Originally, it was much more low-key than MySpace: A user needed an official school e-mail address to join. To a registered user, the interface worked somewhat similarly (a user could view everyone in his network, but would have to add friends from other networks to view their profiles). Because it came out in spring 2004, anyone who had graduated from college in 2003 or earlier was essentially forbidden from becoming a member, due to their lack of an official school account. Schools were also added piecemeal, so your friend might invite you to join, but find that your college wasn't in the site's database yet.

* MisplacedNationalism: Plenty of rather nasty nationalist groups can be found on the site. Luckily, reporting them can yield results if the people in charge pay attention.
** Even the more benevolent groups dedicated to a country will usually have a problem at some point with their walls being trolled by people of other nationalities who don't like them.

* UnusualEuphemism: Any time a profile says "Self Employed," there's a very good chance it really means '''un'''employed, especially when their supposed actual business isn't mentioned anywhere.

** Facebook's [[http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/05/29/campaigners_get_facebook_response/ announcement]] of a new policy has stuck some users as this. The new rules would ban anything that "promotes violence" against women. While this sounds like a good idea many have criticized the rather vague and loose wording as well as the fact that is does not offer the same protections for men. The fact that it bases its judgments and training solely on feminist claims and ([[UsefulNotes/{{Feminism}} misunderstood]]) beliefs has also drawn [[http://www.avoiceformen.com/feminism/feminist-lies-feminism/facebook-hates-women/ some attention.]]

Facebook is home to a variety of third-party applications, including some rather addictive games like ''VideoGame/MafiaWars'' and ''FarmVille''. In fact, [[JustHereForGodzilla some people have Facebook accounts for the sole purpose of playing games]].

** And you likely know a married couple who share a Facebook page with a name something like "[[PortmanteauCoupleName Billyandmaria Smithperson]]". And unless they say who's posting, you can't tell which one is.

** If you post detailed information about when and where you plan on traveling for your honeymoon, and your address, and don't have strict privacy settings ... well, don't be surprised when your house gets burgled while you're away.

** Regardless of your opinions on the matter, it is obvious that Facebook has a very strong anti-gun bias. Pro-gun Facebook pages get closed down on a regular basis for no stated reason, while groups such as Mom's Demand Action literally support genocide against gun owners and are never punished by Facebook.
** While hate groups against the usual targets (Jews, African Americans, LGBT people, etc.) are not tolerated, hate groups against [[AcceptableEthnicTargets smaller, lesser known minorities]] (lesser known in the US at least) and the "majority" groups, like whites, males, or heterosexual/cisgender people, are often left alone no matter how many times they get reported for being racist.
