Do you guys have a facebook account? I've one and the amount of details I get about my kids is amazing..photos of them during orientation, sports events etc. I know who their friends are too!

So far, I've managed to connect with siblings, ils, nephews/nieces..even friends from my school days. It's amazing that friends you havent heard from for years are now just a click away.

:rahrah: Yes I do.

In fact, I love FB. Through FB, I managed to reconnect with my primary school classmates, secondary classmates that we've not met for 20 years and due to FB, we had a gathering last year) and not forgetting old pals and colleagues.

Though you don't "keep in touch" regularly, through FB, you get to know where they are and what's happening in their life now. So it's great.

Yes, i do.
But i do not like to share any personal information on it.
My account is just to check on my kids and their friends and activites on it, ie keep watch on them.
My kids know that and they don't upload my pictures with them on it
I also tweet on tweeter, mainly follow tweets on topics i am interested in.

To a certain it's true that it might not be advisable to post too much information about yourself eg. photos on it as it is a new tool that headhunters use to size up candidate.

But on the other hand, I personally feel that it's not "fun" if you don't provide much information. I feel that so long as you provide "sensible" information that has nothing to hide type, I am comfortable with that. In my FB, I post pictures of the kids, our house, our trip, visit to USS,etc.... I see it as a resource to help me keep photos too. Friends and relatives can view the photos and know what's going on in our life. THose are nothing to hide type.

On the other hand, I am against putting too much personal views on FB. Eg. my boss sucks. I hate my job.... Such remarks are not advisable especially if the headhunters were to see it.

My boss and my colleagues are also my FB friends so yes, i am careful with what I communicate. I am also careful with my friends selection. I only accept friends that I know and not any Tom, Dick or Harry.

I also have a FB a/c. Recently I met up with some old colleagues for lunch. When we were about to say bye bye, we said "see you guys on FB" instead. I found it quite amusing 8)

Pardon my kaypo-ness, MMM :wink:

May I suggest, that you 'seek' tankee's help :wink: :wink:

He has become our resident official/unofficial 'avatar seeker' :wink: :wink: :wink:

Just tell him your 'requirements' and he will try his best to fulfill your wish. You can make your way to KSP forum avatar thread then, if you decide to take this up :D
