Yes! It's not only a good way to stay in touch with my large brood, but from a business perspective it's a great way to connect with potential clients and to promote my books. I'm assuming that we can share our Facebook links on this thread about Facebook... I actually have several Facebook pages:
My personal page ~
www.facebook.com/amythystraine
A page for The Witch's Corner ~
www.facebook.com/ladyamythyst/
A page for The Tarot Parlour (a brand new page) ~
www.facebook.com/readingswithamythystraine
An author page ~
www.facebook.com/booksbyamythystraine/
There's also a Facebook page for each one of my books, and these links can be found on my personal FB page, which is the first link. So there's five more pages there.
And then I created a FB page just for fun... The Red Lipstick Society ~

I love Facebook. It is a great way to stay in touch with friends and family and get their latest news. I also belong to groups which are very useful and therapeutic to me.

Not really a fan, but it did help to connect me with a half sister I never knew about. So it has it's uses.

I've just left Facebook as I got bored with it and it served no purpose for me.

I use FB, but my account privacy is strict. It's like anything on the internet (including Buzz50) ........don't mention it, don't talk about it, don't advertise it if you don't want it out there for all to see.

BTW have you ever googled your Buzz nickname?????

People who wonder whether the glass is half full or half empty, miss the point. The glass is refillable :)

I am not a member, nor a fan of any of the social media sites, and never will be.

Although FB has tightened security a lot, there are back doors into most sites...................

I'm not a fan of it, but I do use it. For me, its all about photography where I publish my images and give advice when asked. I have managed to contact a few people I'd lost contact over the years with and its handy for local events and some places I visit. Its the only place on the internet where I use my real name, although I will not publish anything about me on there, such as location, work etc.

I'm not exactly a fan but am in Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family - also has some groups I joined - watercolour painting, and a few specific health support groups too. Sometimes play Scrabble too.

I have been since day one. Facebook is not for everyone because it a social thing for people who are more active
than others. It is great for people who like doing things in groups. I belong to at least 10 groups and I am always
doing things with other people. If you don't like going places and meeting new people Facebook is not for you.
