I just got an IM from a friend asking if I'd seen her event invitation on Facebook. I hadn't. While I sort of have a Facebook account I rarely actually use the site. To me it seems like an endless barrage of noise with no ability to pick interesting content out of it. How is this useful or interesting? (Man, do I feel old saying that.)

Apparently I have:

* 7 friend suggestions
* 11 friend requests
* 1 friend detail request
* 1 event invitation
* 5 group invitations
* 1 knighthood invitation
* 4 mafia wars requests
* 1 my girls friend request
* 2 cause invitations
* 1 monty python gifts! request
* 1 birthday request
* 1 new years drink request
* 2 movie quiz requests
* 1 movie request
* 2 snowball requests
* 1 (ice) snowball wars request
* 1 (frost) snowball war request
* 1 birthday request
* 1 what alcoholic drink request
* 4 (lil) green patch requests
* 3 hug requests
* 1 naughtier poke request
* 1 birthday list invitation
* 1 家好月圓慶中 request
* 1 funny panda request
* 1 betty boop kiss request
* 1 good karma from moll request
* 1 kinky poke invitation
* 1 own your friends invitation
* 3 buy your friends requests
* 1 human gift request
* 1 my sistas request
* 1 cupcakes request
* 1 adopt a 3d puppy invitation
* 1 caribbean request
* 3 mob wars invitations
* 1 pies for you request
* 1 korean food request
* 1 super wall invitation
* 1 mytype invitation
* 1 blackjack invitation
* 1 risk invitation
* 1 booze mail request
* 1 scrabulous request
* 1 happy hour request

What in the hell is all that crap and why would I care? Can anyone explain the appeal of this site?
