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.
