Ok so after all the talk about Facebook. Its good and its bad. I decided last night, to sign up for an acct. I see all my friends and family with one. So now I have one as well. Of course, I posted my own name and photos on it. Im proud. I have friends requests totally 54 today. How do they find you? Will they know if I dont accept their friendship? I cant believe I finally did it.

54 Friend requests, already, you are popular! I closed and deleted my Facebook account about 3 weeks ago now, and have no regrets, I hope you have better luck with your account than I did.

I can understand the curiousity factor. I think it's one of those sites you either love or hate.

I did have one fb account but I didn't have the time so I did not log in for quite a long time. And now I have forgotten my username and password. Probably I will create a new one [em]lol[/.em]. Have fun there!

Great! You are now a part of fb! If you refuse a friend request the user doesn't see it. So don't worry at all :)

wow, you are really popular, once you sign-up you got 54 friends already. I had 1 account on that tool. Just to keep in touch with my old friends from high school and some old pictures. I always keep in my mind, never put anything in that tools, such as updating your activity. I saw so many people always updating their activity. wow, i was surprised. And i never install facebook to my cellphone, hahaha it's dangerous too. It's fun maybe, but for me it might be dangerous. so have fun with your new FB Maria !

It was really strange for me, too, when I first made a Facebook. Do you have any friend so far? If you do, that may be the reason for getting so many friend requests all at once, because their friends might see on their timelines if they made another friend.

I had opened a facebook account long back but never used it. I started using it 2 years ago when I joined my MBA course and when all my classmates were using it, so it was easy to share anything and also have fun. I still don't like to spend much time there and I don't like the developments they make and the surprised they give. The privacy settings are too complex to understand and we never know who is seeing our pix, reading our updates etc... Hope u have a good time there :)

I have been on there since 2009, at least I think that is when I signed on. I used to play the games a lot but gave that up. Now the only time I go over there is to do a few things to make points and money. I will look for you.

It isn't bad unless you start getting involved in a lot then it can get overwhelming at times. I will comment on someones post once in awhile but that is about it as far as socializing there.

I understand. It can get a little overwhelming and sometimes frustrating, at first. But like the first time you ever used a computer, it takes getting used to. Practice does make perfect. Good luck!

It's fun sometimes there. I go on very rarely to check out what my friends are doing. I basically only sign in to promote links. But I will look you up there and send you a friend request. The down side there, and we all know it, is that we do not get paid, so thats why I limit my time there.

It is good to hear that now you have a new Facebook account. Hopefully, it will keep you connected with your friends and relative, also you could check their updates. It is a good site for knowing about activities of those friends and relatives who stay far away from us. By the way, I have a Facebook account and would like you to add me. Please PM me your FB log in details. If you reject anyone's request on FB s/he will not come to know. But s/he will come to know when you accept his/her request.

Facebook is what you make it, I suppose. There are bad things: they don't monitor it, there are bad people on there, there are minors half dressed in their pictures etcetera. Though I made a fan page for all of my bubblews and other articles. Plus my referral links. No T.E. will block FB so its a good way to get them all seen, sort of. Plus more likes is more exposure. Its much easier to maintain than a blog. So that's my newest good thing about facebook. I don't see the hype of the games at all.

Hi Maria ! They will know if you didn't accept their request because they won't see your name in their list . Anyway that is your right to accept or not and they will also understand that. Enjoy but be careful in using facebook , remember you're sharing with the whole world ! Cheers !

For the longest time I didn't accept someone and the bubble went away for it. I didn't know how to find where to accept them after that. I am still illiterate or ignorant about how to navigate facebook very well. So when I finally found that place again I felt so bad that I didn't accept them.

My father used to say; "try it, you might like it!" Now, you can form your own opinion! I am NOT very active there, but I do visit once a day, just to see what my local friends are up to! It seems the "go to" place for this small community that I live in, so I am appraised of local comings and goings...and keep in touch with relatives whom live far away! Good luck..and enjoy!

I am pretty discreet on it...do not share the type of info, that I see some people sharing...and it scares me, some of the stuff that goes Global, and how that happens! My son, whom is 32, grew up with computers, (like your son) he also set up my FB account, but used all security they offered, and warned me to "NEVER" play the games on FB, as they are the inroads to threats to your computer! I cannot confirm this, but I'm not about to take the chance!

Welcome to the club maria. Yeah you're right there are many things that had been said about FB but I think it's more of a plus having an account. As you have said, it's one way to communicate with our relatives especially those far from us or have no contact for as far as we can remember. Anyway, with FB you can constantly contact them and to know what's happening or what they have been doing lately. It's also a way to share our achievements even if they are far from us by uploading photos or words of encouragement if they need any. About the friends request, I don't think the requester would know if we deny their requests especially if we don't know them personally.

If they have your e-mail address or real name it's easy to find you unless you make your account not searchable. (Not sure if you can even do that if they have your e-mail address.)

I do not know how did they find you but, I think if we become new member in facebook, there would be an automatically a suggested friend that facebook will give you. It depends on person if they would choose you as a friend or not. That is what I know.
