I don't have facebook or twitter. I have g+ because it comes with gmail, but don't post in there. I check it every now and then, but wouldn't notice if it were to disappear.

They try to trick you into doing it. They still pester me.
I just enlarged a system disk in an old desktop. It had just gotten too full. I i installed XP Home on it and when I tried to validate it, MS said I had received an illegal copy, but it would only be $147 to get the wonderful new W7. I looked (on a large screen) and there were no other options, then I thought a minute and paged way down and found 2 small sentences. I followed them and the machine was validated in about 10 seconds.
No, Not, Non, Nein, Nyet, and all the rest too!
I have a presence on Facebook but not in my name and with no information, just so I can look there occasionally.
Don't go near twitter, or Flickr, and the others.
I am on Linkedin though. Business reasons.

They changed the way you receive news at Facebook about a year ago so that you get the news from the most active. The trouble is the most active are the people who are usually talking crap. So every day I'd check it out and find that the neighbour up the road hated the raisins in her chocolate bar or the colour of her latest mail order thingamy.
I culled all my "friends" and just have a couple of relatives now who will probably unfriend me for being too boring.

I only post major life events on facebook. I dont have a twitter. Facebook only gets used now for logging into services like susestudio and others.

I'm resurrecting this old thread to ask if anyone's seen this request in Announcements? MobileRead is looking for someone to help out with fielding questions from Facebook users.
Love Facebook and Mobileread? We need you!
