Normally I don't fall prey to doing whatever everyone else is doing just because they're doing it. But this week I did. Now keeping in mind I am not a spring chicken and I have no kids, I always had this perception that Facebook & MySpace was mainly for teenagers.
I used to have a MySpace page. Actually I had two of them, one for business and one for me. I finally stopped logging on and they sent me a notice that if I didn't log on my pages would be deleted from inactivity. I still didn't log on. I don't know if they are still there or not. I got so much spam from having them, that it didn't seem worth it. I should probably think about revisiting my work page, but I am really not that enthused.
This week I saw a large group of people talking about their Facebook business page, so I went ahead and set one up just because I saw everyone else was doing it. I mean why not right. Some of the pictures kept disappearing and I had to re-upload them for some reason, but I more or less have it all set up.
The thing is, I am not sure what the point of it is. I tried to look for other Facebook pages...just general ones involving things that interest me. I really couldn't find any. The site seems hard to use in general. At least on My Space I could find things. Maybe I am just missing something? Sometimes I think I am just getting old. Technology can be great, but sometimes I miss a simpler way of life.
Anyway if you really want to have a look you can, here is the link:

Note: I tried to reciprocate to the people who are fans, but I guess unless I have a personal page I can't add you as friends? I am still trying to figure it out...
Edit: I just had a peek, my MySpace pages are still there...go figure! I went ahead and updated it a little. I need to add new pics but I didn't get that far yet. Here is the link to that if you're interested:
