Where's That Bandwagon?

Okay. So I jumped on the bandwagon. For like, half a second.

I've been harassed enough about how much "cooler" Facebook is then MySpace. So I joined, just to see how cool it is, and then I quit. Honestly, I'm lost. I don't know one single thing to do to get myself going and I'm really not certain I care all that much anyway. But that still leaves the curiosity of what I might be missing.

Sooo... How many of you are Facebook users and what exactly am I missing?


  1. I did the same thing. I have a facebook account that I have no clue what to do with, and I'm kinda all "meh" about it anyway. Let me know if you find out anything about it that is worth me knowing too!

  2. Facebook rocks once you get the hang of it. It's for the mature crowd. ;)


  3. I have a facebook account, and I enjoy it for keeping track of all my friends and family, but it gets really annoying after a while. They have all these quizzes and applications that people with too much time on their hands try to get other people to do too, and doing any of them means adding them to your profile and passing them on to all your friends too. That part really annoys me.

  4. I like it ALOT better than myspace. IT's more "grown up" than myspace! And more people you know, seem to use it!


  5. I love Facebook. There are games to play (woowoo which I love love) and it's a fantastic way to keep up with your friends and what they're doing.

    For me personally, I spend WAY more time on FB than I do on my blog, and there are hundreds more photos up there than I would ever put on the blog too. It's just easier to upload them to FB.

    It's similar to Twitter in that you can post every.single.thought if you want to, you can upload photo/video (with almost no restrictions), there are all kinds of social groups you can join on just about any topic known to man. I just love it. So much better than Myspace for sure but it does take a little while to get used to and learn how to use.

    For some reason I find it way more convenient to post comments on my friends photos/posts on FB than going to their actual blogs. LOL. Anyway if you do manage to get yourself on there, look me up... or give me your email address and I'll look you up. :D

  6. Facebook is the way to go! It is def a more mature crowd but yes there are those that love quizes and applications that they will ask you to join 600 times. but you can always say no and be done with it or say yes and do it and then turn around and delete it from you wall or account. once you get the hang of it you will like it. remember you didn't get myspace at first.
    I like facebook better b/c more of my friends have it than myspace. that and im currently addicted to my FarmTown application...Lindsay knows you can ask her.

  7. I'm a Facebook fan too. I don't get on Myspace anymore, it just seems so boring to me. Facebook gives you more control over what people can see, you can set specific settings for every friend if you wanted to. I have a few people on there that I know but I'm not great friends with so I have them blocked from viewing certain things on my profile, and they have no idea they are blocked.

    And there's also Farm Town!! Need I say more?

  8. OH yeah the blocking feature is fantastic. For example, I have a bunch of games I play that require a bunch of people in order for me to level up but because I don't know them they're on a separate 'friend list' and they don't see ANY of my personal details or photos or videos or anything like that. The privacy is awesome.

    And speaking of Farm Town, I must go harvest my peas. 'scuse me.

  9. Apparently I have a FB account, but I set it up right after college and I couldn't get the hang of it, so I never get on or use it. There might be one picture, but no info, and I have no idea what Farm Town or other applications there are, and I don't feel like I am missing anything. I have to say I am a little offended by all the people saying it is for a "mature crowd". I am much so that I couldn't figure out how to use it; I guess I belong to the grandma crowd.

  10. lol at Candace's comment!

    i like facebook more than myspace, but i'm not exactly sure why ... mostly because more of my friends use it and they update more often there than on myspace. i, too, have discovered the addiction that is farmtown (it's a farming game, btw). let me know if you decide to give facebook another try!

  11. I am on facebook, but not under my usual address, I'll try to find you, or send me e-mail later. Warning... Facebook can be addicting for stay at home mommies.
