As far as I'm concerned, it detracts from real life.  How many people have sooooo many issues from ir?  It's a crazy way to communicate, and a way that often sees a person's self esteem die.  There is no way other than to meet a person in real life.  To have the 5 senses come into play. Only then you can know if you wish to take it forward.

This is not just aimed at you just you said the words I find funny Shrug

We are all having this conversation where you're view is that it is a crazy way to communicate...but aren't we doing the same on here? Yeah there is the anonymity of user names and we can share as much or as little of 'real life' as we wish, but these are still 'relationships' founded on online conversation and no more. So to me this is crazier that Facebook as I know and have met almost all the people I am friends with on fb, the only exceptions being the very few people from here who I have added, and Julia, V and I all plan on meeting over the the summer, so we will meet face to face (yay)

I'm the opposite of you, Hazel, my friends I've known for the longest time, and they wouldn't entertain FB.  It's not a crazy way to chat, but as for making good friends..... It's not my way.  I guess we are all different.

Ah right I see the post from Julia that explains the 'building relationships' I have never 'made friends' through facebook, only built on friendships and relationships begun elsewhere.

Huh? Making friends is not the purpose of Facebook... it's to keep in contact with people you know.

Like what?? Where they work? What they studied at university?  You should have a rough idea if they're your friend as it is.  You don't even have to provide those details, it's your choice.

But it turns into more.  I'd far rather keep my own counsel and communicate with my loved ones on Skype etc.  I honestly think FB is the devil's work.  It goes from a tenatative toe in the water, to an obsession.  Does nobody any good.  Just keeps you wondering what everyone else is saying about you, because you reveal so much...

Stop yelling at me ... I know you can restrict access.  But, if you're trying to find out some information about someone it would mean that someone is not your friend, otherwise you'd just ask, no Smile

yes

I think we've been talking at cross-purposes with Elly Smile Facebook is for that 'bumping into you catch-up', so that because you are no longer seeing someone daily at school, work, uni etc you can have that quick catch up that keeps you in touch with them so that when you do see them next you're not so out of date with what they're doing that you have nothing to talk about Smile

Yes in terms of people that you already know, and you can only find out information that they freely offer to you Shrug

But you don't have to reveal, it's your choice Shrug And if you're worried about what you're friends are saying behind your back, they you've got the wrong sort of friends anyway, whether you are communicating on facebook or in person Shrug

Stop yelling at me ... I know you can restrict access.  But, if you're trying to find out some information about someone it would mean that someone is not your friend, otherwise you'd just ask, no Smile

But you do ask...it's called posting on a page. They say they've had a bad day or good day and then you ask why Smile If it turns into more than another comment apiece then generally I then dig out my phone and go into full fledged chat.
At the moment, various of my friends are about to graduate and have been finding out about job applications etc, facebook is an easy way for them to tell the people they know whether they got a job or not.

Shrug That's well known these days. Unless you actually insult a previous or current employer, post while you were meant to be working, reveal company secrets or reveal any legally dubious activities on your part then what you do outside work hours is no concern of an employer.
Also if I had an employer who I hadn't added on Facebook who managed to gain access to my page to then check that I was behaving above board-well I would be exchanging words about their own actions in gaining access to my page without my knowledge Smile

Excuse me?  Yelling is usually denoted by block capitals but maybe you should undertake a course in online etiquette considering you have been banned from this website for your inadequate behavior before.

I completely agree. yay  You can keep your friends list up to date and remove those who cause you any sort of discomfort or who irritate you. Most people will protect information that they think is unnecessary for certain individuals to know.
