    I have never had a Facebook account. Not sure I ever will, either.

    My iMac is always on when I'm at home so in theory, I'm nearly always on. However, I wouldn't say I spend much time in Facebook. I rarely talk to anyone and even more rarely post anything.

    My routine: Check FB on my iPhone while eating breakfast, check it a few times on iPhone during the day (this is just a timekiller when at school), come home - open iMac and leave it on until I go to bed.

    I used to have a facebook account and used it a moderate amount. I then decided that I didn't care about most of my 'friends' so I deleted my profile and stay in contact with people I actually care about via SMS, email, phone, and actual face-to-face interactions.

    I'm not much of a social person.

    I use it everyday but i very rarely use the chat function on it. I normally just use it to see what my mates are up to, who's going pub after work etc. I only have about 40 people on it though. All are real life mates. I don't have randomers like some people do.

    I personally use it like Twitter.

    I use it almost everyday. It's nice to keep in touch with friends and see how they are doing since everyone is busy with family/work life now. :(

    I'm usually logged on in a tab somewhere on my computer. But I don't use it as much except a time killer. I do use it to keep in contact with a few friends and see what old classmates are up too though.

    Frequent. More-so, I have Facebook chat logged in through Adium X and just leave that running, only cause its a quick way to get in contact with people, and with Adium X I just use the chat and don't have to deal with status about dry periods, break-ups, etc...

    Like a lot of others, I have easy access to Facebook and check on a few friends every day but I hardly ever post anything on my wall--usually just reply to comments from others on their wall. It is a great tool for me to keep in touch with people who would probably disappear otherwise. For the fun factor, I prefer Twitter.

    I only use it for sharing links with my friends and some times photos.

    Occasionally I'll jump on and see what's going on. Not a big fan of it though.

    Use it occasionally as a time killer at school. Never really talk to anyone on there.

    I check it one or twice a day as some of my friends post some pretty good articles to read. I sometimes update my status. Having it on my phones makes it a lot easier.

    I check it everyday, Since family started using it and it's an easy way to keep in touch.

    I have been using it a lot less these past few months. It feels nice to have come to the realization that there are other things I'd rather be doing then checking notifications and events.

    I still use it, just significantly less then before.

    I tried it. I don't like it. I didn't use it. I will never use it.

    I don't have an account

    I don't like data-mining.

    And why would I want peeps from my past to find me?

    That would negate the value of the Witness Protection Program.

    I am not on Facebook ... IMO it is a passing fad that will mirror MySpace and AOL's demise ... FB will jump the the Shark into complete meltdown. :cool:
