Re: Personal interest
That's how a lot of people use Facebook -- almost as a sounding board. I have some friends in my stream who abuse this; for them, I remove their posts from my news feed (without unfriending them entirely).

Bottom line
We like Facebook because it gives us another thing to complain about.

Re: Agree?
@Kristen I wouldn't because I don't care to post my whole life on social media. But for those who do, I think Pinterest can try to lure them over with its own life movies. I see my FB connections all touting their movies, so it's a great bit of PR for them that other outlets can try to emulate.

Re: Agree?
@Kristen I never post personal pictures on FB, so it didn't offer me a movie. As those videos are really based on images, Pinterest can capitalize on that kind of record-keeping and encourage peopel to use it to form a kind of documentary over time. Mostly people share thing that they'd like to have or make or see, but I suppose they can encourage a section for actual experiences to later be made into such videos.

Re: Agree?
I think it depends. Some look at Facebook as a digital scrapbook. Think about the 10-year "look back" videos that everyone is sharing: Was it necessary to post every single picture or status update that you did? Probably not. But as the video proves, looking back at it is fun.

Re: Agree?
@moarsauce123 I think that some people really do believe FB is just a means of sharing everything. I really don't want TMI about a person's private life. It amazes me that people filter so little. Do I really need to know that your son had an ingrown toenail removed this morning? I think not. And as the child can easily be identified by the mother, isn't it a disservice to him to post so much about him on a public forum?
