The latest trend in the tech world doesn't involve sharing what you buy on Blippy or lining up in the rain for the iPad. It involves Facebook. No, not hanging out on Facebook, but kicking it to the curb.

Hello, my name is Charles, and I am a recovering Facebook user.

Actually I barely ever used it. Too boring. City-Data forum is much more interesting.
Took me hours to create my Facebook page and I never really understood all the settings. Security was too confusing. Uploading video was inconsistent and provided weak feedback

Through the years, I've seen lots of various instant messenger and social networking sites come and go. I think after a period of time, people look for something new and fresh. Maybe Facebook is now going through the same cycle. Who knows?

Facebook is going the way of Myspace.

You know which site is going to fall the hardest? IMO Twitter.
No one cares when you eat your breakfast or take a dump. No need to send twitter updates that you're waiting in line at Walmart or that the checker was rude to you (probably because you were on your cell phone).

I would quit my Myspace first before ever quitting Facebook. Myspace is becoming an ignorant and socially materialistic community that I am getting tired of more and more each year. After high school, I hope I get the balls to delete my page once and for all.

Facebook, MySpace caught releasing user data - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ynews/20100521/tc_ynews/ynews_tc2189 - broken link)

Personally, I'm not that worried about the security of my information. I go there to play games--and if I do feel like communicating with people I went to school with, or family members, I can do so there.

What is wrong with you? That makes sense! As does these mindless dribble-ish such sites with people tee-heeing and chitter-chatting about absolutely nothing. What's next, people realize most of what's on TV and being played on the radio is utter crap too?? What's this world trying to do, reverse the trend of going down the toilet?? Crazy talk I say!

Whatever. Never understood the fascination any of these hold for people. You gain self-worth by knowing a lot of people? Right.
