I don’t have a Facebook account, except a fake one to check my kids accounts. Facebook sucks.

I saw that on Friday Silliness Thread. It’s hysterical.

For the most part all the social type places bore me to tears. I got on Face Book primarily to stay in touch with family who live away from me. I truly shudder when I get glimpses of my kids’ pages. There is truly a generation gap in what we find interesting. ;)

I just liked it. Tastes fine to me. I alienated several of my family (all democrats) by posting political truths on my wall. They tried to tell me that I should only post about my family and no one cared about political BS. I told them that not only were they rude to say that no one cared about what I thought and to call it BS, they were dead wrong. I had other family and friends that cared deeply about what version of America our kids and grandkids would inherit. Not to mention their attempt to deny me my right to free speech. I told them to unfriend me if they were so frightened by opposing points of view. I wouldn't dream of forcing someone to conform to my set of views as they seemed to be.

Wow, mine just show it’s up to 305.

I wonder what the problem is?

Oh well Maybe it’s because you have more friends than me. lol

OK, now I see from the Facebook page it has 812 now.

I was looking at the top of FreeRepublic Main Forum Latest Articles page and it says 305.

Interesting it has different numbers on FR than it does on Facebook.

Facebook and other internet sites are what helped Obama become the guy that lives in the White House.

In between vacations, that is.

It's an excellent tool for getting FR more exposure, and for promoting political events/ideas etc.

Conservatives need to get as involved as possible with the www in all ways, because the internet houses the New Media.

I don't think it means that FR “supports” facebook, but that FR is using it.

I went to the bottom where it says configure sidebars and then set everything that was disabled to right. I don’t like it the way it is and there may be a better way, but it does show the Like thing now.

I use LinkedIn to keep tabs on professional acquaintances, former coworkers and college friends. I go there only occasionally. LinkedIn is very handy when networking for a job search or maintaining ties in case you lose your job.

FR is full of adult FRiends and almost entirely devoid of juveniles. I have no use for Facebook. YMMV

I am in no way "cool" and haven't a clue what Farm Town is. ;)

I’m on FB and when I first got on - I had a liberal stalk and harrass me - So I am not too keen on opening up FR to FB kooks - which FB has plenty if!

Just my two cents, Jim. I like FR without the weirdos!

Because my Dad was military I have no real roots and so it has been great for me, I have made contact with my childhood via FB. So maybe my case is different than many people my age’s. I also keep up with my kids and my former students. Lots of my dog show friends also post there and we share photos of dogs etc. I find it an interesting community. I don’t currently work, and I can see how it would be problematic if I did. Of course, I don’t post stuff I wouldn’t want the entire world to see anyway, because...well, I’m not an idiot! But I’m constantly amazed at what people DO post, and sometimes remind my younger relatives and friends that this stuff, no matter how private it seems, is NOT private. And it’s forever.

I guess we’re officially curmudgeons. I hate the facebook thing, and it’ll probably stay, based on the kiddie votes on this thread.

I thought maybe it was a virus.

I have a fake account on Facebook just to make sure my boys don't mess up and post something they shouldn't. My only friends there are my boys and that's the way it will stay.

I was a military brat myself - long, long ago. There were no personal computers back then. Social networks were groups of friends at the roller rink or movie theater. Yes, I'm quickly becoming a curmudgeon.

I found a group on FB of kids who lived over in Japan where we did, also for those who lived at Clark in the PI. It’s been fun sharing stories.

I just saw it tonight. Went to check in at FB, then return to FR. There was the FB “like” box. I don’t mix my politics with family/friends at FB. They are two totally separate things.

That’s very wise, I generally keep my Facebook comments related to sports. I admit most of my family/high school pals are liberals, but there has to be more to life than just politics, FR is where I can vent my spleen.

It’s just not worth getting involved. No one is going to change anyone else’s mind. All that can happen with family/friends is hard feelings.

In ‘08, one of my nieces (an Obama fan) got an email from her cousin, blasting Obama. She sent back a snippy email insisting he not email her any more of that stuff. My brother and another (pro-Obama) cousin had to agree, mid- October 08 not to talk again till the election was over. Who needs that ? And Thanksgiving ‘08 wasn’t too happy at our house, either, where I actually had to feed my 2 Obama-voting offspring.
