I choose not to have Facebook, and it annoys me that one has to have a FB account in order to get free stuff, enter sweepstakes, or play games on several of my favorite TV show sites. Any way to get around this? I'm sure I'm not the only person who this is affecting.

Maybe sign up with a fake name and a e-mail just for that account?

Yep, that's what I did, signed up w/a fake name w/ a email I use only for freebie signups. A side benefit to that is, when I get stuff in the mail, I know that it's not "official" cuz it's coming via my online alias. And when I get junkmail, I know who's responsible!

Great idea! Just think of the fun you could have, creating a new identity.

Hey that's it.....I could be a 21 year old hottie.

Michigan Transplant, I think seeing so many freebie offers going the way of Facebook was annoying to all of us during the past year. I didn't want a personal Facebook, so I created one under a really stupid name and got a free gmail email account to associate with it. Now, I get all my freebies and never even go to my Facebook page.

Here would be my question: After Facebook isn't all the rage, I wonder if all these companies will then flop over to the newest thing and we will have to start all over again.
