25. Add me to the list of Facebook haters

I have a completely empty Facebook account as a placeholder, but I just don't get the appeal either. I can't imagine having all my friends, family and casual acquaintances in a singe place. I have different relationships with different people and wouldn't want the same conversations with young nephews as with elderly maiden aunts, for example.

In addition, I'm an extremely private person and I utterly resent Facebook's increasing attempts to become the web. I don't want to Like commercial products and share all my likes and dislikes with everyone and I always hated Christmas newsletters. Employers have no business knowing my personal interests and hobbies and I don't want to be thought another Unibomber simply because I value my privacy.

Facebook can't die soon enough for me. It's like volunteering data for and maintaining your own Stasi file.
