    Re: Help me decide about Facebook

    I have done all of the above. I guess after navigating MiceChat for so long, I find navigating Facebook very different.

    the newsfeed vs livefeed is a new feature. The newsfeed you will find is very manipulative of what you see (and can be very delayed). The best view is to click on your user lists on the left, and you'll see everything you haven't hidden.

    Hide posts from chatty apps or games people play you aren't interested in.. then the signal to noise is much better.

    Re: Help me decide about Facebook

    There's too much clutter on Facebook. I tend to hide a lot of the news feed. I think that's the right term. Well today, I wondered why I wasn't seeing anything at all from a few of my friends. It seems that I hid them accidentally. I am now extra careful, and make sure that I read everything that pops up when I click.

    I guess you have to take the good with the bad.

    Re: Help me decide about Facebook

    I thought long and hard before I took the plunge to join Facebook. I spend a lot of time here at MiceChat, and I have a lot of hobbies. I didn't really need another distraction.

    So far, I have liked the fact that I can drop my grandson a message on Facebook in the morning if I want, and sometime during the day he will read it. That's better for us than a text message on his phone that may interrupt him at the wrong time.

    I have reconnected with a few people that used to be daily MiceChatters. I haven't found too many family members, but I have found a few. Of course, I haven't been on there that long.

    I do plan on posting a lot of my vacation photos there. Not too much family stuff, and no pictures of my grandson. His mom is in charge of that department and she's been on Facebook for a long time.

    I do not the Requests feature at all.

    One thing to consider is what is your alternative to facebook? I used to use myspace, but everyone I knew changed over to facebook. Initially I disliked facebook, but once I got a handle on how it worked, I can't imagine not having it. What I like best is the people I have the hardest time keeping up with, younger family members, it is the best way of staying in touch!

    it basically serves no purpose at the time. vbulletin added a bunch of 'me too' social features to the product which basically suck and duplicate or overlap with many other things. The customized profile page and personal albums are the only real useful stuff. The rest is really just 'me too' fluff... including 'friends'.

    I sometimes thinks perhaps that I need to get a life. Then again, I realize that MiceChat has become a big part of my life.

    I don't see that happening at all on Facebook. It just doesn't have the same sense of community that I feel here.
    My Facebook "friends" come from various circles with more varied interests. Some are mice chatters, some are bike club members, some are relatives, some are people I used to work with, some are college classmates, etc.

    As far as my Mice Chat "friends list" goes: I pay no attention to it. I know who my friends are on Mice Chat, and I don't need a list to keep track. If someone asks to be on my list, I'll probably approve it, but it doesn't mean all that much to me.

    Re: Help me decide about Facebook

    It really is true that you can customize a lot of stuff on Facebook. My grandson was complaining about people tagging him in photos, and I told him that he should customize it so that if they do that, he's the only one to see those photos.

    Sometimes the wording is a little confusing, but eventually, I learn the lingo by trial and error.

    I have been busy sorting my Disneyland, Disney World, and Scrapbook photos so that eventually I can put some of those in albums on Facebook.

    Re: Help me decide about Facebook

    Facebook actually skews older these days. I know a lot of 50+ people who are on it and enjoying it quite a bit. As for myself, I've been able to find people I honestly had thought were lost to me forever, both family and friends as well as old high school classmates. I don't get to get on it much, but when I do, it can be enjoyable.

    This is, for me, the killer app in Facebook. Almost a third of my high school class is now on it, and some of those are friends I lost touch with years ago when we all went in different directions for college.

    The photo posting, sharing and commenting is easy and awesome, too.
