Facebook is a mirage, no substance.
What you put on there now will haunt you in jobs and social circles and even in criminal trials.
Why use it?

I know blacks that have accumulated ridiculous wealth starting out from nothing. Same with hispanics. I know dirt poor white people. Its possible to do anything you set your mind to in this country if you are willing to work for it. Little known fact...... in Africa if you have a successful business the state can come in and just take it over at any time for a duration of time and you then work for them. Dont cry " blame whitey" for problems in other countries. And in this country YOU are responsible for who you become and how far you go in life. I'm not gonna argue that the system of wealth sucks in this country but the opportunities for the masses are there if you are willing to work for them.
This face book thing reminds me of people buying Pet Rocks in the 70s
