After numerous automated emails of people nagging me to join FB, I finally joined the dark side in Oct 2007. I was never one for adding randoms. Just had family on it, and a growing list of old classmates. I therefore used it more-or-less like Friends Reunited. When I touched based with them, I tend to write long life stories of what happened after school etc, like I'm writing an email but using Facebook's PM system. If I got replies off people, the message was normally very short. They seemed to be more interested in reading status updates (which can be several times a day), or "poking" each other. What's the point in all of that? Then there's that Farmville that now seems to be a household name even more so than WoW. Hell, if I want to play a computer game, I buy something that puts my ATI HD4850 to good use. The final straw for Facebook was applying for a job a few months back. The advert instructed me to send them a covering letter + CV. So I did, and if they touch base with me, it would normally be in the form of a phonecall or email, wouldn't you say? Nope, not with these guys. They decided that they wanted to add me as a friend on Facebook. No prior communication, no nothing, straight to Facebook they go. Plus, isn't it LinkedIn that businesses tend to use? So anyway, I didn't accept the request, left my FB page dormant for a few weeks and then I cancelled my account. I saw no point. I find that email is more central to me. That's how it's been since 1999 for me, and will continue to be. And no, I'm not behind the times, as I do have push email on my phone Who's with me there?
