Am I getting old in the tooth (the only one left now).... what's facebook?
social networking site where content is more important than pissing around with old fashioned html to make the form more important.

It was started at Harvard and propagated through the Ivy League schools in the US so gained a certain cachet over the user base. It was opened up to all earlier this year.

Problem with this group it is linked to friends who are civvies who may take a look. Then we have links to other groups alongside on the homepage

I'm in or have been in the Royal Navy an I'm jack as ****!!!

Probably a WALT!!!

So what message is being put across to the civvy population that a lack of grammar is evident. Do try to keep the messages clean on there please think who you are representing.

As my wife is an active member of facebook I cannot join because as soon as I go to the home page it switches to her account. She tried to add me as a friend which has the same result, even different e mail addresses do not help as Facebook picks up the PC's ID

Get her to log out each time she's finished. There are a couple of causes for this, either the browser is set up to log in automagically, or the cookie forces it.

You can use the same machine for different accounts.

I'm in full agreement. Facebook and Myspace tend to be split by social class divisions. Hence bebo and myspace is riddled with chavs whereas facebook hasn't got to that stage yet. But it will undoubtedly...

Anyway, I know for sure that I'd start to feel a bit ridiculous if I was using social network websites in my late 40's/early 50's when the vast majority of the users are in their teens or mid 20's.

That looks like a cue for a new, niche market networking thingy... the Sagabook perhaps, for the bold and wise?

I've created a Facebook account as it seems to be the chosen domain for the ELITE....

It won't let me enter a searchable email address as it doesn't support .Mac
Aw shucks!
