Facebook: Do you have one?

I was curious how many members actually have a facebook. I do realize there are threads mentioning keeping in touch with folks outside the TFP however none specified toward facebook. If there are...apologies.

I have a facebook, it's pretty common for most college aged people to have them. James has a facebook as well. My mom is constantly paranoid I'm going to be stalked and murdered through someone on facebook, but I think you take that risk when getting involved with anything of that nature online. One just has to display the correct amount of information, meaning not too much.

We both were found there one day. We had friend requests, and it took a minute for each of us to realize who it was.

Any of you guys have friends from the TFP on there?

No. Facebook is like MySpace. I don't need either in my life. I have a MySpace somewhere... needs to be erased.

Oh, btw... there was this rumor that World's King is a Facebook serial killer.

I hate MySpace. Facebook is more to my aesthetic.

So, yes, I have a profile on Facebook.

I have never been to myspace before and don't ever plan on it. Unfortunately I kind of have a facebook profile, just to get an old friends email address. I have not deleted it but there is nothing about me on it, you have to be my friend to view it and I have not logged in in a month

There's several people on FB from TFP. I've got an account but mainly use it to play scrabble.

I don't do Facebook. I have a completely empty MySpace account, because a friend of mine "blogs" there (to the extent that you can, and JEEBUS why you'd choose MySpace to host your blog...) and you can't comment without being a member. I have a Live Journal account for the same reason.

I have one because a lot of people I know have one, but I pretty much never use it. Everyone has myspace, which I'm not REALLY a fan of, but it's been doing great for increasing the number of listeners to my show.

Yea, facebook is a great way to get in touch with folks you long lost contact with. I've found some of my elementary school friends on it as well as some middle school and Sunday school.
I found the group on facebook btw. Thanks for the info!

I much prefer the look of facebook to Myspace. I have a myspace but check it very rarely. Too much junk in my box,

It's pretty much just a place to post pictures where everyone I want to can see them. There's the unfortunate need to go and untag pictures of myself that I wouldn't want potential employers seeing, but it's not that bad. Any crossover of my online personas and real life has to be sanitized in case I get a job somewhere that checks it. I may have to delete my myspace because of it since the name in my URL can be cross-referenced via Google to another nickname that's exclusive to me, and that one can be traced to stuff that isn't an employer's business. TFP is also separate from real life except for friends who are members.

I've got a Facebook account because that's the way my High school buddies have kept in touch, and the way my karate class sends messages. Also, my brother and some of my cousins are on there. All in all, it saves plane fare.

I also have Myspace and Linkedin accounts for keping up with other sets of folks.

No,

I'm older than most of you (43) and as such, it really doesn't appeal to me in the least. I did open an account once and searched a pile of names and only came across 2 out of scores that I entered. So obviously, my Generation (X) aren't really into facebook, or myspace, or anything else the like of.

If I mention it to any of my contemporaries, they either roll their eyes and ask, "what the fuck do I want to do that for?", or ask, "what the hell is facebook?"

I'm also a little bit more paranoid about my privacy. Part of me thinks it's something evil.

I have one and it's been great for keeping up on my many disparate friends. I can't get out to socialize like I use to so such a site is very helpful.

However, I'm keeping it mostly separate from this place because they're different vibes. I'll never refuse a friend request from any of you but I'm not going to try and recreate this place there. It's just not the same.

The Scrabulous app is great. I'm always up for a game!

Yeah, I don't think any of us in the group of Facebook users is looking for a place to recreate TFP...to me, it's just like a more elaborate, more personal profile about myself and my interests for people to look at, and another venue for them to socialize with me.

I understand what you mean about the separation of the two.

I use facebook. You really have to have it if you are in college. At computer science conferences many people have a facebook account. If you want to network for a job, you'll need a clean facebook account.

Anyway, everyone on my facebook account are people I have met in real life; I think this is true for most people and that is why I prefer it to myspace.

I have a Facebook; it spread like a virus at my University when it first came out, to the point where I don't know one single college student I've talked to that doesn't have one

One thing I find amusing is when people are like "I have a MySpace, but Facebook? Jesus, no. Never will I have a FACEBOOK!" and vice versa. They are the same thing, they just look different. With the introduction of Applications into Facebook, it has become just as bloated and ugly as MySpace.

I keep both just so I can keep in touch with friends and see what's going on with their lives (sounds pathetic, but it works very effectively). It's also good for seeing what's going on with people you don't talk to that much. It's basically a perpetual high school/college reunion.

I have both.

Facebook comes in handy in hunting down phone numbers and contact information that I'd otherwise have no means of obtaining. I don't use it for much more than that though. There are so many worthless applications and "important updates" on it, that I can't weed through the countless piles of shit staring back at me.

MySpace I use more frequently as I find it quicker to navigate and have fewer oodles of junk to sort through. I also use it to keep an eye on music that I would otherwise have no exposure to because of where I'm located, and that's my primary use for it.

Strangely enough, most of my peer group are heavy users of FB (47 to 48 year olds) and I often get criticized for not responding to messages on it. I have no issues one way or the other about it, except to say that it often eats up time.
