Honestly, has any Facebook users noticed the incline in older people signing up?
First it started off with my best friend's Aunt (and they are close family friends, I've known my best friend literally since I was born, and her aunt is a co-worker to my parent's, and her mom used to be too), then my Godmother (co-worker), then a family friend to me and my best friend's family (who's wife is a co-worker of my parents), and now, MY GRANDMOTHER (whom was a co-worker too, lmao).

But has anyone else expierenced this?
I honestly think Facebook is going to outgrow Myspace, by a long shot.
I'm friends with a massive assortment of friends, from friends in Japan to my own Grandmother.

I was a bit shady about adding my Grandma at first, I didn't want her seeing some of the things I wrote. But now I just tone it down and actually I don't care if she sees. It's me and that's all that's important. I think it's cute she's adding all these people we are all connected with. It's truly mind blowing.

I haven't experienced it... mainly because I don't use Facebook at all, and barely use Myspace as it is. I don't have to worry about it, really.

Yeah, when my parents told me they were making theirs, I gave them some bullshit excuse not to add me. Kind of happy I did; there's no way I want them keeping track of what I write. One of my grandparents made one, but he never checks it, so I don't worry about it anyways.


Hey beautiful people, you're better off trying to e-mail me than message me on here.

This is one of the reasons why I refuse to sign up to Facebook. It would be socially inconvienent (more so than not having an account) to tell some people I would not want to add them as friends and I already wear a normal suit in real life. Well, sorta.

I'm not about to do that on the internet. Ho-Oh no!

I've discovered that social networking with the elderly creates a whole host of problems, outweighing the life experience and velour sweaters initially brought to the table.

Not only there is a increase of membership of elderly, other age groups are switching from MySpace to Facebook. People I've talk to say it's much easier to use.

Me? I'm sticking with MySpace. They are all the same to me.

Actually, some of my aunts and uncles in the US added me on FB awhile ago. Met them last night and they said "oh, I know how you're doing. I check your FB."

Suddenly, I started to worry about what I wrote there in the past...

And then you suddendly lose your biggest conversation topic when meeting relatives: "So, what have you been up to lately? Doing well in school / work / whatever?"

That too. Luckily there was one of them who wasn't on FB and that I hadn't seen in about 8 years.
