I know what you mean, I am not sure I see the point either :roll:

I think it must be a generational thing.

I have not been on it. Valuable lotus time!

I have heard a few funny stories about clever younger folk skipping work due to faked illness and their employer going on and finding them telling all their mates that they have bunked off work for a laugh etc. Wheeled in the next morning by the boss.

Also people leaving their screen open and alll sort of stuff being put on when their back is turned. Seems a delight for being set up if you use it at work and your works mates know.

Mike :D Old fart type. I like to hammer things in the garage and get in trouble with the wife!

I have been encouraged to join Facebook with the comment the "all the cool kids are there". Neither of those descriptors apply to me so I'll stay with lotuselan.net and Ed's Morris Dancers.

John,

As you were so keen on me joining you on Facebook, I now have to assume we're no longer "friends".

I did say that apart from the photo I could not see the point of it.
