Facebook & MySpace

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:
My Facebook Page

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:

Glad i'm not alone in my hesitation/neglect of these sites. I have a MySpace (which my children help set up, LOL & Facebook (finally messed with it not long ago & added some info & a picture). I find facebook not very user-friendly & super aggravating! Although I did have an antiques dealer (i'd spent hours going thru her shop & had some lovely conversation & exchanged email addys with her back at Thanksgiving, while visiting friends) on the other side of the state find me there yesterday, LOL, go figure.

Also very hesitant about these sites. Being a new blogger and "apprentice" bearmaker I need to know how the bearmakers communicated with each other before blogging. My next question is this ... how on earth does an "apprentice" bearmaker get into the international bearmaking community and get the other bloggers to read her blog? I really need some help with this one!!

Hi Kelly, I am new to this computer networking world, and I can become very easily overwhelmed with it all. I have set up the various sites for myself on Facebook and MySpace, but I don't spend too much time there. I like the blogging and I like TT and I love making teddy bears. Too much computer time takes me away from bear time lol... but I also want to meet teddy bear people and most of you are on the computer. Hugs, Vicki (Custom Teddys)

Hi! I joined your page as a fan! I resisted these places for so long but actually have enjoyed my first week on Facebook!
