    I am not only not on Facebook....I don't have any idea how it works.:D

    But lately more and more friends who I respect greatly have been telling me that I am missing out.

    Maybe this is the reason.....

    Well I am now and that was pretty amazing...about three or four dozen Persians both here and in Iran have sent me junk.

    People I don't even know.....all because I work for an American Iranian who travels back to Iran frequently....pretty cool.:)

    No. Nor Twitter or whatever.

    I'd probably get in trouble with the government or my wife or my job.

    Nothing you send is private and it never goes away and you can't take it back I hear.

    I am all over facebook. It lets me keep in touch with childhood friends and my fmily 3000 miles away.

    We use skype a lot too to talk it gives you a face to face and even at 36 years old I miss seeing my mom.

    In today's era, with the gov. back door into even "private" sections of fb - was on the the gov. has (or is very close to having) good facial recognition software that they say will go into the social media sites and add people to their data base by photos they find on facebook...I cancelled my account with fb some time ago...research does show it takes a couple weeks, but your pics, etc. do get deleted if you delete your account. How long it'll stay like that, who knows...don't have much to hide, but I don't really like some entity keeping tabs on me...that and fb admits it tracks the sites you visit (the urls, etc. are sent back to fb) to target you for advertising and other things...I installed a privacy package that stops any and all such tracking when I dropped association with any social sites except this one...even here I see two ad networks and 1 company attempting to track my movements. Very annoying to me.

    I have a facebook account I use to keep in touch with family back east. Its how my cousin got a hold of me a few weeks back to let me know my uncle past away. And also some friends from high school

    I also use it to tick off what few liberal friends I have. I post more political stuff I get from here, than I do personal stuff.

    I spend maybe a total of 2 minutes on it a day

    I'm on Facebook because I have to be for work; we use a page to keep in contact with customers.

    I post maybe four times a month to my personal account.
