I have never had a FB profile, nor one on any other of the so-called "Social Networking" sites. I recognized early on that it was a huge waste of time (saw how people first flocked to My Space, and I stayed away). Wife had a profile of her own on OK.ru (Odnoklassniki, a "Russian Facebook" site) but I forbid her posting any photos of me on there, and I finally convinced her to shut it down completely recently.

I remember when "call waiting" was new for POTS, and how my mom used to rail against it "you can still only talk to one person at a time!" - she was right, of course, and she steadfastly refused to subscribe to it, and would hang up if someone she called told her "just a minute, I've got another call to take". I think this was the beginning of the end (the creation of call waiting) of personal one-on-one time. Things have only gotten worse since then.

I don't even post here a lot, only if I feel I have something to add to the conversation- because I recognize not everyone is interested in what I have to say. Using a platform like FB is IMO the ultimate exercise in narcissistic behavior, it assumes everyone is interested in what you say and do.
