I like facebook. It lets me see pictures of Roger's kitties and weird looking bugs... I get to put some faces to names on Chordie... and share some of my music with people who didn't know they were interested. I've gotten quite a few customers that were former classmates all because I connected with them on facebook (hadn't seen them in 15 years, yet they came to me to have their hair done just because). I keep a business facebook page for my husband's Tattoo Shop and he's gotten a LOT of customers because of facebook (and retained a lot... as it's easy to update when he'll be closed on there as he tends to forget to put a note on his door several days in advance).
The bonus of course is things like the Muppets! Plus, it's replaced all those horrid annoying emails everyone used to send me (I don't want to read through 50 forwarded jokes just to get to the email from my bank - although my mom isn't on facebook yet so she still sends them). With facebook, I can just read what I want if/when I want. Lately, I haven't been on there tooooo much because I'm working full time now. It's still nice to check things out when I've got some time though.
As for Deadstring's first comment about the church goers with more faith in horoscopes than the bible... I agree, and actually appreciate that facebook has allowed me to know which ones of those church goers I don't want to bother having a religious discussion with. My cup is half full!
Art and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.
