Facebook

I'm thinking about opening-up a Facebook account, and was wondering if you can do the "set to private" mode like Myspace? I never opened a Myspace account, however, my daughter has her myspace set to private. Anyone here have someone try to contact you (from the past) that you refused or just plain ignored? It's a great tool, but it can let those certain people in to some degree.

  • I know what you mean! I haven't opened one just because I really don't want to be in contact with all those people. It really connects you to EVERYONE! Hubby has one and I might break down soon, but not yet.

  • Yea. Myspace and Facebook are really not that bad. If you set them to private... and facebook is automatically private. I just got one in November and I never selected a "Private" status but everyone HAS to add me to be able to see any info on me. And as long as you add only people you know on both accounts, your info is safe. :) You can message me if you have any questions and I can try to help.

  • Thanks to everyone who replied to my post! I'm still on the fence on this one!
    I guess that I could try it, see if I like it, and if I choose to close the account I can do so.

    Thanks again!
