This is how Facebook tracks you

I'd much rather send a text or e-mail, or make a phone call. What would a young woman think of a man who didn't have a Facebook, and why? Be honest.

I'm a 20 year old male by the way.
This happens to me with smart phones. People get all bent out of shape because I don't have one (nor do I have any interest in getting one).

Who cares what other people have or don't have or expect you to have?

Be your own person and move along.

I will tell you that most grown men I know (in their 30s to 50s) don't have facebook pages. It's a chick and young man thing.

Divorce lawyers claim the explosion in the popularity of websites such as Facebook and Bebo is tempting to people to cheat on their partners. Suspicious spouses have also used the websites to find evidence of flirting and even affairs which have led to divorce.

Facebook doesn't cause cheating. A-holes do.

I'm not going to disagree. Facebook is a great way to keep in touch... but, one more way for cheaters or would-be cheaters to communicate and meet up.

Then theres the CD posters with threads trying to limit their partners choices on fb friends lists. God forbid an ex. or a co-worker of the opposite sex.

Hah, if somebody prunes their list and I'm not on it anymore, it takes me MONTHS sometimes to even notice. Some people take this sort of thing seriously, I'd imagine, but many others don't. Not everyone cares.

Hah, I barely have a phone, let alone a smart phone (also no plans to upgrade). Just a $14 pay-as-you-go phone that I keep around in case I get stranded with car trouble. I am LEGENDARY at my workplace for my so-called Amish ways. It's good times. It's funny to see people aghast at how I can possibly LIVE without a pocket-sized web browser. I'm at a computer enough as it is, I certainly don't need to carry one around with me. My phone works well for times when I absolutely need to contact somebody, and that's really the only reason I keep one at all. Not a big phone person, here.

Yes, but I don't know that we can say that there is any more or less cheating in the world now that facebook is around.

Cheating is as old as the human race.

Everything is a tool. Mail. The phone. The automobile. And now the internet. SSDD.

Here's what I say.

Friend, your phone is a vastly superior computer compared to my phone. But my phone is a vastly superior PHONE compared to your phone (better signal and reception, no dropped calls, etc).

I need a phone. Not some giant pocket computer (that doesn't fit in my pocket, btw).

Only because I live so far away from most of my friends and fam and I have a slew of physical ailments. Plus I hardly ever call anyone (I have a thing about phones, always have). If people don't hear from me, I get messages all over my wall... Anyone hear from Willow lately? Will, you okay? What's up? blah, blah, blah...

So yeah, we should punish everyone because there are some nut jobs in the world. Thanfuly, our forefathers used their brains and their common sense when drafting the constitution, thats he way we do things here in the USA.

Same goes for that. People may have the tendency to be unfaithful (I won't argue that), but very few would go and dig out corpses from their early youth unless they happen to be right under their noses.
So how is that Facebooks problem? How can it be blamed on Facebook?

FB is like anything else, it can be used for good, or it can be used for evil, it's all up to the individual. Take science for instance. Science can be used to help prevent or even cure diseases. It's also science that created the Nuclear warhead.

It all comes down to the devil made me do it attitude. People are always trying to find excuses for their actions rather than take responsibility i.e. Facebook made me cheat on my wife/husband.
