Seems like every social event I go to, Facebook seems to get mentioned at least once.

"Did you see my picture on facebook?"
"Oh she messaged me on facebook"
"This is so going on facebook"
"I've been playing this game on facebook"

facebook... facebook... FACEBOOK!

What do you hate most about the site?

For me it has to be that a lot of people think facebook is the internet.

One of the things would be people posting updates relating to things happening in their life that should not be shared online anyway.. Also people getting tagged in photos of shoes or clothes something I have to hide just about everytime I log into Facebook..

Aside from 'everything', all the news feed drama, random, awful excuses for games (that try and wrangle as much irl money out of you as possible (like on mobile gaming)) and getting invited to play them, the horrendous cookies FB puts on your pc that tracks you. That's all I can think of atm.

I hate the fact that I have to use the website. I would prefer not to use the site where I am bombarded with all the things people are doing, because I just don't care. However, it's the easy way to get in touch with people. It was Facebook that helped me find this website.

Bascially everyone on the Jeremy Kyle show. (Yes I sometimes watch it for the LOLZ), and they always mention facebook all the bloody time.

Problem with Facebook for me is the commercialisation of it all. Just there is so many adverts sponsored posts. When I first started using it Facebook was more focused on the actual users rather than pages, and the adverts were kept to a minimum on the side bar.

Whereas now when I go on Facebook all I see is an advert for odeon and then it says like John Smith and six others like this.

The main thing I use facebook for now is messaging friends as some people don't have unlimited texts, and I don't want to give my phone number to some people. I don't mind using it, but I don't use facebook for it's original purpose anymore in terms of status updates and sharing photos.

Everything I see now seems to be reposts of memes, or things like "the lad bible", or some random stupid viral video. seems to have gone beyond game invites for me now.

Ah yes, 'lad bible'... I hate that so much... That and another of your points... meme reposts. I used to see random posts from my friends posting stuff from 9gag... that I'd seen 1-2 weeks earlier on imgur, for the 2nd time. Old posts getting reposted multiple times, then to reddit, then to 9gag, then to facebook, then back to imgur *again*... *sigh*

That it exists?
I recall when the whole MySpace rubbish first started, many people took the <swear> out of those who used it. Nowdays, everyone seem to use the whole Social Media rubbish.

No Facebook, I do not want to know what Amy from Secondary School is doing today nor the fact that Louise is having her third kid. What's that? Jason is upset that something on TV has ended? WHO CARES!

While I have an account, I never login (well I haven't for at least 3 years now).
Constantly get Facebook "notification" emails about what "People are talking about" or to "See what they've written on my wall". Don't forget the "You have X friend requests" and "Do you know..." ones too!

Honestly, if I could remember my password (or cared enough to recover it) I'd close my account.
I think I have some issues to work out in regards to Facebook *whistles*
