My children are young adults and are on facebook. The only thing I worry about is that it may suck up too much time, time that could be spent with real friends face to face doing real things. Thankfully facebook, like all things in their lives, are used in moderation. (I know, because I am on it too and they don't obsess on fb.)

Facebook uses people. Save the kids.

I don't use the facebook or the twiiter. I'll agree with Autie today, believe it or not. I would like to know more about Huff-Po, whatever it is. I'm running out of spray paint. A virtual robotrip would be interesting.

"Maybe I mis-interpreted that person. "

I'm easily mis-interpreted. Tends to happen when I get rambly.

Maybe I mis-interpreted that person. It just seems like you end up at Huff-Po or porn, which are about the same in my book.

My kids coerced me into using facebook so it would be easier to keep up with each other.

Better question, "Are your kids comfortable with your online persona?" . . . Not so much . . .

Too late, they've been on it for a few years. Grandpa is a Facebook friend and keeps a watch on them. Twitter, now that is a problem...

I would rather spend time teaching them how to use a fishing hook.

My kid had to show me how to use facebook. The question should be, "do you feel comfortable with your Dad using facebook"? She would probably say no he'll clilck on something and screw up the computer.

My cat has trouble typing, let alone pressing that "like" button. So he isn't so into it. But thanks for asking.

My kids have taken making me uncomfortable to unimaginable levels. Facebook? HA ! That's nothing! When they are together or with their mother there is no subject yhey will not discuss. After squirming in the chair for a few minutes I eventually get up and leave the room, followed by laughter and,"Whatsa matter Dad?".

Itsa conspiracy I tell ya . . .

Sure, I'd hook them up to be friends like the WBC. How could you go wrong with something as wholesome as a church?
