Sarcasm Is The Lowest Form Of Humour

Not to assume Willem was attempting to be humourous though.
And yeah, that episode of South Park was prett funny. In a cheap, lame and nasty South Park way. I think Facebook has some real uses, and its free so I rather appreciate it. I have got back in contact with a bunch of people from my youth who I didnt think I'd see again, so thats kinda awesome. And it was easy to talk to my freinds when they were abroad.
But Farm World and Cafe World and Fish Tank World - seriously?!?!? And people who now just stay in and "socialise" on Facebook - get a life!!! Use Facebook to arrange a rendezvous and then meet up, go for a drink, or go and play some sports or something.

This assumes that everyone on your Facebook friend list lives down the street from you. Most of mine are across the country or the globe.

IMO using Facebook to communicate with people who you dont get to see is a good thing.
Its like Christmas cards - people traditionally sent cards to their freinds and loved ones at Christmas to say hi and wish them all the best because they wouldnt get to see them at Christmas. Giving cards to everyone you see everyday I think is false, you might aswell wish them a merry Christmas in person! Some people obsessively write and give Chistmas cards to every single person that they can think of - everyone - early in the season, probably just because they want to get as many back and put them on their wall so that anyone who comes into their house can see how manyy "freinds" they have.
Dont get me wrong, I use Facebook a lot, but I dont bother playing these terrible games which work in real time like Aquarium World or whatever it is. In that 'game' you have to log on every few hours to perform maintenance tasks. Or Farm World where you have to log on often to perform maintenance tasks and you need to rope your freinds into it. Boooooring. Unless you are about eight years old I guess.
Horses for courses I guess :)

Excellent way of communicating with people.
Encourages young people to learn IT.
Quickly turns into a popularity contest for some people which is smarmy and annoying. /

So just block the apps the first time they appear in your feed. Done. It takes 2 mouse clicks. Then it need never bother you again.

Each to their own tbh, how many hours do you spend playing Quake, etc?
But I do agree with the pointlessness of using it to talk to people you see reguarly. I only started using it when friends started emmigrating, China is kinda far to pop round for a cuppa...

Do you guys not send email to people you see locally? Or text messages?
It's just another way of communicating with people.

I'm on it, but only for actual real friends that I actually really interact with. Yeah I have friends in other places, I chat to them direct on MSN or exchange long rambling emails or pick up the fucking phone and speak to them...

You guys really don't understand Facebook at all. It's not for chatting.

I guess my question is, why do you apparently believe that it's a binary choice? You either use Facebook or you talk to people in real life. It's totally possible to do both. Really, I do it all the time!
Facebook is a great way to share pictures of events and to share stuff with a lot of people without setting up an email list. Use it for what it's good for and stop focusing on what it isn't.

i deactivated my account earlier this year. i have nothing against it in principle but i'm personally happier without it; it was the source of way too much anti-escapism for me

This one website isn't really meant for what people use it for, so they must be wrong.
P.S. Pictures on FB look horrible.

"P.S. Pictures on FB look horrible."
Hint : Use Flickr or your own hosting if you care about resolution. Facebook is about sharing fun pictures with your friends and family (usually photos with them in them). They don't need to be super high-res for that.
