Alright, i wanna take a vote, do you like Facebook or MohawksRock better? personally, i prefer mohawks...im just curious to see what others on here prefer.
Kinda surprised this hasn't gotten any posts.
I prefer all forums that give me an opportunity to share info or ask for it, vs failbuk which is "ADDMEADDMEADDDME LOOK AT MY PICTURES BE IMPRESSED BY MY MUSIC INTERESTS NIETZSCHE INSPIRES ME LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL "
It is that same reason that attracts me to forums as well and I find it to be a result of the focus, whether particular or broad. If it is here or somewhere else, I have a general idea of what I am going to see or say and I know I will always learn something. In comparison, Facebook often leaves me thinking the majority of profiles are run by a retarded chipmunks on meth randomly puking thoughts onto my screen.
"ADDMEADDMEADDDME LOOK AT MY PICTURES BE IMPRESSED BY MY MUSIC INTERESTS NIETZSCHE INSPIRES ME LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL "
is that not the same with mohawks rock? :P
especially the "look at my pictures, be impressed by my music interests."
Haha yea, but I was talking about forums in general, either collectively or individually
Yeah, there is a lot of 'Add me!' going around the World Wide Web. It gets a little tiring having folk who never say anything - before or after the 'Add me!'. Ah, well, that's what the 'Remove 'em!' is for a few months later. ;)
The difference here is, there is a shared forum where you actually recognise the regular users on. It's much smaller and I find more of an open community than FB. FB tends to have comments on groups that rarely have replies. It's just like everyone streaming out with a few words or a 'Like', without any dialogue going on.
Comments on pictures here can be better 'cause they can come from anyone with the same interest. Whereas on FB, it's limited to those you've added and most of them have moved on 'cause all they cared about was being seen to be added, not about your content. Here, people will often comment nicely without an 'addme!', which is more reasonable. :)
It is a tie for me.
I enjoy the content of MR more than Facebook, but I only keep up with like Steve and maybe a few other people on MR. Where as FB gives me information on shows and what my friends who moved away to school are doing.
They offer two different things for me, so each have their appeals and downfalls.
Facebook, since I moved back to the woods and am commuting 65 miles to continue school, socialize for sanity's sake, and see my boyfriend allows me to have a semblance of connection with my friends and know ahead of time when something is going on event wise. Frequently when I go on though, Facebook leaves with a disdain for people and a need to disconnect from the world due to things like people sharing intimate details that should be between the people involved only not the internet, unnecessary fights and drama, stupid stuff that makes me question our species future, and most off all the fact that individuals use it as a replacement for face-to-face interaction.
Mohawks Rock allows me interaction with like-minded people, provides me a means to improve the way I put up my hair, share/learn information and ideas, etc. The main downside is the infrequency of activity in some aspects of the site.

why dont you just delete those "friends" or unsubscribe them?
MR definantly has more interesting content, i really only use facebook to talk to my close friends and check out whats going on locally, other than that its just another social networking site that full of attention whores.
everyone has it
I use it for work
I like to talk about other things than my hair, anarchy, nazis, andy why my parents suck etc.
facebook makes me laugh more than this place.
I can talk to friends who i know in real life and send out messages/events for all of us to hang out without having to run my phone bill up.
although i do like the forums on this place, facebook just has shitty groups.
and its nice to walk into a room full of punk rockers and kids with mohawks... makes me feel less like a black sheep, ITS LIKE I ACTUALLY FIT IN FOR ONCE!!! :O
