The Facebook Conundrum

I have love/hate relationship with Facebook and I don’t ever see that changing.

I like what Facebook sometimes is, and what it can be. I love that I get to connect with friends from high school and see what they are up to these days.

I really like that I get to decide who I’m friends with, and who can view my stuff.

But, there’s some things that I don’t love about Facebook.

I don’t love that I’m unable to view the most recent updates, rather Facebook hijacks my account and always insists on showing the news feed.

I’m guessing this has something to do with metrics and actions that they think I’ll take. What I really want to do is my what I want, not what they think I want.

Aside from the nuances that drive me crazy, what I dislike most about the existence of Facebook is that I feel the need to have it.

Like I’ll be missing out on something if I don’t.

The pain of having Facebook is easier to bear than the pain of not having it.

    I couldn’t agree more Brian!

    My feelings towards FB are identical to yours and I deleted about 70% of my “friends” on there.

    Everytime I log in to FB I want to delete my account for good, but I have a Facebook page which I really don’t want to lose.
