Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

So I just undeleted my Facebook account (Meiss panics, water still wet)

And I feel nervous, which is absurd. On the one hand, I am relieved, because I would spend so much time refreshing the page and seeing what new thing happened, it would just be me wasting my time. I also had so many statuses blocked that there really was no point in being on there.

This feels weird.

This article gives my primary reasons, and I'm wondering if you all agree with what they say. It gives you 14 days of deactivation, and then it deletes your account, so I might still fall off the wagon!!

    I've been thinking about doing this, but I don't really have any information on my facebook anyway, and it'll probably be less useless once high school is over

    i'm out, follow me on twitter @uninten , steam is GaryMyNemesis

    I wanted to include this except that there really isn't any context to the remarks, as the article says. But it certainly didn't leave me feeling thrilled either.

    I hate that article!

    the dude talks about "his data" like it's Atlantis's lost gold. They're looking at what you post so they can direct ads at you dude. If you don't want to click on ads, don't click on them!

    also he ends by saying waa waa facebook is ugly twitter is better

    facebook is pretty darn useful if you travel

    or if you or your friends have remotely interesting lives.

    Yeah, I can understand people's concerns about facebook's ever changing private policy and them deciding randomly to make all of your photos and status updates public.

    But complaining about targeted ads is pretty retarded when google does the exact same thing.

    I should honestly delete mine. I spend so much time just bullshitting I end up putting off important stuff just to F5 the news feed.

    Then again bullshitting on the internet is something that I just end up doing no matter what. I think if I just got rid of Facebook I would just end up on here or on SA or whatever F5ing threads all day.

    I made a facebook when it was still just for colleges or whatever it was and then barely touched it since but now the data that I really like Total Recall could be used in evil ways.
