I finally bit the bullet and created an account.

I've been patient as my employers advised against it for anyone working in a
frontline childcare team, and to wait quite a long time after you left, so
it will be three years on 31 October. Should be OK now ;-)

OMG, it looks very complicated and I might need some guidance here, folks.
I probably need a few people to friend me.

I couldn't find any of my previous colleagues (not surprising) and although
my aunt is on facebook and I sent a friend request, she might not know how
to - that seems to have generated all sorts of suggestions of "people you
might know." most of which I don't.

I am sure I will get the hang of it with a bit of help.
BTW, this does not mean I won't be posting as usual to rspca. Fortunately
or unfortunately, YVMV g
I've wanted to join Facebook for years and I know it might have seemed I was
totally against it, I wasn't.

I've "friended you", and yes it will take a bit of getting used to. But
I think you'll like it, eventually. We can control who posts unlike
here, which is nice. Just don't expect to learn it all in one day and
you'll be fine

Better you than me!

I AM "totally against it"! It may be different in the UK, but in the
U.S. I've read too many horror stories about identity theft. Never mind
the loss of privacy involved in posting personal info where literally
ANYONE can read it!)

That's why I don't like Facebook. Just because I know one person
doesn't mean I know everyone they know. The email notifications I
finally got turned off. Then they changed the program and I started
getting them again. I gave up. Good Luck!

There are some people I know, from rspca years ago so should I try to friend
them?

I'd give it a try. They have the option of refusing your friend request, so
unless the possibility of someone doing that would hurt your feelings, you
don't have anything to lose.

I can't advise you about that. Some people like the application and are
more comfortable there. I'm not ready to abandon Usenet yet.
Especially not since FB made it so darn difficult to unsubscribe.

Precisely the reason I don't participate in any moderated groups. I
don't need a "net nanny". It's easy enough to block offensive posts or
posters. If anyone thinks they can moderate my comments or what posts I
read, they are sadly mistaken. NOPE.

We can control who posts unlike
here, which is nice. Just don't expect to learn it all in one day and
you'll be fine

"Control" being the operative word. Sorry, but I don't deal with
moderated forums. BTDT. The moderator invariably turned out to be a
petty tyrant. A control freak.

I'm not sure what the point is. Congratulations on figuring out your
real name! j/k Mine is, and always has been, Jill McQuown.

Hi Tweed,

When you go into your Facebook account, you'll see a friend request from me. The profile pic is of my nurse cat, Lilith, and I use my real name (signed below).

Sincerely,
Debby Hanoka
