I gotta bad vibe at the start. The first person ever to invite me as a friend>>She knew many things about me yet i knew nothing of her.
Great place to find information to assist in stalking someone though.
everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?
I hate the idea of anyone being able to find out information about me or easily keep track of me/look over my shoulder. I hate the idea of being accountable to anyone in that way. I do think it is useful for networking. But I like my privacy too much, so no FB for me.
I guess I have a Facebook account, if I could remember how to get to it.
I fail to see the point of these social networking sites, except for people who already know each other. Therefore, I do see the "social" aspect of them, but not the "networking" aspect, as you don't really "meet" anyone new on these sites, but rather just share pictures etc. with people you already know. (It seems - or maybe just not me 'cause I'm an introvert? ) Forums such as this one seem like much more of a "networking" system than Myspace or Facebook do. Especially with the new vBulletin features such as friends, blogs, and albums for forums, I fail to see the point of sites such as Facebook or Myspace anymore. I feel they are already outmoded and have been replaced by things like Twitter (or Tweeter, or whatever the name of that fad that will last another 12 seconds is), Youtube, and whatever new thing the kiddies are Googling that we don't even know about yet but that some 15 year-old working out of his parent's garage will sell on the stock market for 1 billion...
<-- is more than over Internet fads; yet, is moving every zig for great justice!

I think it is useful for freelancers. I have a friend who works in film/T.V. who gets a lot of work through facebook. He uses it primarily for work.
Facebook freaks the shit outta me... I completely disappeared when I was 20 and didn't resurface till a couple years ago. Then MySpace and Facebook came along and there were all these people I went to school with (some I met in kindergarden) and here we are, all grown up, exposing the world to the choices we've made. It's fascinating to catch a glimpse of their lives, but often disturbing as well. I don't really know these people, they don't really know me, and if we really did know each other, we'd realize why we haven't spoken in 15 years.
The wierdest thing about Facebook, as opposed to MySpace, is that you can delete your account and then sign back in later on and everything comes back, like it never happened. I delete my account on a weekly basis. I should probably delete it again before I go to bed...
I just found the 'Typology Center' on Facebook, and applied to join..but I have to be accepted?
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
