  • If you 'like' these companies they keep you up on the current 'news' regarding their services/products. Invitations to special events and coupons.

  • I like facebook because it has replaced my email and I can keep in touch with family, share photos in one shot and give updates without spamming everyone's email or worrying that I "forgot" someone

  • I like facebook because I've found classmates I graduated with who live all across the country, also relatives & we now keep in touch, which probably wouldn't have happened without this site. Also, facebook can be PRIVATE. There are different security settings to choose from, just like cafemom. It's fun & can be addicting. There's a place for cafemom & facebook, in my opinion. I enjoy them both!!

  • You can set it to where nothing but you namecan be seen by someone who is not your 'friend' However if you post something on a friends 'wall' who is not set to private anyone can see that. If they are set to private only their friends can read it. You can keep it as private as you want to. You just have to read the settings carefully when setting up and managing the account.

  • Cafemom is NOT private either!! Sign Out of Cafemom and do a google search on your screen name!! If you didn't realize it before, you're in for a sticker shock!!!! Just like facebook and twitter, some areas are private, but most areas are not!

  • it depends on the privacy setting you set for your account.. for me only friends can view stuff on my page if I accept them as my friend. But it's a place I can keep in touch with family and friends, especially those that live out of state. I can see pictures of how they are doing (like a cousin of mine who just graduated from college and I'm not able to leave state to go to see her for).
