I am on Linked In and have over 200 contacts.

On Stumbler, I have over 200 friends and add about 5 a day when I want to.

I have  less than 50 - - contacts on Facebook.

What's up with that and what does that have to do with Needing Money?

Facebook has replaced
MySpace as the hottest social network in the universe. Nope, I don't have numbers to back that statement up, but I think it is true.

A friend came over for dinner a few weeks ago and he told me 1% of all people on earth have a facebook account. I wonder if some of those people in countries outside of the United States even know what a "facebook" is?

Anyway, some people who do
internet marketing swear by Facebook. They claim they can make all kinds of money somehow or another using Facebook. I read a long post from some guy who wrote all about using flyers and getting 5% click thru and a bunch of other things. Then he said that his money making only worked a few times before his account was deleted. Fun.

Here is why Facebook is for LOSERS and it has nothing to do with making money. (I am just tired of hearing about Facebook and why it is soooo neat.).


1) Facebook specializes in bringing people together with their former classmates

I hated high school, so why would I be interested in seeing what "nobody I was ever friends" with is doing now? Most of the people on Facebook look like losers now, so what is the point?

Further, I think I am still friends with one person from college. Again, why in the world would I want to dig around on Facebook and see what people from college, whom I was never friends with, are up to now?

And this is a very interesting fact : just check out your friends list and u will find so many people who were ur classmates and u were never friends with them when u were classmates but now they are in ur friends list just hanging on the wall without any interaction with u ? whats the use????

2) Facebook's interface sucks

Why?

If I join MyBlogLog or LinkedIn, I can find all kinds of people and websites from the "get go". I don't have to join, I can just start searching.

Go to Facebook.com. "Its Free, anyone can join". Nothing else to see. Yes, you can go to the Find Friends and search by a topic or even drill through names, but that's it. You can see a picture, but if you want to know anything else, you have to join.

To compare, go to Linkedin. Go to the bottom of the page. Enter in a name and bingo, you have the full profile of the person you are looking for, even if you are not a member or logged in.

3) The Wall

Who gives a rat's butt what you are doing today or this minute? People write the dumbest things like "I am using the bathroom" or "just changed the baby's diaper".

Now think about it. What kind of person finishes an activity and quickly runs to their
computer and puts a post on their Wall? L-O-S-E-R, that's who.

4) Facebook is a time waster.

A friend revealed to me today, she spends 1-2 hours A DAY on facebook. Some of it is spent looking up old friends (losers from high school). But most of her time is spent trying to sound more interesting than the other people on her friends list.

So she makes up stuff to put on her wall like, "just finished reading Obamas book" or "Tutoring the baby in French while listening to Mozart". And she it not alone. I read lots of nonsense like this on people's walls like "working on my spiritual drumming", "finding my inner self", etc...

Its all made up. Losers just post what ever they think their little group of friends will believe that day.

Um, I think it would be a better waste of time to eat bon-bons and watch soap operas all day.

5) Everybody lies on Facebook

If you are divorced, you are "suddenly single!"
If you are out of work, you are "starting your own business!".
If you live at home, you are "homesick and visiting your parents!".
If you are not married, you are "single and loving it!"

Everybody has a great life on Facebook. What a place for losers.

6) Why would I want to network with my sister, co-workers or customers in the same place?

Facebook is for everyone! Which means my family is on facebook along with one or two of my coworkers, someone from another company I really want to work for, a few of my customers, ten losers from my high school, a lady from church, the next door neighbor and the guy I play golf with.

Do I really want all of those people to potentially know each other through me? Talk about the walls between your world coming down.

That sounds like the beginning of a nuclear network meltdown. Divorce, shootings, home invasions, ughh.

7) Facebook is full of middle aged people trying to hook up with that guy or girl from high school that for some reason, they think has frozen in time and still looks like they did when they were 17.

Nothing screams loser like that.

8) Facebook is the MySpace of 2010

Just wait. In a few months you will be getting friend requests from some girl named "Jazmin" and a guy name "Pimp-O-Dellic" neither of whom you know.

Then there will be sparkly, bling a bling  wallpapers for Facebook.

Finally, the last straw will be when ten people named Odinga from Nigeria want to friend you and tell you about the $10M you have in their bank that they need your help getting out of the country.

9) Your Facebook membership serves only to make the owners rich with your self absorbed content. You get nothing for your work.
There is no revenue share for your content, your life, your posts. They put ads on your profile and bank the payback. You get nada, loser.
There is no linkback, SEO benefit, no way to build something better and money making outside of Facebook.
Nobody is going to hire someone from Facebook. "Hey check out my wall. I need a job, man".
Try LinkedIn, The Ladders, heck Monster. At least that is where employers might look.

10) 10 years from now, you will be embarrassed about all the stuff you put on Facebook.

But because it is the internet, it will be there forever..

You can throw the diary away from grade school.

You can burn your yearbooks.

You can pretend you never dated that guy with the Camaro your junior year.

Facebook lives forever. With all of your Wall posts, friends, everything.

Now you understand why Facebook is for losers?

What if you're an artist and post things like "Just finished a painting" or posting your daily morning warm up sketch/doodle... or talking about you feel you need a break because you're having a hard time getting the colors right or something and feel frustrated. Does that make you a loser? If you're posting about something you're actually doing? Does it make you a loser if other artists are sharing experiences with each other... commenting with tips or just "great work!" or motivational stuff like "Don't give up!"

Not everybody who uses Facebook as a social outlet is a loser.

Anonymous said...

I am an artist. I use Facebook to connect with other artists around the world. We post our work and comment on other artists work. We share tips or offer words of encouragement. And sometimes we just chat about whatever is on our minds e.g. something that's happening on the news or linking to a youtube video of a song that we like to listen to while we are drawing or painting. I think this type of interaction is a positive thing, not something for losers. Its nice to be able to follow what each other is working on... especially with artists who share pictures of their work in phases as it is being done... for example, posting initial sketches of ideas for paintings before doing the actual painting... showing the painting in stages. We all learn from this. Not everybody is posting about mundane things or stalking each other because we have nothing else to do. For some of us, Facebook is a great place to connect with each other. I also keep up with personal family and friends in addition to socializing with other artists.

Anonymous said...

This hit the nail right on the head.
But the one point you missed can be directed to all the comments that criticize your "bitterness," as well as the notion that "if you don't like the channel, change the station."
The biggest problem with Facebook is all these types of people who assume that anyone who doesn't like Facebook, doesn't update their profile every day, or doesn't have a profile at all, must be some kind of antisocial hermit.
Believe it or not, social lives CAN exist outside of Facebook. Facebook isn't inherently bad, but the cult of mindless social networking it has created most certainly is.

Facebook is for idiots, it's a fact

PartTimeOptimist said...

This article is spot on.

Among the many groups of people who are proud of being early-adopters or unpaid promoters of a new technology or social phenomena, no group has become so large or engaged as facebook users. They are even more involved than the hyper-conformist apple cult. Facebook has done a better job than any competitor at playing on its users' social needs and desires and manipulating their egos. Although apple might turn a profit, it provides only coolness and a relatively high-quality product. Facebook provides so much more: the chance to create a filtered identity, accumulate a high number of acquanitances with minimal effort, it is the ultimate unassuming dating site, it is a window into the filtered and often unfilitered lives of the shameless, all adding up to endless hours of futuristic socialization.

If we assume for a moment there is nothing wrong with using facebook, we must at least ask what is the opportunity cost? Is facebook to socializing not like TV is to activities? Didn't our mothers rightly tell us we should spend more time outside?

Here is another article about how facebook may not only have peaked, but why it is for losers:

I do have a Facebook account but stopped making statuses because it's stupid. Everyone posts stupid things, they are so dumb and think everyone cares and they want attention bad. Facebook makes me sick now, hearing about people's addictions on there is so sad. I admit when I am bored, I'll use it to stalk people and find clues as to where people are so they can get bashed that's about it.

I had a FB account, I used it for a while, was really into it for a couple of months, grew tired of it REAL fast. No longer have the desire to go to it. Great article especially the part referencing your friends who were never your friends in high school hanging on your wall with no interaction with you at all.

I hate Facebook. As soon as I got a message from a jerk I knew in high-school and then saw a list of people we might have in common. (kill me now) and then saw pictures of a friend of mine having taken a Picture with her "real friends" standing in front of the friction Eiffel Tower...I deleted my account sooo fast it would make your head spin.

What a complete nobhead 'I hated high school' and 'I still have one friend from college'. Clearly you are the loses because this goes to show that you didn't have many friends. Also you said something about (paraphrasing) not knowing people and just adding them and not speaking to them again. Fair enough those people are losers but I have an account and I do not do that; I still have quite a large circle of friends, not in the regions of hundreds lol but chill out man/woman (whoever you are?) don't generalise everyone that uses facebook because not everyone is the same. I could go on forever but, clearly I have a life so I just adressed your main points, defending others and myself in the process; talk about two birds with one stone.

Every dark cloud has a silver lining. Same can be said of Facebook.
FB allows me to identify who is very insecure and desperate for attention. Some of these people act normal enough in real life. But they reveal themselves on FB with their silly status updates.
Not all use FB like this obviously. I certainly dont. I try to use it to spread knowledge with some jokes thrown in now and then. No updates about what i ate for breakfast and where i am going to have lunch.

Maybe for some, like businesses but really...I just don't get it.. and I'm the total outcast for not having an account.. like WTF

Kimmiesm said...

I could honestly see how Facebook could be used as a positive and constructive thing in one's life. When it becomes a negative is when someone is on there using it as a substitute for real life social contact, especially if it is a person who may be depressed or have some type of social anxiety, it only further exacerbates their problem.
If someone is using it, like a commenter above mentioned, as in sharing their art with others around the world, or someone who has started a world wide online group to discuss a similar interest, then it could definitely be a positive.
I can also see how it can become an addiction, just like anything else. I, myself, found that I was feeling a certain pull of addiction from it. As soon as I recognized this and realized that it was actually stealing a lot the time I could have been using to be more productive.

You all are a bunch of fucknuts. You missed the point of the article!

People who only are on it to boast and make themselves seem interesting are the people this article seems to be pointed toward. Not real uses like as stated "An artist connecting with other artists" <- That's Great! otherwise... you're a waste of an organism that has failed to fit in society and you add all the "cool" people just to boast with them about how "you think you're so cool".

All a bunch of insecure small minded people. I'm prepared to read all the butthurt users comments ;]

I totally agree with you, and am proud to say that I closed my FB account a few weeks ago. It was actually a little hard, since I was so addicted to filling empty moments with FB stalking of people who don't mean a damn thing to my life. I actually feel better about myself now that I'm not constantly reading posts about everyone else's fabulous (mainly embellished) lives. The less time I spend on the computer, the more I end up getting done in my real life--not the one I used to make up to impress my 250 "friends."

I agree to say facebook is so full of crap. Although, there are some advantages to facebook, like contacting a distant relative, facebook still remains unworthy. It’s not worth to replace a real face to face interaction with a virtual one. I think there is a lot going on, which we don’t know. People should be on their watch about facebook, because there is definitely “more than meets the eye” when it comes to social networks, in general. Facebook is perfect for narcissistic people and those who love to show off. It gives you a feel of what it’s like to be a celebrity. Now obviously not everyone using social networks have those intentions and desires, but mostly the younger generation of people. For a lot, facebook is a way to compensate for the lack of actual real human interaction. The elite have created computers and machines… so obviously everything else that comes along, including facebook. One has to at least try to wonder why is it they would want to create such a thing. Perhaps because the elite class wants to know how many people are gullible, influenceable and sheep-like. It might also be an experiment to know if peer-pressure works to encourage people to do anything. They can see that, if members are continuously adding to the network. In addition to using computer to check e-mails, search information and so on, facebook is now another “good” reason to open the computer and log in. This is excellent if one wants to damage their nervous system, their eyes and well, the whole body in general. Why is that? Because the computer emits electromagnetic waves that is dangerous for us. So, the more we use machines, the worst is our health. In all, facebook is shit and stupid.

This is so true. I too closed down my fb account a few weeks ago and like others on here I feel immensely better for it. FB is just a complete and utter waste of time. It's a breeding ground for desperate people who will do anything to appear popular and interesting. Aside from the cryptic status updates (used to try and draw bites),bragging and the overt narcissism the thing that was the deciding point in leaving for me was seeing endless wall posts in my news feed encouraging support for animal rights and true friendship. All this from a person who I know has left several of their pets to suffer needlessly and is incredibly selfish in so many ways with no real friends in reality...so incredibly Fake...yuk!

This article is 100% accurate...I can't stand the site and how I'm the only one out of roughly 15 friends, that I still talk to, that doesn't have it, and out of the 15 I'd say 12 hassle me for not having it. Who cares really it's a waste of time...people just sign up for it because they either are insecure, actually don't have friends, or their life is extremely boring...forget facebook, linkedin all the way.

I dont know what else i can add to your post regarding facebook, i opened an account in about 2009 for a few months, it was totally pathetic, people you work with were writing posts similar to the one about "teaching the baby french, whilst listening to mozart", and while facebook would have its advertising use and links to like minded individuals, however the wall is just so lame, i feel like banging my head against it, i still see people in work adding posts on the wall, "at work, crap day - would rather be in pub drinking beer"
what the f*** i just want to slap those people,
give them a blindfold, make them stand next to the wall where they put their post, and shoot them.

yes facebook is so lame,
i had an account in 2009 but just felt like giving up life due to the mind numbing posts that people did on the wall, people i worked with , and still do, they still sit around on their mobiles, writing trash like "at work, having a sh** day, wish i was in the pub"
what the f**k, i feel like slapping them,
why dont we give them a blindfold, line them up against the wall where they put their post, and shoot them.

Facebook sums up everything wrong with this generation. It's basically a place for people to present a false-image of themselves in order to impress their contacts; everything from your number of friends, your job, holidays, relationships... it's a site for FAKE people. Interestingly it seems to be far more popular with females, probably for these reasons. Every girl I know spends hours on facebook, they get a huge amount of attention on there that they don't get in real life and I think they are addicted to the attention.

Needless to say, I don't use it and I couldn't have a relationship with a girl pathetic enough to be on there.

I have it as instead of wasting money texting, you can just chat on facebook. Also it is a great way for organising events like partys or sports competitions.

Agreed. Losers and secretive dodgy liars. I trialled Facebook for a couple of months - just to realise the above article to be quite true. Real friends are people who you can talk to and spend time with. What makes me laugh is that these people that you barely know get labelled as "Friends" - they are barely acquaintances! After only being on the timewasting network for a short while - then discovered that my boyfriend was sending secret messages to his EX, when she had been nothing but a total bitch to us. But he lied to my face while doing it! She had gotten one of her "friends" to post some nasty lies very publically on his profile. Where MY family saw.
I think Facebook is a GREAT tool for tools - and people without a real life, or actual living friends - it is also great for dodgy secretive liars who want a second life in fantasy land that would hurt/kill their loved ones if they knew they were doing it. The amount of people I have heard of who have more than one profile under different names astounds me. Or those people who want to cause trouble and set up fake profiles pretending to be someone else!(So the 1% of the worlds population having Facebook is false in itself, as how many profiles are actually real?)
I choose LIFE. I prefer to socialise, laugh and share my life with actual REAL people - and simply email my actual friends with a catch up every now and then with what I have been up to, if I can't speak to them in person. When I am not working the last thing I want is to be glued to a screen.
What prompted me to find this blog - was I met a new potential friend the other night - and she said "look me up on Facebook". I told her that I refuse to have anything to do it and she went all funny. She said that is how she lives her entire life, and basically didn't want anything more to do with me, unless I contacted her on Facebook. OMG! Loser, much?! Such a shame, as we had so much fun that night! Never heard anything so ridiculous... so that is one non-friend there (her choice) just because I won't sit in front of a bloody computer to ANTI-socialise). Anyway, after my assistant today asking me if I had seen something on Facebook to do with the Olympics - I decided to do a bit of searching to see if there were any other people out there who had had enough of this life sucking ANTI-social network. And look what I found!! And guess what - I have just done exactly what looser Facebook users do - and have just wasted my lunch break IN FRONT OF A BLOODY SCREEN!!! However, it has made me feel a bit better that the world has not all gone completely mad! There are some sane people out there who remember actual living, breathing flesh!
Poor kids today have no idea on how to communicate, socialise or express themselves properly - they have relationships with screens!! (TV, Computer, Cellphones, Ipads)... The Matrix movie (Keanu Reeves) maybe is more close and possible than we think... soon we will be born and be plugged in immediately to a screen and we will never know what outside feels like, apart from the pseudo life we have transmitted to our subconscious while we lay in a pod. Such a sad world that we "live" in...

Just looking at your Live Traffic Feed... Lots of people are viewing this. Can only imagine it is because they are also wanting to know that they aren't the only ones who think Face book is for losers. And the times they are looking isn't from months ago - since I have been on here, there have been 9 others looking! People are realising that Facebook is a have, and that it is NOT a NORMAL way of LIFE!

Always thought it was arrogant of folks putting their lives on fb, like the world is just sitting around waiting for this fabulous information.

ALL social network is lame and childish. Take a close look at what you are doing. Face down, starring at a computer screen and typing shit in. Go out and see the sun and say hi to someone you don't know. Hey, here is an idea, live off the computer for once. loosers

I hate when i go out with friends and you always get one on their phone checking fb updates etc.he looks like a proper loser, i mean whilst im chatting to people having a drink and socializing, someone you are supposedly socializing with is on fb socializing all night. i dont get it is the real world that scary for people or have they forgot how to have a real life talk and a good time.i think all social networking is bad and will not partake in any of it.the people i want to have in my life are there already and if they dont want to spend a buck to phone me and catch up then f$%k them they arent a real friend neither in this world or fb world.

Facebook really sucks. A lot of people are wasting working time on Facebook. People with no Facebook work harder than people who have Facebook.

I am reading this post and it is exactly how I think. Facebook is nothing but a bunch of losers in a circle jerk.

For instance, a fat slob woman will post "At gym working hard"
(Inreality she is sitting on a machine staring at others workout) ....her LOSER friends will say "Great, looking good" (this is so that way the slob will reciprocate when they post a bunch of lies later on their profiles. They expect the same "pat on the back" response. This is the basis and beginning for their creation of a fake life on facebook.

Its completely pathetic how they interact and ost status updates for everything.Its even worse when you see idiots taking pictures with their phones at a restaurant of their food (you know its going on their facebook)....why cant they just sit the fuck down and eat like a normal human.

Facebook has its success due to mostly everyone wanting to be an attention whore,but because they are losers in life with no accomplishments they arent given praise in the real world, so they form a kind of sub culture on Facebook where the LOSERS ban together and praise each other all day. Any real life successful person who points this out will be called "angry, bitter, resentful, mad" etc. The fact is its the truth and this post tells it like it is and so does my comment.

Dont get mad losers because we are pullingthe sheets from your pathetic lives and uncovering the truth.

one of the main things that pisses me off is how facebook/social networking has extended into life beyond the computer. Gone are the days of going out to parties, getting messy and just acting crazy without care.

Now the facebook papperazzi is everywhere, people are nervous about letting loose for fear of ridicule on the mighty facebook court. you cant dance for 2 minutes without someone pulling their camera out, everyone stops to pose.. idiot cant use the camera properly "oh wait use mine" gotta wait another few minutes. at this stage I just couldnt give a fuck.

Its a good point you made about sad people using facebook to make themselves look smart. its not just confined to facebook but most internet forums, blogs etc. do you think bill gates or zuckerberg are trolling the net late at night. arguing at lenght with nobodies on the economy or some grand psychological theories. dont think so.

the net is fooling us into believing we are smarter than what we actually are and that we are somehow getting ahead in life by learning the opinions of yet again more nobodies.

same goes for me posting this comment.. like WTF, I've wasted time typing it and what will I get in return, nothing but a false sense of satisfaction or illusion that somebody actually cares what I got to say. its bullshit. 90% of everything on the internet is just crap. and i've wasted several years of life trying to figuire it out.

I'm going fishing. (with no cameras or twitter updates)

Yes, Facebook is a wagon-load of crappola. Its for people desperate for attention-look at me, listen to me although both looking at and listening to them is likely to be something that is neither interesting (except to them) nor informational in any compelling way.

I have found that someone having over 500 "friends" or so on Facebook regular translates to someone who is likely an anti-social, shallow loser who has very few true friends in life.

And to those that say it helps them stay connected to family members, get a clue. Call those loved ones on the phone, or better yet, pay them a visit if you really give a damn about them.

Also, your conversation with another human on Facebook becomes EVERYONE'S business. And most people like me don't give a crap about your day at work or your vacation. Instead, we are waiting for you to oblige in offering a pathetic, self-destructive train wreck of a post and/or accompanying picture.

I am going to keep this short. Facebook is a waste of time. How many of your Facebook friends do you see every day or every month. How many of your Facebook friends are real.


To the artist who catches up with other artist on Facebook, I don't mean to be negative but have you met any of these people face to face.


As far as you know their works of art are more likely not their own.

Haha!! That's (the article) hilarious!! And mostly true. A few months ago the memory of a very hot girl in high school came to mind so I decided to look her up on Facebook. To my delight she was there and in her profile shot were three people. Her, her mom and her dad. I was amazed at how good she looked. And I thought - I knew she would still look good. Then there was her old lady fat mom and her fat bald dad.

Then as I looked a little closer, it slowly began to dawn on me that the old fat lady was actually the girl from high school!!! And the girl I thought "still" looked good was her DAUGHTER!!! Who looked just like she did in high school.

And yep, with that, it was like - so much for facebook!

By the way though if you had facebook, you could post this on it and lots of people would see it!

Just sacked someone for stealing from our company. What were they stealing and how? Instead of working they were on Facebook 5 hours a day. They claimed to be working and was getting paid for those hours. Now they have been found out to be a thief and a liar they are jobless, and will not be getting a good recommendation from me. Now that shows you that Facebook is for LOSERS!

tenia facebook y lo elimine, es tan superficial, personas que aparentan felicidad y perfeccion en sus vidas, cuando en realidad es todo mentira... muchos transmiten algo que no son y las estupideces que suben y escriben...uff que bueno que ya lo elimine y me di cuenta de que era una perdida de tiempo, en lugar de hacer cosas que realmente valen la pena gastaba mi tiempo en estupideces... me dan pena esas personas que te piden que le des like a lo que publican, LAMENTABLE, por suerte nunca fui asi!!! lastimosamente son personas que viven de likes, tienen una vida virtual perfecta, algo que no se da en todos los casos en la vida real de muchos
