My sister convinced me to join F-B. Unfotunetly, (Or not), I'm not real Tech savvy.
But I joined.

The next day I had 60 (SIXTY!) E-Mail notifications.
"Out with the family chowing down on doughnuts"
"Put a new muffler on the car''
So & so caught the boyfriend cheating, etc,etc.

If there's something you want me to know, call or E-Mail me.
You can text, but I don't respond to them. Also, I check my E-Mail 2 or 3 times a week.

Go to settings and turn OFF all notifications.
I do not get email from FB. A message but no email, for privacy and security only.

Itís not for everyone, and thatís okay. Many people enjoy using it, but need a lesson from a 12 yr old on privacy settings. Mine is locked down tight. If I donít know you, you donít see anything.

I have a blank page and don't tell people I know that I have it. I cant see that anyone would be interested in my daily rants and who I am friends with. I only have it for easy access to look up various bike events and runs. My workers are on it every time we stop working for a minute. Usually too busy staring at it to see the pretty girls walk by. Saves them developing social skills though.

Two of my friends keep joking that they will create a FB for me.
I told them that whoever puts me on FB will get:
- unfriended on FB
- kicked in the nuts
- his throat slit
In that particular order, for maximum pain (physical and emotional).

They stopped joking about that. (they've seen me how fast I am with my knife) *shrug*

While I agree that Facebook has a bunch of "less than desirable" folks on there, I do have to admit that it had been great for my business. I have a small handyman company, and my local neighborhood (and some adjoining) have Facebook accounts set up for the neighborhoods. They cover yard sales, lost pets, etc,,, but one of the main benefits is folks looking for someone to do some specific task (i.e. - drywall, painting, electrical). At this point, I get about 70% of my business from Facebook referrals and/or inquiries. So, while I don't do much "socializing" on this social site,,, I definitely milk it for everything I can from the business standpoint.
Just another view from a different angle.

I work in the corrections field and it makes me laugh that my crims still are silly enough to post stuff not realizing the police and the dept for corrections have people trawling facebook everyday. One of my blokes (crim) had a picture of himself holding a shotgun across his chest as a homepage and no gun licence. When the cops showed up they said you make it easy for us and we will make it easy for you. He replied " in my bedside draw" They opened up to $20,000 and 100 ecstasy pills "thanks for that but where is the shotgun, that is what we are here for." He confessed that the shotgun was his mates fathers and he had just held it for the photo. He got charged for the drugs and ended up with me. He wasn't amused when he told me about it and I laughed and laughed.
