Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

I actually think its pretty freaking gay for guys to have a face book account but I'm pretty old school. I also don't tweet and have never sent a text msg.

Yes they invented it for women so they have facebook which is the phone of the internet. That way the man does not have to listen to them as they chat on the phone.

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

I have no desire whatsoever to join Facebook. Most of my friends are on there, and you know what? I still keep up with them just fine. Between email and text messages, that's enough. It's just such a huge time suck. When I was on MySpace, I would get sucked in and next thing I knew I had been in front of the computer for like 2 hours.

Plus like Schneed says- all the privacy issues are a big turn-off - Facebook "accidentally" leaks access to user names and passwords, etc etc. No thanks. I just don't feel any need to put my business out there, even if I can control the privacy settings (right up until Facebook screws up and has yet another privacy breakdown).

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

I'll never win this so I agree its perfectly normal for guys to post their life history on the internet and share it with other guys.

Facebook isn't anonymous. I'm not sure how posting on the Warpath is anything like Facebook, aside from the fact they're both on the internet.

I created a GMScud profile on Facebook so now I just pretend to be you on there

I think the huge time suck thing is sort of what you make of it. I mean if you get caught up in the games and all that then yeah but if you just check it on occassion as a quick way to catch up with friends and family then it's not so much, in my opinion. One thing it's good for, in my opinion, is as a shared photo album with friends and family.

To be honest if my job did not put me infront of a computer all day I'd probably have under 200 post here. Not that I don't like posting here its just that I do not spend much time infront of a computer when I'm not at work. Just look at my post history. I'm joking when I say its gay its just not for me. I have plenty of friends who have a FB account and I joke on them as well.

This basically answers the question how this board is different then being on FB. Good job GM!

To me facebook is cyber small talk, I hate when someone calls me from the past out of the blue and you have to go through your life story about what has been going on.

I am horrible with staying in touch with folks. If you are "in my life" right now great but once we move on good luck to you.
