    Don't blame facebook for this. There are plenty of free game sites out there which can time/money suck people just as well.

    For those who are barraged with game requests form "friends" explain to them that they can create specific friends lists and to put you on the NO NOTIFICATION list. The only two people I am friends with whom I get requests from are my choldren's mothers-in-law. Everyone has tactfully suggested it to them but they just don't want to bother. Since it's only those two, and they are family now, I just ignore the requests.

    There have also been a few women that have friended me and a bazillion others, whether they knew us or not. I believe that they are lonely women, based upon listing themselves as single and interested in men.

    I have no FB friends from work except my boss. My company has extremly strict social media rules. my boss and I are friends in the real world as well and we are able to both post to FB without a single mention of work other than a simple "boy I'm tired, was a long week' I wouldn't want to be in the position of watching co-workers, ex co-workers, etc posting things against the workplace rules, which include posting the company name.

    I remember being roped into Farmville, Farmtown, Mafia Wars, Cafe World.... and one time the site was asking me for my credit card. I'm like, these are imaginary crops... I decided that I'm removing the APPs for those games and just keeping Scrabble & Words With Friends. I tolerate the constant ads, only because I love Scrabble.

    I find it interesting to see just how much of a polarizing effect F-book has on a population. It seems that people generally determine (at least in part) its usefulness based on how much of the negative aspects they are willing to tolerate. IE: if you can put up with advertising, erosion of privacy rights, and banal game requests, then you are much more likely to regard F-book as a useful resource. I also find it amusing to watch many F-book fans step up to defend the utility, as if F-book really needed defending! ;-)

    I found a lot of long lost friends from grade school, college, former jobs. That alone is worth it to me.
