Facebook is a waste of time.
What's with the craze about it?
Oh whoopdy-do, I've uploaded pictures of myself that totally look like crap, but I'm gonna put them on anyways, just so my friends, who also have time to waste, can see them!!!
Seriously, what the crap?

I don't have a facebook account.
And at school, it seems like I'm the only one who doesn't.
But I'm proud of that.
I don't want to post pictures of myself online.
Because internet stalking, then, would be child's play.

Also, my dad told me about this story about a woman who go a professional photographer to take her pictures, and she put em on facebook.
And in these pictures, she was naked.
(In the one mentioned, she was naked, but descrieatly.)
So, these pictures, technically, were now facebook property.
So, they sold her photo to an enema company, and used her picture in an add in the newspaper.
Her dad saw her picture, and was not impressed.
Even though they both knew it was her, the company put some phony name instead of hers.
So, her picture, was no longer her property.

So, all in all, I think facebook is pointless.
And if I ever got an account, I would put "MyNameHere thinks facebook is a waste of time" by the status thing.

However, I do not hate facebook.
I just think DA is a better place to waste time in.
(Here, copywrites apply to all artists, and cannot be sold to enema companies.)
But, I know a lot of people like facebook.
So, facebook lovers, if you have time, watch this: [link]

This stamp is on a role.

Thanks ~yumijanine!

[EDIT] {3}
There are generally two types of comments I've been getting on this piece.
One saying "Yay, I agree. :dummy:", and the other is a long, drawn out explanation why I am apparently wrong, and why the commenter uses facebook.
I have heard all possible Facebook support arguments before.
I respect your opinion, but its not going to change mine any time soon.
I regret nothing in creating this stamp.
Have a nice day.
Anyone who henceforward leaves a long, drawn-out comment trying to defend Facebook on this stamp, will get the above message copied and pasted as my reply.

I hardly go on Facebook anymore, and I only really use the messenger app to talk to people.

I'm entirely sympathetic to your point of view and have been teasing my wife for her dedication to Facebook. Yes, I understand the idea of keeping in touch with friends and family but more often than not the personal "news" put up there is petty. Too many people who have accomplished nothing noteworthy in their lives use Facebook to draw attention to themselves--unwarranted attention. Sad. It's, "Look at me! Look at me! I have an idiotic selfie I want the world to see," or "I have an idiotic uninformed opinion!" My wife can't tell true news from fake news, thanks to Facebook: "Mars will be in opposition tonight and as big as the full moon in the sky!"  And I'll say nothing about the vicious personal attacks encouraged by this medium, or the potential damage that can be done to relationships when one's significant other insists on staying in touch with former dates, lovers, boyfriends/girlfriends, etc.  All in all, like you, I'm very proud to avoid that particular manifestation of social media and feel sorry for the sheep who feel they can't do without it.

One good thing I can say about it, though, is that the quality of photos--I don't mean moronic selfies; I mean real photographic art by talented photo-artists--that I've seen there is often even better than the impressive work we find here on DA.

I dunno, I use it to follow various science/skeptic group, learned a lot about quackery and how to avoid it that way.
I hated it even before it was cool.

It didn't used to be, but now I agree. It's become to invasive and too overwhelming to follow. If it weren't for certain friends who can't text me or aren't on here, I wouldn't have it. 
VortexSupernova Featured By Owner Edited Apr 25, 2016  Student General Artist
I only have an FB account to (1) keep in touch at family and (2) to ask my stupid classmates about their contributions in the upcoming projects. The things I like in Facebook are funny pictures and online collaboration. Also you won't git a copyright strike unlike the worse YT

the thing i hate in Facebook is that it is commercial and it sells ALMOST EVERYTHING in you--lol do you know their hidden transactions? ;) ALSO THE STUPID SELFIES OF DUCKFACE AND OTHER $#!T THAT ANYONE THINKS ARE DECENT. last time i used it 2 months ago

I have a Facebook account, but I almost never use it, because it's stupid. I was basically pressured into having one, because hey! That's what all the cool kids do, right?

Facebook gave me suicidal thoughts twice before.

I'm so glad I quit.

Holy shit! Another reason to hate it. :facepalm:
MinionPox Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2015  Student General Artist
Yep. I hate Facebook by a ton. I keep telling my Mom that I don't want it again for what it had done to me.

And plus, I don't want to see the gullible fools that fall for EVERY SINGLE FREAKING ARTICLE that they have in front of their faces on there.

I agree. Also, one butthurt claim that Facebook rocks. I told him it sucks, but he went butthurt and had to made a shitty FB support stamp.
MinionPox Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2015  Student General Artist
Wow. Guess that's more proof that Facebook is for a bunch of idiots. :facepalm:

I'm not here to defend facebook, just to defend the people who use it for good. If someone can get real inspiration, meaning and/or connection through facebook, then it certainly is not a waste of time. In Lak'ech Ala K'in:iconbowplz:

a well done stamp, and actually, I have deleted my facebook account when I have discovered that I was wasting my time on it in 2009.

Facebook is overrated. That much is true.

Sorry but at some point in life you will need Facebook. It's very important during eduation and careers. I have to use Facebook a lot during university. Facebook sucks, but it isn't pointless.

Still don't have one and doin' fine.

My fucking Mom plays those stupid Facebook games, and she thinks IMVU is slowing down her computer.. When I always say

"Well look at those games you play on Facebook, I'm pretty sure that's the reason why your laptop is slow. So, don't talk about IMVU, and I won't talk about your Facebook."

And plus she wants me to post pictures on there, when I clearly tell her, I do not like Facebook. When will the message get to her? I think never.
moshimo Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
The only reason I made an account was so that I could keep in touch with my family. At the time, there was a chance that I might get into university (which hasn't happened) and Facebook seem to be the only thing they're using. The only times I use it are to comment on the occasional thing and to play Angry birds. Honestly, I don't think it's that bad but I can see why some people would be anti-facebook.
IllusionVirus Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013  Student General Artist
Yep. Facebook is a really messed-up site once you think about it.
I prefer Tumblr, YouTube, and dA all the way.
Chlorophylltheleaf Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Well, actually, I have already deactivate my facebook since I don't find anything useful there.
I still prefers to DA, thought. If I want to connect to my friend, I can use the Skype instead.

So, well yeah...I agree with your opinion.
Thanks for made this.

Why make an account, when, I can just read this? It is a waste of time, and judging from reading/watching the dangers on the internet, draws, me even further from joining. This is so going on, my page. Thanks for making it.

BlueSolitaire Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Agreed. I am only on there to keep up with one certain person, not to play games or put up photos. (I used to have photos but I found out (as you pointed out) that FB can take anybody's photos and use them to their purpose, whatever that might be. NOT GOOD, as some of my photos are on here and other sites as prints.) Mom got hacked and had to deactivate...hacker turned her account into "Facebook Security" with weird lettering and is still playing her games so that others think she's still there. That A-hole...) I'm ready to leave FuckBook FakeBook myself. I'm on there like twice a month so why bother? So I hear ya. :nod:

I love the stamp that says "FaceBook....Eating Lives One at a Time" :XD: how true. it won't get MINE! :la:

I don't typically consider something that makes someone happy to be a waste of time. And I don't particularly care what people do with their time, either. I don't think Facebook is wrong, but it's a huge website, so of course there will be users who abuse it, like in your little sob story... it happens. Someone could steal a photo off of DeviantArt and do the same exact thing, so it's not necessarily Facebook's fault, it's people's fault.

im the only one in my class who doesnt have a facebook account too for me facebook is really a waste of time very nice stamp
Pukichu187 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
The website called "Facebook" is actually the website to Connect with your family and Friends.

You can play games in Facebook too.

So please. Stop hating Facebook :(
ichijyushi Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013
Oh yes, the so called games that you need 1,000 friends in order to play.

Those aren't real games, go to Newgrounds or something like that, those are real games.

And I will hate on Facebook all I want, too many art thieves there.
