    Default If you aren't *on* Facebook

    When you say you aren't *on*Facebook, do you mean you don't have an account or you have one and just don't use it?

    I always assumed it meant you don't have an account - or at least had one and deactivated it - but I know someone who maintains that because she doesn't use her account it means she isn't on FB.

    I have a de-activated account I haven't been "on" in 2 years. I say I don't use it not that I'm not on it.

    I had one too but deactivated it early January because I was dragged into someone else's drama. So I contacted who I really wanted to stay in contact with have them my email account and my Instagram account and my mobile number. I haven't been back since. Seriously though the amount if high school drama that involves adults was incredible. Even today I was sitting in a coffee shop having lunch with dh and I overheard a conversation between a mother and her daughter. Daughter being around 30. And the daughter said to the mother "see that comment just below yours it's totally directed at you. You should blah blah blah" right then I tuned out and realised how wonderful and less negative my life is now I'm not on there. I found it to be too negative and trying to "keep up with the joneses" or the pity parade of oh my gawd I'm in struggle street again. My boyfriend of 2 weeks just dumped me blah blah blah. Our real true friends are the people we talk to all the time. We post too much information about ourselves on Facebook. Our children. Our woes. Our problems. What was life before Facebook. Yes we have been reacquainted with long list high school friends. But after a few messages of catch up do we really need to know when they had their last period? Sorry if I've offended anyone but I really think Facebook is evil. Yes there are some positives bit I watch my teenagers struggle daily with social acceptance and their social anxiety looking constantly at being accepted by everyone. When ultimately do we really need to be loved by everyone?

    I haven't always had one and if it wasn't for the distance we live away from family I probably wouldn't have got one. I have only friends and close family on there. True friends, no one from town and no one I wouldn't chat to socially.

    I have an account but say I'm not really on there. I can't access it (phone needs update and no wifi at home) and I just dislike fb. Generally feel better about the world in general without it! So yep, op, I'm one who technically 'has' an account but tells people I'm not on there!

    I deactivated my account well over a year ago.

    I believe that Facebook can be an incredible way of keeping in contact with distant family and friends but, personally, I found it to be 99% BS. I really don't care about what you ate, when you last went to the toilet or the fact your 1 week 'relationship' ended (you <--general you).

    So, more to the point. I say I'm not on Facebook.

    But you could just delete those people or block them from your newsfeed?

    Unfortunately that would only leave maybe 2 people on my friends list.
