oh, wow, i couldn't imagine writing something like that in the first place unless i was being completely mocking and insincere.

it's one of the things i dislike most about facebook too, though :/
I had to laugh. I would rather not open myself up to people I knew thirty years ago, much less risk what poor Tracy had to endure. I mean, I'm pretty much an open book here, but a lot changes in thirty years. People from back then are curious about me, I know. But I dropped off of the map on purpose. I don't want a thirty year mortgage, I'm happy to be bilingual, and I would be miserable living over there.

I just want to be happy and raise my kids to be happy. But poor Tracy!
one would hope you wouldn't be thanking a man for being mounting by such a strong, powerful man ;)
I don't even want to know what that means ;)

It's like, "Take me, Spartan warrior! Mount me, you strong and powerful gladiator!"

Don't people have fun in the sack anymore? You would think that poor Tracy would have been happy to say, "Hey, Mike, I had a great time the other night! Let's do that again soon!"

But no, There's mounting, and strong and powerful stuff going on. Sounds like a lot of pressure to me ;)
Sounds like a lot of pressure to me, too.

And 'you are permanently invited-to-the-love-cave-between-my-legs'?

Holy Scary Visual, Bat Girl!

Ha! Yeah, I wondered about that too. And again, the pressure of "permanent".

But it did not escape me that the option of "Poke Tracy" is prominently displayed as one of the options on Facebook, so I reckon that maybe Tracy is just asking for it?
FWIW, her account was compromised (by 4chan of course) and that update is fake. It happened to several other facebook users as well. Which doesn't make it particularly less funny!

That said, I'm on facebook - and I update there more frequently, but they are small tiny updates, and this is a recent change. I vastly prefer lj, but it feels as though everyone has left it, and that keeping in touch with people (my friends are spread ridiculously far and wide) now requires the use of facebook. I think this sucks. I am also looking into yet again setting up a wordpress blog on one of the way too many domains I own. We'll see.

Poor Tracy.

It occurred to me that the screenshot could have undergone much Photoshopping, but since I am intimately unfamiliar with Facebook, I wouldn't know any better. There is no doubt, though, that this sort of thing has happened before.

I have been on LJ pretty much since the beginning, so I'll keep this. I mirror most entries to a blogspot account so my parents, who stress over the fact that I never email them, can keep up with my shenanigans here in Mexico. I have a twitter account, but only because publishers demand that sort of thing (me, in 140 characters or less? Please.).

I'll have to get a Facebook account when I get a book deal. I loathe it. The people I left behind thirty years ago deserve to be left behind, for the most part. The one's I still care to communicate with enjoy giving my email address out to anyone and everyone who asks for it. I never know what to say to them.

"Hey, there, Carl, hope the acne cleared up."

Or maybe, "Hello, Theresa, I used to fantasize about your large breasts!"

I mean, really, what do you say to people you never really knew? And then come the questions about Mexico, and it gets complicated. Some people have the skills to juggle all of it, I don't have the skill nor the patience, I guess. I really hope that they all have swell lives, but I am guessing that there isn't enough money between all of them to buy enough insight to understand why I find this place so appealing. The people I have met online in the past ten years, oddly enough, seem to get it. It encourages me as a human being.

I don't want to go back to what was. I want to do something completely different, and I want to do something else completely different after that. You know?
I have a facebook because I feel like I have to - and I hate it for all of the reasons you listed above.

Also, hello! saltdawg sent me over and I'm not sure whether or not I ever officially de-lurked.
You can always just not add the people from 30 years ago, or leave access to your profile very limited... or ven limit what certain groups see (à la LJ filtered groups). I have no interest in people in high school knowing all of my contact information (not since the person in charge of our reunion got my number and has called me 20 times to catch up... I didn't like you then, I don't like you now).
This is true, but I keep reading stories about people that get bent out of shape over not being added. It sounds like so much more drama. I know I'll have to get one at some point, but I don't look forward to it.
but it feels as though everyone has left it

Does, doesn't it? Did that happen when the Russians bought the company or is it just part of the rising and falling empires of Cyberlandia?
I totally LUV Facebook but that's because I'm so bad at keeping up w/friends. I don't let people I know read LJ. Well -- I mean I couldn't stop them from reading it if they wanted to I suppose but keeping a journal has always been my secret vice even before I kept one online and most of the people I interact with in what (always laughingly) can be called "real life" don't know I keep one.

FB is for friends; LJ is for messages in bottles.
Some of my angst will go away after the impending 30 year high school class reunion that I will be sure not to attend. I didn't enjoy high school. I know I'll have to get a Facebook, but I'm putting it off for as long as I can. It works great for some people, maybe not so great for others.

Deleted comment

It's a similar thing with twitter - except they are only permitted a maximum of 140 characters to embarrass themselves.
i've been having these ISSUES with facebook lately. so much so that i had to delete half the people on LJ and facebook out of desperation to get my life back.

i was curious about people i knew ten years ago, but then it got so out of ocntrol that i felt like i was being overwhelmed with a look into person's life who i didn't even know, not to mention the invasion i felt by people i hardly knew having a glimpse at my life.

That's what I'll want to avoid when I eventually will have to get one, but it won't be easy. I'm going to try and keep it as simple as I can.

hahaha still awesome though.

I was wondering why you had decided on going on twitter (i read the reply above) :) It surprised me, but I get it now.

Like someone else mentioned above, I keep my "real" life out of LJ (except for my bf, since this is where we met). But pretty much everyone I know, have known, or will know (haha) is on FB. I like it for what it is, but some people do get fanatical with who adds whom, and why hasn't s/he added me back etc And oh the apps are stupid (though I do like some of the celebrity "frases del dia" that they've come up with).
Yep, it was a hack job.

Lot's of people enjoy Facebook, but I know what's coming for me when I get one. I dread it.

There is some funny stuff on Twitter. "Shitmydadsays" never fails to crack me up.
I LOOOVE shitmydadsays, too. Super super funny.

I think if I were in your place I wouldn't go on FB either, I understand what you mean. I'm lazy, socially, so I feel like I put the minimum effort in "catching up" and keeping in touch with people I may or may not really care to know about haha. But it can get pretty funny.

Also, I re-read my above comment and (although probably unnecessary, I'm OCD like that) I wanted to clarify a bit. I think it came across as "LJ people are to remain virtual", but that's not the case; actually, I'm super open to meeting new people, I just would prefer people I already know (and have known for many years) not to find out about it, hehe. I was trying to do the same with twitter but my best friend and my cousin (in my usericon in the other comment) found it and follow me now, so my updates aren't as intense as they used to be, bleh.
David I will be going by the Dandy before the grito (the shout itself is at ten pm) and will be in Dandy at five or six oclock then go to the palace gardens around seven or eight or nine
My wife convinced me to try it out. Lost of folks fond me and it wasn't as bad as I thought.
That being said, I've nothing to talk to them about.
