+1 Exactly. No apps, no games, and privacy except for friends and no friends of friends.
Yep....and it seems there's only 3 people I ever really talk to on there, and one of them is my boy, since he lives with his mother.
I still never liked the idea of social sites. Myspace was just ....TOOOOO much crap. And twitter......you wouldn't catch me using anything called twitter, or tweeting for that matter. It just doesn't sound good. I wouldn't admit it in public anyway.
FB is about as simple as it gets if you do it right.

I think that even apple is a little lax on their apps, they let a lot of bogus apps out that people have to pay for
