Reddman is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Facebook

I think it’s fair to say that I’m a big fan of Facebook. I check it and update it fairly often and I’ve installed different applications to see what they do. I have found that it’s an excellent way to keep in contact with friends, particularly those in the UK and also a good way to hear from friends who I lost contact with for whatever reason. Is anyone else a big fan of facebook?

P.s. If there are any Brits in New England who are on facebook I set up a group called Brits in New England

Default Re: Facebook

A lot of people I know around the world are sending me invites to be friends with them, I have ventured in a few times but havent actually had the time to figure it out yet.

I use Skype to keep in touch with my mates back we ring each other all the time, but facebook looks good for sharing photo's and such like.

Default Re: Facebook

we use it for keeping in touch with all our friends... the industry I work in is fairly small so when companies go down (which 2 have that I worked at) people tend to spread far and wide... difficult to keep in touch...

with facebook we have Ex "so and so" groups and can keep in contact as a group and individually...

I love it.
