    The whole Facebook/My Space thing scares me to no end. I'm really not that ancient, it just seems a liittle spooky. Like an invasion of privacy or something.

    Convince me?

    What are the pros and cons(as you understand them)?All responses welcomme....[​IMG]

    I don't do myspace.

    We do happen to do FB.

    I have a friend who is a cop who says I should just delete my account.

    Now I just use it like e-mail to keep up with old friends.

    I don't hace a Myspace acct, ( figure I'm too old for that silliness. I have a Facebook acct, but it's a bit overwhelming. I get so much nonsense posted on my 'wall' it isn't funny. And, I haven't really got a clue what I'm supposed to do with it.
    Sheesh, I am an old fuddy-duddy.

    I don't do Facebook or My Space. My cousin is on Facebook, and she is forever trying to convince me to get on there. I almost did one day. I had a silly plan of changing her name just a tad, and pretending to be her evil twin. Just for giggles. But then I didn't do it. [​IMG]

    I read an article about FB the other day. A policeman stated that the personal information that you give to be on FB has all the information an ID thief needs to steal your ID! My Bff convinced me to join FB, still not convinced I want to do it. Of course I am playing Farmville, probably more ways to steal my ID! I did have two people from high school try to contact me. Haven't talked to them in 30 years, don't plan on starting now. My son moved to Calif for a while, he convinced me to join Myspace, don't use it..... he moved back & has started going to college part-time in Indpls. (very long story)

    No to either FB or MS - I have BYC.

    Especially after I started getting emails on my personal yahoo account about "changes to your facebook settings". Creeped me out! I emailed them about this as fraud, asked for immediate response...a month later got a form email that "the matter has been resolved".
