    Social Networking

    Do you do it?

    If yes, then you can link to your profile(s).

    I do, and... I think it would be better to link to the page with all my profiles on it.

    I don't know where you find the time to keep up with all those networking sites!

    No way - no how - no - no - no!!!

    If I want someone to know something about me or my life and what's going on - I will PM them or email them or even practice the lost art of picking up the phone and talking to them.

    I don't need a friend of a friend of a friend snooping on me. They're probably just being nosy anyway - or worse.

    You can restrict your profile to friends only and choose who can see your friends list on Facebook, I don't use any of the others so don't know if they're the same.

    I feel the same. I'm too busy tending to real life to spend my precious time chatting with cyber friends, who of course aren't true friends, and may not even be who they claim they are! As for contacting real friends, let us not forget another lost art: writing a letter with pen and paper.

    I would have said that I agree with you a few months ago. I use Facebook to keep in touch basically with family and a few close friends. My family is not very close (in miles) so when we are all on Facebook at the same time it is kind of like being in the same room! I love it! It is up to you to choose who you allow to "friend" you. You don't have to accept friend requests.

    I disagree with the statement that "cyber friends aren't true friends", because for me, PT is the exception. I have become really close to a select few who I talk to on Facebook and such. They might have strayed from here but it doesn't mean I am not friends with them or they aren't my "real" friends.

    I have Facebook, which I use extensively. I had a myspace, but I hated it so I deleted it.

    I do not do the Facebook, but I do give it credit for breaking up my marriage.
    I saw a little message on my husband's account. It was a singer 'advertising' her gig that night. It read: Come see me at T******* tonight, I really need a hug. You know who you are.

    Well, my husband was her piano player that night, and she was 'signaling' to him. Something in my gut said: you're talking about MY husband, aren't you?!

    That was only six weeks ago. He has left me for her now.

    My opinion of Facebook is:
    too trivial
    too meddling and nosey
    and maybe we shouldn't be getting back 'in touch' with every single person we've ever known. Somethings are best just left where they are.

    Just my honest opinion.

    Magic, Firefox addons, Ping.FM, and lots of self-coded scripts.

    No No never. There aren't enough hours in my day for that stuff, I e-mail my friends for private conversations that I want to share. If I have time I will use the phone .

    I am on Facebook, but I won't bore everyone with the link as it is full of . . . pet photos!

    Reggie, I never even heard of some of those you are on.

    The thing with Facebook is, like a phone book, folks can find you. I have 3 cousins (distant not first cousins) who found me, from Italy and Sicily! We are struggling with language issues but having fun none the less. And 2 of them didn't know the other one, I got to make the introuction. Ha ha haaa.

    Yes, we did find the common link in our ancestors. It's interesting!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    A long time ago I Google searched my last name. It was pretty interesting! There is an extensively published chemist, an attorney in Texas, a competitive runner ... and then there's me ... average. A couple of people with the same last name friended me on Facebook, even though we aren't related.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I use FaceBook.

    I would rather not post a direct link or post my real name that I am listed on FB under here in the forums, but anyone who would like to "friend" me, you can leave me a message in my profile. I'm not sure if there is an e-mail me option in there or if I have it turned on, but I think you can leave me messages somehow...I'm new here and haven't found my way completely around everything yet.

    I'd also have to disagree with the comments about internet friends not being real friends.

    Take for example the issue of pets. How many people in your real life do you love despite their short comings, and spend time with...but when it comes to you losing your pet they give you that awful and painful platitude that "it was just a dog/cat/other animal"....The on-line friends I have found who are fellow pet lovers UNDERSTAND all things to do with loving pets and having them as part of the family. Even my own MIL didn't understand the pain my husband and I went through in the decision to re-home Tiger Lily, and it hurt my husband to no end. He was more consoled by people on the 'net, whom he'd never met, from another cat forum I post, at than he was by his own mother!

    I have met in person a handful of people that I first met on-line. Two have become real-life friends, very good friends! In fact, one is coming over today for an outting with my husband and I!

    FaceBook has gotten me in touch with old classmates, cousins, etc. It's a great way to keep in touch with people. FaceBook is what you make it. You select your friends carefully, keep your profile as private as possible, post in a responsible way...You shouldn't have any trouble.
