I never liked FaceBook. I created an account a few months ago just to see how it works. After adding a few friends (actual friends), I quickly became annoyed and overwhelmed by the amount of useless information.
I had heard that FaceBook was a cleaner MySpace. This is wrong! FaceBook is everything but clean. All these crappy little apps are bothering the hell out of me. The page is cluttered and make it very hard to read or understand what you’re doing.
This article on Fortune has some good points too.
Facebook, the 71-million-member social network, has attracted lots of adults during the last year as it became a global technology cause celebre.

Yes, what’s the benefit? I already have MySpace!
