Stacy-Deanne Stacy-Deanne (wwwgoodreadscomstacydeanne) | 14 comments I'm on Facebook but don't care for it too much. I am also on My Space, Shelfari and some other social networks. I find Facebook boring to be honest and don't know what the hype is about it. I can't get into it. It's like there seems to be no interaction there even if it is.

I try to at least check my Facebook everyday just to see if I have some friend requests to approve but other than that, I don't stick around. I am beginning to think the folks who invented Facebook are the ones who put out all the hype about it was better than My Space, LOL. My Space isn't perfect but at least when I am there I can feel a presence, LOL. Facebook, I don't know, just feels dead to me. They could liven up the site with more colors other than white and blue. Maybe that's one of the problems. If the site looks boring it's gonna BE boring. Also, do they even have a bulletins section? Anyway, feel free to send me an invite and I'd love to add you. You can add me at My Space too. I got two there.

Best Wishes!

Also I posted an excerpt of "Melody" on my page. I'd love for you guys to check it out and vote if you like mysteries and thrillers.

message 12: by Courtney (new)

Courtney (courtneyclift) | 61 comments Meg,

I'm on facebook and myspace, but goodreads has become the place to hang. That being said I seem to spend a lot of time on facebook "clicking" for my CAUSES. Feel free to add me on all...Courtney Clift.

Okay so I had a facebook account that I opened long ago but never got into it. I checked it out after this post and I still exist... go figure.
I still dont know all the ins and outs of it but here I am if anyone wants to add me and Ill try to figure out how to add those already here (but dont hold your breath) :)

message 18: by Tera, First Chick (new)

Tera | 2564 comments Mod
I need facebook 101 .
I dont know how to get my flair up on my homepage? or pandor or a few million other things. How do you add those?

message 19: by Tera, First Chick (new)

Tera | 2564 comments Mod
I created a chicks on lit piece of flair. I have no idea how to get it on my homepage but I did make it public if anyone who does know how and wants they can.

message 20: by Emily (new)

Emily (ejfalke) | 576 comments I LOVE FB!

Tera, did you add the Pieces of Flair app? It's on your "Boxes" tab on the "new" FB. I don't think you can move them over anymore.

message 21: by Tera, First Chick (new)

Tera | 2564 comments Mod
It's in my "boxes" but I was hoping there was a way it was displayed on my home page like the goodreads app is. Either I cant figure it out or it isnt. I also was hoping Pandora had that same feature because I love pandora but I cant seem to find that either.
Yay you added me!

message 22: by Emily (new)

Emily (ejfalke) | 576 comments Maybe if you go to the Applications button at the top and edit your preferences under Pandora...Hmmm...

message 23: by Lucianna (new)

Lucianna (lucianna77) | 19 comments Facebook is not as good as myspace. sorry guys.

message 24: by Tera, First Chick (new)

Tera | 2564 comments Mod
I looked into Myspace once long ago and it was full of too many teenagers for me. Facebook is borderline for me as is.

message 25: by Lucianna (new)

Lucianna (lucianna77) | 19 comments No not now..there are many 20 and 30 years on there now...I thought that too until my friend showed me otherwise.

message 26: by Angela (new)

Angela | 19 comments I am on Facebook and have been having problems adding people and my goodreads bookshelf to it.

Feel free to add me to your friends.

message 27: by Angela (new)

Angela | 19 comments I am on MySpace, too. I will have to send a friend invite to you. Don't worry about what your kids think. I was shocked when my mother who is a grandmother started her site. She beat me to it! And she blogs a lot better than I do too. Must be all that free time! LOL....

message 28: by Emily (new)

Emily (ejfalke) | 576 comments One of the assistant principals at the school I used to work at is doing her dissertation on the ways that teenagers communicate. I was surprised when she told me two years ago that email is "out" and the MySpace/Facebook stuff is the primary form of communication for the younger generation. But, now I can totally see it!

message 29: by Sydney (new)

Sydney (sydneyh) i, too am on facebook, after much resistance. To be honest, I was bored one Friday afternoon at work and decided to check it out. I've actually reconnected with quite a few high school buddies, which has been great because we were supposed to have a 15 year reunion this year but didn't. I'm still a little unsure of it, as I've gotten friend requests from people I barely knew or didn't like in h.s... just ignored those. After working in TV news as long as I did and doing all the stories on what teens and college kids are doing on myspace, I didn't want to mess with it. I like that Facebook can be basic. Meg and Tera, thanks for the friend requests! Honestly, i prefer goodreads to facebook for socializing!

message 30: by Tera, First Chick (new)

Tera | 2564 comments Mod
I prefer goodreads too. But I did connect with a couple of people I hadn't seen in a long time and that was fun.
Flair is one of those silly applications you can add. I finally figured out (on accident I think) how to add it to my profile page. If you look on the bottom left side of my page youll see a bunch of pins. I think the one showing big is a Seattle pin and you can scroll through the others I have. I made a Chicks on Lit one with our icon chicken to add too.

message 31: by Meg (new)

Meg (megvt) | 3069 comments Teri please add me as a friend on facebook.

I prefer goodreads for a lot of things; however, I play games etc on facebook and have fun there too. I am loving having goodreads friends on facebook as well. I have a new name for us, the people on chicks are chiklits!

message 32: by Lucianna (new)

Lucianna (lucianna77) | 19 comments facebook is good, I have one too but i prefer Myspace. FAcebook messes my computer up for some reason. it freezes it and runs slow

message 33: by Lucianna (new)

Lucianna (lucianna77) | 19 comments Goodreads beats Myspace and Facebook!

message 34: by Brandie (new)

Brandie (brandiemichelle) i have a myspace and facebook. add me..i love new friends!! i really prefer myspace - i'm on it all day every day. i check facebook about once a week...i think it's really boring. i'm pretty much in love with goodreads and myspace. lol.

message 35: by Meg (new)

Meg (megvt) | 3069 comments I just sent you a request from facebook

message 36: by Beth (new)

Beth | 163 comments Hi Meg,
I love to play games on Facebook...lately we've been into Word Twist, Sudoko and Pathwords, but there are so many more! Please feel free to add me as a friend!

message 37: by Meg (new)

Meg (megvt) | 3069 comments I couldn't get into facebook last night. Somehow they have changed the url to new.facebook and even then it was difficult. Will try again later my game playing friends!

message 38: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne | 55 comments Hi!! I'm on Facebook AND Myspace. Too many kids on myspace but so does facebook. Seems much better though. We just took my freshman college son to UT & that's the way I keep up with him. He hasn't added me as a friend but at least I can see his page.
Here is my link.


message 39: by Tera, First Chick (new)

Tera | 2564 comments Mod
Teri I had issues with it at first too and I went to their discussion boards and saw others struggling with it. I don't have a mac though so I'm not sure if that adds to the problem. The only way I could get it on my profile was a really odd way of going to the edit screen for applications and messing with it there. Check the discussion boards on the flair and they may have mac knowledge.

message 40: by Emily (new)

Emily (ejfalke) | 576 comments I've been having issues with Flair as well. And I don't like that your Flair board has to be relegated to the "boxes" tab. That weird left-hand box is annoying to me. Before the "new" FB I was on that app all the time.

message 41: by Laura (new)

Laura (apenandzen) | 1445 comments I recently joined Facebook to keep in touch with my neices & nephews, two of whom just went away to college. My daughter told me that when she joins this summer to meet her college roommate, she doesn't plan on friend-ing me. Sniff. Teens are hell, aren't they?

message 42: by Sandy (new)

Sandy (sandila) | 75 comments I added everyone that was listed. Here are my sites....

I hadn't heard of Flair. I'll have to check that one out. I don't have a Mac either although I really want one. Does anyone here use Twitter? I do but don't update it as much since I don't know that many people on there. It's fun to do too and addictive.


message 43: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (cyndil62) | 1774 comments I have both:


My nieces and other family talked me into setting up as I have some on each. I would love new friends on either, just put a note that you are a Goodreads friend!

message 44: by Kate (new)

Kate | 96 comments I'm on facebook.

I think it's as addictive as crack, so I'm taking a break for a while...just to see if I can...

message 45: by Lynlee4 (new)

Lynlee4 | 99 comments I'm feeling pretty dumb - I've had Facebook for a while and just don't get it. Can't even tell you what my Facebook address is. What am I missing?

I have

message 46: by Kathy (new)

Kathy  (readr4ever) | 111 comments Not only teens, Laura. My 25-year-old daughter accepted me as a friend, but she recently put a block on me sending her any more "cute" gifts. My 21-year-old son refuses to be friends with me at all.

message 47: by Cyndi (new)

Cyndi (chill77) Kathy, that is so funny! My stepdaughter recently had to block her mom from Myspace!!

message 48: by Emily (new)

Emily (ejfalke) | 576 comments Ew. That kinda bugs me. I guess if you had a really in-your-face-all-the-time kind of parent it's understandable. But Ew.

message 49: by Meg (new)

Meg (megvt) | 3069 comments Hey guys thanx for asking me to be your friend on facebook. I love this!

Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) Muareen & anyone else on myspace, here's my link:

I'm on Facebook as Jo Wnorowski.
