    How many Quilters use Facebook? Do you follow certain Facebook pages or mainly keep in touch with family/friends?

    I use facebook, but it got kind of overwhelming having to hide all the game things and all the craziness. I mainly use it to keep in touch with my long lost friends and family.

    There are a whole bunch of quilting related groups and businesses on facebook. I belong to several of the groups and follow several of the businesses.

    I am a dinasaur - never used facebook - not sure I want to try it. Afraid of the invasion of privacy.

    I'm one of those who wouldn't touch it with a 10' pole.

    I do....it's really helped me connect with other quilters/guilds/groups. I love to see what others are doing and see trends from other areas of the country, plus it's exposure for our small quilt shop and a way to get our name out there too.

    I love facebook. I use it to keep up with my family and friends back east. I am on it everyday and get to know what people who are close to me are up to. Anyone want to be friends just friend me and we can get aquainted. Just let me know that you are on this forum.

    I'm on Facebook, and I use it more to keep in touch with quilters and quilt-related organizations than family right now. It seems more...immediate...than a web site or email newsletter.

    And yes, I "like" Superior Threads. :)

    I'm glad to hear somebody else feels the same way I do. Unfortunately, it seems that everyone and every business is on there. I was actually told that I needed to get on there for my job as part of my duties. I told them that social media networking was not in my job description and that I wasn't comfortable with the request. Thankfully, they dropped it.

    I am on facebook everyday. It is my lifeline to my kids and grandkids since they are not close. I don't go everywhere on the site, too many viruses and such, but do enjoy a few games like bingo.

    I love Facebook. I have reconnected with many high school classmates by being on there. I "like" a couple local quilt shops but haven't joined any quilting groups on there. Figured the QB was enough! :) You just need to be a little cautious as with anything you do online.

    I have a love/hate relationship with fb. It's easy to get sucked into and spend way too much time on there. For those concerned about privacy- no one can see your "stuff" unless you want them to. It's more private than this board is, actually, because anyone in the world can access this board, but only those that you grant access to can see your information on facebook. You have the ability to decide your privacy settings. It is a really great way to stay in touch with friends and family, and an excellent way to network, promote businesses, events, etc.

    I use Facebook to keep up with my children. My daughter is always posting pictures of grandchildren and I love seeing them. I'm excited that Facebook is going to be using Skype.
    We've Skyped for a few years now. I even read bedtime stories to my grandsons even though I'm in Ca. and they are in Virginia. My daughter sets up the laptop in my grandsons bedroom and then leaves the room so my grandson and I can talk for a while and then I read him a goodnight story.
    I sure works for us.
