Facebook; Wherefore Doth I Still Use Thee Whenst Thou Sucketh?

Okay, no, I won't try breaking out in Medieval English and sonnets.

But - I do sometimes wonder why – when we have a site like PersonaPaper – any of us would ever spend as much time on Facebook as many of us do.

Me, for example.

I mean, here Will and Heather are offering to send me money for sharing work/posts/snippets of my life and/or socializing with a mostly-friendly crowd but, so much time is still spent otherwheres for free?

We Humans are a weird, odd, strange, enigmatic species, indeed.

At least I am, anyway. I can't speak for others, of course.

I'm guessing it might be the ease and ability to utilize fakebook with how their notifications work.

It might also be the sheer numbers of our social contacts on Facebook and wanting to stay in-touch.

It might be how FB will suck your head right into your screen and shlupglurpnomnomglurp your brain-cell right outta-your-head-bone.

It could also be a combination of all of these things, too.

This is just my guess but, hopefully just as valid as yours. (Just what is your guess , anyway?)

Eventually, though, Will will develop the code to where the site experience will be smoother.

Eventually, a referral contest will bring more users/activity in.

One day, more home-pages than just mine will be set to the homepage of PersonaPaper to start all 'puter sessions.

Isn't it an awesome thought to know you'll someday be called one of the old hands 'round here?

I don't spend as much time on Facebook as I used to. I just go there to play my Franchise Football and Franchise Baseball games, drop in on my activity groups from time to time, and promote my Examiner reviews on my Author's Page and timeline.

I'm only still on Facebook because of true friends and family. But I hardly even get there anymore.

LoudMan I hardly go on Facebook anymore. I used to go on in the beginning. When Facebook was the only game in town really. Well, there was MyLot at the time. But I was new to Facebook then. Now it seems boring. Nonsense posts. Some things people post there are funny or cool. But all in all, boring. I actually eliminated all my friends there and only kept close friends and family. I did make another Facebook account to use to promote my links from here and elsewhere. I think being here and the other site are just more fun to me. I just wish I had more time lately. But as I said, I have been real busy.

I never have been a fan of facebook and honestly I only visit it about once a month and some months not even that. My "facebook" is Bubblews and Persona Paper, they completely took the place of facebook for me.
