It's not necessarily the "snobs amongst us", jeddy. So far I have not been able to get interested in it, although I'm fairly inundated with requests to "be friends".

Question: What is the charm of it? Do I really need to know that someone forgot to buy broccoli and has to go back to the store? What purpose does a "nudge" or a poke or a slap serve?

So, no. So far, I have responded to only one request and that was from my daughter in California. While I was there I checked around and it just doesn't grab me.

E-mail suits me just fine.

I joined Facebook a couple of months ago, at the urging of my sons. Most of my FB "friends" are a generation younger than me, and many of them (including both my boys) are aspiring comedians. My Facebook experience consists mostly of trading one-liners; I find it pretty amusing.

Of course, I'm also in touch with a fair number of Mudcatters. At first, I would always "befriend" anyone automatically suggested to me by FB when I could see that our Mutual Friends included other Mudcat characters. I've stopped doing that, but I still click "yes" when I receive a personal friend-request from pretty much anyone.

All you need to know is my real name: Tom Henehan (the one in New Orleans. I have found another guy on FB with the same name who lives in Minnesota; we're not related, as far as we can tell, and don't have a lot of common interests. We are both OLD for FB, although he's about 10 years younger than me.)

I find it a quick and easy way to keep slightly in touch with people and pass on comments - helpful, fun or.... I only have 32 friends and all except the Italian one are family or dear friends at a distance. It connects me to where I used to live and I generally comment on my fav musicians - what music I am listening to now. Found my errant niece! When she commented she was thinking of pink hair, I told her I'm thinking of purple - why not! Check in every few days in hope of new pics of grandsons, etc. Only joined because one special friend was there and I wanted to see what he was up to - lots of interesting stuff in Nova Scotia!

I went there ONCE to see the generic Mudcat place, to see what it had. I did nothing and said nothing....and suddenly my mailbox is full of people adding me. I actually know maybe 2/3 of them.

I don't think my brain is wired for a site that 'introduces' you, even when you are standing in the shadows trying to be inconspicuous.

I gotta think about this... I can get PMs from Mudcatters who really need to contact me.

Why Facebook Is for Old Fogies
By Lev Grossman

Facebook is five. Maybe you didn't get it in your news feed, but it was in February 2004 that Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg, along with some classmates, launched the social network that ate the world. Did he realize back then in his dorm that he was witnessing merely the larval stage of his creation? For what began with college students has found its fullest, richest expression with us, the middle-aged. Here are 10 reasons Facebook is for old fogies:

1. Facebook is about finding people you've lost track of. And, son, we've lost track of more people than you've ever met. Remember who you went to prom with junior year? See, we don't. We've gone through multiple schools, jobs and marriages. Each one of those came with a complete cast of characters, most of whom we have forgotten existed. But Facebook never forgets. (See the best social-networking applications.)

2. We're no longer bitter about high school. You're probably still hung up on any number of petty slights, but when that person who used to call us that thing we're not going to mention here, because it really stuck, asks us to be friends on Facebook, we happily friend that person. Because we're all grown up now. We're bigger than that. Or some of us are, anyway. We're in therapy, and it's going really well. These are just broad generalizations. Next reason.

3. We never get drunk at parties and get photographed holding beer bottles in suggestive positions. We wish we still did that. But we don't. (See pictures of Beer Country in Denver.)

4. Facebook isn't just a social network; it's a business network. And unlike, say, college students, we actually have jobs. What's the point of networking with people who can't hire you? Not that we'd want to work with anyone your age anyway. Given the recession — and the amount of time we spend on Facebook — a bunch of hungry, motivated young guns is the last thing we need around here.

5. We're lazy. We have jobs and children and houses and substance-abuse problems to deal with. At our age, we don't want to do anything. What we want is to hear about other people doing things and then judge them for it. Which is what news feeds are for.

6. We're old enough that pictures from grade school or summer camp look nothing like us. These days, the only way to identify us is with Facebook tags. (See pictures of a diverse group of American teens.)

7. We have children. There is very little that old people enjoy more than forcing others to pay attention to pictures of their children. Facebook is the most efficient engine ever devised for this.

8. We're too old to remember e-mail addresses. You have to understand: we have spent decades drinking diet soda out of aluminum cans. That stuff catches up with you. We can't remember friends' e-mail addresses. We can barely remember their names.

9. We don't understand Twitter. Literally. It makes no sense to us. (See the top 10 celebrity Twitter feeds.)

10. We're not cool, and we don't care. There was a time when it was cool to be on Facebook. That time has passed. Facebook now has 150 million members, and its fastest-growing demographic is 30 and up. At this point, it's way cooler not to be on Facebook. We've ruined it for good, just like we ruined Twilight and skateboarding. So git! And while you're at it, you damn kids better get off our lawn too.

Some of the most powerful and useful tools at our disposal are not being used to anywhere near their full potential, which is a crying shame given the effect that they could have if used properly or at all.

The Internet is a medium that we have at our disposal, it is where we can flourish. It is the one single platform we have that (as yet) cannot be edited, corrupted or controlled. So we had damn well better start to make the most of it whilst we still can. It has served us well thus far.

I feel we have the most important and most beneficial tools at our disposal. There are Facebook, bebo,Twitter, MySpace, Livejournal and Digg-it.

Each and every one of us has the option and ability to share or send the article they have just read to each and every one of these other social networks.

For example, I have around 350 friends / contacts on Facebook alone. Once I have read an article I can click the Facebook Icon below and deliver this page to 350 friends in a single mouse click. How long would it take you to send that out in emails?

Better still, if one of my 350 friends then shared this page with his 350 friends and he then shared it with 350 of his friends… you get the picture!

These are very powerful tools, please, please start to make the most of them. If you are not Internet savvy, at least make the effort to try and become Internet savvy.

I think everyone should have at least one one social website page.

Facebook is crap, Simon, because it's allowing false pages to be made in the names of many Mudcat members. Then those pages are being used to send out sexist and racist messages.

We've all told Facebook about this, but they do bugger all.

So, the internet can be used for tremendous good, true....but it can also be used for tremendous evil.

Myspace is pretty good though. Twitter drives me bats. Bebo has the same crank on it that Facebook does, the one who makes false pages, that is, although on Bebo he just highly insults folks on here..and your last two I've never heard of.

A US woman whose two children were reported missing 15 years ago has tracked them down using Facebook.

The children's father, Faustino Utrera, took off with them in 1995 when they were aged two and three, said deputy district attorney Kurt Rowley.

The mother, from southern California, found her daughter's Facebook profile after searching for her name on the social networking site in March, Mr Rowley said.

They were traced in Florida and officials said the now 17-year-old girl and her 16-year-old brother have been placed in the custody of the state.

"You can imagine the feelings she's having, not seeing her children for so many years and knowing they've bonded with another family," Mr Rowley said about the mother. "But at the same time they're almost within her grasp."

The two teenagers are being cared for by a non-relative in Florida with whom the pair have an existing relationship, said Florida Department of Children and Families spokeswoman Elizabeth Arenas.

Police in Florida detained Utrera on an arrest warrant last month obtained by prosecutors who were contacted by the missing children's mother. He was charged with kidnapping and violating child custody orders.

I don't understand why this thread is "BS" but the one titled "Mudcatters on Facebook" is in the music section. Or, for that matter, why the two threads haven't been merged.

I signed up for Facebook because it seemed to be the only way I could send a message to an author on a topic I cared about.

I signed up, and before I had typed one word, Facebook put up pictures of my friends and said 'Do you want to talk to these people?' That was creepy!

There also were pictures of people I had never heard of. Why was my name linked to theirs?

I sent the message to the author, then removed myself from Facebook. After that, I started getting bad spam though I had never been getting any before. Things like fake notices from DHL and UPS about undeliverable packages. Fortunately, the bad spam has tapered off.

I intend to stick with the Mudcat for my internet socializing.

I used to use Facebook and it was good to find family members who had lost touch and my ex-husband's youngest sisters who I'd lost touch with because of circumstances. We never stopped liking each other it was just life that made us drift apart. But Facebook allowed us to catch up and fill in the gaps about what had been happening in their lives and mine. But whether or not I could be bothered regularly is another thing. I used to use my youngest son's pc and took the opportunity to use it when I was visiting him. Navigating the site on my phone I found was such a pain that in the end it was easier to give them a ring or send a message.

One weird thing somehow this bloke popped up who reckoned he knew me and I honestly didn't know him from Adam, I didn't persue it just in-case.

Facebook is the one site on the internet that is probably the most used. The amount of Facebook users are increasing dramatically on a daily basis. Facebook started out as a social networking site which mainly consisted of lots of young users but as Facebook currently stands there are users of all ages and walks of life.

The computer security of Facebook is reaching alarming heights and Facebook users should be aware of the growing computer security concerns. Inclusive in the Facebook security concerns is fake profiles. Facebook is currently being flooded with fake profiles. Due to the huge daily registration rate on Facebook, it is hard to keep track of who is a regular user and who is a Facebook fake.

It has recently been discovered that over forty percent of new Facebook profiles are actually fake. The question that may be asked is why are people setting up fake Facebook profiles?

The fake profiles include photographs of real people. Once the fake Facebook profiles are set up a person's identity is on the web forever.


Facebook does have an extremely clear policy with regard to fake profiles. According to Facebook and its policy a fake profile will be deleted when the Facebook teams becomes aware of it. Fake profiles are causing huge problems for many innocent Facebook users who have genuine profiles.

Don't take everything on Facebook at face value.
