I have joined both my primary school and secondary school groups today and it has pretty much confirmed what I said upthread; there is only one person in the secondary school group that I know, the vast majority are either at uni now or graduated in the last couple of years.

Haha - my latest friend has Rowetta as one of his friends.

I want you to get Beryl to join, so I can be her friend.

Oh she'd love to fwend you, CJ!

"I don't know 'oo you are sweetie, but the kettle's always on 'ere, darlin'"

Seriously, I just looked and I think she IS on facebook, but hasn't got started yet. No fwends yet :( I'll ask her later. But I'm not letting you lot loose on her!

Dr.C, Thursday, 2 August 2007 11:48 (twelve years ago) link

LOL people posting their phone numbers where anyone can see.

jessie monster, Thursday, 2 August 2007 13:14 (twelve years ago) link

There's a whole bunch of people I can't befriend on Facebook because I don't know their real names. Sad? Yes.

accentmonkey, Thursday, 2 August 2007 13:21 (twelve years ago) link

what about those who have gotten married. include maiden names people!

Ms Misery, Thursday, 2 August 2007 13:24 (twelve years ago) link

You tease. (xxxpost)

Accentmonkey, problem is that I can't spell the surnames and have no way of checking. I am sad panda :(

kv_nol, Thursday, 2 August 2007 13:28 (twelve years ago) link

umm, my facebook news feed is going crazy. It's saying things like "9 of your friends have written on so-and-so's wall", when like one person has actually written on it.

What's the deal? Have other people noticed this? oh god.

Okay someone from school has just tried to friend me - I've not seen him since the age of 16. Usually I am prepared to give people from school the benefit of the doubt, even if I didn't like them at the time. Then I read his profile, including choice cuts like:

"Religious Views: 102% agnostic -2% catholic 100% millwall"

"Favorite Books: Do androids dream of electic sheep? other than that
biographies of heroes of mine.
The bible, because it's really really funny.
razzle, readers wives, h & e "

and in particular:

"Interests: Football, other things too, like football, millwall, naked
swedish ladies table tennis (with or without the ball), topless farts,
knob gags, growing my beard. "

As I said, I am usually willing to give people from school the benefit of the doubt - in this case I am considering deleting my Facebook profile, leaving the country and having reconstructive surgery so that he can never find me.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 08:53 (twelve years ago) link

knob gags? is that what I think it is?

nathalie, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 09:17 (twelve years ago) link

Haha I dont think anyone from school will find me, unless they know my email address which is very unlikely.

Today I sent a msg to an old housemate of mine from Canberra. I'm pretty sure its him, he has an unusual name. I hope he replies, it'd be cool to catch up with him.

Trayce, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 09:20 (twelve years ago) link

I had my first message from an ex-girlfriend a couple of days ago. But she finished with me because she decided she was gay (yes, I'm that bad) so there's no awkwardness around it, it was actually a pleasant surprise.

Colonel Poo, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 09:44 (twelve years ago) link

Oh dear. I just rofled. Sorry CP.

kv_nol, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 09:48 (twelve years ago) link

knob gags? is that what I think it is?

No.

But she finished with me because she decided she was gay

This has happened to me too. She's now married. To my then best friend.

Mark C, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 09:52 (twelve years ago) link

Actually that's disingenuous. He wasn't my best friend until a year or so after I dated her.

Mark C, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 09:53 (twelve years ago) link

Oh she really is gay, it wasn't a line. She lives in Brighton now, even!

Colonel Poo, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 09:56 (twelve years ago) link

stevie nixed, we are now friends! interestingly, we list exactly the same 'activities'... ;)

plz don't challenge me to scrabble! i sux big time, and am getting some practise in with my equally suxy friend before i can engage with others.

Rubyredd, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 09:59 (twelve years ago) link

Colonel, mine really was gay too! After me, she desultorily tried to lose her virginity to some other guy, it didn't work, and she then exclusively dated women for several years. Interestingly, her first long term girlfriend then date my best friend after they split up, and it was only when the third part of the triangle joined together that they settled down and got married. Interestingly, they never had a threesome.

Mark C, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 10:18 (twelve years ago) link

xpost Oh god, I SUXOR EVEN BADLIER at Scrabble! And you like the same Bukowski books as I do! HURRAH! :-) And yes, as few/little activity as possible.hah!

nathalie, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 10:20 (twelve years ago) link

we are obviously the awesomest people, then!

Rubyredd, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 10:22 (twelve years ago) link

Now that is complicated!

xpost to Mark C

Colonel Poo, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 10:24 (twelve years ago) link

xpost Naturellement!

nathalie, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 10:27 (twelve years ago) link

and we both have excellent taste in spectacle frames ;)

Rubyredd, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 10:29 (twelve years ago) link

i think it might be time to delete my myspaz profile (now that i'm a fb addict): this fucking KID just sent me a friend request - http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=135259671. because obviously he could tell from my profile that i want to be friends with a 15yr old school boy.

Rubyredd, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 11:07 (twelve years ago) link

xpost Ah we need'em to read all those GREBT books! :-)
And I also deleted the MySpace profile. Go on, you can do it!

nathalie, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 11:13 (twelve years ago) link

Yes, I deleted my myspace profile too. I really lost it with them when they started showing me ads while I was logging in (or they were trying to, anyway).

accentmonkey, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 11:22 (twelve years ago) link

i'm seriously considering it - most of my good friends/internet friends on there are people i speak with on other boards/forums/aim/email, so it seems kinda unnecessary to still have it. but i like the slideshows for all my favourite art, and i like the blog where i get to post my friend's poetry and writing.

definitely considering it, though...

Rubyredd, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 11:23 (twelve years ago) link

Is information on the rate of deletions of profiles on social networking sites in the public domain? I think it's an interesting topic. we are always hearing abt the growth in the no. of users of facebook, myspace or whatever but presumably this doesn't take deletions into a/c.

it's surely more common for social networking profiles to become dormant rather than be deleted tho. I haven't done anything on my myspace for ages apart from read incoming messages and friend requests but I have no plans to delete the profile.

Grandpont Genie, Wednesday, 8 August 2007 11:26 (twelve years ago) link

I'm liking this virtual cd rack thing, hopefully some dudes I went to school with will now finally realise how pretentious I am.

W4LTER, Thursday, 16 August 2007 05:59 (twelve years ago) link

because obviously he could tell from my profile that i want to be friends with a 15yr old school boy.

Mark G, Thursday, 16 August 2007 08:08 (twelve years ago) link

Okay srsly who in their right mind puts 'Looking For: A Relationship' on their profile?

Matt DC, Monday, 20 August 2007 12:04 (twelve years ago) link

Obv not you. :-) I don't know, I wouldn't do it personally, but why not? If you are indeed looking for a relationship, why not post that? If I had been single, I'd want the option: "Piss off, I like being single" option

nathalie, Monday, 20 August 2007 12:15 (twelve years ago) link

my particular favourite is
looking for: whatever i can get

Rubyredd, Monday, 20 August 2007 12:17 (twelve years ago) link

^^ whats wrong with that?

Filey Camp, Monday, 20 August 2007 12:23 (twelve years ago) link

nothing! that's why i said it's my *favourite*

Rubyredd, Monday, 20 August 2007 12:26 (twelve years ago) link

oh! yes, i see, its a pretty good way to approach anything

Filey Camp, Monday, 20 August 2007 12:32 (twelve years ago) link

acrobat, Monday, 20 August 2007 12:46 (twelve years ago) link

I think I have "looking for: Random Play" on my profile. Yes, so I am jealous of people who have iPod Shuffles.

ken c, Monday, 20 August 2007 12:48 (twelve years ago) link

work has blocked facebook so i have to live vicariously through this thread.

actually can someone tell me some "news" from my facebook page?

ken c, Monday, 20 August 2007 12:49 (twelve years ago) link

i'm on it, ken...

Rubyredd, Monday, 20 August 2007 12:57 (twelve years ago) link
