    I recently got off Facebook. Didn't see the point of it anymore.

    Looking at Windows Phone home screen shots, I noticed not a lot of people have Facebook pinned on their home screens.

    Is there a lot of Windows Phone users still on there?

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean. I'm not saying people shouldn't use it because I don't. It's just that I found it interesting that I didn't see a lot of Facebook apps on their home screen and I was wondering if there were a lot of people who quit like me :)

    I am on Facebook, but to be honest, I really sort of dislike it, but kind of feel obligated to use it. Family, especially those out of town use it to keep in touch with me. Also, I'm in a local band, a lot of the area musicians use Facebook to network.

    I quit using Facebook before I even started using Windows Phones. It's been over 3 years since I deleted my Facebook account. I got sick of all the Farmville game requests that were so popular back then, so I got rid of Facebook completely.

    Are you on Facebook
    I quit around 2 years ago.
    Hanging out here is enough internet time for me.

    The wife is on FBook constantly with the games.
    I'm the one that got her started...

    Yeah I eventually may do that with my own music but for the moment I do it mostly with Twitter. I kept my Facebook account opened for that reason at first but given I never have time to record proper demos, I just ended up using it for negative stuff (political messages, news from around the world, etc.). I think too much of that is not good for the brain.

    TBH I only use FB to stay in contact with two groups (fan base; sports team) and I use messenger the most to stay in contact with some of my classmates, especially for the cases where I miss class because of work.. I use a lot of apps, but don't actually pin them anymore, unless it can give me vital information that I need to have at a glance, otherwise swiping right and tapping on the letters works well for me. Plus it gives me an excuse to keep my brain active, instead of just unlocking the phone and forgetting what I was looking for, because I have 10 other things on my mind

    You could've blocked the requests :D or was that option only added recently?

    Cortana bugs me daily to do my "chores" (Which means all my tasks and projects), so I end up doing them anyways.. Good practice for when I end up getting hitched xd

    I am On it .. Facebook is just a virtual way to express things is more lazy way but more constructively if used right .. There are things you can't do in normal way .. I u deal with any info or things that u need to deliver to group of people .. U may use way diff from the FB .. But fb delivers much easier way .. Some people get overwhelmed by fb and over react in and with it ... Remember you who has the controller.. U choose what to do in fb and when and how to use it .. But others are used by facebook to act in virtual way .. And tell me what do u use to do what fb users do instead .. ( I mean normal not addicted one ;) )

    Too bad Cortana can't take me by the arm.
    Show me what should be done first.
    Point out which items are best for the assignment.
    Then help me understand why this needs doing right away.

    K back to Facebook
    I don't think I'll ever return :)

    What in this post makes you want to quit FB?

    For me it had a lot to do with negativity and, of course, this:

    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.
