Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

first, nice recovery. you are definitely a prime suspect in asking people to google stuff for you. If you contest this, I will find at least 10 posts where you ask about something which can be easily googled.

define closing one? just change your options to not receive messages and everything I guess?

what's the point in "closing" a facebook, whatever in the hell that is? to allow yourself to still see content?

FD - what do you mean by close? Do you want to keep the account, but just keep people who are not your "friends" from accessing your profile?

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

He is just grasping at straws to try to win this argument. Closing and deleting are same. If "closing" means something different for him, then he is using the wrong term.

Re: Your Opinion on Facebook

Unless closing to him, means logging out or closing his browser window. The plebeian free-version makes that a lot more difficult.

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).
Well, I bit the bullet. My wife signed up for Facebook on New Year's day. She gave into the urging of dozens of her friends. So of course, once she signed up, I got a bunch of crap for not being on there. Basically "my husband is like a ghost because he's not a facebook" type stuff. She was half-kidding, but I went ahead and signed up anyway.

I was actually pleasantly surprised. Within hours of signing up, I had reconnected with lots of my friends from my college days down in Florida who I haven't spoken to or seen in several years. Plus I put lots of wedding/honeymoon pics up for family and friends to see.

I'm not spending much time on there, but it's been pretty cool to look at pictures of old friends who have since started families. I certainly don't see myself turning into one of these people who is habitually updating their status, checking for friend requests, etc etc.

I see my primary usage as sharing photos with friends/family.

I like seeing old friends and what their up to, and im just getting to that age where people are starting to get married and having kids and stuff. Whats really wierd is when you see a girl you banged back in the day with a kid. I think if i started a family i would de friend all the people im not close to or still keep at least moderatly in touch with.
