yah, i just got an account a few days ago after being told by twerpy that it is somehow better than myspace... it has its plus' but i prefer being able to customise my page biggrin oh well.





yeah i think it's a bit too straight edge, i like the idea of having a page how i like it and being able to change it when i like

Posted:umm If your page is the same as everyone elses', then your personality needs an individuality check.

If anything, facebook is turning into more of myspace with applications.

It was started as a way for college kids and older crowds to network in a (semi)-professional environment without millions of pictures to load or flashy buttons and html editing.

Posted:I agree, I'm really not a fan of all these applications, I wish there was at least a limit as to how many you can have on, on some people's pages you end up scrolling down for ages until you actually manage to find their wall which is really annoying.

Posted:I like it. All the crap HTML coding people do on their Myspace thinking their Web Designers ... when in actuality you can't read the text because of the background ... eugh! Nasty-nasty-nasty!!!

Facebook is at least easy to read and you can reorganise it quickly and easily. Ask the people with naff profiles to minimise those Apps that really don't need viewing (I don't want to know I'm a Catholic Schoolgirl Vampire and I'm pretty sure no-one else does either!!!)

I like 'em myself, think they're novel. Much better than randoms putting up more adverts in your comment section on Myspace which is *&!$ing irritating!!!!

And glitter pictures ? Humpdays ? Noooo ! It's wrong I tell thee, wrongness of the greatest magnitude ! Stop it !

Posted:Yeah, whenever I try searching for my old friends I get about a million other people show up with the same name... then I have to trawl through them all, trying to squint at the photos and pick out the one which looks most like I'd imagine my friend would look like now, which is hard when you haven't seen them for years... when I looked up one old friend, Kate Alexander (whom I haven't seen for nearly 10 years), practically every picture looked like it could maybe have been her! (They all looked quite alike, it was a bit creepy!).

Aye, it's me, ya found me ... time to run away again and hide! Mwah!

It is a sod to find people though ... not tried looking for myself (Although Google hunting for yourself can be fun.)
