    I already have a MySpace, and I'm not sure I want to give any more websites that much personal information. God knows what they do with it/who they sell it to.

    I'm still a little unsure what the point of these kind of sites are, though. All you do is promote yourself but to who and for what!? When I had a personal MySpace it just ended up with people I alreay knew added that I could just ring if I wanted to speak to them. Not that I wanted to speak to them. And by the way, anybody new that you meet over one of these sites is most likely lying about themselves. I did a study into MySpace on a couple of people I know's profiles and, whether conciously or not, it turned out they were twisting the truth of themselves and gatekeeping to appear more "cool" or whatever. I guess you can't trust the internet; who'd have thought? Even people's photos of themselves show the falltering side of things ... I know mine do. Why do you think so many have blurry webcam pictures of themselves and not high-resolution photographs?

    I don't think I'll bother with FaceBook.

    I'm sure it will be making money from me somehow.

    Sorry I'm not a member either, I'm quite happy just to be a Myspace memeber.

    I think it would be good if the FF-UK North had a facebook account don't you? We need to promote ourselves through all good avenues, and Facebook is quite popular nowadays. I'll go about setting myself an account too.

    I'm on Facebook - IMO it's much easier to use than Myspace, and I've managed to get intouch with two old school friends I've not seen in 10 years which is cool !!

    feel free to add mw to your friends list (search for me under my real name Chris Pearson)


    my my Tim are you at a loose end this morning ;) you are everywhere !!!!

    :p

    Just on a mission (but not from God) to get several important threads re-noticed and some upcoming meets on people's to-do-list, whilst sorting out CE stuff at same time. Plus, this is really the first time I have been able to sit and post properly in ages, without any distractions or work to go to.

    I'll add u when I have sorted out my account on there, am gonna be busy with CE stuff for next few days again lol

    Grrrr, facebook is making me not not not happy. Went to add you as a friend Nige and a damn flash advert is hiding the security verification input box. Then when I think I have sneaked around not being able to see (by using tab) and typed in correct code, it asks me for mobile phone verification!!! Then I put that in and tells me my phone ain't supported!!! WTH?!

    I'm on there as "Tim Bolton", Chris can't pinpoint you since there are supposedly 200+ hits on your name and I tried via location and it says none in England.

    Edit: Done it via the "view friends" option which doesn't have that damn advert blocking the view! Added a few others too :D

    I had another look at facebook and I dont understand it. Firstly it says my name isn't "legitimate" (how did it know!?) and then it says it wants my e-mail account password so it can invite all of my 'friends'. :( That don't sound cricket to me. And I can't upload any music to it. :( Oh well, I don't think there's anyone on there I want to really talk to anyway. That's what MSN and MySpace is for. :)

    *cough* thing is, as stated somewhere above, i cannot access myspace.

    sometimes i think this is an age thing of some sorts. i find facebook very easily understood. for once of course they cannot use my email and invite people because they don't know what to do with german systems mwahahahaha!
