Now all the boys and girls are frolicking on Facebook, the new social networking tool that's taken the tweens-to-twenty-somethings by storm. The Long Winters, always known for being on the cutting edge of technology (*cough*), are now represented on Facebook with the Long Winters fanatic group. I think we should all join, spread the word, and make it a center for pictures, stories, and other such social-like-business. Although secondary to the Salon, of course. What do ya'll say?

Just for consistency's sake:

'Twas already a group:

But two Long Winters groups never hurt anybody.

Oh, sad. I wonder if it'll survive.

Much less retarded.

Many fewer error messages. (read: none.)

Way better functionality.

Facebook > (MySpace x 10)

I joined both. I use Facebook alot more than MySpace, and Facebook was around longer than MySpace as well.

Seems you're right. It's nice that you can see someone's profile only if they add you as a friend. Takes away all the attention-whoring and spamming.
By the way, "zach has 642 friends"... did you just add your whole high school or are you simply insanely popular?? :)

Wow. I had no idea it was anything close to that. I only added the people I didn't DISLIKE from high school on facebook, but rarely turned away other people's requests, regardless of my like-level of them. I was also highly involved in stuff in college and met a lot of people there. And I've worked in several different places with high numbers of young-ish people.

All the same, I wonder how many people I could list the names of (off the top of my head)?

Oh okay. My schools gave back exactly zero returns, my e-mail addresses... six people. Aaand that's my whole facebook-friend repertoire for the moment. How sad is that. Seems that site never got really popular outside the US and Britain. But Peter Buck has a facebook account, too, so it's definitely cool in my book nonetheless.
