Confirm Facebook Account Deactivation

Please let us know why you are deactivating. (required)

_O_ I don't find Facebook useful.

Please explain further:

"Facebook is like a creepy and pointless videogame where people collect every person they've ever met, then waste their time spying on all the dumb bullshit they do all day. I don't care if some moron I went to high school with bought a new iPod, I don't want to play the vampire biting game, and I don't want people I don't care about to know what I'm up to if they're not going to bother asking me with words."

-------------------------------------------

You ever hear that Beach Boys song "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times?" Yeah.

i wish i could brush off facebook like that... being a high schooler though, it's sort of integral to the whole social hierarchy and whatnot. It is like a stupid game, I'll admit.

btw, I love your music! do you ever play shows in the nyc area?

Wallsy said...

Worse than that, it's a creepy and pointless videogame where the interface and controls were designed by someone who'd never actually played a videogame before.

I tried to sign up for it once (I forget why) and just filling in my account details was so annyingly inconvenient that I deleted my account before I'd even done anything with it.

And from what I hear, it was a lucky escape.

I quit earlier this year until a large cohort of my friends forced me back on. Now I just don't visit it, further infuriating them.

Still, a move that is probably for the best.

Adam said...

I've decided Facebook is suffering from some kind of retarded, as are most of the people on it. If I get one more fucking electronic plant that's supposed to somehow save the rain forest, I am going to set the entire country of Brazil on fire.

deckard said...

I'm pretty much just on Facebook now to play Scrabulous. It also serves as a handy birthday-reminder, although it has the inconvenient feature that 98.3% of the birthdays it reminds you about are people you don't care about enough to wish happy birthday.

frogboots said...

i don't do facebook. at all. no account, no nothing.

what for?

i have not heard that beach boys song but: the title speaks to me.

i'm about ready to throw my cellphone in the toilet, too (and it is my only form of telephony).

did i ever tell you that you're my hero, joe mathlete?

Andrew said...

What does it say about me that the best thing I can think to do with this is share it on Facebook?

keatonkeaton999 said...

WANNA ADD ME TO YOUR FRIENDS LIST JOE????

Wildwings79 said...

Amen brother!

Kim said...

"didn't know how to email you"

Marmaduke explained is hilarious still. the Disney one was amazing. My favorite was the bone in the toaster.
I laughed really hard the first time I looked at it, and every other time I looked at it.

Bug said...

I had a similar experience with rants and raves on craigslist. And subsequently myspace. I did, however, have fun for a while as a cowboy hat-wearing dancing amoeba. That was ok.

Seriously, now, is Robot McGee single?

/Martens said...

A few of my colleagues realized the other day what facebook will become.

In the future, the "internet" will no long exhist. It will be Facebook. Every website that is will be converted into an application.

Internet browsers will be a thing of the past, and there will just be the simple Facebook program.

Note: We did not say this out of appreciation. We are scared shitless.

Bug said...

PS. Kim... Tunacorn is prolly the most awesomest animal ever. even cooler than a liger. sweet.

Clifford said...

hey good job on that panel, you were by far the most palatable personality. No way I would have checked it out if it wasn't for you though. I'm glad you're not the Chuck Norris joke guy. And I'm glad you hate Family Guy and have little to do with gender discussions.

Kate said...

Funny, just this morning, I decided to deactivate my account as well, for that exact reason. I don't have that much fun watching my old high-school boyfriend salving his mid-life crisis by cruising Facebook.

Jennifer said...

I agree...I don't get Facebook!

Okie said...

great comment....I doubt they ever will, but I'd be curious to read their response if they ever respond.

Katie cat said...

haha very funny... facebook is crazy!

Net Adventure said...

Could not agree more. I cringe thinking about the facebook experience, but I have to log in because I need the networking part of it for my business. http://www.netadventurestore.com

Miss Attitude said...

I love the blog! I don't get Facebook either, although I have to confess I was anti-MySpace too until a few months ago.

Chelsea Bass said...

I love Facebook, actually. If you don't like it, though, I wouldn't get MySpace. It's much worse.

Joe Mathlete said...

Believe it or not, I've got not much of a problem with MySpace. It makes sense to me as someone in a band. The banner ads are annoying as hell and getting spam friend requests from robots pretending to be titty girls who want to sell you ringtones is mildly irritating, but it's way less impersonal/creepy/1984 than Facebook.

Sean Bernardino said...

Haha, this is the funniest post I've read in a long time. And no, i'mnot mocking this post, in fact I quite love it. I'll be honest, I'm on Facebook myself, am now thinking differently. Well said.

eisey said...

kind make sense ;o)

be safe and god bless you sir...

Holy Moly said...

But how else will we be informed that our ex-boyfriends have changed their status to “in a relationship” (whilst we are still very much not over them), or that somebody we went to school with but never actually spoke to wants to engage in a game of scrabulous, or indeed, that somebody we genuinely didn’t realise we were facebook “friends” with has changed their profile picture.

Sarcasm aside, it’s thoroughly addictive. We’re talking crack addictive, not just any old addictive.

Dave Robson said...

If I ever deactivate my facebook, I fully intend on going out in legendary style like you did! Good work! However..."I don't want people I don't care about to know what I'm up to if they're not going to bother asking me with words''.......didn't you just announce that you had left facebook on a blog, to people you probably don't care about? ;-)

Sarah said...

well said! same thing with myspace, imho

Skip said...

If you think Facebook's weird (never tried it) have a look at what was a useful networking site till they changed the name to OKCupid and called it a dating site.
On second thoughts, don't...it can be highly addictive. I'm over it now though. Honest. (Well, maybe a quick peek wouldn't hurt. Something might pique my interest. It's not the peak of my ambition mind you...)

Jessica said...

yeah most sites is like dat u just add everyone den das it =\ kinda boring after a while seen da same thing over and over

Intenseblogs said...

i dont like facebook.. or myspace.. i used to have myspace but i deleted my account coz its just boring

yvette said...

I found this amusing because I don't know who you are and find myself caring what you are doing (hence reading your blog) but yet not asking you with words... I congratulate you on your facebook deactivation, but does this mean you will deactivate your blog? If that's the case... can I have your email and that way I could use words to ask you what you are up to!

MarkyB said...

I've never heard facebook described better!

SluggerWV said...

A better characterization of facebook has likely never been written. Well played.

Dan Fabrizi said...

i believe facebook is a great resource. it is useful to keep in touch with people you may have lost with in the past as well as can be used as a great networking tool for your business. Some people think its stalkerish and some people feel it has a certain VQUZESHUF to it.

BeccaMae said...

Facebook isnt bad at all. If you are careful what you do and all that then you dont have anything to worry about.

Jasmine Denise said...

I love facebook!
I moved away right after college and I have to make sure people know I'm doing so much better than them ;)
J/K But as someone who must know what certain people are doing, it's a gossip must!

However, my goal is to detox by...28, maybe.

I am Jenn said...

You are soooo right! Facebook is creepy. I actively use myspace (and other specific social networking sites for **networking** but facebook.. OMG you cant network.. you can just play these weird games with people. .. and your comments on other people's profiles are viewed by everyone... creepy. what a dangerous way to network. Its marketing genious for the Facebook folks! Even more so than Myspace.. So much of course Myspace has jumped on the applications bandwagon... EWWWW

i have facebook. but i log on once a month to notify people of something important... you know.. i'm on some website... won some contest..blah blah blah

good job deleting. you are soo cool!

Jelly said...

oh facebook.

what a complete malarky.

Just a Teen said...

I did not even know that you could delete your facebook. I simply thought that once you got on it, that's it, you're on for good. To some degree I agree with you, but I also beg to differ. Facebook is what you make of it, so if you spy on people on it, well, that's creepy. But I almost never use it for that, instead, I use it for catching up with friends, or looking back on fond memories, or looking up when the next party is. However, I am a highschooler, so it probably serves much more purpose to me rather that to you.

Annes Aeon Lane said...

Well said Joe! I loathe Facebook. My roommate who vowed to deactivate her account couldn't even stay off of it for good.
Websites like Facebook and MySpace make the world smaller and yet more impersonal. I feel bad for people who go out on first dates; they must have nothing to talk about because every picture they've ever taken, all their interests and their social lives are all laid out there on a website for everyone too see. And they usually just end up looking completely ridiculous, what with all of their add-ons like "coolness rating" and "do you have a crush on me?" and drunken pics.
Some things should just be avoided.

Love your blog, btw.
