I admit I have a Facebook, only for talking to a select few people that I can't talk to otherwise....but really the site is overrated and I would rather use MSN or YIM what do you think?

I concur. About the only thing I do is check my mail on there, and occasionally blog. I HATE those stupid games that everyone on there plays now, and I constantly have to delete about 30 "gift" and other crap that people constantly send me on there.

I think it's boring, but instead of MSN or YIM, I just use the good ol' telephone.

Hmm... Boring? I mean, it's just a social networking site... I fail to see how that can be exciting at all anyway. Overrated? Not in my circle of friends. None of us really use it that much, but it's useful to see what people are up to.

I certainly prefer it over MySpace; I just like the UI and way it works more.

Yeah I have one, and it's not all it's cracked up to be, the funny thing is, some people I know tried adding me to their friends list, which I accepted, but they don't even say hi or anything........

I actually like Facebook quite a bit. Though I will admit that if My Zoo wasn't on there, I wouldn't spend nearly as much time on Facebook as I do now.

Well, Facebook is simply another tool that you can use to communicate. As a tool, it is very useful, and in itself is not overrated. While you may think that what it provides feature-wise may be limited, I find there to be enough features to accommodate small communities or communication between me and friends.

I don't really like it, but I always check it anyway in case someone ever decides to contact me. Having said that, I really don't need to log on more than once a month to do that...

Facebook itself is rather lame. The fact that most of my friends use it makes it a rather useful communication tool. So, I say it serves its purpose fairly well, quirks aside.

It's great if you have friends. For the majority of people on these boards it would seem to be "boring".

Well all my friends have it. It's a great way to keep in touch with HS friends in paticular. Also if you go on a trip with some people or something usually a few of them will post photos on Facebook and tag you. I think it's a pretty sweet tool overall, shure it's boring if nobody messaged you but I like to check it frequently to see "whats happening".

I hate the new change. It took me twenty minutes to find how to log-out of the damn thing. On topic, I don't really like Facebook, but I wouldn't call it overrated. It serves it's purpose well, and that's all it needs to do.

Yeah I find it to be pretty boring and a huge step down from MySpace. Facebook is such a bare bones affair that it just seems like a slightly more elaborate Email address with a handful of easy plug-ins to gussy up the sparse little application.

Don't accept applications then :|

joesh89

I don't. I hit ignore, but they just send more. And on top of that half the people don't post anything of meaning. My home page is just littered with people's stupid horoscopes or their farmville progress or what celebrity they look like or what flower they would be. It's all so pointless and trivial.

I dunno, I don't think it's overrated, but I wouldn't be caught sharing some of the stuff a lot of people do on there. Those sites just aren't for me.

I guess I understand, I agree with lord daemon on it being a step down from myspace... god I miss the old myspace.

Just joined a few days ago. The thing that makes it so valuable is simply the sheer amount of people who are on it. The site itself could be improved a great deal.

I think Facebook is a great informational tool. For people who are applying to a given school, it gives them the opportunity to network, gain impressions from others, coordinate roomates, schedule visits, or look at media on the school. It is like a quasi wikipedia.

I made an account recently, cos a friend asked if I would. I don't think I'll use it much tho, not really my kinda thing, I'd rather just use msn tbh.
