    I wanted to start a thread about this facebook thingy that, it seems, a lot of people are joining lately. I joined when the links was shut down to keep in touch with linkers just in case this place was shut down.
    When I joined, I had the display name of "Brew Crew" not knowing anything about facebook etc...
    One day I decided to change it to my actual name. Well, since I did that, I have been in contact with soooo many people that I haven't heard from in many years!!
    This thread is just to let everyone here discuss their experiences on facebook and maybe get more people to join up to see what it's all about.

    *Note*... I am not suggesting people post their real name here in this thread. If you want to let someone here know who you are on facebook, please pm them!
    Just go for it!

    I've gotten in touch via facebook, and MySpace with people that I hadn't heard from, or had even thought about in years. It's very cool. It's kind of like having a school reunion without having to travel hundreds of miles to see people that you didn't like going to school with anyway!

    Go ahead and add me, I'm beginning to take a much greater liking to Facebook than MySpace these days.

    I agree with both Vike and vhrocks. I also have a myspace acct, but it kind of died out since the facebook "explosion". Myspace allows you to make your page look very cool, yet facebook has a much better searching feature to find friends (and "friends/relatives" find you). I am still trying to get used to the new facebook layout. I actually had to customize my wall so I wouldn't have to read thru all my "friends" updates etc. I am not saying I don't want to read what they are up to, it's just the new update has EVERYTHING anyone does on facebook on your start up "wall".
    Just go for it!

    I was in my second year of college at the time facebook started. I think it started in the summer and I heard about it in the fall and originally it was only for college students. So you had to use a college email address to join and it had to be from an approved college and at the time I was still in community college and it wasn't on the list at the time. So I couldn't until I applied in the following spring to the university I eventually graduated from (Texas A&M) and they gave me an email address just for applying so I got a head start. So it's now been about 4 years that I've been on facebook and I think it's great. I can't imagine not having it and I can keep in touch with exponentially more people, even if just a "hey how are ya" every now and then. I also love having more frequent contact with cousins and other family. I have a myspace too, but I prefer facebook for the reasons you've mentioned. It's more organized. I don't do hardly anything on myspace anymore. Anyway eventually they started letting high schoolers in and then everyone after that.

    The Wife told me set up a facebook years ago. I did and never thought about it again. Then, about a month ago, I managed to track down a dear friend of mine from years past and she had a facebook. So now I check it regularly, i've updated it with photos and such.

    I setup a Facebook account over a year ago and never used it. And then all of the sudden I started getting friend requests from people I used to work with at my high school summer job 20 years ago. I started using it more and more and have reconnected with people from many of my different jobs over the years as well as some college fraternity brothers I haven't talked to in many years.

    I've thought about getting on FB a few times, just can't bring myself to put my name out there like that and it seems pointless unless you use your real name.

    That was my concern. With MySpace I don't have my real name on my profile and it's private so only people who I tell how to look for me and then approve them have access to my page.

    Facebook allows for all sorts of securities to prevent people from finding you even if they know your name. I've got mine set so that I don't appear in any searches and Facebook is programmed so that unless you are approved, you can't see someone's profile anyways so it's not like someone can read or see anything without your approval.

    I LOVE Facebook. I just joined a few months ago. I have gotten in touch with a ton of people from HS who I thought I'd never see again. It's the best!

    I am also completely addicted to GeoChallenge, one of the Playfish games. I am currently an airline pilot! LOL

    Yes, its great that I re-connected w/this incredibly awesome person. Only problem is we are both married now and have kids. Still, the more I talk to her, the more I regret not stopping her from leaving that night 12 years ago. As the video for RHRN says, "Nothing is more expensive than regret."
