I spend 30 minutes/week on Facebook. I don't friend any coworkers, period. I also rarely post. Now if I started friending professors and what not, I think I'd just create a new account for professional purposes only.

I deleted my facebook, or rather disabled. I found myself wasting time on it. I could use that time for much better activities. Just my opinion. Maybe, when Im done with school I will reactivate.

My Psych teacher was talking about a correlation study with falling grade averages at MIT because of the distractions of the internet on students in class. (IE. Playing on Facebook instead of taking notes on a laptop) Obviously, if you have good discipline to not log in then it doesn't matter.

I think that's a good thing! :lol2:

We use fb a lot for keeping each other notified about things at school, and even have some private groups for studying and projects...

Facebook is just so integrated into everything anymore...All my phone contacts are blended with it too....

I am seriously considering going off the grid after what happened to me. It's just so risky. I almost got expelled for a "lol"

Just think about it...

I just want to say that you don't have to have your real name attached to your facebook account. It has to be a real sounding name, but your facebook page does not have to have your real first and last name on it. Mine doesn't. This will make it MUCH HARDER for people to search and find you on facebook. Even when I friend family I have to tell them who I really am, LOL!

Actually, you can set up your facebook account so that it can't be searched for....makes it even easier.

I see no reason to delete mine. My supervisor at the hospital is even my friend! As are some of my coworkers, all RN's(one other CNA). My dad's a politician, so I'm already cautious as to what I write and post, but I'm mature and able to make good decisions. I don't party so I don't have bad pictures being tagged of me. I don't have pictures of me drinking on there, I don't update bad statuses or whatnot....and honestly, I have a lot of friends all over the world(I was an exchange student) and FB is a great way to stay in touch....I'd hate to lose that.

No FB here. Ever. You cannot google me. ;) Not that I don't see how it MAY be helpful for some and of course with discipline and common sense you can stay out of trouble by either wasting time or posting the wrong things.

It's just that I watched a 60 mins interview where they showed early documentation of the guy who owns FB (forgot his name) and he mentioned something along the lines of "I can't believe how many idiots sign up and give me all their info"... So I'd rather stay away.

Also, if I have to use a fake name and sensor what I post to "market" to a certain crowd or not befriend certain people then what's the point. It's not really me. My real friends know how to reach me.

No. I'll just have to make sure not to post pics of me and body parts or organs or whatever the placenta is considered. :)

so what's wrong with using a different name on facebook? that way if you're searched your profile won't be immediately found.

you can edit your privacy settings so that your name is not searchable.
