Ponderings of a facebook nature.  
Friends, Romans,f'listers! lend me you ears and opinions.  I keep hearing about the wonders of facebook, and have considered getting an account.  My only problem is that here I feel free to be myself...ie idiot with tenancies to ramble, not many filters in place and generally able to be me.

Now it seems on facebook you have to give your name, and to be honest there are plenty on facebook I'd like to avoid like the plague.  Namely most of the little darlings I work with, and I think I'd miss being able to be utterly random and prone to gibbering on.

So come on and explain to me why facebook is so wonderful, and if any of you are on it and how to keep in contact with you!  Come enquiring minds really need to know.

It's getting to the point I may join, I have been told there are different privacy filters I can use so I should be able to keep out the undesirables. Yup back to the guys at work *G*

I think that might be a good idea, just dig the moat deeper and put in the sharks and I'd be happy.

I'm over there and I have a few LJ friends on my page but I also have a lot of family and old school friends so I keep my LJ completely separate from facebook :)

I can see me wandering over and joining, because there is at least friend I'd like to track down. Perhaps it's time to find out what the fuss is about *G*

Since I discovered LJ, Facebook is dormant for me.
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on April 21st, 2011 07:01 pm (UTC)
I must admit I have more in common with the people here, but I suppose facebook would give me another outlet. I got to say though I have a hell of a lot of fun here!
Siannesi_star_x on April 21st, 2011 07:06 pm (UTC)
For me... Facebook is just my old school friends and work colleagues!
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on April 21st, 2011 07:15 pm (UTC)
I think that mine would be much the same, only without the work colleagues, I like it here I get to misbehave, and generally refuse to grow up *G*

I would be mortified if people found out my LJ that I know. I was stuttering my way through Wincest to my sisters the other day!
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on April 21st, 2011 07:25 pm (UTC)
I can understand that one! my boss knows I write fic, and I printed out my Supernatural-Glee crossover the other day for her. She's also aware of some of my other fics, but for the most part no one knows exactly what I get up to!

I can just imagine me trying to explain J2! and that's before you get to the bracelet verse I write. My mum keeps asking me what I'm writing....one day I'm going to run out of excuses.
Siannesi_star_x on April 21st, 2011 08:09 pm (UTC)
Supernatural-Glee crossover? Must... read.. *Grin*

I tried to explain Wincest and my younger sisters kept saying "so... do they still write them as brothers, or just gay?" and they couldn't understand it. Then I was telling them about AU J2 and they were like.. "Oh! That's fine!"

The uncorrupt minds of non-SPN-fangirlness.

*Shakes head in disapproval*

I even hide my love from my fiance. I mean, we watch SPN together and he knows that I love Dean and every move he makes just makes me guh. But he doesn't know. At least, I don't think he does.

He doesn't understand, y'know.

...MEN. Just men. Fictional men are A-OK, but real men? Who needs 'em.

I wrote that this week for a challenge on Dean_Sam, damn it was fun.

As for those kind of explanations...well I tried last year when I took a friend from work to Asylum! poor girl was utterly shell shocked! talk about a rude awakening *G* But she gets it now.

My long suffering other half just rolls his eyes at me and refers to Jensen as the bow legged wonder. I laugh and then kick him in the shin.

I can second that opinion, fictional men are so much easier to deal with *G*

Facebook is the tool of the devil. If I really wanted to talk to old school friends I haven't spoken to in 30 years and family Im not close to, I'd ring them. I'd rather talk to people I have things in common with, wether they be half way across the world, than people who sem to think we have things in common cause we're related. I won't touch facebook with a bargepole. And yes, I'm a little back, but just a little!
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on April 21st, 2011 08:22 pm (UTC)
*HUGS* oh you're back!!!!! *Bounce* sorry about that. I get like this every so often about facebook. Then I think about the fact, that certain people I'd rather not have anything to do with could have contact with me. you know that bargepole, I don't suppose it's got a friend has it?
realscape on April 21st, 2011 09:28 pm (UTC)
All can say is my dad asked me to create him a facebook account. Within 12 hours he'd been friended by people he didn't remember knowing. I dont want to talk to people I may be related to but have met like 4 times as a kid. I want to talk to people who understand me. Abd believe me, family and friends never did. And Im not back, just for u right now
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on April 22nd, 2011 12:18 pm (UTC)
Thank you for popping back to talk to me! I'm backing away from the facebook idea at speed. It's dawned on me just how many people I really want to avoid, and it would be like throwing myself into the lions den. *hugs*

Personally, I avoid it like the plague - but that's just me, lol!

sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on April 22nd, 2011 12:19 pm (UTC)
Don't worry I'm getting there myself! and I will be wandering over to your journal to do a mass catch up on your postings! I've been all over the place, so sorry for not commenting. *HUGS*
     Mandya_phoenixdragon on April 22nd, 2011 12:47 pm (UTC)
