I was very hesitant to open a Facebook account. Guess I was paranoid or something or simply didn't see the point of it. Then I found out my brother was on there and was keeping in contact (or reconnected) with high school buddies and our cousins (one in the Air Force) so I joined. I'm not one of these that has like 600 friends though. Never saw the point of that. Do you really have 600 friends? Why? I have just under 60, most are close friends and family. I have cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. Youngest I have on there are high school age. Personally, I don't have anything that I'd be afraid to post for everyone to see. There are a few times when I've posted 'hell', 'damn', etc. or a slightly off-color joke, but it wasn't bad enough that I thought I'd offend someone. I treat mine almost like a photo/video album and documentary of specific events. I'm currently building an acre pond and I'm documenting the entire thing on there. I've found it's very cool to find out what your friends/family are up to and you can hook up with them when ordinarily you may not have known and, thus, wouldn't have hooked up. Also, I don't get all the games these people play on there. I constantly get weird messages, like hugs or whatever, and lost cows, and need help finding a crowbar or something. Not into all that. Anyway, I'm one of those who don't know how I lived without it last year.
