As you may or may not know, I really hate facebook. I despise it. Maybe I have no reason to feel that way, since I've never actually used it, but it seems like at least once a week I read about someone whose life was ruined by facebook. Sure, most of the time it's their own fault, but even innocent people have lost jobs and such. It boggles me that people who knew ten years ago not to give strangers their real name or address in a chat room, will post that information right on their facebook for the entire world to see.

The other thing I hate about facebook is the way that facebook users tend to exclude non-users. I've had more than one friend tell me that basically they're too lazy to e-mail me, so if I ever want to hear from them, I have to join facebook. I just got a KAJET e-mail, and the ONLY way to RSVP for any of the upcoming activities is through facebook. And I'm sure that from here on, things like career networking will be done more and more exclusively through facebook.

So, I might be getting one soon. :/ *sigh* There are advantages of course, but the severe lack of privacy makes me really wary.
