Does anyone have Facebook? I got into it because I was trying to contact a student of mine whose email address had bounced. I managed to find him in Facebook but the result of that was so did most of my high school friends. Its interesting seeing them 26 years later. See what happened to them and all.

Recently, I've been adding photos to the site and noticed that Chip has also done the same. There are lots of treat pictures of him from babyhood to now. Didn't know that Chip had been a volunteer fire fighter, medic, and in the army.

Photos can really give you an insight into someone's life.

I am on Facebook. It's kind of interesting to see what has happened to everyone.

And also interesting to see that I'm aging fabulously well. :lol:

Yea, I'm on face book too, but very limited. I don't like relative strangers having that much access to my personal life. Have hooked up with some old friends though.

I got one just a few months ago. It's okay, I guess. No one from my past has found me yet, and I haven't been looking for anyone, either. I did take the StraightActing quiz, though. I scored a 2.

I got a 2 too. I think it was the bubble bath question that gave me away. :D

I have a MySpace. Is Facebook better? I always choose the wrong one. Picked Beta instead of VHS back in 1982. :P

Yeah. Found an old friend from 30 years ago. And he had found a bunch of people. Old skeletons. Kind of fun.

I have a friend who keeps asking me if I have a Facebook page. I have to admit that I have no dedication when it comes to blogging or maintaining a page. I had a MySpace page and forgot about it.

It would be good to reconnect with some old friends but there are some people that I didn't like then and don't think I'll like now.

I have a facebook but I'm not into it at all. For me it was like a mini fad; cool at first, but after awhile its really something I don't care about. I check it once in a while. I'll admit its always nice to see friend requests from people you haven't seen in a long time. The scary thing about it is people who sit on it for hours on end.

I have no intention of getting a Facebook page. Maybe it's because I'm older, but I see it as a waste of time and energy. I'd rather be reading a book, listening to music, working out or watching a movie.

My favorite thing about Facebook is that it has allowed me to reconnect with people that I haven't seen in YEARS. Thanks to FB, I've reestablished contact with people I knew in GRADE SCHOOL. (plus high school and college, of course). It's great because now we're electronically connected again, shooting messages back and forth and exchanging pictures.

Yeah, I'm on FB and I love it because I, too, have reconnected with old classmates. In fact, I'm meeting up with a few of them next weekend.

Lately, I've been especially loving the folks who are uploading old high school photos... Hilarious stuff.

You're right. It's just like passing notes back and forth, like we did in high school!

Not really. The guys did a lot of it too. Especially to the girls.

I just did a search on Facebook for all the other Justin Kavanaghs out there. There are only about 15; I thought my name was more common than that. I guess that makes me special.

Most of them are in Ireland, which I get. One of them is really hot, too.

How did a good ol' Serbian boy like yourself end up with a name like Justin Kavanagh? You are Serbian, no?

Can one fairly assume that when someone doesn't put an INTERESTED IN (MEN, WOMEN) response on their profile, that the likelihood of them being gay is greater?

Why would a straight person not include such information on their profile?

I tend to assume that when there isn't a response that they might gay.

I would say no, I did my page primarily for business pupposes and since I was not sure of the conitative meaning of that question I opted out of answering that question.

I would say no as well, on the basis that they might not be interested at all.

i think most married or partnered people do not answer that questions. it signals that they're looking.

Or maybe they like both? Does it give an option for both?
