Wait a minute! Its possible that a post of mine will be posted on Facebook?!?!?!?

 

 

If that's the case I might not stay either. I left Facebook for privacy concerns.

We had a huge thread about this a few months back and the admin promised us our stuff would not show up on Fbook without notice. Is that not the case? I'm not over there so I don't know if they are breaking their promise.

I'm with you on the Fbook.. I deliberately avoid it like the plague because there so little privacy and so much drama over minutia.

I certainly don't think anyone should join facebook if they don't want to. But, I will mention that I've been on there for...about 3.5 years, total, and using it pretty heavily for about 2.5, and I've seen very little drama. Facebook is a social site, and the level of drama is going to really depend on who you have on your friends list. I've got a couple friends who seem to get into a lot of drama themselves, but I simply stay completely out of it, and it barely registers on me.

 

Mind you, my friends are all either real life friends, or online friends (many of whom I've met in person, but many I haven't) from ICAN, MDC or the old Iron Maiden forum where I met dh. I have fewer than 200 friends, and am just not into "collecting" friends, the way some people are.

 

IME, Facebook, like anything else, is a tool that can be used in a lot of different ways, and people get what they put in, to a great extent. Of course, that doesn't address the privacy issues, in the slightest.

8- and does anybody know what's going on with TWWS anyway?  It's been down a while- or at least it feels like it.  Probably doesn't help when I check it every half hour.

Nope. Driving me nuts. What am I supposed to do at work now? winky.gif

Ha!  I came here hoping for info on trolls too!  I wasn't sure if people would be "allowed" to mention it.  So no one has any idea what's going on?  I'm bored and I've done all my homework!

Maybe it's a a marketing ploy from MDC's new web people to get all of you to start clicking and posting here.  winky.gif  Or, maybe a TWWS outage means less traffic here... hmmm.

I agree. I have never seen any drama on Facebook and I've been on for 3? years now. I also only have friends who are real life friends or family. I think if people are into drama in real life then they will be into drama on FB but it's not a given that FB always = drama.

LOL

 

Rereading it, I can really see what you mean. I was thinking of people I've seen who have friend counts in the thousands when I wrote that. But, yeah - slightly under 200 is really a lot of people!

just registered on TWWS. I like the layout, but whats up with the word "d@$khead" I came across it multiple times in the few minutes I was over there? Seems interesting though! Thanks for the suggestion.

TWWS has a rather profane board culture. Personally, I'm a prude about that stuff. But I enjoy the place anyway, because the people are honest and funny and snarky and caring when it counts.
