Actually, not having a Facebook would be the hipster thing to do. Since Facebook is so popular.

Same here. I just don't get the draw. :shrugs:

I am on Facebook, and the draw for me was that I have a lot of good friends who are pretty far away, some heading off to college and whatnot, and that's the best way for us to stay in touch with each other. I originally made my account just so that I could run a FB page, but then I started friending people and now I use it.

I only friend people I know in real life though, sorry GIA89


AHEM! THAT'S 99! :shame: some people :p

I think of hip being what's the cool and popular thing to do (i.e. have Facebook)...different from hipsters who go against what's popular on purpose. Perhaps that's the wrong definition on my part. :P

I would sort of like to have a page for business purposes, but I've been informed you must have a personal page first to be able to start a business page, so that's out. :x

Or you could just cave for the sake of your business. ;)

seriously tho. Your aspiring business is pretty much trapped if you don't properly engage social media. Trust me, I basically do this for a living. :P

You do have to have a personal page, but you don't have to use it. The first year or so I was on FB I didn't even have my profile filled in. I just uploaded a picture of a flower and set my privacy settings so that basically no one could friend me. I just ran my page from that. So that is an option :)

I think hipsters go against the norm. You were even more of a rebel hipster because you went against the rules and used a character name way back at the beginning and got kicked off!

And you do NOT need to have a personal page to have a business page. It will ask you after you create a biz page if you want to set up a personal one, but it is not required. On the main page under the box to create an account is a link to create a page. Do it! I'll be your first fan. \:D/

Except, that deffinition doesn't quite work nowadays, since being "Hipster" is quickly becoming quite popular.

Therefor, those people (myself included) who refuse to be drawn into the "Hipster Movement," as I like to call it, are the true "Hipsters." \:D/ :mrgreen:

I have Facebook. I like the chat feature because it's like MSN and you can talk to people about homework. I don't post statuses though.

Than they're not really hipsters according to that definition than are they?

Also, and more importantly:

Reading this topic, I find it a bit surprising that some of you don't have Facebook. I'm not the only one. =P

I wouldn't mind having a Facebook, because I'd appreciate being able to keep up with a few people that I don't/can't talk with very much. I don't really have time for Facebook, though, so I just glance at a post on my sibling's now and then throughout the day. ;)

I think we can all pretty much agree that hipsters have become a paradox. ;)

I don't have a Facebook, GIA, but I don't think you'll be able to stop an off-topic discussion when it comes to Facebook. This is the Internet. ;)

It would be nice, though, if people weren't like, "Hey! We're gonna let you know about these plans solely through Facebook because, obviously, everyone uses Facebook and there's no reason to suspect that people live lives off of social media that prevent them from accessing this information!". Seriously, I've missed more messages about gatherings for church functions and ensemble meetings than I really care to think about. Whatever happened to just sending out an e-mail? Those are so unpopular, everyone has them. :(

I would probably die without Facebook.


Okay, not really, but I use it every single day for everything from connecting with friends and family who don't live near me, to collaborating and organizing for work, to keeping up on news and updates from different pages I follow, to debating things I'm passionate about .... yeah. Facebook is a large part of my life for many reasons. None of which have to do with Farmville or Candy Crush. ;)

I really agree with you here. I eventually had to get Facebook because of this, but I never really use it except to get church notices, and I still prefer email to Facebook.

What I don't like is all the companies that give out free samples and coupons, and they are all FACEBOOK ONLY! :mad: So annoying.
