FOO or Facebook?

My wife became a member of Facebook a few weeks ago. She keeps telling me about all the people who have been adding her as a friend. She things I should become a member. But I don't want to, I already have enough things that distract me from my paying positions. Plus, I don't want to become addicted like Path, Lord knows i already have enough addictions, such as Foo. I think Foo is a far better addiction than facebook.

So I ask, what is your preferable addiction, Foo, facebook, or something else?

Ya, Facebook for real people.

FOO for... what CyL said.

Join Facebook just to see all the old high school boys she is friends with; might make for some interesting conversation.

LOL... I guess it must by my naivety, but I thought people on Foo were real? Even more real than the inflated self descriptions you may read on networking communities.

  2. how many would you like to have a conversation with?
  3. how many might be interesting to have a conversation with?

I must use Facebook differently than you do. It's not a 'networking' site for me. It's a place where I can see what's up with friends and family in a passive way and they can do the same with whatever I post out there. It's more about keepiing in touch and aware than about 'networking' for me. If I don't know you, you aren't in my Facebook. It's pretty level and non-egotistical because we all know each other. That's just my way of using it.


Foo is just random babble from 99% of people I've never met in person and a place to dump ideas and idiocy.

Different applications in my mind.

Mmmmmm Popeye's fried chicken. Not as good as Chicken Basket (which I miss - none here in CA) though.

Foo for sure.
