An online network that used to be exclusively for college students arranged in networks. Abbreviated FB sometimes. Networks were then extended to high schools and work places. Then users were allowed to create groups amongst themselves. A profile includes pictures of three types: added by the user, posted as the default profile picture (added to a seperate album), or tagged in other user's/groups photos. Birthdate, sexual orientation, relationship status, and location can also be shown. More details can be added in the profile, such as music & TV preferences, interests & activities, work information, and college/high school information and class schedules. Some annoying shit that was omitted from myspace was the height/weight thing (everyone was fucking 8'11 and 350 pounds!), myspace IM, banner ads, the heros section (everyone loved their fucking best friend, no shit we get it), and top friends. It elaborated on myspace by allowing a wall-to-wall view (mini convo), tagged photos, and the comment back feature. Has virtually no spam friend requests wanting you to check out bullshit webcams, unlike other sites. Unlike myspace, Mark Zuckerberg (the creator) does not start out as your friend (a la Tom). Also no crazy layouts and computer slowing shit. Mostly used by college students and high schoolers who plan on going to college. But gay people who don't go to college and dropped out of college and might not even work join, and pull a "No Network" status. Bullshit right thurrr. A stalker's dream because people tend to put better stuff in interests & activities, as well as posting screenames and phone numbers, and people can be tagged in any picture. A great way to keep in touch with people, keep tabs on that certain hot girl who parties a lot, or that hot boy who you happened to catch his name in class and want to add to recognize you exist.

Has a usage as a verb, "to facebook" can be the following:
a.) to post a wall comment
b.) to add as a friend on facebook
c.) To go to someone's profile, look at all their pictures and notice how fucking hot they are, but don't add them. Instead, continue to visit their site and see what they do and if they're still single or not.
d.) message someone on facebook
e.) To veg out bored to death on facebook.

The arbiter of truth.
Q: Where did you learn that?
A: Facebook told me.
Q: Oh well in that case, you must be correct, because facebook is the arbiter of truth.

a tool used to stalk people you are secretly jealous of. a tool to make your grades drop. a tool to keep you locked up in your room all day and feel accomplished. if you stalk someone a lot on it, you feel like you know them. dont let it fool ya, it can be embarrassing when you start a convo with them thinking your their friend when they dont know who you are. epic fail.
"call me mr. facebook, i can make your grades drop"

Facebook is a social utility that fails to connect people due to the lack of actual time spent Facebooking. Chat is a feature that is used to talk in real time, the fun part being waiting to find out if your message will send or not. The best feature of this social networking site is the commodity of alerts that you receive when you click things, telling you "Oops! Something went wrong, we're working on getting it fixed as soon as possible!" When really, the incredible developers are probably working on something like adding more useless emoticons.
When trying to log in to check your mass notification from people commenting 40 times on a status you liked: "Facebook cannot connect to the server."

When talking to that insanely hot girl that you like so much:

Girl: Hey!
You: Hey!
But the awesome thing is, your "Hey!" never sent, you get to sit and watch the "Sending message... Sending message... Sending message..." For the next half hour why the hot girl thinks you're ignoring her.

What was once a beautiful social networking site,
until Mark Zuckerberg changed the layout, not once, (the first time was bad enough) but TWICE.
Most facebook users were starting to get used to the "New Facebook," and then out of nowhere, they changed it again.
The new homepage is very crowded, and it tells us information about other people that we don't even want to know.
There are over 1000 Anti-facebook groups, and over 50 million users in those groups.
The general message:
WE HATE THE NEW FACEBOOK.


You wake up.
It's a sunny 2008 summer. You log onto facebook, and at the top of your screen, it says:
"Soon, the new facebook will be the only facebook. try it now!"

Your thinking- "WTF?"

Then it happens.

There are reactions almost immediatley, and when you click on the group application, all you can see is:

PETITION AGAINST THE NEW FACEBOOK!
1,000,000 STRONG AGAINST THE NEW FACEBOOK!
THE NEW FACEBOOK SUCKS!
CHANGE THE FACEBOOK BACK!
WE WANT THE OLD FACEBOOK BACK!

and so on.


But, eventually, I think most people got used to the new facebook. Everyone still misses the OLD facebook, but we had to adjust.

A couple months later.......

"There will be a new home page coming soon"

Your thinking- "WTF? AGAIN?"

Then it happens. AGAIN.

This new home page is something different- absolutely cluttered with advertisements and useless information that we don't want to know. The home page is full of other people's wall to walls, status updates, and so on. We can barely tell what is what!

Then you click on your profile, hoping they didn't change the profile layout.

and guess what.
THEY DID.

It's just disastrous, what have they done this time?
they've combined the statuses, with the wall posts, with everything else you did.

YOU CAN BARELY TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR OWN STATUS AND OTHER PEOPLE'S WALL POSTS!

Mark Zuckerberg has destroyed Facebook.

Website designed with the sole intention of letting college kids continue to stalk their friends which they "collect", and have a nice network of organizing "parties" which are basicaly a bunch of people who congregate to listen to loud crap ass music with little to do except get shit faced and contract STDs. Oh, and going to such events lets you brag to everyone the next day. Face it, they dont think you are cool. They just laugh and say "yeah I heard that shit was off the hook", and then lose that much more respect for you as a person and trash you behind your back. Facebook is often seen as the "classy" version of myspace. Many think they fact that you are in college automaticaly makes you mature, even though these same people dont realize that facebook is just a prettier spin on the same wierd ass way to waste time known as myspace. People who have facebook acounts generaly think that myspace is "gay" and "sloppy" and they dont use it since it is for "losers who go to highschool." In reality, facebook is the same as myspace, only the freaks who continue to have no lives after highschool dont want to admit that they still spend their time the same way they did when they were kids(collecting friends, leaving comments, "pimping" their profile, and checking up on their EXs, which is stalking in my book) hence the "classy" image and fancier name. Those with facebook accounts ought to be honest with themselves, and realize that facebook is just like myspace, your not cool because you use it, its not only for college students as many highschool and even middle school students are jumping on the train, therefore it is not an elitest group, people with both sides of their brain functioning laugh at you, and if you genuinly use a website like myspace/facebook/ect simply to keep up with friends(notice the lack of quotes, this denotes that you genuinly like these people and they like you back, and you actualy care about them and want to keep in contact) after highschool, there is no reason to not just use myspace. If everyone used myspace, it would be that much simpler, instead of trying to create "societies" online for people with different levels of education and levels of intelligence/actual abilities to bond with people. I.E. People with facebook and or myspace acounts and check them more than every now and then tend to have low intelligence and low ability to make actual friends. Some people actualy have nothing better to do with their lives that they create BOTH myspace and facebook accounts.(see dumbass) These people are clearly to vain and mentaly inept to go have an actualy social life, so instead they sit on their computer and read comments full of acronyms(that make no sense and make you sound like a pre pubescent girl writing a love note) and words like "love" and "adore" which are constantly thrown around and therefore lose their meaning. In short facebook is simply a euphemism for myspace, which tends to be embraced by 18-25 "adults" who enjoy denying the reality of their pathetic lives.
Facebook is like Myspace, only it's more pathetic and its users have a lower average intelligence.
