    I'm done - I'm out. I tried hard to

    be on top of things but I have so many other things that are important to me. I'm talking of course about Facebook and Twitter. I thought Facebook would be a way to keep up with old friends but it becomes such a drain to log-in, look at everyone pages, make some stupid comment... We're becoming a society that is losing the ability to have personal face-to-face relationships. There is no depth anymore.

    As for Twitter - how many self-absorbed people think we give a crap about what they think every minute of the day?

    Screw it - I'm out. I must keep my blackberry but I reserve the right to screen calls and not answer e-mails when I want to attempt to hold a conversation and rekindle the connections with my physical friends.

    I've never started, so I guess I'm with ya. Does seem like a big waste of time. Unlike message boards.

    Re: I'm done - I'm out. I tried hard to

    I am having problems with facebook and my wife getting mad at me for not making coments on her posts. It's the silliest stupid *** thing I have ever had a fight about. I just thought it was a good way to keep up with old friends. Now I am sick of fighting my wife about it so I am basically going to bail out on it.

    I gave up on Facebook but I find some stuff on Twitter very funny and there's even some good info if you follow the right people.

    Kinda ironic that you would use an anonymous internet forum to lash out about our society losing the ability to have personal face-to-face relationships.

    Re: I'm done - I'm out. I tried hard to

    Hmmm I don't much care for half the crap on Facebook anymore - really I don't give a flying puck if a friend from high school got a chicken on Farmville

    That said I still keep it as a resource, and use Facebook status updates instead of Twitter.

    After all, twitter is basically a mass text message/Facebook Status update. It's redundant

    Re: I'm done - I'm out. I tried hard to

    The only good thing I've found about Facebook is that I don't have to keep track of my friends' ever changing email addresses to keep in touch with them. Other than that, I find it pretty worthless.

    Twitter has no redeeming value whatsoever.

    Facebook does get a little rediculous at times, with all the **** I see when I first log in. Some of it is just ******* stupid with all the quizzes and stuff, I gues I just don't get it. I don't really care for it much anynore...

    Are your complaints about Facebook and Twitter really any different than what you just posted to all of Cyclone Nation?

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
