Lately I have been considering the pro's and con's of being on Facebook. On one hand it is great to keep up with family. I actually hear the news before my Grandma gets a chance to pass it along. On the other hand, do I really need to read that someone is "Tired".
At one point, I was addicted. I would check FB constantly and spend an hour checking status updates. Now I check in maybe once a week and I usually only post while I am sitting in the parking lot waiting for my son to come out of school.
One thing that really irritates me about Facebook is the drama associated with removing someone from your friend list. It reminds me of high school. So what if I don't want to be your friend anymore on FB. You either ticked me off, your post's bothered the crap out of me, or I just don't give a damn. If you obsess over why you aren't my friend on Facebook you probably have much bigger things to worry about like why you need to be liked by every Tom, Dick, and Harry on FB.
I suppose I will continue to stay on Facebook due to the friend and family connection but I'll keep it limited. I have more productive things to do...like reading blog postings.
