I have a Facebook page, and I use it everyday with no problems.  I have 44 friends.  REAL friends.  Quality >>>> Quantity.   I have ZERO problems.  Thanks to Facebook, I am now in constant touch with all my cousins and friends, who are spread out from North Carolina to Alabama to Illinois to Los Angeles.  :haz:

I have cousins all over the place, too. L.A. area, Oregon, Florida, the Carolina's, Tennessee, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Vermont, Michigan, Texas, Missouri, Nevada, Utah...I keep in touch with all of them via regular old email. There's also this bizarre thing called a telephone that does some wonderful stuff. :P

It's totally cool if you have a good experience with Facebook. I've just never wanted to be a part of it.

I'm one of the six billion or so people who does not have a Facebook account. There are more of us born every day... :)

I remember life before Facebook (and the Internet).  It was just fine.  :D  If  Facebook disappeared today, I would get over it fairly quickly.  

We can live without it.  We all have to keep reminding ourselves that we CAN live without social media and the Internet.  Telephones, cards and letters still work just fine.  Quite frankly, part of me wants to return to that era..... :o

Same here. I don't really understand some peoples negativity in regards to social networking. It's like they're being drawn into some black hole or something. It's just a fun place to keep in contact with your friends and meet new people. I've met a lot of people who are huge Rush fans. It's fun. :)

I love FB.  I check it several times a day and stay in touch with my family.  I also have far-flung friends and cousins around the world that I stay in touch with.  I only have a few FB friends I've never met.  They are all Rush fans.  I think a lot of the negativity stems from people who have a lot of FB friends they don't know and/or subscribe to too many ridiculous pages.  If you manage it well, FB is a great tool.  I do like TRF too, although i've been away for awhile.  It's great to be in touch again now that we are all a-buzz about the 2015 tour.  Just got tickets for Vancouver - it seems a long ways away, and I'm not too excited yet.  I'm very short, and can't usually see a lot, no matter where I sit.  Oh well, it's RUSH!  I have to go!

I'm on Facebook which I use a bit less than TRF. I have about 70 friends but only people who I know and have talked to in real life. Well actually I don't talk all that much, but people who I know anyway.

I use FB to talk to friends since most of my friends live miles away, and I find Facebook's chat nicer than email.

I am a Facebook junkie, I hate to admit. I really do love that you can get a glimpse into people's lives in real time even when you are miles apart. And to be honest, I have not only made new friendships but being able to keep in touch with others in such a subtle way has actually strengthened old friendships for me as well.
