Now *I* have a question for *you*! Posted on July 9, 2007 by Aimee 0share Facebook Threads Pinterest EmailSince I was all cool and filled you in on RSS, you need to fill me in on something else. What the hell is Facebook? What I am doing there and what it will do for me? Is it like just a gigantic address book? A gigantic singles bar? What?!?! 0share Facebook Threads Pinterest Email You May Also Like Family One plan that didn’t go awry… January 6, 2007 Uncategorized So proud of us.

Anxiously awaiting the answer… Sizzle July 9, 2007 i got talked into being on facebook but frankly, it is confusing! and i don’t go on there very often. random people add me as a friend and i don’t even know who they are. i get myspace. i don’t get facebook. it’s a waste of time if you ask me. 🙂 aimee / greeblemonkey July 9, 2007 Yeah, I went under Aimee Greeblemonkey. And I don’t get MySpace either. This is going to sound rude, but it’s like fast and fugly blogging? aimee / greeblemonkey July 10, 2007 The glitter! bwaa haa haa! And Wackadoo… Hmm, so you can share photos within Facebook? That makes sense. Except I am the only one with photos in my family, so they can all come here, double bwaa haa haa! Alpha DogMa July 9, 2007 I’m on Facebook, under the alias of Al Phadogma. I’m deeply suspicious of the site. If you log on under your real name, anyone can find you with a simple name search, see what groups you belong to (alumnai, interests, hobbies, regional areas) and view who is in your friends listing. People can email you or poke you and request you be added to your friends list and vice versa. If you ‘friend’ someone they have access to your photo album and can send you messages and notes. There is a gift shop where people can purchase icons to decorate their personal pages. The company uses this – plus banner ads – to generate money. BUT they (supposedly) harvest personal information about users and sell to third party vendors. I’m just not that nostaligic enough to out myself to old classmates or old boyfriends. I find lurking rather amusing, but I’ve other friends who claim it is really addictive. And I waste enough time on blogging, I don’t need to diversify. Catherine July 10, 2007 I somehow got sucked into the vortex that is Facebook, too. I applaud you for putting the question out there — Wha?? And why am I there again?? soccer mom in denial July 9, 2007 Haven’t gone there and don’t plan to. I’m already neglecting way too much of my life with blogging. Oh, The Joys July 10, 2007 I am there and don’t get it at all. (and people keep POKING me. What the heck is that about?) Wack-A-Do July 9, 2007 My family and I use Facebook for sharing photos and keeping up with each other because not every member is as savvy as us blogging gods and goddesses. It helps to spread the info using a single location. Em July 10, 2007 Hee hee! Facebook was originally only for people in high school and/or college. They recently opened it up for those of us no longer in either of those categories. Facebook is also used in some companies. My sisters convinced me to join just recently because there was a large number of people from our college on it. It certainly could be better but I do enjoy the food fight application with my bro-in-law. Also the pics app is really nice. Alpha DogMa July 10, 2007 Fast and fugly blogging – awesome! Myspace – if you didn’t have ADD when you first logged on, you will win you leave. The Glitter. The flashing avatars. The ugly overpowering wallpaper motifs. The music that plays without prompting. The Glitter. The GLITTTER! It is too much. mamalicious July 10, 2007 I love it when you write “bwa haa haa!” aimee / greeblemonkey July 10, 2007 Poking? Food fights? I guess I need to go do a tutorial. That sounds kinda fun. Sassy July 11, 2007 em has it right on the button. My take is that it’s like MySpace de-skankified. I had to sign up for it for a class last year and be forewarned– it’s addictive. And a little scary– some of my students have friended me there and I’m a little skeeved out at what they can find out about my personal life (thank God for limited profiles). I kind of find the “Note” feature to be a washed-out version of a blog for most people. (She says in her holier-than-thou voice) It kind of annoys me. But oh, dear. If you get started with iLike we may never see you again. And Food Fight is rockin’ cool. aimee / greeblemonkey July 11, 2007 Ok, I still can’t find the Food Fight option. aimee / greeblemonkey July 11, 2007 And P.S. I “iLike” already… check out my right navigation. 😉 Em July 12, 2007 If you browse the applications you’ll find it eventually. Either that or someone will hit you with something.
