Am I the only one who is sick of this fad? Facebook is everywhere--and now almost every web site offers the viewer to "log in with Facebook". It was amusing at first, but then it became ridiculous. Almost every business feels it must have the obligatory Facebook page. I agree with others in that as a photo sharing site, it's certainly not among the best and doesn't come close to those dedicated to photo uploading and sharing.
The gaming--there are a number of excellent gaming websites out there. I am a member of one and the variety of types of games, as well as the quality, are so very far advanced over anything Facebook offers. For a small monthly fee, I can play anything from solitaire to extremely engaging and difficult large file games that cause one to really give the brain cells a workout.
I think the author is right about teens abandoning the site now that their parents have hopped aboard. Teens are notoriously fickle. And also something that hasn't been addressed--Facebook can be instrumental in helping those with less than honest intentions have a field day and make life miserable for a lot of people.
Personally, Facebook can't fall out of the public's favor soon enough. As for buying stock in the phenomenon--don't waste your money. In this day and age, things come and go at a blurring rate. It's not worth the risk. Thanks for giving me space to vent!
