I do feel like that pimply 14 year old who is new to town with no mates. Seen lots of faces of people I didn;t like back then and doubt I will now!

How do you get started? You must look like such a looser when you start as you have no friends!

My palms are sweaty!

FAQ Thu 21-Aug-08 01:40:42

you can add me grin

twinsetandpearls Thu 21-Aug-08 01:42:28

lol! I thought I would try it out as we have just moved and I have lost my address book wth contact numbers in!

How many mates do you have FAQ?

FAQ Thu 21-Aug-08 01:43:10

108 - quite a few MNers on there that I've never met, and probably never will

twinsetandpearls Thu 21-Aug-08 01:44:27

108!!! That is just showing off, I get the impression that is what everyone does. I think I need looking after. grin

nappyaddict Thu 21-Aug-08 01:44:37

you can do a contact importer thingy so it adds people that are on your msn etc rather than having to search for people you know.

FAQ Thu 21-Aug-08 01:44:44

I know/knew 38 of them in RL though

twinsetandpearls Thu 21-Aug-08 01:44:53

So what do you do with your 108 mates

FAQ Thu 21-Aug-08 01:45:39

and there's a few on there that I've agreed (and they've agreed) we will meet-up at some point

you can add me

i dont have loads

you might have my email

FAQ Thu 21-Aug-08 01:46:37

most of them I just ignore (or read their status updates) - but the ones I know in RL I do send messages to, keep up with what they're up to (I organise my babysitting via their too as 3 of my main babysitters or on my friends list grin)

twinsetandpearls Thu 21-Aug-08 01:46:50

there is a person called woosh mumsnet, that must be something to do with one of you

zippitippitoes Thu 21-Aug-08 01:47:35

ponders why woukd you want me

you could see my photos of yawn buildings as ds puts it

twinsetandpearls Thu 21-Aug-08 01:48:36

But does it not completely compromise your anonymity, I am just thinking a few of my family are on facebook but if I add mumsnetters they might think what is this musnet lark and then have a peek over here and catch me slagging them off!

zippitippitoes Thu 21-Aug-08 01:48:42

nowt to do with me mate

honestly i have an email addy from you i think

FAQ Thu 21-Aug-08 01:49:25

not really - I have my brother on there - but I've limited what he can see of my profile (so he can't see my photos or my status updates).

zippitippitoes Thu 21-Aug-08 01:51:20

well i had that thought but in fact i dont think any mns actually use my facebook

andf i said i didnt want people like my bf to have my mn id and it doesnt seem to have happened and in fact my dds are on my facebook and they clearly have no idea or interest in doing any kind of investigation to find anything out

you just close all the privacy streams

SuperBunny Thu 21-Aug-08 01:53:12

FB did this to me this afternoon when I saw photos of 3 different friends weddings and tons of photos of everyone looking happy and glamourous.

I only use FB to play boggle type games tho and to be nosey

twinsetandpearls Thu 21-Aug-08 01:55:09

I have checked zippi and don;t have an email adress for you, I recently changed my email as I got in a pickle with it.

twinsetandpearls Thu 21-Aug-08 01:57:26

huge thud from upstairs and winging am going to investigate, catch up tomorrow.

zippitippitoes Thu 21-Aug-08 02:05:08

ah i just sent an invite via an email addy of yours

twinsetandpearls Thu 21-Aug-08 02:23:18

I think I have responded, dd is asleep on top of the dog and neither of them will move.
Do not get overexcited there is nothing on my profile - my only friend grin

twinsetandpearls Thu 21-Aug-08 14:25:32

right I have now get a message from somone whose name vaguely rings a bell. He may be an axe murderer but as we live hundreds of miles from each other I should be safe!

twinsetandpearls Thu 21-Aug-08 14:27:35

Superbunny I have been being nosey although I have discovered that most of the people who I suspect have been involved in scandal are not on facebook or they have name changed.

Nappyaddict I don;t do msn either, I am so early 1990s.

Not much hope for dd she kept asking last night if she could go on haribo, I worked out this morning she meant bebo.
