Everybody has a FaceBook account, by now, don't they? Do you have one?

I have had one for around 4 years now. I didnt know what FaceBook was for at first, but accepted friends invitation out of politeness.

I am much the same.
I was the webmaster for our re-enactment club for over a decade. a couple or three years ago, somebody at Rendezvous came up and asked me if OVPR had a Facebook page. I said I didn't know.
When I got home I went to check.
Well you can't really look at much on Facebook without joining. So I did....Now I got a boatload of friends and I rarely go there.

NO! I was contacted by a stalker. Not safe. Too much like Big Brother.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

I do have one. It consists of school friends, family and a few good friends I have met online. There have also been a few accidental adds that I need to fix. I seldom post anything about my life, and never divulge anything out of line... a few co-workers have been fired over things that has been said about our company! I do like to keep up with friends and family. I have a couple of annoying "friends" from high school that bother me by attempting to chat/ send multiple jokes when I log on but I'm too polite to tell them so I also have DC listed as a like on there but I never see any posts from here!

I have but I never go there.
The kids created it for me years ago but I don't want it.
I tried to delete it but, strangely, I don't think that is possible.
They keep sending me emails.

If someone knows how to shut it down totally I would love to hear.

Like some of the others here, I have a FB account that comes with an excuse for why I have it. (My excuse is mundane and boring but I will share it upon request). I use it to keep up with kids and family and play Word with Friends.
