Facebook really bothers me and I just saw this great video about why!

Interesting. It's an excellent synopsis on why Facebook sucks, and reinforces the estimation I read recently that FB could lose 80% of its users by 2017.

I've been thinking about deleting mine, but not sure where else I would find my friends/acquaintance's gratuitous self-loathing, self--pity, and cat pictures.

I am really starting to like Twitter. Time order and to the point. Usually fairly funny or interesting too.

The new policies on having to pay for likes and promotion on FB is really driving away a lot of the Bands/Businesses/Etc away from what was originally a really good feature of FB. This is what will really start to kill it once there is an alternative.

That is the problem. Right now. there is no alternative. Twitter sucks and for keeping in touch with large groups of people, FB is the best tool right now.
