Yeah, no one is on it, no updates or posts, and most of us don’t like that we lose our anonymity when joining. You can join, but there’s no activity.

*Also, I can get on FR at work, but not FB. Probably why I’m here more. ;^)

That is why I signed up under my screen name.

There was no, I repeat NO way I was signing up there under my real name.

No I haven't checked it out. I should go give it a look. I have only logged on twice today so what is another check in the big scheme of things.

Yep, the official group has over 1000 members. There are also a couple of fan pages.

” What’s a Facebook”

It used to be called Book’n in the South; you get slammed upside the head while believing how important you are and don’t have a clue to what’s going on.

You must be looking at one of the fan pages. The group page there has over 1000 members and is pretty active. (Listed as “free republic on Facebook”)

1019 to be exact, but I'm sure you know that :)

Of course it's a matter of personal preference, but I'm not afraid to have my name attached to whatever "hate" I spew over there. I figure when the 0bama brown shirts come calling, they've already gotten enough evidence to send me to the re-education camps anyways.

Oh, no...I’m a member of that group — I just don’t get the status updates on my wall. Wonder why?

There are many of us on the FR FB page! lol Good place to go to get updates when FR is down too. :~) I’ve been able to get a few of my FB friends to “like” the page and I’m hoping that they might check out our forum here.

Yeah, I got that. I did a search when I couldn’t get onto FR on Monday,mainly out of desperation in not being able to get my daily FR fix. I don’t know what was going on but I kept getting a “connection has timed out” message (I use Firefox).Now that I got my FR back,I don’t see the need to go to a page that’s really just a waste of space.I am home!

You're not missing anything,believe me. The page looks almost spoofish,with Wikipedia and some complaints about being kicked off of FR,etc. It's almost like a gathering place for the banned and the bashers.

Oh, for Pete's sake. The last thing I want to waste my time on is reading the rants of a bunch of frickin' whiners. ;)

Thanks for the info!
