    I can't buy into anything that advertises itself as "not the other guy". Provide a good service at a good price and you'll get the customers you want. Don't tell me what you aren't, tell me what you are.

    also, does anybody remember google+? It had a massive user base from its search and couldn't convert users.

    the only thing it has going for it as that it hasn't been ruined by all of our parents yet.

    I applied too. I just want to see the layout and the site itself.

    For not being facebook, it's already being like facebook by being invite only. At one time, fb was difficult to get into and you could only go to a few specific colleges.

    I got in FB when it first came out through my school my freshman year. It was very awesome at first, especially when living in the dorms you could find out where people lives, who knew who, etc. It was a huge distraction though. Probably cost me some A's that turned into B's.


    Once they opened it to everyone it sucked. I still use it for judging people and keeping in touch with certain folks. Otherwise, I rarely put anything on it.

    This. I had a friend from high school who had 7 kids in the 10 years after graduation. FB is basically for making fun of people who "were the cool kids" and now they are just shitbags.

    surely i cant be the only person that is completely tired of things starting off invite only.
    i understand some of the reasoning for a slow roll out, but still, shits annoying.

    My FB is on the verge of gettin shut the fuck down. I got it to stay in touch with friends. Then I realized I dont need the internet to stay in touch with friends that are worth having. And that the people I used it to stay in touch with turned out to be worthless shit bags.

    I just use it to keep up with racing news and show off my work now lol.

    I shut down my facebook December 26, 2013. The only thing I've missed is 1 fantasy football party. And the commissioner in that league has my phone number. Still holds it against me. lol But everything else without it has made my life much more enjoyable. Facebook actually used to make me feel shitty. I'm glad it's gone. At least with myspace I would get laid once in a while. Facebook was just drama.

    fb these days is mostly 'look at my kid doing something that I think is cute but it's really disgusting to see a kid full of smooshed food all over his face' , the occasional event invite, but otherwise, it's easy for picture sharing of stuff that 'i think is cool and other people are probably like wtf'

    why do you say that? I use it mostly for posting pics of my kids so relatives can see them. I don't get everyones hate with kids on FB feeds. Do people really not like kids that much? I guess actually being a parent changes your perspective in that matter.. I just can't relate...
