Facebook turns 10 this week, and many younger people are leaving it for other social media sites. Before you do that, please consider The Top Reasons to Stay on Facebook.
Because your sister-in-law's every socio-political thought is just SO witty and engaging.
It's the only way you remember your wife's birthday.
You really look forward to finding out how your relationship develops with that smoking hot chick with no mutual friends who friended you.
It's a great way to keep in touch with friends and family. Without actually keeping in touch with friends and family.
What else are you doing to do on your work computer . . . work?
Human interaction requires interaction. With other humans. Yuck.
People are dying to see your kid's ice skating recital. You think.
All your friends would kill themselves without RIVETING status updates about what you had for lunch and which "Entourage" character you're most like.
Where else are you going to get reminders for the birthdays of the co-workers you spend 40 hours a week silently loathing?
Stalking ex-girlfriends with a pair of binoculars and a windowless van is SO "early 2000s."
How else are you going to get a peek into the pathetic, worthless lives of all the self-involved tools you're somehow friends with?
Your thoughts are too brilliant to be limited to 140 characters.
You don't want to miss any of the 38 website redesigns Facebook has planned for this year.
Because you're riveted by what all your friends are listening to on Spotify.
If you're not able to click a button showing you "like" world peace, how else will your friends know you're the single most profound, compassionate person on the planet?
Your hobbies are talking to no one in particular and meddling in other people's problems, so it's the perfect place for you.
