We at MF realize that social networking is all the rage with the kids these days™, so we decided to create our own Mac-Forums page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mac-Forumscom/28961292697).

If you're a Facebook user, feel free to become a fan of Mac-Forums (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mac-Forumscom/28961292697) and help spread the MF love®.

In addition to our new Facebook group, don't forget the MF Flickr group (http://www.flickr.com/groups/mac-forums/)!

As time goes on we'll be looking for other networks to create groups for our members.

Myspace is so unstable, though.

That's the one thing that I like about facebook and hate about myspace: real people (for the most part :P)

i saw where you can request to change your real name to something else. maybe you can join, then not do anything other than request the name change.
i'll be your friend if you join! ;)


i'm just starting to really dig into this. pretty interesting, especially groups. joined a few of those, even a weird little fan club for one of my best friends from college who now teaches for the Joe Cubert school in new jersey. he's not even a member of the group!

ok, for all who've joined up with facebook...

what's the weirdest, or weirdest named group you joined?

i'm in "Fernando Ruiz is the reason i wake up in the morning". actually, fernando is the guy i mentioned in the post above.

i'm also in "Just because my car is gay doesn't mean I am...". not a support group, or PFLAG offshoot. it's for subaru owners. obviously, at least in america, subarus (other than the impreza) have the the distinction of being known as the car often owned by lesbians - although most of the lesbians i've known have owned saturns (or some other GM).

I guess I left our Facebook group. My roommate and I made a bet that I couldn't go two weeks without Facebook, so I deleted my account. I'll probably go running back eventually though...

hey MHC,

according to facebook:
Did you misspell your own name? Are you tired of that embarrassing nickname?
You can request a change from the "Settings" tab on the My Account page. For quality control purposes, we confirm all name changes before they take place.

at least then maybe you can alter your last name or request only an initial be used or something?

Well it wouldn't surprise me. That's why I put a ready-to-throw-away email addie (if I need to do it) and the least amount of personal info I could in my profile.

I had decided I would not post any of my images or GB tunes there either.

Most of that Privacy Policy would not stand a chance in court. Just because they say it is so does not make it so.

...and the rest is pretty crazy, but probably not anything. If the government wanted to collect information about us, they have other ways to do so. What use is it to know what my favorite book is?

It's mainly a way to publicize Mac-Forums. It's not meant for discussions and things, we do have the forums for that you know. :)
