Does Facebook lowers your self-esteem?

I'm trying to change my life for the better and meet new people because I don't really have any close or even just good friends anymore... I had very few friends in high school and stuff.
I hate facebook because I feel like I can't escape my past.. if you don't have facebook it's just considered odd because most socially active people do, so I have an account, but if I do meet someone new and they add me I feel like they're just gonna judge me for having no friends/not being very popular.
Even if they don't say anything to you about it, it's obvious they're gonna judge you in some way because of it.. don't say they're not the kind of people you want to be hanging around with because they are really nice to me in person before they see my profile.. and it's not like they are mean to me about it afterwards, they just make less of an effort to get to know me or to go out of their way to make me their friend.
If your trying to act more outgoing or sociably with them because your turning over a new leaf it makes you look like an idiot/fake when they see your profile.. It looks like you don't have a life if noone ever writes on your wall or tags you in photos etc and this can sadly put a lot of people off wanting to be friends with you.
What do you think?
