    Sounds like a scene right out of the south park episode on facebook. Although I did delete my facebook for many of the reasons listed here among others, there are some valid reasons to use it. For one, many people that partake in hobbies such as ours will create groups where they can discuss things, post pictures, etc. which will serve a lot of the same purposes as this forum does. I personally prefer the forum to a facebook group, but you can see why some would like it the other way around as well. Secondly, keeping in touch with family and friends that you no longer live near is another very valid reason.

    Then, we get to the part where people are just posting up what they did and how much they drank last night just for the world to see and think they're cool. And that's where I left. Sure, I would go out to a party in college and get unbelievably smashed, but I never felt the need to tell everyone about it. I was there and met people and had a good time and that's about where it ends. I lived on a campus; if you don't want to talk to me except on facebook after that, then don't talk to me just to boost your friend count or possibly catch me going to another party you're not invited to when you have nothing to do. There's no need to communicate with me through facebook when you could probably walk to my door in less than 5 minutes or even just call or text my cell phone.

    [/rant]

    I could go on, but don't really feel like it since It'll probably turn into a five paragraph essay.

    LOL, I have facebook I use it to hold my photos...lol also alot of LFS and clubs use it for announcements so I use it to track those also. Infact on my Fb profile it says and I quote

    "This face book profile is only for conversations revolving around the maintenance and photography of Salt Water & Fresh Water fish as a hobby. If you want to talk about anything else you have come to the wrong place."....lol I wasn't sure how facebook would feel if I stated I was just using them for a photo album..lol

    I refuse to join any of those things like face book or my space. If I want to talk to friends or family I phone them, go see them in person or a last resort email them. I don't like the idea of every Tom, Dick or Harry knowing my buisness or seeing my pics etc. If I think they should see them I will show them in person or send it in an email. I spend enough time on a computer at work and the few forums I belong too lol. I do not twitter or twatter or text or any other of that stuff so I guess I am a dinosaur in that reguards. I use my phone to actually talk to people lol...imagine that talking to people. So I guess I am about as old as Rue when it comes to this stuff lol.

    LOL...funny stuff...

    I do have a Facebook account - got it almost at the beginning (on the enthusiastic advice of a friend)...and Twitter...I like to try stuff out. But I don't use them. I don't use Twitter at all (I fail to see the point of it) and I only use Facebook to check up on people who won't communicate any other way.

    Trillianne: I'm glad you don't think I'm on my way to being the crazy cat lady...

    Parrot lady maybe...but not cat lady...

    Well the thing to do is you have to get "practice cats" where you have two cats for years. Then when you finally get pushed over the edge into crazy cat lady land you have plenty of experience and only need to "increase your school of them"

    Yeah, I'm with Sailor up there... ..and Rue.

    Me=No Spacebook, No Myface, No texting...heck I don't even own a cell phone.

    I'm kind of dinosauric...or jurassic...I actual LIKE to talk to people, and have them listen. Of course I will return the favor with equal enthusiasm.
