Facebook Issues

OK. I don't know if I am the only one that feels this way but daily I debate about the pros and cons of facebook. I love the fact that I have caught up with friends I haven't talked to in awhile but I also have some "friends" that I wish I could un-friend without hurting any feelings. So here are my thoughts about facebook.

Am I a wierdo because I don't say any inspiring quotes on my status? I have to admit I don't even know any cool quotes off the top of my head and I don't think I would have the time to look one up. I don't even understand other people's quotes half the time!

I feel like a secret stalker. I know people only put up information they want people to see but sometimes it is a little wierd. My Mom will call me and say, "What's new on people from facebook". And I update her on family, etc. Does that make me a gossip? Nope, a secret stalker.

Darn my brother for getting me started in Mafia Wars. Every few days I do jobs, get FAKE money, and rule New York. I am obsessed with getting more money. My brain knows it is fake money but for some reason I still enjoy seeing those dollers increase. Maybe it is because I have no REAL money.

I have learned that the "LIKE" button is like the easy button. If I don't have anything cool to say, I push LIKE. Easy as pie!

I can have tons of cool things happen to me throughout the day but once I sit down to write a status my mind goes blank. Someday it will come together.

I have realized that the constant to facebook is that they are always going to change things and I am always not going to like how they change it. I just wish I could see people's status comments and not every live news feed happening on everyone's page. Again, maybe this is a test of patience for me.

Yes, I admit it. I have looked up an old boyfriend, classmate, etc. just to see how they are doing but never added them as a friend. Refer to the secret stalker comment above.

So, I continue to use facebook. Does anyone else feel this way? Have a great day!

Yes, as a matter of fact, I think I have agreed with every point you have made! It is soooooo sad. My friend got me on there and now I have ran into so many friends and I get so excited but then I have people I would also love to "unfriend" but it will cause so many hurt feelings and problems! I have looked up people and "checked up" on them too.
My status quotes always manage to be misinterpreted on a daily basis and then my mom will call and tell me about it.
Since I live in a very rural area and the branch here consists of low numbers LDS friends are few and far between so FB has become my social for the day...sad huh??? I guess for me it one of those necessary evils as I try to survive my Mormon girl in the Midwest experience! ; )

Lol, Oh I loved this post. You are so funny! I think we've all felt that way at one point or another. In fact, I just looked up an old prom date tonight and added him as a friend just so I could see his pictures! We all do it though, so that makes it ok, right? ;)
