The reason myLot is different from facebook

On facebook you have your friends, relatives, acquaintances, bosses, colleagues They know you. You may be annoyed with one of them, but you can't voice it. Here you can be you...that is huge. You can also hide your identity...if you so choose. So three cheers for myLot...hugs to all myLotters.

I've never done Facebook! Just doesn't appeal to me. I don't hide my identity on myLot but I wouldn't go as far as giving out my address or phone number or anything like that. I just find it incredible how much personal stuff some people are prepared to put out to the world on Facebook.

Yeah...facebook seems like being constantly in some crowded carnival. Comparatively, myLot has a sense of sophistication about it. I am on facebook and I have not hidden my identity here. lol. But at times, I do show some personal aspects of me. :)

I agree with you. We can rant here about our friends and relatives and get advice but we can't do that in fb.

Ranting has such a calming effect...in real life we have to bottle it up..as it can ruin relationship or affect job.

In myLot we do not know any one personally and we can discuss anything that comes in our mind. In Facebook we know people and we might not be able to discuss things openly. Here as you said we can hide our identity.

@vandana7 I think it has to be facebook as it is more personal. You can control what you see, hear and share with family and close friends. However that being said I like a lot of people on Mylot and would not mind some of them knowing me on facebook although I guess they would find me pretty boring!

@garymarsh6 .. No way...somehow I am not sure you ever participate in fun talk. :) Peter (pgiblett) does at times...but he keeps that distance. So we tend to have different classifications...this person, I can't be cutting that kind of jokes type. :) WorDazza participates at times, pgntwo..often enough, but you come up with interesting stuff too...like how to address the royalty, and now you have one on Queen Victoria I think. :) I remember that hanged, drawn, and quartered thing was what I learned from you on Bubblews. And you also recommend interesting posts. :)

I feel the same way. Here we relieve our stress ..as human beings we are designed to have individuality and therefore have differences with loved ones. When differences are kind of unpalatable, instead of bottling them up, we get an outlet. Therefore, myLot is considerably superior to facebook I feel. Almost a professional site

Oh yes, I deactivated my FB account. Wanted none of those mentioned above! And while I did that in nicer times, proved to be good for me. Would have been dangerous these days. Yes, here we get freedom to be. I did misstep by bringing the family here... but then they left and I rejoined so all went well :) Annoyance I do not voice here too. That micro-site is for that!
