    Default About Facebook

    Once upon a time around 15 years ago, social media consisted of chatrooms, blogs and the advent of forums. Then came myspace, twitter and of course, Facebook. For me, Facebook is the only way I can keep up with the people I graduated with (since no one ever uses actual mail anymore). While I don't post a great deal on Facebook, I do spend a few hours a week reading the plethora of information that is provided. So what are your thoughts on Facebook and what kind of place does it have in your life? How much information are you willing to share on Facebook?

    ^-^

    Happy Easter ! - Songbird It is good to have you here. - princesspink Enjoy your day!!!  Hugs - princesspink

    I rarely go on Facebook and even more rarely post.

    I can't stand it honestly. If I see my 1000th picture of my niece's baby (adorable as she is) or have to see where another of my friends went for dinner (or worse cooked for dinner), I go crazy.

    Worse are my friends who post about their trips to the Bahamas with their new loves, their skyrocketing careers, pictures of their kids riding camels (yes, this is true and not at a zoo, but on the Sahara desert). They make me feel like ****. With my generally average, if adorable kids. My lack of a loved one, never mind one that takes me to the beach. And, the fact that though I have no desire to do so, I have never ridden on a camel in my life.

    It is nice to see your old boyfriends and friends in present time, but not when they are having so much more fun and excitement in their lives than me!
    He speaks my name; My heart listens; My body enflamed;My skin flushed
    For when my name; Is uttered from his lips; I feel known, heard; Craved, needed

    None..don't use it. If there are people I haven't spoken to since I graduated there a good reason for it.

    I do agree with Katy.......However......I am an active member on Facebook.......Only ONE person out of all my Facebook "friends" do I see on a regular basis......I enjoy what others post......I generally do not friend people that I find offensive......Or drama seekers.......I stay away from that whole bunch......I have felt bad about myself at times.....Like Katy......Because I do not have a significant other......And my children are average children......But I try to take it all in stride......

    I hardly ever use my Facebook account and share very little when I do happen to log in. Now I use it mostly to stalk relatives I no longer speak to.

    I resisted it for a long time and never used my account, but then I got divorced and I changed my name on Facebook simply adding my maiden name! I have reconnected with so many old friends and actually gotten closer to those that I have always kept in touch with, but sporadically!

    Here's the thing I have figured out...Facebook isn't for when I have a bad day (I never post about my feelings especially the negative ones!)!!

    I post pictures of my kids, pay homage to my parents and family and Get all kinds of information I normally wouldn't! Some of the recipes are great and I belong to a few in town groups so I always know the happenings around town which is great for me and the kids!

    Facebook is a community that when used in a responsible way, block the idiots, turn off notifications, unfollow most and make your page private will be a good source of community information!

    If I want to know What Kind Of Sex Do You Feel Like Having Today or Arouse Me With 5 Words then I'll come here!

    Ohhh and I have one preteen and a 9 yr old and they desperately want social media so I will have accounts to monitor theirs on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and ooooh I know theres another one I just can't think of right now! I have no choice, but to be out there and actively keeping my kids safe in cyber world!

    I do use FB on a regular basis, there are a few groups I belong to that have great training information. I am also the admin of a group there that allows others in the fire service to share training, job related jokes and just to stay in touch with each other. I do not allow BS, or negativity. It's a pretty private group, only allowed in if I know you and your background.


    I take a lot of what is in the feeds with a grain of salt, if your every post is whoas me or your current health condition every 30 seconds, drama, you are unfriended.


    its a place to go and get a few laughs, catch up with friends I don't see regularly, like all social media, I take it at face value.

    I use it to keep up with friends and family that don't live close by. Sometimes I think people tend to post way to much in the way of personal information on their pages. I have some friends that will post things and not think of the consequences of doing so until much much later.

    I keep things that are personal to myself and refuse to post about certain things.
