Amen to that.

I love the Flixster application. I can waste hours on that thing.

There's a reason it was originally only open to college students.

Right now, it's a classier MySpace.

Truly a good compliment.

Looking at other people's profiles pages, however, I do see a LOT of clutter on some of them. That's a little annoying, but still miles ahead of the annoyance of MySpace.

^ Some people's pages are so cluttered, and have so many applications, that it takes forever to find the Wall. That is incredibly annoying and frustrating sometimes.

Another annoyance is people who have more friends than they need. Seriously, do you really need to have 400 friends on your list? I've seen some that have been close to 900! I bet they don't even know 10% of those people. It's like high school all over again, where your social status and popularity is determined not by the person you are, but who your friends are and the number of friends you have. All very juvenile, in my opinion.

I have made it a policy to only have people that I've interacted in real life on my list, which means my number is relatively low in comparison to some people. No online or so-called "Facebook friends."

facebook has turned to crap. i don't get the applications. i mean they are unique and some are fun, but there's too many of them! i don't know how anyone can keep up with more than 5 apps on their page!

i actually seriously limited my facebook use in grad school. i learned that it was the more popular among college students, and in my field i was supposed to maintain this "professional" facade.

i do like leaving pictures and videos for my friends. can't really do that in facebook. but i do like that facebook profiles don't make my computer freeze.

Yeah, that's been my biggest beef with myspace: the bullshit.

The only thing that pisses me off about Facebook is the applications like "Jetman" or "Zombies vs. Vampires." When someone invites me to those things (which happens about five times a day), I'm just like, "What the fuck, dude? I don't care."
Yeah. When I first joined Facebook (which wasn't even until this spring) there were like no applications. Then like two weeks later about 50 billion popped up out of seemingly nowhere

I did add Pirates vs. Ninjas since pirates are badasses, but it was originally just a picture and your rank went up for recruiting people. That's it. Now they added some battle aspect and I get attacked by pansy-ass ninjas every two minutes. How irritating. Bitches ain't shit. I may delete it.

I also love all the music apps...eventually Facebook will hopefully equal Myspace in music, cuz right now thaat's the one thing Myspace has over Facebook and it's the only reason I still even have a profile at all. But I think Facebook is trying to add music profiles, yeah? I love me some iLike. I have like 18,000 points on that dumb game.

but yeah, besides the music apps and a couple other cool ones, I'm sick of all these fucking applications. I mean, fortune cookie? horoscope? those dumb quotes applications? stupid shit like Hot or Not? fuuuck all that. and I don't like the SuperWall or FunWall or any of that either. I don't want to have to scroll through 290488597 things just to get to the wall where I want to write some small comment.

But it's still better than myspace.

Oh yeah, and my least favourite application: the mood one. What the hell do you think the status bar is for, you morons?

also having like 50 top friends kinda defeats the purpose of top friends. I'm on the top friends list of some people I haven't really talked to since high school. I think some of them just added like everyone in our senior class to their top friends

I have only a few apps: the iLike, the Quizzes, and Compare People, and the only one on my page is iLike.

I love the Movies app, it's the bomb. Compare People and Superlatives are fun, too.

I barely use facebook for much of anything anymore other than trying to come up with clever status statements and moderating a group I created. I've been thinking about getting rid of my account for ages now.. one of these days.. I suppose I'll probably do it!

Those of you who've got Facebook, there's a group on there called "Facebook Interference" that a few of us are in.
