    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.

    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.

    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!

    yes....

    Twitter and facebook is a great way for me to advertise my shop and has been a successful venue for me.

    not to mention my family and old friends I had lost touch with are on facebook and it allows me to keep in touch with them.




    R.I.P my dear Sweet Teddy. You will be missed forever. We love you.

    On Twitter I counted 419 people with my same name. Not just last name but
    first and last. I guess though I have one of the most common names in the Anglo world. My local white pages has 5 or 6 pages of people with my name.

    I googled my full name and got 82,000,000 hits. I have no Idea if I'm even in there. I'm not going to filter though that many names to find out.

    I don't use any of that stuff...facebook, myspace...nothin... I'm just not into it. If I want someone to know somethin about me or if they want to know I can just tell them or they can ask me And if I want to talk to somebody I'll get their ## and text them lol. I text and that's pretty much all I do

    I use facebook. I still have a myspace account, but don't use it. I just have so many photos uploaded there that I haven't deleted it, yet.

    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.
