Facebook...Becoming more senseless than convenient

I joined facebook as a way to stay in contact with family whom I don't see very often, or some family members who I recently found out about. It was my way of connecting with those who have a blood connection with me. But as the success of facebook has increased, I am finding that people, adults and children alike, are using it as a way to instigate fights that are completely unneccessary. 

I just deactivated my account because I'm sick and tired of the "cyber behavior" of people. I mean, people are starting arguements with each other over fricking facebook! Since it is completely impossible to communicate with people anymore, facebook is officially gone from my life. No more.

Honestly, I have a friend who not-so-subtley lets everyone know when she and her huband have done the dirty deed. Just the other day, she made weird posts about having diarrhea and mixing pills with alcohol.

Anyone who's on facebook has most likely seen posts that neither use proper english or make any kind of sense whatsoever. Or, go something along the lines of this: "My stomach hurts" I'm done with all that.  I think facebook is just unneccessary. 

I apologize to anyone who adores FB, but this is my opinion. I'm certainly not going to stand by looking at the posts where someone is ignorantly attacking another person because they made a little comment. C'mon, people.

Uh...it's not facebook you should be complaining about. It's the people who are on your friends list.

Why not just unfriend those that are causing trouble for you?  Then you can still keep in contact and share pictures with family and friends, but not have the dramatics there.

I like FB even though I'm not fond of all the changes.  When there someone whose posts start to annoy me, I just set it so their posts don't show in my news feeds.  I also have certain people blocked from seeing my status posts.  It keeps the drama down.

I think Facebook is what people make of it, just like CM. If you don't like those friends, then un-friend them. Just like if I don't like a group on CM, then I leave it.

I don't have a problem with FB. I ignore posts from people who annoy me. Problem solved.

I don't have these issues either. I don't understand how you could have these issues on a site you have full control of. It makes no sense.
