I think that facebook has a place but what gets on my nerves is that people upload their photos of all sorts of things and expect a custom service.
Facebook is free… it stores your images and your friend network….. For that free service you have to pay somewhere along the line and that is the advertising….
People complain too much about it. If you dont like it dont use it?
That said, finding something that you talked about last month is virtually impossible on facebook… Forums such as this one are much better for the library system of storing information…
Living the dream!
