"In a Tuesday article, the Daily Mail asked the question "Is not joining Facebook a sign you're a psychopath?" The Mail points to an observation made by German-language Der Tagesspiegel, that mass murderers Anders Breivik in Norway and James Holmes in Aurora, Colo. both didn't have Facebook profiles."

This line of thinking, is very similar to the way Michele Bachman inc arrives at the false conclusion she does. Along with many other extreme conservatives.

If A exists, and B and C do not, some feel they can create as many self created dots to connect , which do not hold substantial proof, but rather rely simply on ideology and on their say so.Still doesn't make their statement a true one. Unfortunately, today this type of thinking gets passed off as legitimate.

I believe medieval witch hunters employed the same tactics. There is a very large number of very vocal people who are convinced that the absence of evidence proves there case for them, for such a lack of evidence could only mean there's a cover-up.

Now, while the Daily Mail journos might find it very suspicious and psychopathic when they can't find someone on Facebook, I consider it suspicious and psychopthic that I've never met anybody who's seen a Daily Mail journo or being able to put a face to one. Sure, there was that one of Jan Moir after she gaybashed Stephen Gateley's family - but that had been take in the '60s and, rumours of satantic rites aside, she must have aged beyond recognition.

* THEIR - 'their case for them'. Oh, for an edit function.

If you fart on Facebook does anybody smell it?

It's more like the opposite. Not on FB is more a sign of being a normal human than anything else.

This business of being labeled "suspicious" or worse just because you value your privacy and your time has to stop.

I think we all know we can find many more articles, from reputable sources, that state Facebook users are narcissists - to whit, sociopaths..

No FB here. Give all my private info to an American corporation? Its an ethical desert out there...

Yes I'm abnormal because I don't use Facebook. If I don't care enough about a person to call them on the phone why would I need to see all the mundane details they share on Facebook?

How about this: If you have a FB account you are a psycho....

I have a BS Facebook account to log into sites, such as this one, and keep track of bands/tour dates, but honestly got to the point where going on Facebook was overwhelming. I keep in contact with my close friends and always have. Guess I don't see the point of looking at what people from high school ate last night and whatnot. On top of that, I really do not like the fact that data aggregators can easily pull out your info even when your security settings are at their highest. While I don't have anything to hide, I just don't like that. Maybe I have psychopath denial. Who knows?

I don't why any time FB is mentioned, everyone comes out of the woodwork to bash it. It's an easy way to keep track of a high volume of relationships, far more so than you can ever claim to do through personal contact.

Why does something so trite bother you?
Why would you be emotionally vested in a social network?
People bash because they can & this is the internet.
They either have a strong opinion against the product or they are flamers/trolls looking for a person like you to give them just exactly what you gave them.

I'm not bothered, I just felt like making an observation, same as you felt like replying to me.

We bash it because there are better options that don't spy on you, reserve the right to use your pics whenever for whatever, don't sell your info, don't crash the stock market and don't track every single online move they can.

Duh?

So basically you're describing the internet as a whole.

GG, have fun with your false sense of online security.

50% of my friends do not have Fb accounts. I think they are the only one not psychopath around me. At least, they are not showing off what is not true.
