Do you have a facebook? If you look at my page you will see Donna's profile along with several other cruisemates.

I have been wanting to join facebook but I do not like getting tons of junk email & spam, etc... when I joined classmates, I got a lot of spam mail. Do you get a lot of email (spam) from joining Facebook?

I think I screwed up on that piece last night. I approved a friend thinking it was a CM'er but now found out that it is from my old school. Do you know how to delete a friend.

I will say I do not like the constant emailing of this that and yonder on it. I gotta figure that out now.

Just had some thoughts, I wonder if I can access facebook from work.

I may try later, but probably not since everything else seems to be blocked. I will CRY the day they realize this site and block it. The day that happens, I will get a new phone and go that route!

I have gotten friend request from some people that are obviously not friends, but I just delete the e-mail and not click on the link. I WILL NOT send a friend recommendation to anyone that I do not know who it is. If you get one from me I know they are a cruisemate. Just be carefull, if you are not sure, but think you might know, try to contact them another way and see if they sent a request. Even myspace get's friend request sometimes that are not people I know. Just be careful.

I get the friend requests from people I don't know. There was one request that sounded like a old high school friend so I accepted her just to find out I don't know her at all. So I deleted her from my friends list. If you are not sure if you know a person and accept by mistake they can always be deleted.

It is wonderful to be able to keep in touch and share pictures with friends, family and fellow Cruisemates through FaceBook.

I just don’t get it, why would people do this "thing" that is their life, and totally what happens on line? Friends, what you do, your day, your life,,,sad
Friends!!!! and through a broadband connection?
To some folks,,,,spend more time in reality,,,this place and places like it,,,sorry but it’s not real.
Whatever you get from it is in your own head, it’s not real, its escapism and all these sites just promote it

It may not be real but we like playing on it just as you (and we) do on cruisemates. It's the same idea but facebook offers more interaction. If you don't like it don't sign up and don't worry about it.

FB is also more private then all other forums where you post (like I'm doing now) for the whole world to read. FB you have your list of friends and those are the people you are posting and in contact with. Also when posting pictures there are options how your pics are viewed. They can be viewed by your direct friends only, friends of friends or everyone so you choice who you want to view your pictures.

What's not real is forums that you chat on with people you don't know.
FB is chating with family, friends and cruisemates that is real.

Spending more time in reality is sometimes easier said then done. With everyone working, their families and always on the go getting together gets difficult. It's a great way to keep in touch with relatives that don't live nearby.

I've had a FB page for a bit now and today joined the cruisemates group.

I did get a friend request that sounded like it was from a CruiseMates member so I did okay. Well she is a cruiser and she "sells" cruises. In one day I had 3 emails about joining cruises, etc. I then deleted her and I did send her a note about the SPAM emails. She replied she did not think they were spam but would stop and she has.

Well, then sign me up for living in a fantasy world. For me Face book has been good. Thru it I am able to keep up with far away friends and relatives than I have ever been able too before. A couple weeks ago I found out that an old friend I went to Bible School with in Maine, now literally lives right in my back yard - just over the border in the province of Quebec. We are planning on meeting very soon.

Another friend from this same school - wife passed away this week, FB has allowed us to daily encourage him as he shared with us each day the final stages of her life. As he is a pastor of a large church this allowed him to share the information, but not have to repeat it over and over...
I now chat with an old friends sister who is developmentally challenged. She does take a lot of my time, but she is lonely and this gives her family a little relief from her constant chatter if she is chatting with me online.

I have been able to see pictures of proms, grandbabies, weddings,
and just be able to share a kind word, or a silly remark. I have been able to chat much easier with cousins I had lost touch with, and aunts.

I don't have time to call all these people, or write them personal letters on a regular basis, this is a way we can all catch up and remain in touch, even if it is on a different level than ever before.

The only people on my FaceBook account that I do not have a real history with are some CruiseMates, whom I may not know personally, but interact with here every day. To me perhaps this forum is less of a reality, for we talk about daily accounts of our lives, with for the most part, people we don't know.

Just my thoughts...of which we are all entitled

Yes, I am"hooked" on FB for all the good reasons mentioned above. It is extremely convenient and a time saver. I am a widower and have an active social life, expecially ballroom/latin dancing. I can quickly converse diretly with friends on FB or look at dance threads to determine who is going where wrt the different dance activities.

I also like to play games (scramble, word twist, chess, tetris, etc) with friends or FB folks from all over the world. So FB keeps my mind sharp, so an arguement can be made of the health benifits of a healthier mind and social network.

And that is my two cents worth.

So if you feel this way....why are you on cruisemates posting in chit chat?

Hello Facebook friends! Well..... last night I accidentally deactivated my FB account. I received an e-mail telling me how to reinstate it. When I have a little time I plan to do this. So look for me to send out friend requests again. I'll try to remember everyone but if I miss you, would you send me one. I've already received one from Jess. I'm such a knucklehead!!!!!
