With the news that Americans are spending more time on Facebook than on any other dotcom, we thought it appropriate to point out that not all Facebook fanatics actually like Facebook. Needless to say, there are Facebook pages for these deFacers. Here are five Facebook pages where you can find the refudiaters.

I Hate Facebook. 7,787 People Like This. Sample message: "I hate facebook apps. Stop spamming the news feed."

MySpace. 169,665 PLT. Sample message: "might be a dumb question but just wondering why myspace is on facebook?

Wasting Time on Facebook. 3,406 PLT. Sample message: "ATTENTION! Your Attention Please! May I have your attention?...Thank you! You may now go back to wasting time on Facebook."

I Don’t Read. 59,265 PLT. Sample message (channeling Henny Youngman): "When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading."

Go Outside and Do Something. 25,987 PLT. Sample message: The group asked its members what they were going to do outside over the weekend. One Facebook user replied: "mall bonding with my friends."

These pages raise obvious questions. They would include: "Then, why are you on Facebook?"  And "What exactly was MySpace again?" If you know of any other strange/funky Facebook pages we should know about, please let us know. We "like" this.
