Face Book several years ago but was never there for maybe a whole year, but when I realised that a lot of my old friends were there, I fell in love with it and its format, and have been a constant presence since. I'm not there all that often, maybe once a day for a few minutes, but it's great for posting news, or links, or music. I couldn't evern be bore with Face Book, because I'm never there long enough; but it's great to know that it is there whenever I feel like telling the world about my news, or writings, or music, or whatever.

Facebook gets tiring from time to time, just my opinion.

I never really liked facebook's games or had long chats on facebook. But i haven't decided to forget about it either. I log in from time to time to check what friends are up to and see some pictures and that's what lures me back to using fb. And it's also hard to let it go because you have loads of people you met at one point in your life and you might contact them or they will contact you and you can meet with them. Also it's nice when someone you just met a few hours ago and liked adds you.

Well, I try to get on Facebook everyday, but sometimes I just feel it is too tiring to. So, I end up not going online just even for a day.

I never find facebook fascinating, but not really boring, just useful at times. I tend to go online at that site to know what's happening to some of the very important people in my life who likes to post updates of their status.

Well, I use Facebook to keep up with friends, and some class announcements. That is it. But, sometimes I skip facebook and just relax.

I always don't think there is not much interesting on Facebook besides posting pictures and comments, don't particularly like it like other people does.

Well, I find it funny why people post everything that happens on Facebook.

Sometimes I am boring too with Facebook, but at the end of the day I back to it and Open it. The reason is because everytime I didn't check the facebook, I am afraid my friend send me some important messeges, or I miss some other important information that should I know. That is why I keep always check my facebook.

Well, I get bored so fast with Facebook sometimes. Like when I open the page nothing interesting seems to happen. So I end up closing it.

I signed up Facebook on 13.09.2009 for the first time and honestly I really did enjoy "the social network",because I became too much information about my friends.But one week ago I just decided to Log out because I felt that Fcebook is boring and useless.Every single day I looked at different pictures of my friends and so what?It is like a closed community,where if you go out you are an "outsider" or even more "loser".I shold say that I feel better than before.I have more free time for my real friends,not "the virtual".

Actually not all the time facebook is fun to be in. Sometimes, Facebook causes trouble in our lives. There were times which I would curse facebook because it was sort of making my life harder.

Well, sometimes I prefer Facebook to get to talk with friends. But, MSN, and AIM is still better.
