    Just wondering if anyone here has an account on this friend-networking site? If you haven't heard of it from a friend yet, you may have seen it on the news recently. I recall it being mentioned on TV during an internet safety story, the Virginia tech incident, some teens getting in trouble for bad-mouthing their teacher on there, and on sports opinion columns. So I reckon it is fairly popular.

    We could get a Sorcerer's Place group started on there haha :shake:

    Is that the same as Faceparty? My brother is always sending me invites to those things, I think I've joined them all!

    I got an invitation, but I generally don't bother joining things like that because I never keep track of it anyway.

    [​IMG] I'm on facebook :wave:

    Got a few friends from school listed and have also founded a group called Church of Tea for the hell of it. Boredom does weird things :p

    I joined because it's my last year in school and I'd love to hear from people I might not necessarily be close friends with to see how they do.

    Never heard of it and I don't really see the point, I'm in touch with every friend so what's the point?

    Employers check those sites so I stay as far away from them as possible.

    I joined just to look at some picture my mate had loaded up onto his. Since then I've had loads of people add me, some of them are really random! Never even heard of half of them. I end up having to go through rejecting loads of friend requests. I have nothing on mine, I don't use it... if you search for Phil Aldred though you'll probably see my Facebook (for what it's worth).

    a norwegian friend of mine introduced me to it, i hardly use it, but i does have a picture of it. so if any of you want to see a 2year old picture of me, when i was bald and in norway, then search for Jonas Ryborg there.

    I decided I didn't like facebook enough to keep one, primarily because everyone 'round here prefers myspace... which I do like better anyway.

    I'm far too lazy to ever bother going onto those sorts of sites.

    I'm on facebook... we should start a sorcerer's group :)

    And since I'm not looking for a job, I don't care what I put up there.

    It's interesting to see who is doing what (after having graduated for some years now), but other than that, I don't do much else on that site. So I just use it to see what other people are up to, and I hardly update much about myself on there. For closer friends, I'd rather talk elsewhere, and for not-so-close friends, conversations die after exchanging a few messages. But yeah, I was influenced by several friends to join too, which is usually how these trends start.

    I'm careful enough to avoid putting bad things (ie: embarrassing drunken pics :D ) on there, in case important people do check those sites.
