Imagine the old country store where the old men in the community came to sit, drink coffee, and tell stories. This is my place for that on the 'net.
None, it's a time waster. I used to have an account, but deleted it for a number of reasons. Not least of which was the politics of the owners. I'm pretty sure that I put up a post on it.
I can see it to a small degree. For me, the attraction is about - reconnection.Finding and getting in touch or staying in touch with what is going on with someone.I have a buddy who is in Afghanistan and his wife keeps us informed through facebook of his status as much as possible.Other then that....some really bad games is the only other then I know.
There is a LOT of c**p that I ignore. (Tests, quizzes, Farmville, causes, etc.) The hide function is my best friend. But, I feel more connected with what is going on with my extended family than I have in the past.
My biggest thing is reconnection. There is this friend, her and I went through 1st grade all the way to high school and even went to the same college. She married her high school sweetheart (Active duty US Army Captain) and moved off. Now on Facebook I can talk to her and catch up even though she is in Colorado and I am in still in NC.
THANK YOU! I so totally agree. The only thing amusing about it is I did find out that my father is on it. I didn't think he could turn ON a computer. *Snerks*
