10 Reasons Facebook Is For Losers

I am on Linked In and have over 800 contacts.

I have 6 - six - contacts on Facebook.

What's up with that and what does that have to do with Needing Money?

Facebook has replaced MySpace as the hottest social network in the universe. Nope, I don't have numbers to back that statement up, but I think it is true.

A friend came over for dinner a few weeks ago and he told me 1% of all people on earth have a Facebook account. I wonder if some of those people in countries outside of the United States even know what a "Facebook" is? They did not have a Facebook at my college or place of learning, so the word was new to me too.

Anyway, some people who do internet marketing swear by Facebook. They claim they can make all kinds of money somehow or another using Facebook. I read a long post from some guy who wrote all about using flyers and getting 5% click thru and a bunch of other things. Then he said that his money making only worked a few times before his account was deleted. Fun.

Here is why Facebook is for LOSERS and it has nothing to do with making money. (I am just tired of hearing about Facebook and why it is soooo neat.).



1) Facebook specializes in bringing people together with their former classmates

I hated high school. I hated college. So why would I be interested in seeing what "nobody I was ever friends" with is doing now? Most of the people on Facebook look like losers now, so what is the point?

Further, I think I am still friends with one person from college. Again, why in the world would I want to dig around on Facebook and see what people from college, whom I was never friends with, are up to now? 

2) Facebook's interface sucks

Why?

If I join MyBlogLog or LinkedIn, I can find all kinds of people and websites from the "get go". I don't have to join, I can just start searching.

Go to Facebook.com. "Its Free, anyone can join". Nothing else to see. Yes, you can go to the Find Friends and search by a topic or even drill through names, but that's it. You can see a picture, but if you want to know anything else, you have to join.

To compare, go to Linkedin. Go to the bottom of the page. Enter in a name and bingo, you have the full profile of the person you are looking for, even if you are not a member or logged in. 

And another thing.. That sign up page is the same one they've had since 2005. Besides having a kid, do you think Mark Zuckerberg could take five minutes to update FB's sign up page?


3) The Wall

Who gives a rat's butt what you are doing today or this minute? People write the dumbest things like "I am using the bathroom" or "just changed the baby's diaper".

Now think about it. What kind of person finishes an activity and quickly runs to their computer or phone and puts a post on their Wall?

L-O-S-E-R, that's who.

4) Facebook is a time waster.

A friend revealed to me she spends 1-2 hours A DAY on Facebook. Some of it is spent looking up old friends (losers from high school). But most of her time is spent trying to sound more interesting than the other people on her friends list.

So she makes up stuff to put on her wall like, "just finished reading Obama's book" or "Tutoring the baby in French while listening to Mozart". And she it not alone. I read lots of nonsense like this on people's walls like "working on my spiritual drumming", "finding my inner self", etc...

Its all made up. Losers just post what ever they think their little group of friends will believe that day.

Um, I think it would be a better waste of time to eat bon-bons and watch soap operas all day.


5) Everybody lies on Facebook

If you are divorced, you are "suddenly single!"
If you are out of work, you are "starting your own business!".
If you live at home, you are "homesick and visiting your parents!".
If you are not married, you are "single and loving it!"

Everybody has a great life on Facebook. What a place for losers.


6) Why would I want to network with my sister, co-workers or customers in the same place?

Facebook is for everyone! Which means my family is on Facebook along with one or two of my coworkers, someone at a job I'm applying for, a few of my customers, ten losers from my high school, a lady from church, the next door neighbor and the guy I play golf with.

Do I really want all of those people to potentially know each other through me? Talk about the walls between your world coming down.

That sounds like the beginning of a nuclear network meltdown. Divorce, shootings, home invasions, ugh.


7) Facebook is full of middle aged people trying to hook up with that guy or girl from high school that for some reason, they think has frozen in time and still looks like they did when they were 17.

Nothing screams loser like that.


8) Facebook is the MySpace of 2015....

Just wait. In a few months you will be getting friend requests from some girl named "Jazmin" and a guy name "Pimp-O-Dellic" neither of whom you know.

Then there will be sparkly, bling a bling wallpapers for Facebook.

Finally, the last straw will be when ten people named Odinga from Nigeria want to friend you and tell you about the $10M you have in their bank that they need your help getting out of the country.

And soon, Facebook will be the social media thing your grandparents do on their desktop tower over a modem.  

9) Your Facebook membership serves only to make the owners rich with your self absorbed content. You get nothing for your work.

There is no revenue share for your content, your life, your posts. They put ads on your profile and bank the payback. You get nada, loser.

There is no linkback, SEO benefit, no way to build something better and money making outside of Facebook. There's no revenue sharing whether you have six friends and two posts or one million pals and post several times an hour. Everyone makes nothing with Facebook.

Here's a real kick in the pants: Zuckerberg is planning on giving away his Facebook billions to causes he believes in. Why doesn't he consider giving each of his members, (you know, the customers that helped him build his gazoogle dollar empire) some of that loot? How giving each FB member 20.00 for each year of active use. Users can decide to keep that money or donate it to the cause OF THEIR CHOICE. That sounds fair to me. Someone should start a petition.

10) 10 years from now, you will be embarrassed about all the stuff you put on Facebook.

But because it is the internet, it will be there forever..

You can throw the diary away from grade school.

You can burn your yearbooks.

You can pretend you never dated that guy with the Camaro your junior year.

Facebook lives forever. With all of your Wall posts, friends, everything.

Now you understand why Facebook is for losers?


Again, Zuckerberg has made billions off Facebook.   FB is only as valuable as the content you provided free of charge. Keep doing this and you're a sucker and a loser. 


That's more than being a LOSER, that's just plain STUPID.

I have a facebook account and realize a huge percentage of what you say is true. I had alot of people on there from high school and previous jobs, former dates that treated me bad.. etc..I suppose to see just how many people I could put on my account. Then I finally realized...... Why do I want a picture of someone's face that once treated me bad that suddenly acts as if they are my friend? Needless to say I deleted the majority of them, and just keep the good people on there..especially the ones who are out of state that I don't get to see very often.....Facebook is not a totally bad thing especially since there are not many things in life that are free.. but some people go overboard like my son claiming to have 800 friends.. I don't even know 800 people...And the silly games on there really don't make any sense to me.Even funnier are the quizzes....What movie star do you look like?? HAHAHAHAHA!!

Yeah, Faceboook is WAY lame. It's all a bunch of pretentious bullshit. I admit to trying to it out for a few months, though. I would try to post interesting articles that you dont hear about in mainstream news, like say, a river full of plastic & garbage in europe... With pictures even... Genuinely interesting and comment worthy stuff. Zero Comments! It was like I didn't even exsist...

And then moments later you'd see someone post "XXX is going to walmart to buy some towels" and you would see like 13 people who "like this" and 14 comments.... SERIOUSLY dude??

That when I deleted, or "deactivated" my account and said screw this crap. People have lost their minds with this shit.. It's more like a "status" war, then actual "reconnecting"

Screw Facebook! Never again!

Man..that there is exactly how I feel..Love it!!You did an awesome job explaining that. I deactivated my account because I couldn't handle the pollution to my brain anymore. I need to delete it actually b/c I never go on it anyways. All these people I know or used to know talk about themselves everyday and lie about everything. An old high school "friend" of mine made a page for her 1 yr old daughter and added herself on it to increase her number. And I'm 15 years out of high school OMG..so fake! It is so sad.

This is life changing. All I need is a couple more reasons and I'll close my account. I regret ever opening it the first place. And what's up with the indirect invitations to events, huh? They're so f'n LAME! I always ignore them. If you want to invite me somewhere, e-mail me personally, call me, mail me. DO NOT SEND INDIRECT INVITATIONS CAUSE I'LL ALWAYS SAY "NOT ATTENDING".

JD said...

Anon, This is my latest complaint about FB as well. People who are unable to pick up a phone or even send a simple email "Can you come to our house for BBQ?" etc.
Rather, they post it on FB and expect everyone to jump on board. Annoying.

Hilarious...just what I was thinking too. I keep going back to Facebook to see if there is something I am missing...what's so special? I made an account and then deleted it. Of the two, I think if you want a mindless hobby, Myspace is better. At least you can post music you like, write a blog, and can be more creative with your skin. Did it for a year and deleted that one too after realizing how stupid it was. Facebook is blah, blah, blah. Like watching a slow drip come out of the faucet. Each page looks the same. Just a fad like everything else. The worst is Twitter! Twit what? What you had for lunch?

Jalal said...

Well, im totally agree with this
but what i see that facebook is become a style for young girls and boys ( 13 or less lol, and above )
and for those they are missed the life train it's a free journey to join what they missed out.

I finally found someone who thinks the way I do: Facebook is a waste of time. I would not say it is for losers, but yes, losers use this all the time. All I see is facebook, either on the computer or the cell phone. These people are actually dumb enough to post private information like social security numbers and the like on their facebook. Worst is that Facebook is so unsecure that it even has a worm just for it: Koobface. Look that one up. Facebookers beware, Hackers are There (bad pun, but really).

This was funny. Although, considering you only have six friends on Facebook, I think it's a weird that the little friends you do have post things like "working on my spiritual drumming" and "finding my inner self". I think that you should either get some more friends on Facebook or maybe some more in real life, as it seems you have few to many social networking acounts..

This is nothing but true. My whole family and some of my friends use Facebook, as well as my whole school. Whenever i see Facebook, i always say that Facebook is for losers. I mean so much of my friends are asking me, "Do you have a Facebook?" I say no or "no, Facebook is for losers." They don't say anything or change the subject. I really hate Facebook. I just Googled "Facebook is for losers and then found this. Great Job. I totally agree 100%. And your are especially right about the wall thing. It's really stupid!!!

90% of the people who use facebook are losers. That is fact. Think about all your friends on facebook. How many of them would you truly call a friend? How many of them do you know or even send messages to? Facebook is for little snitch bitches. Who make up shit and are liars probly cus they're jealous about another persons success or wish they could be that person they're trying to talk shit about. I quit facebook along time ago and its the best thing I ever did. Myspace is the bomb. And I wish I knew who invented facebook (copying myspace by the way). I would murder them. And God would be happier.

Yes Facebook has it uses, sometimess you look up a long lost friend you actually liked, or stay in touch with friends abroad, or even just marketing. But then again other social network sites do this so much better...
&Zuckerberg is the luckiest and biggest a**hole of all time. How dare he presume that our privacy and our real life intricate social networks can be flattened on to a FB wall that he keeps forever without any respect for our rights as human beings... How naive and immature or simply self rapped up is this kid? Whatever he thinks, the reality is It's Big brother mentality. Generally speaking the same losers who watch Big brother, are the same losers who use Big Brother Book. Strictly for shallow and lifeless. The F-Generation...

And what about security of your personal data? Like being said about BlogLog and LinkedIn, you just type the name and see full details. Do you like to share everything you've got to millions of douchebags, who are just waiting to steal your info and usit against you?

Amen, Facebook is for losers. People who have no self confidence in their real lives and thus live their lives through some surrogate person they create on the internet. They attempt to establish relationships based upon a load of false information, useless statements, and photos all spurred by a self induced peer pressure to post the details of their lives on the internet! People don't care that you just finished the first season of Lost and if they do, well this is the whole problem! Why are people lurking each other online so much, do you really have nothing better to do with your day? Are you that pathetic of a person that you cannot live out your life with real interaction with other people "in person"? Must people hide behind a computer screen where they can create alternate personalities and live out old fantasies with their other loser friends? God help us all if this is so..... However, I realize that people who use Facebook also have real friends. The problem is that Facebook allows people to create false relationships with other people that can ultimately be damaging to real relationships. Faccebook is a pathetic attempt for losers to make themselves look cool and pretend that people actually care. Well I think everyone needs to have a giant, NOBODY GIVES A SHIT! posted on their wall. Get a life Facebook.

Dude, facebook is only as good as the friends you have on there.

If your mates all feel the need to alert you whenever they sneeze, then you have boring friends and a boring life. However, if you have interesting people who you enjoy hearing from on there, then it's fine.

You may as well say people are for losers: only people who are losers are.

I totally agree with everything you said here. Facebook is shallow and as I like to call it, it is nothing but an "ego-barrel" and I can't believe how the internet is big enough for everybody's ego to be in. There is absolutely nothing redeeming about Facebook. All my "friends" ever did there was showcase their new f-in iPad, their newly found "photographic skills" mainly because they bought a Canon Digital SLR and all of a sudden they are freaking professional photographers, complaining on how there is no f-in internet where they were a few minutes ago, ranting on how somebody in their list made them upset, raving about something I have no f-in interest in, putting those lame-ass "quotes" that they probably came up with after hours of meditation such as "A true friend appreciates another" which is, for f*cks sake, just a lame ass way of saying "Comment on my photos you assholes!" The world is better off without Facebook and I hope it crash and burn soon. And Mark Suck-erberg, YOU SUCK!

It isn't just FB in my opinion. All "Social networking" sites are for complete losers. The other problem with all of this is that we are supposed to be more connected than ever before, yet no-one actually communicates anymore. People in my family are on Facebook and they post stuff all the time on there. When we have a family get together, they talk about what they posted a few days before. Other than that, they rarely talk to each other.

I also agree about the senseless stuff that is posted. I went to the bathroom, cut myself shaving, etc. WHO CARES? And yes, all of these people are losers. Worst of all most of them don't even know how to use a computer, so I get to fix their crap when it messes up. Usually as a result of something they got from someone else on FB. I am sure virus writers love the FB demographic. Can't think of an easier group to target than the morons on there.

It sort of reminds me of cellphones and how they have taken over society too. Can you imagine if there were aliens out there looking at Earth as a possible planet to take over? They would probably be laughing over how absorbed our society is with cell phones, social media, etc. We would be easy to conquer. They would just need to post something on FB about an event, then send text messages about it also, then slaughter us all in one spot. Sometimes I am embarrassed to be a human.

Can you imagine if the activities we do today were listed in a book back in the 90's? Like if someone predicted people doing this stupid stuff? I am sure people then would have thought no way.

I dont like how people are looked at as 'strange' because they dont have facebook. I recently deactivated mine and I honestly feel free. I'm looked at as weird because of it.

Why would anyone be interested in looking at what people you barely know are doing? Be honest, anyone who has any form of social networking, how many of the hundreds of people you have on your friends list do you actually know?

I can't even buy a bottle of Coke at the supermarket without some stupid advertising logo for facebook. Facebook and Google are so overrated that I don't even use the internet anymore unless I have a little down time.

The internet is a poison waiting to corrupt everyone's mind and those who walk around twittering and texting all day are in complete denial of the real world, aka books, films on tape, and music cds. This media is slowly putting all these old-school media out of business, and until

the internet is shutdown forever,
everyone in the entertainment industry that are trying to sell us physical products will be put OUT OF WORK!

Ditto, agree with almost everything you said, except I did like High School,but keep in touch with just a few,no time for anymore. Besides one conversation with one person(she knows who she is)who is obsessed with FB would fill me in with way tmi,more than ever need or want to know. Also who needs pictures of every single moment of their lives documented, and more importantly who has the time to look at said pictures! Very wise person told me they no longer take pictures, want to enjoy and fully live in the moment. So many peeps are more concerned with getting good pics to put on FB for
people who don't really care, bcause they're too worried
about making their FB pictures look good! If there is life
on other planets they are looking at us and laughing
hysterically! "Look at the humanoids running around on their little FB wheels." Sad.

You are right on point, but same is true with LinkedIn.com and other just websites such Opentable, groupon etc.
Back to Facebook, it is truly meant to be for F**kbook, if you know what I mean. It is a JUNK company and NOT worth a dime, let alone a $40/share or $20 or even $1/share, it is garbage collector company which collects the garbage thrown out by it's members and makes money from the garbage in, garbage out. Dice.com is perfect site replacement to LinkedIn, if you are professional like Lawyers, Doctors, they all have site .com related to the work of choice.
Pooling of Professionals in sites such as LinkedIn.com is very hurtful to business when it comes to competition with two or more person doing the same thing.
Stay away from Garbage, Be Unique !!!

Responding to someone who said "About the Zucky is biggest a**hole of all time" is NOT VERY True.
Instead, I would say that he is "WORLD BIGGEST CONMAN who pulled it off in broad daylight by creating a Crappy website product and Became the man of year in Time magazine and Fooled Millions of investors into thinking it is $100 Billion dollar company and Idiots who shared their private information crazily and openly".
It is a SHAME on Wall Street and other investors who lost money. It is WORLD's biggest Ponzi scheme pulled off Openly in everyone face knowing that it is a Junk, people invested on it. I think such companies should be called Zuckerburg scheme, Z-scheme is now being used by Linkedin, Zynga, Opentable, Groupon and TONS and TONS of bullshit is replicating based on that. Recently, Intagram cashed in quickly, since Z purchased Inst for $1billion. One garbage knows other garbage quickly.

Facebook is so lame that most people know this but won't admit it! I remember when I was in high school just a couple of days before graduation and some of my friends and I were talking to my math teacher. Mind you he is in his mid 20's, so they were talking about friending each other on Facebook before School ended, and I had mentioned that I didn't have a Facebook. Of course, they inquired as to why. After all, they told me how it's fun to check statuses and talk to friends. I told them it was a waste of time and that I wasnt going to fall prey to doing something I didnt want to because of pressure from the masses. IMMEDIATELEY after that, I was being told by my teacher that he didn't go on facebook at all. He just has it in case he "needs" it. My friends agreed with him and answered with a "yea, me too." people with a facebook, please answer me this: do you guys get Facebook because of feeling like an outcast only to realize that it isn't all it was cracked up to be? Or did you get a Facebook because of your own thought processes?

Unfortunately, Facebook and other social media has reduced actual human to human interaction down to a matter of "liking" something another person has posted or disliking something and posting nasty comments in kind. No more having to deal with people face to face, where you might actually get along with somebody. Instead you see all the diarrhea propaganda they eject and you instantly decide that they are of no value. It causes mostly younger people to develop a sheep-like mentality seeking to please their peers, a seething hatred for others or possibly a sense of deep alienation in those who choose not to please the fold. For those who have been around the block, like myself, might call it a bunch of worthless B.S, created to do exactly what it does. Exploit.

Anonymous said...

This article was written in 2009 and as valid in 2015. One thing that is actually good about fb is realizing these things for yourself. When I realized that people on fb are folks with low-self esteem who rely on a facade of self to impress others of their value, it was a great breakthough for me. It made me want to break free from being a phony person myself and cease to be involved in any relations of that kind. I now seek meaning within and seek true friendships that do not require validation through "likes" and lack of critical thought.

Totally agree. Don't need it. Don't need to pretend life is wonderful 24 hours a day and take pictures of my Christmas tree. But...we live in the world of Me me me...look at me...my life is so great. It will get worse the more self absorbed we become I fear.
