I just created a FB page about a week ago. My mom kept talking about it and telling me I had to get on so I could keep up with my cousins and nieces and nephews and so on. I have a cousin in New Zealand, and when they had that earthquake, that was how the rest of the family was checking up on her, so that was what finally dragged me into it. But really, my family isn't all that active on there except for my mom and her old high school girlfriends. And very few of my real life friends are there at all. It was kind of a letdown.

I have an incognito fb page with every security setting on max - I didn't want it but I was tired of being harassed by my cousin to see her pics. I spy on 4 friends maybe once every 6 weeks.

Frankly all those status updates about having eaten a muffin just irritate me. No one's life is that interesting that I need a play by play breakdown.
Forget farmville, I'll keep growing real veggies in my garden :-)

Caloriestory, does this service have anything to do with Calorie King ? What is that former members of CK can provide that the rest of the Spark People can't ?? Are you a former member of CK or do you do software development for them ? if so, why not tell us more about yourself and your facebook project so that we aren't suspicious of your motives.

Otherwise, why should we check out this page ? How does it relate to us here if this is for Calorie King ?

Hi JCKKLS,

Sorry about that; didn't realise that my post would offend. In my defence, it really is a genuine call for feedback of a free service that's in development and I thought this group in particular would be interested.

Well, in case you weren't spending enough time on Facebook already; here's something new you can try :D

CalorieStory is a Food Diary that runs as a Facebook app.

You'll find it at:

apps.facebook.com/caloriestory (You'll need a Facebook login if you don't have one already)

The app's still in Beta, but we'd love your feedback; and I figure who better than ex-CalorieKing users now on SparkPeople to give us feedback on a good food diary.

Let us know what you guys think!

Thanks!

The games must be cool, if the number of posts I used to see on my newsfeed from friends playing them was any indication! I literally don't have the time or I suppose I would be playing them too. The only reason I am even on FB as much as I am is because I have it on my iphone so sometimes when I am bored I will check it on there.

I wish I had time to sit and play games!

Staci, one of my co-workers at the gym wanted me to get on Facebook just so I could play Parking Wars with him! I hear the games are pretty cool. Which is another reason I'm trying to stay away from Facebook. I love games !

). I've played the games but now I just keep up with my family. friends, and fave places there. Which translates into..I probably spend more time then I should in it.

I am on FB, sometimes it seems to be the only way to stay in touch with out of town relatives.

I just finally allowed my daughter to get on FB, so now I am monitoring her as well. She just started high school and had been begging me to let her get on FB for over a year, so I finally succumbed.

The key to keeping your time on it manageable is to NOT play any of the games. Oh my goodness they can be a time sucker! I don't play any of the games, and I "hide" all the games being played by others so they don't clutter my newsfeed.

I use Facebook and I probably spend way too much time on the site!

It's great for me because it helps me keep up with my friends when I'm out of town or when they're out of town. Also, I enjoy reading about groups that I've "liked", NPR, NRDC, etc.

Do you use a social networking site like Facebook or Myspace ? If so, how often do you visit or stay on ?

There's a thread in the exercise forum that says,"Facebook made me fat" LOL !! The OP says that spending too much time on Facebook was interfering with her exercise time.

So, how much time do you spend on social networking sites ? Do you use them ?

I kinda set up a Facebook page, but honestly I haven't really used it. I didn't even use my real name. I set it up with a cyber name. I did it because another friend wanted to send me a link that was only on Facebook. I haven't used it since. I don't even have a Myspace page.

Do you know the social networking site I spend the most time on is ??? Spark People ! LOL !! Seriously, I spend more time here than any other place. I try to log in every day. I do love my perfect attendance awards. LOL !!

So, how about you folks ??? Let's get some conversation going on here. It's been too quiet.
