I will join the discussion as soon as I have time to read it. My friend only told me about this, I haven't read it yet.

Now read and discuss.

Meh too much to read...

So I'll just go on with what I know!

FACEBOOK IS CRAP!!!! I have one... but I've been on it like 6 times in a year? For about 10 minutes each? It's nothing but a compilation of well a lot of stuff... but made worse! Like Jetman... wtf? Ripoff off the helicopter game but WORSE! And if I wanted to talk to friends online just go msn...  :o Or if you want to make new friends go outside and talk to people! Like seriously! How hard is it to turn off the computer and go outside and socialize? (Yes I know... me saying all this crap is surprising)

Myspace > Facebook :P

Actually it's the other way around. Facebook might be partially a "rip-off" from MySpace, but it's way better. MySpace generally sucks, I would never register even if hundreds of people would annoy me with that. But I did register at facebook after several people asked me if I had an account.

Besides that I have to puke when I see MySpace. =X

Regardless I think Facebook is garbage, obsolete, useless in my eyes  8)

alright....i'll resist lol

but really, facebook is not something you can compare to myspace. if you've tryed both they have a much different feel from each other and appeal to different people so it's not a matter of which is better but what one you prefer.....and the one all your friends have lol

I haven't read the file, but I've heard accounts of employers actually using Facebook, Myspace, and Friendster in their own personal background checks of people in order to actually judge if they should be allowed to work, or if they have one, if they can work at all (as some employers have denied jobs to people and fired others for having an account on such sites), an act which I think is morally wrong but I guess that's matter of opinion.

What the EF!? When was the last time you actually went outside? I should drag you out oneday to play football or rugby or something :P

And yeh im against the facebook crap... dont even got one think its stupid
Personally i think its for stalkers... you add people to your friends list to look at the pictures they post of themselves...

I use facebook mainly as yet another form of communication. Usually I ask my friends out or send them a message over facebook instead of wasting money by sending an SMS.

the pope speaking ex cathedra, out of the throne meanign what he says is unarguable...there are limits tho but im not explaining lol

back on topic:

facebook is a promising social network with a huge and grwoing number of followers...it is much more secure than myspace and more of a meeting place than a self expression medium

SMS = Short Message Service

You do have a cellphone, right? The text messages up to 160 characters that you can send are called SMS. (-_-')
