What's Facebook?

Couple of people near me in the office have been talking about Facebook, they asked for my email so they could add me.

When I asked what it was they laughed at me and told me to get with it.

They're typical 'pink' girls which may explain the reaction, but I'm wondering now what it is all about...

A shallow Myspace for Toffs

It's an alternative social networking site to MySpace which became more like MySpace and thus recorded massive usage figures in the process.

Another place for geeks to pretend they have friends.

With them being "typical 'pink' girls" I expect they said "Oh my God, Issit?" about 300 times as well.

"its basically a simple version of myspace."

It's about 20 times more complex than Myspace. I'm not really a fan of any of these Social Network things, but Myspace is to Facebook, as a Reliant Robin is to a Gallardo. It's much more like LinkedIn (which is a business contacts version), less of the lame backgrounds that make your page impossible to read and crappy songs.

I think its pretty good to be honest.

I only found out about it last week and have managed to get intouch with loads of friends whose contact details I lost when my PC went pfft a few years back.

It has its uses!

Facebook is better than myspace easy. None of these fake profiles and viruses that hang around myspace. Tag hundreds of photos and join thousands of groups [like MARK VIDUKA - GEORDIE JUDAS]

It's a decent social network tool. It's becoming the new MySpace. It started with just mainly the Uni crew but other, lesser people in society have found out about it :(

re: What's Facebook?

It's only becoming the new MySpace because people are realising what a sh*thole MySpace is.

If I could I would be OK for supplies for a while.

It's more my kidneys that knack at the moment.

re: What's Facebook?

it also has a FMTTM group on there.

I love how it's deemed for geeks by some people when everyone on here is writing on a message board which is exactly what facebook does but obviously with friends...
