You are totally right, there is the telephone, and texts, and emails..but Facebook is free
Skype is deffo not for me, I cant stand to have my pic taken let alone chat face to face on cam! I also have a stutter so I prefer to write. I also
get tongue tied.
It also has the bonus of a chat system on there too. Its ok if you dont get grabbed in by it all, and spend all day watching for updates, post what
you are having for dinner, and sit playing games all day. I don't mind it myself, I have seen problems happen, people tend to rant on there about
everything and everything, and post way to much info for my liking. I don't really post much on there, I usually get a notification on my mobile when
someone has messaged me, and its got the chat feature on my mobi too, so I can just go on there when someone wants to chat. For free
I have never downloaded any of the apps, and my personal info isnt on there, neither are any personal statements..I also am not one of these people
who airs their dirty washing on there, nor do I post when the house is going to be totally empty! Which I have seen, and posted that might not be a
good idea to write...
It depends what you use it for I guess. Im not interested in an online relationship, my RL one is great, tho my OH hates Fb, Twitter and such, but it
doesnt bother him that I log onto chat to my friends, and both our families.
I also deleted quite a lot of people, mostly 40+ year old males who seem to be going thru some sort of 'I need to know I am fanciable' episode in my
life. Very strange that...but I suppose they feel they can get away with it, because they are not actually 'meeting' anyone physically. Had a few of
those over the past couple of years...bit of a shock really as I knew them years ago and wouldnt have expected it really.
It does have good and bad points, I use it for good and enjoy it when I do. I cant afford to ring my cousins in Fort Providence (from the UK) and I
cant text them, there are a few countries we still cant text from here. Its easier to have instant chat, especially as some cant/wont install MSN.
