Shunning Facebook, and Living to Tell About It

Tyson Balcomb quit Facebook after a chance encounter on an elevator. He found himself standing next to a woman he had never met — yet through Facebook he knew what her older brother looked like, that she was from a tiny island off the coast of Washington and that she had recently visited the Space Needle in Seattle.

“I knew all these things about her, but I’d never even talked to her,” said Mr. Balcomb, a pre-med student in Oregon who had some real-life friends in common with the woman. “At that point I thought, maybe this is a little unhealthy.”

As Facebook prepares for a much-anticipated public offering, the company is eager to show off its momentum by building on its huge membership: more than 800 million active users around the world, Facebook says, and roughly 200 million in the United States, or two-thirds of the population.

But the company is running into a roadblock in this country. ...

Our friends across the pond can comment on this one.

Brits drunk in 76 percent of Facebook shots?.

Apparently, way too many in Merry Ol' England, are spending too much time on Facebook, during happy hour?

I've half-heartedly dabled with FB for a couple of years and have grown tired of it. There are a few people in my tiny network who seemingly live for it, but the talk is mostly profane and juvenile. I find that FB encourages people to constantly "one up" one another with seemingly endless cycles of self-admiration. Kind of pathetic in my view...

Frankly, when I see how morally stunted people are who have rejected the knowledge of God it makes me want to turn off Facebook and enjoy some solid fellowship with my family in Christ who are more concerned with glorifying God than self. (My attempts to shine some light in the darkness seem to be met with either silence or disdain -- which is what I suppose one should expect from their "pre-Christian" "friends".)

Anyway, I'm through with FB and much prefer to spend "face time" with real friends.
