I could only resist Facebook for so long. My shiny new Facebook page is here, and there’s a Sita Sings the Blues group here. Lots of photos! Go crazy, social networkers!
In sadder news, I also reluctantly registered on MySpace, the ugliest, worst-designed, least-navigable, skankiest hivemind on the ‘net, because some friends still insist on using it. Feh.

I, too, was somehow talked into signing up for MySpace. Imagine my shock when I realized you were supposed to go around asking people to please be your friend! Worse than middle school.

I stay away from both like the plague that they are.
Facebook: because it mines all sorts of personal data.
Myspace: because it is fugly.

I know those “gotta gedon the MySpace Blues” I’ve been coerced into getting my MySpace page in shape, too, and am slowly complying. Am seconding Rax, what I ‘ve heard about Facebook is not good.
Great dress and pics thereof at Berlin! See ya at Stuttgart. YouÂ´ll be a feature, as always, in my Toons & Tunes Talk-a-thon on the Saturday morning.
Nina: I just joined FaceBook so I could be one of your official online pals but really at my age I’m way too old for this kind of jive…
Somebody ought to start a GeezerFaceBook. That’s where I belong.
