Loving Facebook, Hating Facebook

facebook-logoPablo Zarate made a clear statement. Capo wrote about it. I’m getting bored with it. And here’s 25 reasons not to love it:

So let’s be trendy (for once) and:

  • Keep professional contacts at LinkedIn
  • Don’t accept silly requests or things getting thrown
  • Bluntly… defriend (I will start with people that don’t even respond to a personal e-card for their birthday. I just hate that!)

  • Real messages of real friends
  • Real friends’ birthdays
  • Events of bands/groups/subjects of interest
  • Worthwhile causes
