Yes I have facebook and I'm one who really likes it I have connected with classmates and cousins I haven't seen in years. I have 8 daughters who live all over the place and we stay in touch better through f/b and texting than by talking because we all have different work schedules. We share pictures, stories, etc. Of course it can be abused, and yes anything and everything you say is public, much like talking on a PA system in Grand Central Station. I also have some quilt board friends that are f/b friends and we use the live chat when we're both on at the same time. It has good and bad points, but I am a fan, albeit a careful one.
