You've taught me a new word tonight! I've never heard of gallimaufry before, what a helpful addition to my vocab.

I don't like facebook, period. I think my contacts' updates are pretty harmless and not as extremely different from each other as to give me whiplash, but still... I don't feel like posting ANYTHING there.

UGH about that video!

I both love and hate Facebook. I love how I've reconnected with people I would never of heard from again, probably ever. I can't stand stupid status updates, and when people update constantly, and chronic complainers.

I know what you mean -- one reason why I'm keeping my friend list really small. The thought of having every single member of my high school class possibly reading anything I have to say makes my head feel funny.

At the same time I'm totally comfortable with having a personal, non-anonymous blog that's visible to the entire internet. Go figure.

Facebook, meh. I can see why people love it, but honestly I just don't have the time. I love my blogs and the people I have been coming to know through this medium, and I love Ravelry. Apart from that, I don't need the time-suck. I have only so much time on this earth and I'm not sure that it's a big benefit for me.

But, like I said, I can see the appeal on some level. It's like seeing how someone decorated the inside of their locker.

I like FB. I like the people I've managed to reconnect with (mostly from college). I am very fond of the the button that allows me to hide people's status updates, and I'm a fan of the one that allows me reject friend requests from random people who I don't feel up to connecting with. I generally like the interesting things people link to. I like that I can update as often as I like, and "participate" as little or as much as I want to. It helps me keep in touch with friends and family.

But I do agree that some people *really* let it *all* hang out on there, and I think that's weird!

Can I just say that my teenagers and facebook is a nightmare! I hate it and wish it was never invented!
