    Why Facebook... or Myspace for that matter?

    One of my kids and several co-workers and friends have suggested signing up for Facebook and/or Myspace. Why? What are the pros and cons of it?

    i signed up for both last week.....why? ive got a class reunion coming up in a year or so and most the ppl i went to high school with are no longer here so i figured what the heck........dont get the ppl that hover over them when the only ppl they are talking with and sharing stuff with are ppl they normally see on a day to day basis anyway.....

    Yeah I do not get these things either. There is a reason I am not in touch with 90% of my high school, I did not like them in the first place so why would I want to "re-kindle" relationships that were never there to begin with??

    in my case i have talked with most that were friends within the last year at various times when they happened to be here visiting their parents but there are a few who were ppl i hung out with and had fun with but for whatever reason werent close friends that i wouldnt mind talking to...........add that to the fact i have 17 blood uncles and aunts not counting their spouses and likely over 100 first and second cousins whom i rarely get to see.....well i threw a basic profile up on each and ill check them bout once a week but that will prolly be the extent of it.....this forum and the hunting forum i frequent eat up most my internet time and various other forums that i read depending on my whims that day be it meat smoking forums, beer brewing forums, dart frog forums other critter forums....well hell i aint going to sit and worry bout MySpace and Facebook on a daily basis....

    My 20th highschool renuion was 2 years ago..*yawn*
    I never even considered going..
    basically my life began when I started college..
    nothing of note happened before then..

    I stay in touch with many of my college friends..
    we get together at New Paltz (where we went to school) every 5 years or so..
    I am probably still in touch with about 10 friends from college..
    I am still in touch with zero friends from highschool..

    Looking back now, the only thing highschool is good for is getting good grades so you can go to college..apart from that, its meaningless..

    and I dont understand Facebook or Myspace either..and I really dont care.
    I think if you are over 30, you can safely ignore them!

    I had an account on myspace for a short time and then closed it. I just got tired of the creeps there. It's mostly a scum hangout. I'm under 30 btw. LOL

    I do know some people there; family members, people who I used to know locally, etc. None of whom I want to keep in contact with. I mean, they moved and don't keep in contact, so why should I want to? I'm not particularly in the market for new friends. I like the ones I have. So I just don't mess with those sites.

    Multiply is an exception. I do have an account there. I originally got it for online music and then had to become more active there to help a friend move an MSN group. For the most part, it seems a bit less sleazy than myspace, but I still don't seek out people there.

    I did a myspace because my cousin was in Iraq so that's how I could talk to him. Other then that I don't see a point.

    I signed up once for myspace, then some girl I never knew sent me a message to asking to talk (she was one of my brothers friends but, I don't want to talk to people like them so never went there again. I do have a face book because my family uses it to share pictures and stuff. I can say I have a fairly large family but, second cousins aren't really well know to me.
