LOVED that last cartoon!!! For all too many, FB is a way to avoid having a real life!

You are very welcome!!!!

I'm on Facebook a lot. It is a huge link to the world for me as a stay at home mom. It allows my to share my kids with my family & friends who are not close enough to visit. I am selective about who I am friends with and usually don't notice if I get defriended. I have the mindset that if you cannot be an adult & agree to disagree or at least be civil then you don't need to be my friend. :-) You want to love up on my kids and follow my crazy life then welcome aboard. :-D

I've been quick on the unsubscribe and unfriend button. One inkling of drama, and I'm gone. People using their status updates as personal journals? Attention whores, who seemingly just like to see their own font on a page. People who never have anything nice to say? Toast. People who the 1st time you disagree w/ them. and get their panties in a wad, and have their family/friends attack, albeit asinine comments or a barrage of messages? Lame!

I love reading ppl's posts. I take an interest in their lives, and they usually take an interest in mine. A good political debate? Bring it on! Pic and postings of what's news? Love it? Ppl who get offended by my content/comments, and feel the need to edit my content? Deleted. And so on. FB is a fun outlet for me. And anytime it becomes less than that, I take whatever steps necessary to return it to what I enjoy.

Murder over being unfriended??? Insane! It wouldn't even cross my mind. I've had plenty of ppl unfriend me for one reason or another. I wish them well, and view their action as a blessing in disguise. 'nuff said;)

I'm not on facebook, but man that was brilliant!!! : )

I do not keep an eye on how many friends I have on facebook. I could be unfriended by someone and not even realize it...I just don't care. If you don't want to be my friend, whatever.
It amazes me how many people base their worth on the number of facebook friends they have. I love facebook for keeping up with family, seeing everyone's pictures of their children, vacations, etc. but it is not my life.
I also use it to keep myself informed of upcoming concerts (I "like" the pages for the local venues). I try not to get political on Facebook because I don't like the drama that comes with it anymore.
So...if anyone unfriends me, please excuse me if I don't get upset, or even notice. It's not you, it's me.

PS Linda, I loved your vacation pics. Waiting till my grandson is another year older and then I am going to "kidnap" him and either take him on a Disney cruise or to Disneyworld.

A lot of unhinged people out there. That poor baby is now an orphan and for what? Because someone was pissed off that his parents were not not talking to them? She should be arrested as an accessory as well. Stretch the law, I don't care. Because she is dangerous to society.

I have to admit that I love Facebook - I love the ability to connect with old friends and to make new ones (DGMSers) but cannot understand anyone who makes it their entire life. I love the support that I received when my husband was facing very serious surgery and love giving my prayers and good wishes to others facing issues in their life. My life revolves around my kids, my husband, my family and my friends. If someone wants to defriend me - go ahead! I cannot understand anyone who would harm someone else for defriending!

Oh.My.Gawd. How dare you defriend me because I posted that anyone who votes for Mitt Romney is a douchebag and, in turn, I asked you to bring some facts to the table on why you support Santorum (other than, "what has Obama done for ME lately"), and you called me out on the fact that Liberals are nothing but Baby Killers and I asked you if that's what you thought PRO CHOICE meant, but you responded with, "I don't want my taxes" to go higher and when I asked what the F you were talking about, you said, "Obama is going to take away my right to bear arms", and I said [sarcastically], "gee, that's exactly what he intends to do on his 4 years +1 day in office, it was all a ploy to get your hunting rifle", and you accused me of being anti American and I said, "WTF, you are totally off topic, and what in God's name are you babbling about?" Then you accused my friend Mark of being a Socialist and me of being a Marxist, and I replied, "can't we all just get along"...and THEN you defriended me.

Yes, this happened to me :O) But Mark and I had a really good laugh about it :O)

Well said my friend, well said!

Perfect post Linda!!! I have to call my daughter every once in a while to let her know that she doesn't have to post every facet of her life on Facebook.....all those people on your "friends" list are not your true friends and can turn on you in a heartbeat. In her case....w/a jerk of an ex-husband...you don't want to be airing crap for everyone in the universe to see. It may come back to bite you in the ass.

This whole story sickened me, but how could anyone, shoot a woman holding an infant? What kind of f***ing cold-hearted monster do you have to be? And for defriending on FB? I'm just without words on this one.

Side note: Loved all the picture inserts, but LOL'd at the "my doctor says I need to lose weight or I could die.." Hysterical!!
