After reading one of the posts today, it got me thinking about the Facebook site. Most of my family are on this and laugh at me because i chose not to enroll. It's only because i would never have the time to keep up with it. I have all i can do keeping tract of messages here and viewing all the pics. What little time i have other than that i would rather be quilting! Am i missing something?

I dont have it, because I am on dial up and cant post pictures. I check BFs though, because our kids are all on there, so easy to keep up with them.

it's WAY to easy to get yourself in trouble on there. I mean with all the creaps, thieves, predators on there IMO

If you're missing something so am I. I have email for people I want to keep in touch with. I know I'm a dinosaur but really don't feel the need to know everything about everyone all the time.

I lurk, have an account but rarely post. The people I want to hear from rarely post, the people I don't care so much about are on all the time.

I do have a FB account, but check it so infrequently that I might as well not. I honestly do not get how some people can spend hours there. I barely care what I'm up to every minute of the day. I really can't get that interested in other folks.

I am on it and that is how I read up on a lot of my family's events and see pictures of g.kids etc. I don't post much - occasionally comment on others posts. I like it and it seems safe to me because only the people you make your "friends" are seeing my stuff.

Well, whatever you're missing I am too. Like you, I barely have time to get the things done I need to get done. My extra time will be cruising this board, sewing or reading. And, personally, I don't think I am so interesting that everyone has to know everything I do. But that's just me. My daughter is a facebooker and I know she'll get updates with high school activities, pics from her friends, what's going on with her cousins, etc. So it's a way for her to keep in touch with what's going on. I get it, it's just not for me.

I don't do Facebook because I don't trust anyone possibly getting my information. Don't you have to put in your first and last name?

Although I just started a blog. I don't know if that's safer or not??

No FB for me. I spend enough time on the computer with just this group and then don't get my quilting finished. Don't have family on there and it is just as easy if not easier to keep up with friends through emails.
