    I like to refer to Facebook as FBook...
    Sounds seedy and non family friendly.

    I have to say some people I know in the groove refute Facebook as a fad vs. a necessity of the internet.

    When Facebook started I couldn't use it if I wanted to. It was only for students at that time.

    I believe it was whenever anyone was allowed to use Facebook, not just students.

    I don't remember exactly what date that happened.

    I'm on FB and honestly its useful. I wont knock it. Even my some of my aunts/uncles in their eighties just started on it. It's great way to keep in touch. Forget the games and those stupid news feed and adverts. You just have to fiddle around with the settings and you'll find its ain't so painful to use.

    Well, some of you reminded me of how FB has turned into some kind of propaganda machine where people post political stuff and things they think matter much (I'm an easterner, but I have many western friends - I've seen too many different opinions, some of them are a little too harsh/ ignorant). I just think I could've done much more important things without being distracted by it. I'm still looking for another way to keep in touch with people that matter by the way.

    Edit: It's not like the East vs the West, it's more like everyone thinks they're always right on the internet.
    I moved everyone I know on Skype :P

    Around 2007-2008 if my memory serves me right.

    I'm on Facebook but mostly use just the messenger service as most of my friends use that to communicate. I rarely post though. I probably just check the feeds once in awhile and exit

    Never thought of using it, but my youngest son forced me because he needed something for his "farm" so he created an account fot me out of my name just for his "farm" hahaha now i am using it as a shout out to my relatives and friends. Al wat i post there is set as private only "friends" can watch or comment. Okay, i know that private and facebook not going well together. So yea i use FB but not on a daily routine.

    Good luck. It entails a certain amount of weaning at first. Be patient! ;)

    Not like an addiction per se (I was not a power user in any way) but losing the habit.

    I'm still on facebook. I find it really convenient to keep in touch with relatives around the world be it seeing what they have to share (random moments, pics etc) or just messaging/group messaging.

    I haven't used facebook since 1yrs. All credit goes to WhatsApp.
    Though I do use Facebook messenger app, as few of my buddies still like to be with feature phone.
