Cén fáth nach maith liom Facebook

Is minic a chuala an duine agaibh a chonaic mé ag labhairt liom ag labhairt amach i gcoinne Facebook. Tá mé ar Facebook, bím rannpháirteach ar Facebook… ach ní maith liom é. Tá roinnt mhaith rudaí nach dtaitníonn liom ar Facebook:

  1. Ní dhéanann an loingseoireacht aon chiall dom. Tá biachláir, taobhchláir, nascleanúint le feiceáil ... Táim caillte agus ní chreidim go bhfuil sé iomasach ar chor ar bith.
  2. Déanaim magadh nach bhfuil i Facebook ach AOL 10.0. Is córas dúnta é ... ba mhaith leis féin gach rud agus níl sé ag iarraidh ort imeacht. Tá suíomhanna iontacha ar fud an idirlín, scor ag súil go ndéanfaidh mé gach rud ansin!
  3. Níl aon roghanna ann maidir le pearsanú. Táim tuirseach de Facebook gorm (# 3B5998). Lig dom stílbhileog a chur ar mo leathanach agus é a shaincheapadh!
  4. Is éard atá i naisc urraithe ná soláthar gan deireadh de “Singles”… Moms Aonair, Críostaithe Aonair, Singles… LEAVE ME ALONE! Chliceáil mé X céad uair, faigh an pointe!
  5. Teipfidh ar Facebook (sea, a dúirt mé é!) Mura féidir leis laige uilíoch amháin a cheartú, áfach. Caitear an chuid is mó de mo chuid ama ar Facebook ag bainistiú Facebook... gan é a úsáid. Caithfidh mé neamhaird a dhéanamh ar aipeanna, neamhaird a dhéanamh ar chuirí, neamhaird a dhéanamh ar imeachtaí, neamhaird a dhéanamh ar iarratais ó chairde, neamhaird a dhéanamh ar chúiseanna, neamhaird a dhéanamh de bheith i mo lucht leanúna, agus neamhaird a dhéanamh ar fhógraí. Ní spraoi é ... tá sé cráite.

Is é an creat iarratais víreasach laistigh de Facebook an locht is mó atá air. Ós rud é go bhfuil líonra mór cairde, teaghlaigh agus comhghleacaithe agam, logálann mé isteach agus tá liosta gan chuireadh de chuirí agam. Tá sé ridiculous agus ní stopann sé riamh. Tá a fhios agam go bhfuil roinnt socruithe ann ar féidir liom a bhainistiú chun cabhrú leis seo ... ach ní féidir liom a fháil amach cá bhfuil siad. Níl uaim ach bac a chur ar gach iarratas iarratais a thosú.

Níl anseo ach mo thuairim, ar ndóigh! Ba mhaith liom do cheann a chloisteáil…

    Wow, thanks for adding to my list of why I am not even on Facebook, lol!

    I get invites from people I know, people I barely know and even people I have no idea who they are and why do they have my personal email address! Every time I get tempted (ie, nagged into making the effort), I get part way through the TOUS (doesn't anyone else read them?) and gag–"Why does anyone agree to these terms!?!"

    I knew if I waited long enough that I'd find someone else that feels the same way I do about FB. It's just astounding that they should continue to enjoy such prolific growth. I think that there would be a lot of people that use FB under sufferance just because it's the standard icon in web2.0 property. I too would like to see it to either radically change or eventually suffer a similar demise to Internet Explorer. Whilst I'm on FB I'm continually asking myself the question "how could I do without FB and be just as effective?"

    Doug, I agree with you. Facebook was very fun for me at first, and I loved the opportunity to reconnect with old friends. However, the newness of the "toy" has worn off at this point and I find the system has become tedious to use and manage. Like you, I have to balance where I put my time. Is it worth the time to wade through the endless "mafia wars" invitations and silly game requests? Often it is not. I still use the service (somewhat begrudgingly) but I share your feelings that they need a much more user-oriented approach. It seems to me FB has too many games and gadgets, and not enough real people connecting.

    I enjoy FB and have connected with a number of old friends that I'd lost track of. There's probably good reasons why I lost track of them in the first place. I especially agree with #5; it's the first thing I do when I log on: Ignore stuff. I don't want to play in a Mafia or be kidnapped and what's with the virtual farms and zoos? Why can't I sort friends by their last name?

    I agree on all points except #3 — I consider it a blessing that people cannot MySpace-ify their profile pages. Otherwise we'd be subjected to all the gawdawful glittering backgrounds and annoying music that drove folks away from MySpace in the first place.

    The answer is to be a paranoid android. I don't allow anyone to see my profile, only people who are already friends! Of course this works only until you want to link with someone who does the same thing. Then one of you has to temporarily undo this restriction, in order that the other can invite them…

Cad é do bharúil?
