you can delete your facebook

We can never truly 'delete' our Facebook accounts. All that sh*t is still on there and the government can access it and sh*t. Employers can prolly still see a 'deleted' Facebook account too before they decide whether or not to hire someone.

But back on topic, these social networking sites takin' over man... I'll never get why we all spend so much time on something that's not making us any money. sh*t is sad. I forgot what people used to do for fun before all this technology took over. People actually used to go outside and talk to each other. Now in public we all just put in our headphones or stay close to our phones and text. We are disconnecting ourselves from reality when we keep trying to find new ways to connect to the Internet. Like if you wanted to hang out ya friends back then you had to either call on the house phone or walk down the block and meet up. Now people just hang out on Twitter and Facebook and sh*t...

I don't care who has access to Instagram, Android, iPhone, Facebook alike. It was funny to brag about the iPhone exclusivity but you still decide who you want to follow, so what's the big deal?

All I ask for is Facebook doesn't f-ck around with Instagram in any shape or form. PLEASE! I've really been getting into Instagram lately, following dope people, posting stuff, etc. I have a bad feeling that FB is going to try and fix what's not broken like they do with their network every half a year.

They also purchased Draw Something. Go f-ck around with that and ruin that game, but don't destroy a genuinely entraining and inspirational social network.

don't count on it. Prolly will slowly integrate it directly into the mobile Facebook app then end support for the stand alone app.

Instagram is actually a social network that was quickly gaining grown. People think its an app when reality it was a social network with an app that has sh*tty filters. If anything
Facebook saw instagram as a threat especially when it quickly grew from 1 mill to 30 mill in a year and still rapidly growing.

That'd be the worst thing they can possibly do. I don't like/f-ck with 99% of my Facebook friends, why would I want that sh-t on my instragram? Plus I like the freedom of being followers and not having to necessarily follow back (and vice versa).

I dunno. On one hand, it's just an app but on the other, it's dope as f-ck and as a graphic designer, Instagram is really useful and appealing to me.

Keep Instagram as is. Rename it to Facepic or some bullsh-t if it makes them feel better but I wish they wouldn't mess with the actual app cause it's virtually perfect as is.

i'm really scared that that f*ggot Mark Zuckerberg is gonna fu*k with the app big time and turn it into sh*t.
