It's really my first week and I've got a good group of friends, related and unrelated, past and current going. It's exhilerating and ultimately draining as I attempt to put a narrative stamp on my life as I go about my daily activities. I wouldn't be surprised if it hampers the steady (up to this point) accretion of vintage baseball cards into my safety deposit box. I've even collected a few 'friends' from the vintage baseball card boards. Bottom line is it's a blast that I don't see letting up too soon.

Guess I'm getting old. I am on facebook and myspace but just don't get it. I rarely check them out because they don't really offer me anything that interests me. I'd rather be checking the posts here or playing a game, etc.
I like to sit outside, drink beer and yell at people. When I do this at home I get arrested, so I go to baseball games and fit right in.
I agree with both of you. I signed up several months ago and just didn't get it at first - like I was born a few years too early for the whole social-networking phenomenon. Over the last few weeks, I've finally realized its time-sucking genius.
Facebook can be a really fun way to pass the time, or a completely obsessive habit that can ruin your social life entirely. It's all about finding the correct balance, and you have to remember that it's a place to interact with friends, and talk about what's going on in your life. If you spend too much time on Facebook, you won't have any real events in your life to talk about there. However, if you can integrate it with your life in minute ways that don't overpower every single experience, you should find that it is a very useful tool for keeping up with your social life and friends.
"I didn’t know what Facebook was, and now that I do know what it is, I have to say, it sounds like a huge waste of time. I would never say the people on it are losers, but that’s only because I’m polite." - Betty White's SNL monolog
