The most annoying thing to me about Facebook is probably the endless quizzes I get invited to take and games I get asked to play. I'm kinda busy for all that. The "Mafia Wars" game seems to be particularly popular with people I know. I don't know what it is exactly but people keep giving me virtual guns and things.
The great thing about Facebook for me is that I can take a picture of something from my phone and publish it to people who are interested instantly from anywhere in the world. Recently I took a picture of my audience at a speech I was giving in Dallas during the speech and before I got back to my hotel room my Mom was making comments about my listeners.
It lets me keep people informed very efficiently.
