By Cat on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 11:07 am:

WOW! A friend of mine emailed me and asked if I had a facebook account because he doesn't use his myspace much (I have a myspace to keep track of my kid's myspace accounts--I keep track of my nephew for my sil, too). So I created an account and I've gotten emails from about a dozen people I went to high school with already! It's crazy! I haven't talked to these people for over 19 years. One girl I didn't even recognize. We were REALLY good friends, too. She'd gotten divorced and remarried so I didn't recognize the last name. I just think it's really wild that all these people are finding me after all these years.

By Mrsheidi on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 11:18 am:

isn't it fun? i love facebook...

By Dawnk777 on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 11:30 am:

Yeah, I just had a friend find me, on Facebook, that I'd been email buddies with for a while, but then she left the group. She invited me to a group on Facebook: "Why do you look so tired? Ohh, you must be a nurse!" She's a nurse, too.

Emily belongs to this group: Those were nice jeans... until I brought them to camp.

This past summer at horse camp, she fell off a horse and got a hole in one of her pairs of jeans. (She was fine, tough.)

Oh, and another one related to camp: Hoofbeat should be a boarding school. (Hoofbeat Ridge is the camp she went to.)

By Tayjar on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 11:39 am:

I just started doing facebook. I still need to get the look and feel of my site done.

By Reds9298 on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 11:39 am:

I really like facebook, too. I've been able to contact a lot of old friends also!

By Annie2 on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 11:49 am:

I never realized sites like face book or my space were so popular. Maybe I'll have my kids set up a site for me :)

By Joy~bundles on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 01:26 pm:

I can't believe how many people I've made contact with since joining Facebook just last month!! I'm having so much fun!! It's neat to see where everyone's lives have taken them since we all graduated. :)

By Marcia on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 01:41 pm:

I am so completely addicted to facebook! It's a great way to share info and pics with people. I have connected with many people from my youth, but use it more to stay in touch with people I know now.

By Crystal915 on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 02:01 pm:

I've found or been found by so many people on both Facebook and Myspace... gotta love the internet.

By Bellajoe on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 02:38 pm:

I signed up last night and I'm think I'm already addicted. I've found friends that I knew were on there and other's who I have not seen or heard from in years! It's so cool.

I'm still sort of figuring it out though.

By Brandy on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 03:16 pm:

everyone add me = ) Brandy M

By Brandy on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 03:17 pm:

ps i think i have the picture up right now of my three (husband and two boys) for the profile pic = )

By Dawnk777 on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 05:29 pm:

Brandy, searching for Brandy M yielded 467 results! Could you be a little more specific?

Email me, if you want to:

d-klein at charter dot net

Wait. I think I might have found it. Are they wearing karate outfits?

By Missymelissy on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 09:05 pm:

I'm on FB also, I love it. :)

Let me know if you want to be added.

By Brandy on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 09:57 pm:

you found me = ) and sorry i didn't realize it had that many results one time when eve was trying to find me all i had to do was put that in and i was the first one lol = )

By Bellajoe on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 10:03 pm:

I don't mean to be lame but on FB do you just sort of add friends and go around and look at other peoples pages and comment?

Is there more to it than that?

By Marcia on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 11:03 pm:

When I first joined, I spent lots of time checking out the sites of all of my friends. Now I chat with a few people, play games with some, check out pics that are posted, and post tons of my own. I spent way too much time on it for the first few weeks, but I think everyone does that while getting used to it.

By Kernkate on Monday, November 17, 2008 - 11:21 pm:

I am addicted to Myspace, I have a Facebook account...guess I should start using it more.

By Tayjar on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 07:14 am:

I'm on there. I added DawnK and Brandy already and I think I just asked Marcia.

By Mom2three1968 on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 07:36 am:

I just recently joined facebook as well, and so far it has been loads of fun! I have found a few old classmates, and friends from where we've been stationed during dh's time in the Marines.

By Dana on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 08:09 am:

I had to go and join after all the talk. I was up til almost 3AM after joining. "THANKS, Cat" said in a very sleepy tired voice. :)

By Melanie on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 09:51 am:

I am hooked on Facebook! It's been fun reconnecting with old friends. :)

By Kernkate on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 10:10 am:

I have Brandy on mine, if anyone wants to add me its Kathy K

By Trina~moderator on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 10:34 am:

I'm there as well. My Dad (76) joined recently. It's fun to keep in touch with family and friends.

By Missbookworm on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 11:08 am:

I'm there as well :)

By Annie2 on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 11:26 am:

I just joined. How do I add a photo? I put in my maiden name...now what?

By Ilovetom on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 11:30 am:

He he! Me too. I already have a friend from high school. I didn't add in my maiden name though- can you change it? Or is what's done is done?

By Dawnk777 on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 11:53 am:

Kathy, there are 500 results! I wonder if I should add in my maiden name, too. Try searching for Dawn Klein. When I searched mine was on top. I'm wearing a green sweatshirt. (It's a 10yo picture, but we won't tell anyone, will we?

By Annie2 on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 11:59 am:

I just got an email from a classmate from fourth grade!
Okay, I want to add you guys to mine and vice versa....how does that work...Oh, and I also loaded a pic of myself!

By Ilovetom on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 12:06 pm:

Annie- go to profile- at the top beside home then go down to the part under your name and click photos beside info- then create new photo album- your picture or whatever- then the create button - then I used the simple uploader. That should do it. Upload which pictures you want.

I am Pat Bryant- Montgomery AL.

By Annie2 on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 12:32 pm:

Ok, I think I was able to add Dawn to my list. Going back in! LOL

By Tayjar on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 12:35 pm:

If you want to add me I am d or a p a y ne. I am also a friend of Dawn's and Brandy's so you can find me that way. I will be adding more pics this week sometime.

By Annie2 on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 12:43 pm:

High five to me! Pat I just added you to my list of friends. :)

By Ilovetom on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 12:48 pm:

Yay! So fun to put a face to a name! You are so cute.

By Annie2 on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 01:02 pm:

Thanks Pat. :)

By Bellajoe on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 01:49 pm:

be my friend too!

P a t t ik u h a r f r a te

I put my maiden name as my middle name so people from way back can find me too. :)

I will look you guys up too.

By Cat on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 02:25 pm:

I'm getting quite a list of friends! lol Some of you have found me already. If you put in cathy b r o c k (no spaces, except between the names) it'll bring me up. That's my maiden name and I should be the first one listed (married last name starts with an M).

By Ilovetom on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 03:29 pm:

Cat? LOL- I accidentally hit the ignore button- I was so excited to have a new friend!

I am now asking you to be my friend.

By Reds9298 on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 05:24 pm:

Does anyone know how you change your name once you've already had an account? I didn't originally add my maiden name, didn't even think about it, but would like to now. I can't figure out how to change it though!

By Cat on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 05:34 pm:

After you log in go to Settings, then name. I had to add my maiden name, too.

By Reds9298 on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 07:46 pm:

Thanks Cat!

By Marcia on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 09:50 pm:

I'm on Dawn, Brandy and Dora's lists, if anyone wants to add me. :)

I added my maiden name from the beginning. It's amazing how many old friends you'll find with it. Unless they know your married name, they won't be able to find you without your maiden name.

By Missymelissy on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - 10:11 pm:

I have my maiden name my nickname and my married name

"Melissa Missy Oberle Hopkins"

By Brandy on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 07:25 am:

i changed mine last night so it's Brandy my maiden name and my married last name = )so it goes Brandy M M but with other letters in there lol = )

By Kernkate on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 07:34 am:

Dawn I got yours, anyone else wants to add me I changed the name to K a t h y M u r p h, when I checked mine it came up first. My 3 kids are in the pic.

By Dawnk777 on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 10:27 am:

Kathy, I got it now! You showed up on my page, as "someone I might know!"

I did the search and went through 25 pages, and it never showed me a Kathy Murph. I don't know why. All I got was every Kathy Murphy, that ever signed up for facebook. So, you were a Kathy Murphy? I know a Kathy Murphy locally. I work with her!

By Annie2 on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 04:44 pm:

How do I change the caption next to my pic? Does everyone have that saying..."what are you doing right now?"
TIA

By Dawnk777 on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 05:02 pm:

just start typing. Then click enter.

By Crystal915 on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 06:21 pm:

Well, I was offline for a couple days, and came back to a few adds. Mine is Crystal and my last name is the German ruler... starts with a K.

By Cat on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 06:43 pm:

Listed if Ft Wayne, Crystal?

By Crystal915 on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 06:49 pm:

No, It should be listed as Royal Palm Beach now, or Junction City, KS. I'm in the WPB group and the Alorica group.

By Crystal915 on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 06:50 pm:

Network, not groups... I'm in a ton of groups, LOL. IDK if this works for looking up profiles, but here's a link

By Missbookworm on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 07:20 pm:

You're on mine too Marcia! :P

I'm going in to see how mny of you I can find :)

By Missbookworm on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 07:29 pm:

*sigh* I'm not having any luck!! LOL

How you all finding each other?

If ya all want to add me search C a t h e r i n R e y no spaces of course :)

By Reds9298 on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 08:49 pm:

How do I add the section with my favorite web pages? I see a "Pages" section listed at the end of some friend's Info section. How do I make one of those? I look around but don't see that option.

By Dawnk777 on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 09:20 pm:

This is the name I find, when I type in your name, Catherin!

Graciela Catherin Colmenares Collazo from Venezuela

D a w n K l e i n

or

D a w n H u p e

There was a place I could type in a former name. The second one is my maiden name.

By Dawnk777 on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 09:21 pm:

Never mind, Catherin. You just found me! LOL!

By Missbookworm on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 09:28 pm:

woohoo!! :)

LOL! That's soooooo funny that you find that person...OK I found Dawn through Marcia's account..then I did a search with my email and found reds, Kathy and Crystal...so I'm getting there :)

Cat I found you because I matched your profile pic with your facebook pic!

Annie I don't know your maiden name...I can't find you :(

*wonders who she is missing...posts and goes back up the list

By Dawnk777 on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 10:27 pm:

Catherin, I sent a message to Annie, that you might be someone she knows.

By Cat on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 10:50 pm:

Catherin, I didn't get a friend request from you and I can't find you. Try again?

By Marcia on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 11:24 pm:

Just click on some of the people you have, and search their friends to find others you know.

By Kernkate on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 11:55 pm:

Yes Dawn I am a Kathy M u r p h y :) But I did put Kathy Murph in....and it showed it when I searched....weird. We will all get the hang of this :)

By Missbookworm on Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 12:47 am:

I thought I'd found you and I was wrong Cat lol!

I'm going to have to try again...

By Dawnk777 on Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 12:58 am:

Cat, I sent you a message about someone you might know. I think it shows up on the left side. That will help you find Catherin.

By Missbookworm on Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 01:00 am:

butterfly 774 at gmail . com

Cat can you email me from the addy you use for facebook..that should help me find you :)

By Cat on Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 07:51 am:

By Kaye on Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 08:59 am:
