Actually that's probably the way I would have tried spelling that word.

This place is configured differently, but they're both virtual communities, this place just has a more focused niche.

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

Anyway, facebook is facebook. What I mean is you go there to share details of your life through words and photos. On a very basic level, that's all there is to it. Some people take it to the extreme, others not so much.

Similarly many of us visit Warpath to post pictures from training camp, photos and videos of live football games, our man caves, spouses, babies, and friends. We discuss and share intimate details of our lives: Weddings, deaths and births, firings and hirings and everything in between. Hell, there's been more advice given here than Dr. Phil could only dream about! Seriously. Just about every damn thing under the sun is and has been discussed, analyzed, and dissected here on Warpath. We've made this into much more than just a football forum, we're a community. And that's what facebook is all about, your own little community that you shape.

I don't always come to Warpath to talk football. So to completely dismiss facebook as some freaky, new social phenomenon, to me, means that one isn't completely informed about what facebook is/isn't or they're not aware, or at least honest, about how they choose to interact with others here on Warpath in a very similiar way; as a social outlet.

I suppose on some level what we do here is less acceptable by social norms. I've never met any of you, yet I visit and talk to you almost daily. At least on facebook I know all the mofos I'm talking to. My 12 cents.

The good news First and Scud, is that you've got a shot with Betty White. A shot I guess I'll never have since I'm on FaceBook...although Longtimefan might be more her cup of tea

Betty White Goes Wild - A-Line: the celebrity style blog - omg! on Yahoo

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

You know what would be weird to me is to merge my facebook world and my Warpath world together. Like, I would never 'friend' any of you on facebook. Well, maybe Hessy but I digress

I really enjoy being unanimous.

There is something to be said about being unanimous on here. If you ask for advice people just focus on your issue there is no hidden agenda, where as a family member can't give you a completely straight answer becasue of all of their basis towards you. Am I making sense?

True, but I don't go to facebook for advice. So being unanimous really doesn't matter to me when comparing the two worlds, as far as advice goes. In fact, facebook is about putting yourself out there, no being unanimous.

Way to promote your site there, Matty. :cheeky-sm

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

I am like Quake. I dont love or hate Facebook. Don't see too many negatives, you just have to be smart on it like anything else in the world.

Don't allow everyone to see your full profile, don't type dumb things, post dumb pictures and put too much personal information.
