No, a pointless use of the interweb.

Used to use it all the time but over the last six months bearly login from one week to the next, the wife's the same and most of the people from work too!

But initially it was very good way to pass the time!

Anything like this goes through a hype cycle that means some people will inherently not join just because everybody else does, I think facebook has gone through the hype cycle and come out the other end relatively unscathed.

I know quite a few people who have joined and become active over the last year or so who previously declared their undying hatred of it.

There comes a point in time when excluding yourself from something like this is a case of cutting your nose off to spite your face, especially if you are a member of a social group who use it as a primary means of communication.

If it fits your lifestyle join, if not don't bother.

I joined initially because my old best mate from school was looking for me, but now most of time me and mates arrange nights out, including a stag do abroad via facebook. I don't get people that collect hundreds of "friends" though or spend all day playing farmville and all that crap.

One person even put a ' at the start of her name so she went to the top of everyones friend list

Am slowly going off it, still a good way of keeping up with distant friends & family, but is becoming too commercial & 'difficult' to use IMO

Does it add a link if you post "iTunes"?

It's become a playground for the socially inept and the plain stupid IMO.

Having said that it is useful for finding old friends. I use it seldom these days.

LinkedIn is another site trying hard to occupy a piece of the online social playing field but has far too much bias towards employment history and social stature.

What we need is a forum for like minded individuals and based on a shared interest - say Alfa Romeo's perhaps!

There are some very good reasons not to

https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/north...aily-mail.html

and some small pluses if you do.

If you don't go mad it is fine, but avoid posting every aspect of your life on there, get your security settings tight and avoid as much of the "like us on farcebook" commercial crud as possible.

...and send me a friend request when you do
