Yesterday, I took the plunge and signed up to Facebook, to see what all of the fuss was about. I found a few people I know on there, however, I am intrigued to find out how many AmiBayers are on there.

Well? Are you on Facebook? Would it be worth starting an AmiBay Facebook group?

Re: Okay, how many of you AmiBayers are on Facebook?

My wife was thinking of signing up for facebook, as everyone was saying she should.
So we went and we searched for our work and facebook people. Found several, including a few showing pics of them doing things that our work probably wouldn't appreciate being associated with....

We saw someone we know post that she and her 3 roommates got this great house on such and such street and it's just them and they love it...

:Doh:

All of these bank and such sites have these "questions" to reset your password (Pet's name, favorite teacher, etc) and frequently, those answers are on these sites...

She didn't sign up.. :)

Re: Okay, how many of you AmiBayers are on Facebook?

I am on there, however I only ever visit the site once in a blue moon, usually if I have a couple of new friends requests but that's about it.
I don't do the games or update my profile, it's more about keeping in touch with people.

It's not a bad site, but my missus loves it. She's on it all the time, nattering with her mates. I get all the gossip dripped into my ear. :sigh:

Erm...

Well, having been made aware of the Lamebook site (absolute comedy gold, BTW) I am not expecting 'Friends Reunited', more like 'Friends Re-Untied', if you follow me.... :blink: :popcorn:

I'll reserve my judgment on it for a few weeks....

Didn't sign up initially because of all the troubles with the TOS/EULA they had. Now there is no need to sign up :)

Re: Okay, how many of you AmiBayers are on Facebook?

I'm on it and have lots of friends who use it. I only check it once a week at most. I think it's funny that Geeks tend to use these mainstream social media sites much less than the average computer user. I always tell people the best way to get in touch with me is to call me. I'm horrible with e-mail too. :)

I'll join your group Merlin!

Re: Okay, how many of you AmiBayers are on Facebook?

My wife loves it. She is on there checking all her friends and families pages most days.

Personally I don't get the facebook obsession. Having to check everyone's pages every day in case they have posted a new picture or comment. It's virtual stalking and voyeurism. Definitely seems like Women and Teenagers are the most obsessed.

I only ever signed up to get back in contact with old school and university friends I lost contact with over the years, and for that it is good. I found a long lost best friend from secondary school and found out he had moved back down south and is now living not to far away. For this it seems much better than Friends Reunited ever was at doing that, and that was meant to be designed for that.

I also posted a 5th year secondary school picture on there to try and find as many people from my final school year and get them to tag the picture, and that has been a great success. Very interesting to see what they are all up to now. Who is married, has children, who stayed in the area, and who moved away. I was quite surprised to see a lot now live in London or over seas in high up jobs.
