Bad idea. Soon as others start doing the same on her wall, it will piss you off. They'll do it on purpose too just to make you mad. Facebook does actually ruin some relationships. Especially when you can see everything they Like and comment due lack of security on their part.

That is far beyond what MySpace was able to do in its time. In a world of congested social everything, that really is quite an achievement.

Hmm...it might be because Facebook doesnt really delete your account when you request it.

Um...can we get an Android native app now, please?
Also, the stock is still low.

I don't see any reason for saying "I don't have one" and thinking you're somehow unique . It's like saying, "I don't use a smart phone." Facebook is popular, use it, enjoy it, that's it. No shame in having one.

"Facebook is popular, use it, enjoy it, that's it."
I won't start use it just because it is popular that's not the reason to use something! The same with iPhone, I won't buy one just because it is popular, popularity is not the reason. :)

I'm talking about people who might want to enjoy it, but don't, just so that they say. "I don't use it."
You know what I mean? Like it makes them more cool or something, or unique.

I use facebook because it's an effective way to communicate with friends and relatives scattered all over the world. And yes, the majority of users are not from the U.S.
