Default I only just realised how much I hate Facebook

I originally joined to chat with friends or to hear from friends and family abroad etc, see some updated photo's etc

Now I have loads of people telling me that their kid has had it's first poo, or they ate a chocolate cake tonight which was yummy, they got pissed on Champagne, their boyfriend farted in the bath, they changed a nappy on the train today, they did 2 hours in the gym & ache or some bird telling me she is having a cup of tea with two sugars before watching Desperate Housewives!!

Who gives a monkeys chuff !

Although it is reassuring to know that others' lives are just as mundane as ours!

Seriously though - I love Facebook. I think it's one of the best things about the technological age.

You should embrace technology...Well, all said and done, you should embrace your woman too...

Default Re: I only just realised how much I hate Facebook

I love Facebook - I'm not sure what I would do without it now. When there was the rumour about Dubai banning it, I nearly had a breakdown!

By the way, you can filter news out, so you can hear less about the boring people and more about the interesting people or let's say the ones you want to keep an eye on... Are you bored of all my skiing updates? A friend told my OH the other day that my constantly updated status with little youtube links etc is driving him crazy!

For those of us with an interest in football - try the Footy Shirt quiz on Facebook. Not as easy as it looks.

As sad as it is, I just tend to do the quizzes on there.

BTW,now on Season 4 of Desperate Housewives.

You don't have to use FB you silly whinger!

If you have dull friends that is just a reflection on you....
