I rarely see bots there, and when I do, they are only browsing the index.


Ok define for me what a bot is please. I think I know but I am not sure.

Typically, what we see browsing our message boards are search robots (also called crawlers or spiders) used by Google, Yahoo, and others to collect documents from the web to build a searchable index for the their search engines. You can see them yourself from time to time by checking just under the Registered Users online where it says "Bots" at the bottom of the Home page.

I really find e-mail easy enough to use. If somebody doesn't want to take the time to correspond with me by e-mail, then I'll take that hint and assume they aren't interested enough for me to take the time, either!

Rike,

I recenlty got in contact with a lady I went to college with thru classmates.com - excanged a couple of e-mails with her. But, don't really hear any more from her, she told me she pretty much just used facebook to keep in touch with people and asked me to joing faceboodk. I don't know. maybe some day I'll break down and do the facebook thing. Maybe I would like it if I ever did, but I just don't feel comfortable with it.

It is not that bad...you can hide all your information except for those you invite to see it. There are days it is busier than others. Repa is getting pretty good at it. He posts just about everyday.

Just saying.

I get pretty frustrated at times. And, that link that Sam posted is worth considering - here it is again:

I agree with you there Rike... and I understand your frustration there too Fay... many of my friends in Vzla have Facebook and to be able to see their photos they always say "its on Facebook"... when they want to see my pics its easy available for them to see with no need no join a site just to see photos Evil or Very Mad so I opt to miss out on that

Plus, I do not care to join that site cause I just know that these friends of mine do not take all the precautions or have the understanding of keeping stuff safe... I am pretty happy in how spam free my email account is and would like to keep it that way... lol

You got that right, Sam! Since joining facebook, I get 20 -30 spams a day. Before joining facebook, I rarely got any. I am considering deleting my account as I get pretty frustrated with facebook at times.

Good luck deleting it, Repa. I read somewhere that even if you delete your account, it is still there.
Sam, I agree with you. If I have to go to facebook to look at photos, I guess I just won't see them.

I created a spam account for facebook. My regular accounts are on aol. my spam accounts are on gmail or hotmail. I don't go there except to delete stuff when it gets full. But at least my aol accounts are nice and clean so far...lol

My family uses it, my daughter is in kansas and I chat anytime with her on facebook. I like it and not just because of the games...lol.

Another interesting article about Facebook and its privacy policies

http://redtape.msnbc.com/2010/08/facebook-places-we-are-each-others-big-brothers.html?GT1=43001

The User's comments are pretty interesting and all give interesting opinions of the pros and cons...

Its true... as one user says:
Quote :
if you lack the ability to properly use privacy settings .. GET OFF THE INTERNET!

or this other one:
Quote :
If people are going to use technology (or anything else) then it's their responsibility to understand how it works. Anyone who starts using FB without understanding the privacy issues deserves whatever they get.

then as others put it:
Quote :
facebook started by allowing users to share information, which they did because they wanted to showcase their social life, from their core group of freinds, to a wider audience. Increasingly so, facebook has used this initial narcissistic streak and put users in a prison...with things like places...the people that shared the most, are now having to share their places with everyone....instead of coreographing things to their favour...the information is now totally out of their control....
Quote :
this is how facebook has gotten their business to thrive. They have done this by playing with our minds so, it is difficult for us to even delete ourselves. Indirectly, social networking sites have made us dependent on it. But in the end, it is our own fault as well for succumbing to it and joining in the first place. Once you have joined, these sites have owned rights to us. It is pretty scary to think about. Our profiles are not about us. It is their profile on us.

Fine... honestly for one, I don't need to have my 15mins of fame on any screen so I was never interested in social sites such as Facebook and for two... I may know how to work my settings, but would the people in my 'friends list' know?

The game that we played as kids called the Grapevine comes to mind when I think of Facebook... remember whats the true idea behind that game?

LOL... as everything its a personal choice

I think its a great idea of creating different email accounts for the different purposes one does on the web, like what Sandra suggested... I sure we all do that... just dont link those addresses together Rolling Eyes
