Is Facebook more trubole and can cause more trubole than it's worth? ?i have been on facebook for a year and a half now i find my self always checking it while i do my home business, and even checking it when i am away from home on my cell phone i have to say i just might be addicted and i have heard many others say the same thing like others, i am thinking about closing my account and concentrating on my life instead of someone i passed in the hallway back in highschool i am a 43 year old male with a 43 year old fiance that i have been with for 2 1/2 years now my fiances 22 year old daughter in college and texted her mom today telling her i am on facebook (she knows this and i have not hid it from her) my fiance has not gotten on facebook because she thinks it is silly! i got on it to find old marine corp buddies, and old friends and it has been great getting in contact with them and have gotten together with a couple when i first got on i just accepted a whole batch of about 100 friend requests i was stupid and noticed that some i only knew slightly, and some of their friends i didn't even know friended me (i think i was trying to build my friendship number to feel good about myself or make it look like i had soooo many friends to who might look me up) i didn't get on face book to look up old girlfriends or cheat on the love of my life my fiance started grilling me about face book tonight things like, why do you have so many friends on there (i have 173) why did my daughter tell me you are a friend with someone she knows? i told her i don't know that person and it might have been someone i accepted in a whole batch of requests i looked up the name tonight and it is a friend of one of mine, so they were what i call friend collecting i really think i need to reassess this whole facebook thing first of all i don't need to know if some one just ate or has a cold second of all, now i think my fiance and her daughter think i am somehow messing around or something i am trying to decide to deactivate my account and drop it all or drop everyone that really is not a true friend and shorten up my friend list considerably i have not trolled on facebook looking to hook up and would never think of it BUT, then i sit here and think about how i would feel if the love of my life had 173 friends on face book that were women and MEN i am not sure i would be upset, but i am getting an understanding why she would! has any of you been through what i am going through? what did you do to break your social network addiction before it ruins what is really important to you?
