So it's funny. I've been in IT for ten years and never really did any of these. I signed up for both of them this week. Anyone else have them? Want to share them out? You can search mine by email of s_e_hendricks at comcast dot net. FMrs are all welcome.

I was reluctant, then I said what the heck and did a FaceBook.

Here I find out I'm one of the last ones to sign up smile

I don't actually plan on hanging out there, but it's a nice tool to find some old classmates, friends etc

I agree. I did it yesterday and found 30 classmates I haven't talked to in years. Pretty cool system.

I have a myspace page, I don't really care too much for it but it is nice to see that old friends are still doing well thru it.

I had a facebook page but people send out to many random app invites and other garbage so I closed that page.

That's an easy fix on Facebook. There are filters to be set and such.

I am on both. They are nice for sharing pictures and keeping up with friends and family. I have also found some friends from the past that I had lost touch with.

I joined facebook when I was recruiting for a student group while in college. Prior to that I vowed to never join, but I gave that up for the sake of recruiting. Now it's good to keep up with old classmates and friends.

Can't speak for myspace though. I'm not going there. One social networking site is enough.

I have facebook. A lot of my friends live 20+ miles away and it's a good way to keep in touch.

I'm on both. I use Facebook more. The only reason I go to Myspace is the mobsters app that I play.

I got into Facebook about a year ago. I work with a lot of 20 somethings and it seems to be the most popular way for that generation to keep in touch.

An interesting side note. Part of my job is to background new employees. Facebook and Myspace are a nice resource to see what your potential new employee might really be like.

That is so true. I have heard stories from friends who were denied positions and even fired from jobs for what was on their myspace accounts. In a professional world, it usually isn't so good to have one.

Wow,

Sounds like I am the only dinousaur in the herd. I have never been to myspace or facebook. I just started checking out some things on youtube! I guess it is hard to teach old dogs new tricks, sometimes. LOL

Facebook is pretty cool site and its free unlike classmates. I enjoy using facebook because I can chat with people I use to go to school with back in the day before I moved. I actually went to a 15yr class reunion for Coulumbia Heights last weekend and it was more of a 19yr reunion because I moved from Heights to Blaine back in 1989.

I just keep my accounts set to private just for the reason of job searching.

I do Facebook. It's cool that I can keep in touch with old classmates from 20 years ago.
