Facebook

Recommended Posts

The only reason I have a Facebook account is because I needed to keep tabs on my kids when they were teens. They couldn't have an account unless I was a friend.

Even after they grew up, they haven't unfriended me. I rarely look at their pages, though, and I don't post anything.


My daughter has been posting pictures of her feet for about 15 years, though. All over the world, even before FB. She's got some really cool pics of her feet in some very cool locales.

It does help to have pretty trotters, though! :ph34r:

And it beats the heck out of Flat Stanley! :D:D:D

Facebook: what is something you've learned about someone friend /acquaintance on Facebook

Mine:There's a foot page that you can ask your friends to post weekly pics of their feet on.

Let me think: heck no!!!!

Then you might want to sit down. I'm going to tell you something rather disturbing about Facebook.

The VAST majority of kids have two accounts; one for their parents to look at, and another for their real use.

I see Shah hasn't changed a bit though.
Maybe more creepy even.

I joined the A list to change my user name....but wow the a listers have so many creepster options it's not even funny. So is it worth going a list? Honestly? no. Just kill your profile and create a new user name.

I don't have a face book, and don't want one. I'm curious, don't people "stalk" others on that site? I heard it is a big problem. I'm also told by my kids that people invent "Alter Egos" instead of using their real names. Which name do you use, or do you use your own?"

Yes, a co-worker did exactly what OWC6 did, with his daughter. He couldn't figure out why her FB page never changed...until two weeks later when her older brother ratted her out.:D

I started using it much more when I was in the military as a way of keeping up with what was going on with friends/family while I was deployed.

Just last week I got a friend request from a name I hadn't seen in over 10 years and it was someone I used to work with that I had always wondered where she ended up.

There's also some great resources available for education, for instance I'm a member of several private pilot groups where people post their questions about flight training, aircraft, 'what if' scenarios, etc... Pilots from all over the country and several world wide, of all experience levels from student to DPE's chime in with their thoughts.

Someone sent me a near group to join on Facebook that's ice really been enjoying. A member of the group needs to suggest you I think.

What's right in front of you.
People take pics and then post them. All g-rated. Lol but it's so neat getting glimpses of peoples lives and what they are doing at any given moment. Some amazing scenery from around the world plus just silly fun stuff. A peanut butter sandwich in the break room.
No matter how slowly you say oranges it never sounds like gullible.
Believe me I tried.

I'm shocked by how many of my school friends turned out to be on the political right. Not just the voting republican right, but the Tea Party, bat shit crazy, conspiracy theorist right. :S

I'm also surprised by how many of them are now 200, 300, 400 lbs obese. Stunning actually. :|:(

This.

Our 40th reunion is in 3 years, and I graduated in a small town. There may not be a space that's big enough.

Number 2 has had a lot of practice being creepy;)

I didnt notice any reference to women dress size, so he's refining his line of BS.

Also enjoyed his reference to the fact that he works for the military;):S.

I hope he finds another soul mate. B|

There wasn't a big enough place for my 30th. I can only guess what 40 will look like. :S

By 40th reunions, the attendance begins to thin out other ways.
