5. Because everyone else is having a better time than you are
The home feed is a constant source of depression. Everyone else is going to more exotic places than you are, getting haircuts that are better than yours and of course, partying. There are DJs, there are shiny dance floors, multicolored drinks, hazy pictures of too much fun had and of course, that invisible, but strong reminder that the last "party" I went to involved a 6 year old cutting cake and Winnie the Pooh. On the bright side, I did get a picture with Winnie the Pooh. 

4. Because Facebook knows all the people you never liked in School and wants you to be friends with them. 
For the last time, I don't want to add R.Srivatsan who was my bench-partner in V-B for 4 days as a friend. Especially because he changed schools right after stealing my brand new Hero pen. That pretty much sealed the end of our friendship right there. Also

3. Because Facebook is not a pleasant place when you're academically incompetent (Like me)
Just when you come on to Facebook to get your mind off your exam results, the first story on your feed is some moron with an AATHA! NA PASS AAYITEN!* status. There is obviously something wrong with the system.  

2. Because Facebook loves to remind you that you're not getting any younger
If your friends aren't getting married, they're probably having babies, that kid who used to take "how to play with Barbie" lessons from you is celebrating the 6 month anniversary with her second boyfriend and apparently, 18 'til I die is just a song. 

1. Because Facebook is the new TamilMatrimony
The other day, my mother was on the phone with an aunt, and the subject of discussion was the ongoing "looking" process for a cousin. Apparently the Aunt had mentioned something about how they had got a "good match" but had no clue about how said match looked like, for which my mother immediately remarked - "Pera sollungo! Facebook-la paakalaam!" (Just say the name! We'll find him on Facebook!). 

Deactivate button, anyone?

* - Roughly translates to "MOMMY! I HAVE BECOME PASS!"
