    People changed a lot though, i notice. 10, 5 years ago there were down to earth folx, today only drama queens and self obsessed narcissists, whether showing of their body or their minds...It is good it offers you disconnecting on some time...

    I´m there, but never used it much - only very, very little, to obtain information from or criticize media or organizations via their FB websites etc.

    I've always enjoyed being on Facebook, and I acrtually have quite a few Facebook friends who are well known classical musicians , such as former Cleveland orchestra principal horn Rick Solis,
    conductor Alberto Hold-Garrido, who leads the Naxos recording of Verdi's Don Carlo from the Stockholm opera, and even Wagner's great grand daughter Katharina, even though she doesn't post very often .
    Others are former Chicago symphony associate principal born Gail Williams, and the female trombonist Abbey Conant, who was famously fired from her job as principal trombone of the Munich Philharmonic because of of his notorious misogyny , despite her reputation as one of the world's greatest trombonists !
    I also discuss politics and current events with many other Facebook friends . It's always stimulating !

    Yes and I love it
    My eldest is in Oz, it's a great way to communicate
    My youngest is in Edinburgh, at Uni, again a good way to keep in touch
    It's what you make of it

    I wanted nothing to do with it at first, but my son got married several years ago and they posted their wedding pictures on facebook; you had to create an account to order any. As soon as I did I was contacted by many people. I grew up in Michigan but now live in another state and it was fun hearing from most of them after having about 30 years of no contact. I then realized that fb was the best way to keep tabs on my children, niece and nephew; they tell us virtually nothing about what is going on in their lives but tell Social Media everything. My wife's many sibs are scattered around the country and we communicate a lot through fb. I haven't gotten into any political or personal spats; I save all my invective for this site

    Yes, to spread my work. Though I still employ it
    in a small way. Looking to change that. Upbringing comes in the way.

    I can't see any advantage to avoiding FB. If nothing else, I get to see all the photos of my brand new grandson in Basel, Switzerland.

    I connected to my musicologist friend through facebook (she made her own Glazunov fan page and well, who's to say I wouldn't look up such things??), and also a number of other cool friends, some of which I would never have met in real life. Plus I write my stories on facebook in the Notes section (remember that app? ). Those are the good sides of facebook, and this is why I stay there. I stick around for the best things. But the worst things, I certainly can do without.

    No, never have, never will. I try to keep my online presence to a minimum, due to privacy concerns, information sharing fiascos, and identify theft probabilities.
