Not surprised at all, most people I know who uses Facebook says the same thing. It's all about the amount of time you put into Facebook, but some people takes it a little to far.

I use it a lot....gotta admit but I really dont care how many walls I get or what my friend count is. Checking it is another story. Dared myself to stay off for one week and only lasted 2 days. Even when I go on vacation, I thought it be able to last 2 weeks but found a pc within 1 day :/

The most annoying thing about Facebook is, that people lie a lot, every 1 update in 3 in a 100% lie. Thats what dragged me away from it.

What I hate is when people cause controversy on it by posting crazy pics or statuses full of lies to make others look bad

In fact it is a great time killer... most of my friends are addicted and it is way to far... posts like 'I am drinking a tea..., I am going to sleep...' who cares... :) lol

LOL the usual stuff. People want the world to know what they are doing. I am taking a dump in the can.

Facebook is seriously counter productive. People need to get their face out of the internet and into the real world. Maybe then they will achieve something. I know far too many people who just cant get away from keeping up with the gossip. Its pathetic. Focus your time on more meaningful things.
