Disliking Facebook because people act like idiots on it is like disliking the phone system because of crank callers or telemarketers. Used properly it is useful. Unfriend morans. Remove unwanted apps, tags, etc. Set privacy levels. It`s not rocket science.

you know he makes a really good point. Just think of how many people sit there for hours everyday playing the stupid games on there, when everything around them falls apart. My brother got divorced because of Farmville. Sad really

I know the world can live without Facebook and all those other sites like myspace and twitter. But whats the harm in having an account? It makes communicating convenient, I`ve recently gotten in touch with a long lost friend from the UK via facebook, and it`s not like once you get addicted to it you wont get Facebook cancer like smoking can lead to lung cancer. hmm oh well i like my Facebook account and don`t plan on getting rid of it anytime soon.

I don`t understand why it all had to be written on huge pieces of paper, isn`t the video about expressing who you really are? Shouldn`t they have you used their voice then?

Either way it`s a huge waste of natural resources, and a lot of the statements there a far too generalized

Facebook in its most basic sense is fine. It`s the people who update their scuzz 5 times or 25 times a day that suck. I like using FB to keep up with my brother who lives in Hong Kong, and my friends who live in Hawaii and other places. What`s wrong with that? Nothing.

I have one particularly retarded friend of a friend, and she writes LOL on literally every f*cking thing she`s ever written. I`m pretty sure she doesn`t know what it even means. One of these days I swear she`ll write "My mom just got diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer LOL".

People like her need to be shot. Sometimes the gene pool could use a little chlorine.

I agree with much of what he said, but you can`t fight it. This is where technology is taking us. Just like your parents or grandparents who couldn`t program their VCR well enough to get it to stop blinking "12:00", you get on the tech train or you get left behind.

I really wanted to punch that man throughout.
Yes, I am like that in real life.
No, I don`t accept people I don`t like.
You are very pretentious, do not try and smile at me with your washed out mug to take away from that fact.
Unfortunately, I have only ever used 3 of those abbreviations. And used them before I had facebook.
Thankfully you are in South Korea, so I never have to meet you.

So after reading all of the comments, i can actually easily group all of the people on the site. 1) People who make fun of this guy (finger licking, meth face, etc) and it is obviously because he attacked your "way of life". It is sad that I must use that phrase. But that is what facebook is to people-- A way of life. Its no longer just a "tool to keep in touch with friends. People spend hours and hours on that stupid ass site. Honestly, yes, his finger licking was distracting, but his arguments were valid. And everyone who attacked him, and not his arguments, are facebook addicts. 2) The people who realize his arguments are good. These people very rarely talked about him as a person. Probably my favorite of the commenters. 3) The people who have never used facebook, or already quit. (ME) I love how this group openly admits that they are happy without facebook.

Nice video. Liked it.
Guess it applies to people who obsessively spend
every waking moment on Facebook. It`s sad
when a social networking website becomes the
substitute for something everyone once did in real life. Socialize.

most of my activity on facebook is either organising or promoting my dj gigs and also it is helpful in sorting out social events with friends. yes some people will spend hours on farmville and perve over pictures, but facebook is still very useful. also this guy looks like a massive prick who licks his fingers way too often

I like the video, but it doesn`t actually reflect on my personal experience on Facebook, I have actual friends, I only add friends I talk to regularly in real life, and I don`t add people who I don`t like to look like I`m more popular, but I guess I`m just in a minority :P

I know that many people actually are like this on facebook, so those who are bashing on this guy should at least do in a more polite and considerate way. I`m not, but I don`t check facebook that often anyways. I`m more of one of those that uses it for homework help and ignoring relatives.

@x13purplesta Cheers for people who actually use facebook to communicate with people they actually do talk too. I use it to communicate with my friends and relatives over at my home country, and I post all these pictures for them to see how I`m doing. It`s great and I never tell people I don`t like to add me at facebook especially at work or at school. I tell them I have no facebook :P

Bored. Abbreviations are more prevalent in texting-- and I don`t even use them there.

I manage my friendslist to keep only people I stay in contact with on there.

--I do think you`re pretentious. You make broad generalizations about people using facebook, and then set yourself above them.

Really, I use facebook for the chat, to post links of interesting things I find online to people I know will enjoy them, and to keep in touch with other people bored at 5 AM.

I delete people who spam, or get on my nerves with their posting.

I don`t use it to compare myself to other people.

It is NOT ironic that a message aimed at people on facebook will reach people who are on facebook.

..next?

The only problem I have with facebook is how it`s coming to be so important on the internet. I don`t like all the tabs that pop up on various sites that have the facebook, twitter, etc. buttons. I don`t like that so many organizations direct you to their facebook if you want more information about them. I have heard talk that facebook is expanding to become some sort of internet social hub. I use facebook to keep in contact with friends, but I don`t want to put my whole life up on the internet.

I have an FB account yeah. I basically use it to have a laugh and joke around. Too many people air their dirty laundry on it.
I dont message people out of the blue either. I have a lot of fam on there with whom I`ll share some photos of my child (as she doesnt live with me)
I`ll admit I did get into Mafia Farm and all that BS but that soon became very boring so I gave up on the games.
For now, like I say, its just for posting jokes and such.
And deleting people who air dirty laundry

I don`t have facebook, and out of all the people I know, less than 5 have a FB account. Friends, relatives, coworkers, neighbors, no one has one. I`ve been online over 20 years, so it`s not like I`m not internet savvy enough to join, it just seems like the most boring thing I`ve ever seen. Why do I want to read you ate dinner or that you had a fight with your boyfriend or your dog puked? I just don`t.

Don`t have a facebook don`t want one. Had a myspace, saw all the pictures friends took that made them look like sluts, turned sad and deleted myspace.

I rather believe I have met good people in life than to know I`ve befriended people who are more interested in what others think of them than to care what of what they are capable of.

Auburnjunky- I am almost flattered, but I am not a girl and haven`t been for quite a while. I am tall and thin, I like tall dark and fairly slender men. The slightest hint of fat is nasty. I have liked the same type for over 30 years so I doubt I will grow out of it, but at his age I merely admire, anything else would not be appropriate LOL!

Hello, my name is Howard, and I`ve been clean for about 2 years now. I deleted my account when I was a student and never looked back since. There are days when I don`t have much to do, those days are hard for me. But I think of my loved ones and they make me stronger. Remember, there is no electronic solution to a spiritual problem.

i hate this guy. he`s like all those recovered alcoholics who will preach to you about how bad drinking is. The truth of the matter is drinking isn`t that bad when you`re responsible. and likewise, facebook isn`t that bad when you`re responsible with it.

Just because this guy was on fb all the time doesn`t mean others can`t use it responsibly to catch up with old friends they wouldn`t get a chance to.

Those abbreviations all predate facebook and facebook is a very tiny percent of their usage. Why take advice on internet usage from a homeless person who was paid to do this by letting them keep the pages to make insulation?

And why the drat does he have to lick his fingers every time to change the page when he`s moving giant drating cards?

(btw, i know that he probably doesn`t look at this site but i felt like writing him a very "nice" note.)

All you people defending your own use of facebook are just in denial about how useless and fake it really is. Facebook has only been around for a few years yet you act like it`s so important to keep because you can "keep in touch" with all the people you never bothered to keep in touch with before social networking even existed. All of your true friends and family probably have your phone number. Do you even remember how you kept in touch before facebook or myspace? Life used to be so much more personal and interesting, and now everyone needs to constantly remind everyone of their existence by displaying their thoughts and random cut and paste anecdotes so they can collect popularity points (i.e. comments, likes, "friends", etc...). I think humanity as a whole would benefit from removing their facebook profiles then going out and being a real person and doing things with your real friends instead of trying to garner the attention of people you barely know.

This was obnoxious. Granted, I see how the general population becomes owned by their technological machines, but if you use them for your benefit and don`t get addicted they can be a great asset. I only check it once a day, I don`t accept people that I wouldn`t want to be friends with in person, I`ve banned all apps from my profile and newsfeed, and I periodically edit my friends. Just because this guy is insecure with his account doesn`t mean everybody is.

Disliking Facebook because people act like idiots on it is like disliking the phone system because of crank callers or telemarketers. Used properly it is useful. Unfriend morans. Remove unwanted apps, tags, etc. Set privacy levels. It`s not rocket science.
