Very rarely now. I'm not a Tweeting Twat who's obsessed with Twitter, so the new format is very off-putting to me. I was on the old site (the last iteration) frequently, though.

I was recently badgered into joining by an old friend.

It's not my sort of thing, but it is nice to be in touch with a crowd I have history with.

I do use a psuedonym, becuse I am not looking to "network" with people I don't already know.

I've looked at it- my buddy is on it. I'm not.

IMO, it's a waste of time.

I've been on it about a year...use it mainly to chat occasionally w/ friends from high school (after our 20th reunion last year, a lot joined Facebook), college, grad school, and past jobs in Colorado. It's been fun....nice to reconnect w/ some people I hadn't talked w/ in years. Only people I know IRL and since I've lived in so many places over the years, people are spread out all over..even stay in touch w/ a grad school buddy who is in Sweden.

I use Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, each has it's place and purpose.

Again we agree ... I avoid Facebook and Myspace, to me, you're lacking something in your life if you are on them ... Besides, there's a creepy child porn stigma if your over 30 and on there ... :P

A long time ago a friend told me to get a facebook, so I did. I spent five minutes setting it up the night I got it and haven't looked at it since. Couldn't remember the password if you had a gun to my head and don't really care, either.

I felt the same way about it as you and Balthazar, and PCS.

Until my friend badgered me into it.

Now it's kinda nice the way I have it setup, so that a bunch of old friends are now in touch with me again. We never e-mailed each other, and were slack about calling, and are spread all over the country, so being in touch isn't a bad thing.

That said, all of the extra BS on there still turns me off.

Das ist forbotten in my house and my daughter knows it ... I have software loaded that allows me to see every keystroke ...

Yeah I know, Germany 1939, but it works for me ...

My parenting style is a bit different. I prefer the KGB parent style over the Nazi parenting style. :lol:

I have an account but don't go on it often. Though I should.

As with most everything, it's only a waste of time if you waste a lot of time on it.

I'm on it, but only to stay in touch with my friends from all over the country. Some of my family work in the U.S. and I keep in touch with many of my former co-workers, so it's easier to contact each other through Facebook. They get to see how my son is growing and how my wife's pregnancy is going. Other than that, I hate applications and rarely update my status. It's not a social-networking thing as much as just a better form of e-mail for me.

I started on Myspace, but I couldn't stand all the personal splash screens and glitter $h! that bogged everything down, so I switched to Facebook.

Many find it pointless, but Facebook is a great way to keep in contact with old friends...especially for me since I'm now out of college and everybody is scattered across the country. I really like sending messages to keep in touch and checking out people's photos (especially if they do some traveling). I could care less about the status updates, the apps, and the chat in general. It's definitely a site skewered toward younger demographics; I've been on it since it launched in '04 for the college crowd and 90% of my friends / acquaintances are on it.

I have Myspace, but I don't really like it that much. I check it once every couple days. The ability to personalize your page is the drawback to that site...3/4 of the users there have to put up the most obnoxious graphics, fonts, and colors and it's just a PITA to navigate through all that crap.

Well after my 25th reunion last year, the girl who organized the whole thing set up a page at Facebook for classmates to keep in touch and stay posted on upcoming reunions. So that's why I joined. This one girl I sort of had a thing with in high school found out I was on there and emailed me yesterday evening... she's a widow... and so she's all excited to "catch up". So I'm glad to hear from her and all, but I am not sure how I'll answer certain questions. The "search" function has turned up a few surprises, as well.

Since I just joined, I have no reference as far as earlier iterations of the site. It does seem to have a lot of rather useless features.

It is a high school for people who have graduated from one and still have hormones of their teens bubbling out to be a teenager again - A Cyber Orgy.

I use it. Oftentimes I use it just to mess around and post stupid status updates, but I do use a lot of the networking functionality of it.
