I recently joined Facebook and am having a ball! I've found some people...what fun! I'm wondering if any of you have pages there?

I do...but I haven't done anything with it. I don't find these places "user-friendly." But then again, I don't have a lot of patience. Oh wait..yes I do...My kids say I have tons because I've never used any....

I used to be on Facebook, but felt creeped out at times by some of the people who wanted to be my "friend". I started getting weird messages and lots of spam.

Interesting.....I feel the security is quite good. You can only view my page if I let you be a "friend." You can deny or accept any invitation. I've found it a great way to connect. My daughter got me into it. I've found a few old high school buddies, have some work friends and old church friends. It's been nice.....just wondering if anyone has used it. Thanks!

I am on Facebook as well as LinkedIn and MySpace. I'm not on there very often, but have found several people that are a 'blast from the past' LOL I do get 'friend' requests from people I don't know - those I just deny or ignore. I tried Second Life but couldn't get the hang of it; same with Twitter. Part of the problem is not enough time to thoroughly check out what's there.

No haven't put myself on Facebook and MySpace. It's enough for me to participate in 2 different internet forums after work.

Somehow probably through automated harvesting of links, I'm on LinkedIn via what I've done for my jobs that's already on the Internet. But profile not activated by me for expansion.

On lower list of priorities. This month, I just started a new job that involves developing and rolling out an organizational wide piece of software. Then need to get back into work-related organizations on the Internet.

I can't even look at more personal, non-job social networking web tools right now.

I'm on Facebook and MySpace. I'm trying to get with it.
What I know for sure is that it's all connected.

I signed up about a month ago when my son joined and 'invited' me to be his friend. I don't go there too often - I feel like I'm snooping on my kids when they were little.... But, on a whim, I did a search and found that several of my friends (listed in my email) are also members.

I' invited' them to be my 'friend' - at least they are in my age bracket. Can't wait to explore why they are on Facebook. Probably all joined because of their kids, also.

God, I feel old..... But, I think it's important to keep current. My Dad was just boggled over my the computer and had NO concept of the internet. As hard as it is to keep up with today's technology - if you don't 'use it - you loose it'
