I am not an avid user of Facebook, but I do use it occasionally for events. After people found out I had finally joined the Facebook hive I started getting friend invites from a whole lot of people. At first I accepted them all with open arms thinking I'm was the coolest guy on the internet. But then reality kicked in and I found out that I don't really give a fuck if someone is going to go work out today, or if someone just painted their toenails. But then there is the worst of it all!!! The crazy religious people that feel they must share scripture every 10 minutes, or the assholes that thanks Jesus because their baby just took a shit, or because their car finally started on a cold morning.
So for awhile I was hiding only those posts from people because I thought it was annoying, but more and more they came. Pretty soon there were too many to hide and my Facebook had become flooded with the faithful's nuttbaggery. And then the friend deletions started. I originally had a few hundred friends. A lot of them were old Army buddies that I hadn't seen in awhile. It was fun at first, but then realized after the initial conversations, I never talked to them again. Now I have somewhere around 40 friends, and that list will probably be going down even more as I have just found out one of my good friends just became a born again Christian, and he like to share his thought on the subject ALL THE TIME. Since his "coming out" I have maybe had 1 conversation with him, and it ended up going the religious route so now I avoid him. He has become almost cult like and it's scary.
Ah fuck it, I'm probably just going to delete Facebook. Online social networking is crap anyway (says the guy writing a blog post on an online social network site).
