Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

We're feeling old... That's how we're feeling. 9 years... And it seems like just yesterday I was MySpacing.

I dropped Facebook for Google+. I got tired of old classmates getting mad at me for not friending them in a timely manner.

9 years, bah. I'm wearing pants older than that.

When it makes 50 years, that will be something.

9 years is significant because the original concept was only open to college students with a .edu email address. That means 9 years ago I was an undergrad.

I know I'm not really "old", but this sure makes me feel like it.

Add to that ex girlfriends, long lost relatives that I never talk to, and random people I never talk to at work. The motivation to leave facebook becomes even stronger.

Bah! Facebook used to be awesome drunk photos of my friends and maybe swooping on my acquaintance's exes; now it's moms sending glurge chain messages about dead kids, inspirational quotes, and spam.

Facebook is the new email.

It was eating up all my time and I realized it was spent on people whom I never EVER speak to in person. People that I didn't really care about and they surely didn't care about me. So, I stopped using it other than the occasional pop-in to make sure the few I DO care about are all safe and sound (maybe once/week for 10 minutes) but those people would usually have told me either in person or via call/text anyway.

I like facebook for one thing.

Single sign on.

Most websites now let users use facebook as their login. Thats it for me
