First of all, I'm not like doing a commercial for them or saying Facebook is the greatest thing ever. I'm just tired of people saying its all drama or they are sick of reading what someone had for breakfast.
Facebook is what you want it to be and I, for one, LOVE IT! You can pick your friends, pick who's status updates appear on your page, and completely fix it how you want it to be. If one of your friends is all drama, hide them. If someone's status updates annoy you, hide them. If you don't give in to the drama or someone's ridiculous updates then you will have a great time.
I don't live close to any of my family so it's a great way for me to constantly see pictures and videos of my nieces and nephews that I miss so much. Also friends I don't live near. Sure we talk on the phone but Facebook just adds those extras.
Pretty much just telling people to get over themselves. It is what you make it.

 I'm with ya!  Facebook doesn't cause relationships to fail...the people in the relationships cause them to fail!  Facebook doesn't cause drama...the people reading and responding to the posts cause the drama.

I enjoy facebook and I just block or hide the people I don't care to see.

I like it, we use it all the time for work. It helps us with investigations, and can be used as a alibi. I dont understand why ppl complain, if you dont like it, delete your page and move on.

Thats what I use it for too.  I've never had a problem w fb drama that others seem to have.  The most exciting thing that ever happens on my fb is whenever my brother starts dating a new girl he defriends me for a while, lol.  He doesn't like me judging them on their fb pages, which I do, so he's justified in doing that.

I have less drama on my Family page then my Silver Page.. However the Drama on my Silver Page is Professional Drama, Writers acting like children, my GLBT groups having issues with haters, hate groups popping up and needing to be reported.. But I can deal with that kind of Drama.. I love my Facebook and in the process of making a 3rd one, plus a group and Professional page for my Pen name.. The worst Drama i have is remembering which name i am logged in as and who to say what too

I just remove those who incite drama when necessary.  I like being able to keep in touch with family that lives far away.  I am in touch now with cousins and Aunts and Uncles that I barely knew from my dad's side of the family because they are scattered across the country.  OP is right:  FB is exactly what YOU make it.

Instead of blaming others or other things why not be a grown up and take responsibility for ones own actions. Facebook, Email, Internet, Porn, are not the causes of Divorce they are the Excuses used rather then Owning up to ones own Screw ups.

Facebook is not and can not be to blame for what adults do. How can you blame a website for what you did (general you)

Its illogical
