Same here Richard - bombarded by all sorts of crap, "friend" requests from people I had no idea who they were, and then the completely pointless redesign. Farcebook? Witter? My(lackofsocialskills)Space......No ta.

This is as on-line as I want my life to be.

I think that the intention is that the younger members who may already be Facebook users would be able to chat to each other there, rather than here.

Facebook can be very useful for keeping up with friends who don't live near by. Some of my friends and family live a long way away and although it's great to pick up the phone and speak to a human being, sometimes it is more convenient to use the computer.

There is however a lot of rubbish on Facebook and you have to be a bit careful with who you have as your friends.

Phill.

Good idea, but not for me. Will stick with the forum.

Cool Facebook ?

Not my cup of tea, it's way to open to abuse in my opinion. I tend to stay away from sites that are un-moderated, just not worth it.

Cheers, Gerry.
