I used to use FB but now nada. I find the site a bit confusing with all sorts of nonsense thrown in. Mostly annoying really!
I use facebook. I enjoy it but it can be a big time waster. For the most part, people can’t “hide” like they do on FR behind fake names. Some people don’t post their pics but most do.
So is Scramble. Eeeeevil ...
And Mafia Wars.
FR is awesome. Thank God for this site!
Just to enter contests. Haven’t won anything yet.
I recently read that Michelle will NOT allow her daughters to use social media. True?
Hell. No. I use Twitter for micro-blogging but no way on Facebook. The only time I will open an account is when my daughters are old enough to use it and their mother and I approve it which will be a while from now.
Facebook is a significant security risk!
And, NO, you won’t notice.
I’ve been considering Linked in but don’t know much about it.
Hell no on facebook or Gubment Book.
I don’t use it.
I've cut myself down to just Bejeweled Blitz. Everything else I've let go of... Slightly proud of that. :)
Dunno. I think they're both too young for Facebook, anyway.
So far the comments here are exactly what I would expect, unwittingly misinformed. Reminds me of a thread on Mac vs Windows...
FB is perfectly safe if your password isn’t 123 and your settings are correct, which really isn’t that hard to do. It’s no different then surfing the net, click on the wrong thing and badda-bing, your a bot on the internet for a HaX0r to use...
I use FB regularly, and mainly to keep up with all those who I now live 3..4..500 miles away from.
I definitely use Facebook. However, I get on Facebook about once a day where I get on Free Republic numerous times a day.
Now. Not now. Not ever.
No. Not now. Not ever. :-(
What is that?
I use it. My relatives and friends are scattered across the country. It is the best way to keep up with everyone. I don’t post about everyday things. It is better than classmates.
