I still haven't figured out why they changed from 'fans' to 'likers'. Facebook always seems to find the need to change things that way. I suppose most of it is in response to suscriber feedback, but it gets kind of tiresome.
My wife enjoys Facebook more than I, as she keeps in touch with a lot of her classmates that way. I talk to a few of mine, as well as friends from other walks of life (including B.com), but not so much as she. I have found a few of my old shipmates there, which is nice.
I have twitter, but I rarely use it. I think Mrs. Presenter is the only regular correspondant I have there, and she's not on that often.

Shapley wrote:Yep, there's a lot of that. Some people publish all the details of their lives. I may put too much out there, but I try to keep it manageable, posting no more than can be usually be found elsewhere.
The entire internet is that way, of course. I see that Huffington Post identifies how much I've given to which political campaigns and parties, and even provides a map to my house (or, rather, where they think my house is located, I'll not be the one to set them straight on that). Too much information.
I have a friend on facebook that constantly posts about hating her job and dreading going to work, etc. I hope her employer doesn't use facebook...

Marye wrote:Like you Shap, I keep facebook as a personal account. I do not mention where I work nor do I say anything about work. On my LinkedIN account, I do not post but link up with people I have worked with. Twitter, like I said, I use for professional chat though I do not often post there. So.. I am an active lurker.
