  • I have one as does my daughter. I have used it mostly to help plan my reunion this July. I think personally it sucks and is hard to figure out. Most people though love it. Not sure what sort of info you are looking for though

  • I have a FaceBook and a MySpace. Personally, I couldn't figure out why anyone uses Facebook, it's just...blah... It is sort of like MySpace in a way, in ways of communication, I suppose, but on Facebook you can only see someone's profile by being their friend. What kind of info are you looking for?

  • i have one its not a bad site. i think its better and cleaner than myspace (and probly a little safer) my mom and my sister and brother have one too. maybe you should make one and see for yourself. if you dont like it and dont approve then you can delete it and talk to your child about it (if they have one)

  • My DD (11) wants one, and I've told her I'm going to check it out first.
    I just got one, and haven't really had time to check it out. I imagine it's a lot like CafeMom - there's a lot of stuff on here I don't want her seeing, but a lot of good too.
    I like that only her "friends" can see her page, but I don't like the idea in general. I'm probably going to opt NO for now, and wait until she's a little older.
    Still, when she gets one, I'm going to monitor it closely. I WILL be a "friend" on there who checks her page regularly.

  • I decided to go ahead and let her with the condition that she only accept as friends people who she knows in real life. And I told her I could check it when I wanted to.

    Seemed like a good compromise.
