Anyone out there on Facebook...  
...and can tell me what the heck it is? Sort of like MySpace? A friend of mine sent me a request to be friended and when I click on the link it tries to register me. I've heard (vaguely) of Facebook before, but thought it was only for college students and never really paid too much attention. Any words of wisdom on it would be greatly appreciated. :)

Well, tomorrow is the big night... The big CHESS Benefit Concert! Lots of my friends in LA will be going and if it hadn't been for the beautiful wedding that I attended last night for a dear friend, I would've tried my hardest to be there too. If anyone here is planning on going, I'd love a report of Kevin's performance. Kevin as Anatoly is much too hard for me to pass up without wanting major details! :D In any case, I'll be thinking of Brian and the others tomorrow night and sending my biggest break-a-leg wishes!!

I'm off to hunt for some LifeWater - I've been unusually thirsty all weekend!! Hope you all have a lovely week!! :D HUGS!

Facebook originally WAS only for college students because you had to have a .edu address to sign up. Now it's for everybody. I only signed up about a month ago, but I really like the layout, the privacy settings are much more customizable than MySpace, and the whole thing has a nice feel to it. Would love to see you there. ;-)

Thanks for your comment! I decided to sign up last night and I'm still trying to figure out the customizing options, search feature, etc. :)

It's like MySpace but much, much cleaner. Don't have to deal with badly coded profiles or annoying Flash movies...usually.

I joined up a little while ago, and while I don't really like social-networking sites, I suppose it's okay. :)

I think it seems a little more "secure" than MySpace. I signed up last night and am still trying to figure out the customizing options.

I'm on both. I got a Facebook to keep an eye on my daughter's profile there. Google "Facebook vs. MySpace" and I bet you come up with some interesting articles.

I'm on both too and have mostly the same friends on both sites, although I mostly have Facebook so I can use their Scrabulous application to play Scrabble with my friends !

You can play Scrabble there? How cool!! :D

It's been one of my main sources of entertainment (besides two more seasons of Frasier, a get well gift from my Daddy !) while I recuperate !

Very cool!! I must check it out when I have more time!! :) Thanks for the link!

Good idea! I'll have to google it. :) I ended up signing up last night and have been fiddling with the customization options ever since. Neat that you can click and drag different boxes to change the look, though! :)

Facebook was for college students, but it's for everyone now. Myspace keeps adding Facebook features and Facebook keeps adding myspace features. The differences aren't that big, but I enjoy both and have both :)

I ended up signing up last night, but I'm still not used to the customizing features of the site yet... I do like that it seems a bit more private than MySpace.

It is very big with people in school, but others use it too. I have one friend there who is my age (nearly 50!!!), and he has connected with people he has met all over the country with it. But he's the exception. Of course, most of the people I know who are my age aren't on any of these communities, so go figure. I stay off facebook because my daughters use that as their primary connecting place, I think, and probably prefer that I keep out!

Haha!! :) I'm not sure I can really get into it - though it seems neat, I'm really not used to the customization features yet. Found Russell there (but didn't friend him) - and his fangroup! :D
