All detractors aside, like "facebook limbo" or "purgatory" and other human garbola, I've been enjoying seeing different sides of people I know from work, church, or the discussion forums, thngs I wouldn't have perceived otherwise.
I've also been enjoying the opportunity to play Scrabble, daily, and reluctabtly the knockoff (Words with Friends).
Yeah, it has a few cons, but the pros far outweigh those cons.
My facebook hasn't changed at all?! I don't understand what all the fuss is about :s
I suspect that you speak for the vast majority of people who have 'experienced FB. I've never joined because I really don't need another time-suck and the bi-monthly re-arrangement of their privacy controls (followed quickly by their spin-doctors trying to make it seem that their legions really are not overly exposed to scammers) left me feeling a bit exposed.
However, I suspect that for someone who has reasonable self control, FB would be extremely useful. When my wife & I start to travel extensively, I plan to join to share experiences w/ friends.
As Thez noted, there are other concerns for those within corporate confines. Were I still there, I wouldn't consider FB ...
CNBC did a slideshow of user-generated protests - some are quite humorous ...

Self-control is definitely a must. I can't stand the advertizing but it's unavoidable in our society, no matter where we go or what we use.
BTW, I'm limiting myself to FB. I don't use Twitter or Myspace and although people have been adding me to Google+ and Linkedin not doing much of anything with them. There's way too much to be involved with!
