    That thing will suck your life away...

    For about 2-3 months.

    Then it just goes back to being innocuous. There's no point except getting lots of friends, it's like friendster all over again. Pretty useless.

    It was kind of a fun 2-3 months though, stupid fun, but fun nonetheless.

    yeah, i'm on there.

    i don't use it to meet people, though. ...which is supposed to be the point of it, but whatever.

    i have a physics group where i "helped" out with the homework assignments. apparently, people in my class who didn't care to join previously were prompted to once they found out about this.

    and all but a handful of people were to join the group. ...and became dependent on me, so i slaughtered them like cows come exam day. :D

    anyway, facebook, yes.

  7. My college is too punk to be on facebook.
     
  8. FACEBOOK!!! I think for a few months I spent more time with Facebook than I did Talkbass. It's the greatest waste of time I have ever seen.

    I think facebook is actually a great social tool. I have gotten into contact with people that I otherwise would not have, and I really appreciate that.
    If anyone wants to add me, search for Benjamin Fribley at Earlham College-Plus I have a great pic of me playing bass in my profile! Well, not so great but ok.

    Also, Nick, I hope things are going well for you down in Miami.

    yup yup, i'm on there, Chris Cona. Eli started the bassists of nyu group, which was a good call, great way to get audition calls. Then there's the "who wants to jam?" and "want to start a band?" group with 6 people in them...that's just a shame.
