I really kind of love and hate facebook. It's a lightweight gateway to be hilarious with new and old friends and acquaintances with whom you maybe want to have a closer relationship. It also makes it incredibly easy to go RAH RAH RAH in a public way to my friends who rocked my world recently, and for that I think it's the best thing ever. "I think this person is THE SHIT" is a sentiment that I believe should be shouted from rooftops. :)

On the other hand, when people expect me to be *available* there, it's really noxious, even though private info about me isn't really a concern of mine (my profile is my stage persona). A comment by me on someone's wall post is not the same as 'reading all available content while visiting fb', because it's frankly impossible, and not displayed in any kind of useful way. Just because I said, "that was the funniest picture ever" does not mean I even saw what's been posted on my *own wall*. The user interface just isn't that good, to be honest.

I also really loathe that people try to contact me for business related things on fb, because fb is not reliable or predictable in how it delivers content, and also... it's a social networking toy, NOT a business medium. I can't sort or store anything sanely, so it's useless for managing business communication.
