I am now on Facebook. Whatever that is. Continuing my brave march into the 21st century.

UPDATE: If you make a friend request for me, please do mention that you know me through this journal, otherwise how would I know?

    Did they sign you up against your will like Twitter did?

      I was looking for Heather Riordan to send her something, and had to sign up to contact her. Now I’m deluged with friend requests and all sorts of whatnot from people I’ve never heard of before. What kind of madness is this?

      And what movie do you feel like watching tonight?

    In my experience, Facebook is both less demanding and more “responsive” than Livejournal, depending on what you use it for.

    Just don’t let them draw you into those applications. Those are, at best, mixed bags. The upside is, when someone invites you to an application, you can block it forever.

    One of those friending requests you just received there is mine, BTW.

    • ITA re: applications.
      Privacy issues are huge with them.
      Plus, they can become time wasters (the D+D one, for instance, took up 20 min. at least a day with me until I went cold turkey).

    Couldn’t find you on Facebook. A link please? Or if you prefer, you can friend me or not if you don’t want.

    • Todd says:

      I don’t seem to have a problem finding me. I’m there under Todd Alcott. A clever ruse.

      • greyaenigma says:

        It did put you on page two of my search, after a bunch of non-Todd non-Alcotts. Facebook’s search criteria are sometimes very weird.

          I think if it’s a new account on Facebook, it takes a little while to climb the ladder, even if the name is a direct match compared to those that show up at the beginning of the list.

          • greyaenigma says:

            The first name on the list was a Todd Walcott, who was in my local area (and also had a visible profile), the others had names totally off, but might have been fans of Louisa May Alcott or something.

    As with Twitter, I can’t find you on Facebook either. I can only assume you’re using a punk fake name like that Johnny Bacardi guy does.

    I did find a “Thunderclap” Alcott- that’s not you, is it? It’s a cool name just the same…!

    Congrats, you sir have now “arrived”.

    I think the only reason most people join is to see how ugly their high school classmates have become and to play the free games that are actually… well… time consuming.

    Todd, all the cool kids are hiding out on LiveJournal.

    P.S. You’re already here.

  8. gregusa says:

    Forgot I had a Facebook account. Thanks for the reminder.

  9. Better to be on facebook than that other social networking site that is a complete waste of time in comparison.
    Though, I’m on both….:/

    • Todd says:

      I found myspace to be an annoying, confusing, time-wasting bore. The only “social networking” I ever achieved there was advertisements from realtors and solicitation from prostitutes.
