    lol at RogerG.

    They really should have introduced a web app for all platforms for the push. The world is not going to be impressed by a poor web version to update.

    I deleted mine, just didn't use it. Now I have Facebook thanks to my wife and kids. I don't use it either. The whole thing kinda flummoxes me. I tried, but really not all that sure about having my life out there for everyone to see and comment on. If I want to share I can always just look at my children and *gasp* talk to them.

    As for folks that live a distance away, I thought that's what email was for. Businesses make sense to me, but I somehow feel that as individuals we put too much emphasis on sharing what is essentially useless information. Add that to the insane number of friends (are they really friends) and I just kind of chuckle at the whole thing.

    I'll have to continue using it though since its part of an pseudo experiment for church. I just groan everytime I do.

    100% agree.

    Not to mention the security issues associated with FB.
