    This is a great post. I could not agree with you more about "vaguebooking". I hate that! What I dislike about Facebook are the ones that continue to complain every single day! I have to (not delete them) unfollow them. And people who constantly post pictures of their dogs! uugh.

    i totally have a love / hate relationship with facebook. Initially i just didn't get it – It felt so public that I never wanted to put anything on there. but then it enabled me to connect up with some relatives who live miles away and we rarely get to see so it is nice to get little glimpses into their lives. My trouble is I can easily get addicted – I found i had 'liked' over 1,500 pages on facebook so it was overwhelming trying to go through my feed so i've got it down to between 500 – 600 now but still tend to avoid going on there too much as it takes me too long to look at everything. x

    Facebook is taking up a lot of my time these days – I find it is very addictive! I do love it though, and I always bear in mind that you can't possibly see everyone else's status all the time, or vice versa, so you have to accept you're only getting a small picture of someone's life (or them of yours). I probably am guilty of over-sharing, but people who don't like it can look away 😉

    I have to admit to having a huge issue with the teaser statuses…. it narks me when people 'don't want to say' despite deciding to take the time to put something which would appear to intentionally demand interest. Aside from that I'm an over-sharer and over-user, content as I can be for people to defriend me or what not. It's fun, as long as you remember people only share what they want- it's not really real life 🙂

    Oh yes, all of those things annoy me too, particularly the ones that don't really say anything, the "oh I can't believe that just happened" with no follow up. What's the point??!

    I have a personally account and a blogger page in Facebook and I'm quite active there. But I try to keep a detached attitude, just because of all that cattiness and the playground attitude. Just not how I want to spend my time.

    I'm a bit up and down with FB. I have a couple of private groups (a writers one and a general chat with old school friends one) that are great, but outside that I only update my status once or twice a week. My friends seem to vary from posting numerous times a day to almost never posting at all! my favourite posts to read are funny ones. I don't like passive aggressive ones like "Oh you just can't trust some people – I'm going to be deleting some of you later today." which make you think 'What?" "Why?" "Who?" Also sometimes I think FB can breed feelings of insecurity when others seem to be living a perfect life! #pocolo

    Very well said! I like Facebook, but don't use it as much as you – I'm more of a Twitter fan. Have never heard the phrase 'vague book' before, but that's the thing that bugs me most of it all. It's just complete attention seeking to see how many people can say 'You ok hun?'. Grrr!

    I just dont like people who take photos of their bag & jewelry collection and post it in FB. Showing off much! You know whats worse, some of the bags are fake! UGH! #pocolo

    I use Facebook mainly to keep in touch with my family who live hundreds of miles away, and friends who are spread across the country. My biggest gripe though is the vague status updates you mentioned. It's a blatant attention-seeking tactic and it really gets on my nerves.
