At least they apologized for all the chaos with this new mini-feed. That was pretty cool of them.

I think they are just desperate to come up with tools unique from myspace.

So ... I'm the last person ever to sign up for Facebook?

I don't know what all this discussion is about, but I finally signed up tonight and am blown away by all the people I was friends with in high school and college I haven't talked to in years.

So far, I think it's pretty damn cool.

I fuckin' hate Facebook, but I've still got an account.

For now, that is. I hear they're going to put ads on the discussion walls and make 'em look like they're coming from friends. That happens, and I'm getting rid of it that very day.

It was great when only college students had access

I find it boring and a bit of a waste of time.

Not like here which is really fun but also sucks away the hours like they were seconds.

It's a "social networking site," whatever that means in plain English. As far as I'm concerned, it's just a great way for me to reach out to old friends I might not ever have found otherwise.

And my brother, who never communicates with anyone in the family.

This summer, I was working my usual walk through and lock buildings job. And I walked through a building and found someone's very nice/expensive phone.

My first thought was EBAY! But then I thought again and decided to look on it to find out who's it was.

I found a name of the owner, and I looked him up on the college website but...nothing there told me where he lived.

So I went to facebook. Not only did I find out his full name. I also found out what street he lived on, the cell phone number, his aim screenname, his home phone and address(ohio), his girlfriend's name(and yes, I did go on hers and could find her local address as well), and his plans for the night.

Best thing about it all was I found out on facebook he was trying to sell the cell phone I found that night. Weird.

Nope.

I've yet to make the leap.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah, I don't understand why anyone would post their address and phone number on the web.

I thought you couldn't view the profile info unless they had you as a "friend," or is that not correct?

^ I think that's only if they didn't put themselves on the most stringent privacy setting, although, I don't know why anyone wouldn't.

And there's no way I'm putting my phone number and address anywhere on the Web. That's just dumb, imo.

I've not signed up for Facebook and likely never will. I'm in touch with everyone I want to be in touch with.
