  "All the social tanggig apps I find pointless and just there to expose you to adverts and variosu rogue embedded sites. I'm just a little sick of the vampire bites, the drinks, the food fights, pokes (WTF is that for) and the other email notification. To the point that all but join and group notifications I have disabled. I'm just fed up with the as you put it facebook spam. It was fun at first, now its waste of my time and effort.Yeah, I'm on facebook. I don't login that much, Maybe once every two weeks. Why, well I have to go login. Every time I stop the session by shut down the browser means I have to login again. And frankly I just can't be bothered going through the process. If I was left logged in I would visit every day.Also consider why should I extend information and play the spam games with in a walled garden in favour of extending my blog."
