    I have been experimenting with the facebook thingy. I just don't get it.
    My mom likes it because she gets to see pics and updates of the "out of town" kids in the family. I can understand that....however...
    one of my "friends" has 950 "friends".....and it even says where she is and where she had lunch and chit...
    Sorry but 950 friends...and saying where you are.....:ZZZHope ya did not pi$$ any of them off lately.<>;lol

    I know you do not have to allow the option to say where you are.

    I am not downing facebook, please don't get me wrong. I just had no idea those options where available on it.

    Maybe I am old school..."Give me your number and I will call ya"....(or not)....

    I have people from 25 years ago asking to be "my friend".....
    if I wanted to be their friend I woulda a long time ago....;lol

    and yes, Hearth.com is like a facebook for woodburners...but better dammit.

    Just my take...not judging, just observing.
    and to keep with the OP...I did not find it stimulating to post on the Facebook thingy... sFun_eyescan.gif

    "Experimenting" with Facebook . . . I thought that sort of thing supposedly only happens in college? ;) :) Sorry . . . couldn't help myself . . . I am a very, very bad person. ;)

    On the serious side . . . I Facebook . . . very useful for communicating messages to our ATV Club members or members of Camp Jakeawana -- a "campground" I run for my friends . . . well OK, it's more like a running joke as it's just a bunch of friends pitching a tent in my yard 2-3 times a year . . . although I did make up camp signs, have camp T-shirts and even made up a brochure.

    I also use Facebook to keep in touch with friends . .. some of whom I see every week and some of whom I haven't seen in years.

    I cannot say that posting on Facebook gets me all hot and bothered though.

    "I cannot say that posting on Facebook gets me all hot and bothered though."

    Whew, I wuz stating to get a bit concerned there.
    I did Facebook, then I didn't. Like Gamma says, this is better. Still though, not better than sex.
    Just to be clear.:cool:

    I got on Facebook at the behest of my wife, she said "get on facebook, its neat! you get to see all your friends from growing up, all our out of town relatives, etc". So I get on facebook and my ex-fiance friended me !!........ooooooooh baby, that opened up a can of worms there! Let's just say my wife was not amused....AT ALL! :eek: I still have a facebook account, but I do NOT post where I am at, what I am wearing, who I am with, etc. That's just plain ridiculous. As far as the facebook/sex thing, facebook almost got my weiner cut off for me and I DIDN'T DO A DAMM THING! :mad: I'd rather keep my jewels and have a good relationship with my beautiful wife than spend time on facebook. So, I don't believe this study is accurate AT ALL! Good post, Fossil!

    I did facebook, and then didn't and now doing it again. Like Jake, to hook up with my 4 wheelin buddies and to see pics of my grand kids. Other than that, it seems a little silly to me. I don't really care where you are, or that you have the day off and are doing nothing, or you had a good breakfast.........or, or whatever. And like gamma, "you now want to be my friend", are you kidding me. You are not my friend, go away. I think it is all gonna blow up anyway.>>

    I am the trustee for my mother-in-laws assets. I just could not resist the night before the IPO sending her kids, the beneficiaries of the trust, an email telling them that to make her and them a lot of money I had moved the mutual funds into a purchase of Facebook shares..

    Panic city and really nasty threats by the end of the day Tuesday. ;lol What is scary is that they waited till Tuesday.

    BB, If you really did that, & I'm sure it's a true story, that's freakin hilarious & a little twisted. That's one of the best uses of social media, & the net I think I've heard. Rattle multiple people's cages @ one time, make em think all sorts of scary thoughts, & do it your boxers from the comfort of home. You sir are a true genius. A C

    Yeah it was a little fun. Wife is one of the beneficiaries and she approved the the chain yank. She had confidence in my projection that the thing was way over sold.

    When I joined the facefriend, I thought about ex's possibly asking to be my friend and how I would handle that.
    But then I said eff it because all my serious ex boyfriends are dead except for one. !!:confused::rolleyes: sFun_disappear.gif

    Just for the record, I did not have anything to do it.:confused:
    One died in a car accident, one in a fire, 2 from leukemia and the one still living had Hodgkins lymphoma and is in remission right now...I think?
    They all died a few years later, not during the relationship.

    The area I live in has a huge amount of cancer...pretty scary..very scary.
    I just found out one of my friends has kidney cancer now at 38....I found out on facebook and I am glad I did. There is a benefit going on for him.
    So the facebook thingy can be good for some things. half smiley.jpg

    Probably burn pieces of very large weeds to heat your house too. Don't ya?

    Guilty on all counts myself. Spent 35 years introducing the latest and greatest technologies and the day I retired I was done with it. Give me a phone that rings and makes calls and a browser that browses. Thank you very much.
