Along the same lines as Myspace but a little more user friendly, I think. Try Facebook
if you haven't already done so.
Look for Jim Brannigan if you want to invite me as a friend.
I could be wrong but I think those on Dial Up may find this easier since there isn't any music playing.

At Jim's suggestion, I joined Facebook. Although their stuff loads faster because it doesn't have all the "bells and whistles" of some of the other sites, I don't find their links to perform certain actions to be very understandable.

I'm not crazy either about the network it automatically put me in since it picked one for me based on my location apparently. So I went back in and joined some other groups with people more in line with my interests. Joined the Ian Tyson fans group and the Acoustic Guitar Players group.

After I have a chance to cruise around the site a bit, I might change my opinion of it or be better able to understand it.

Just thought I'd comment.

Refreshing this - there are a few of us who have been having fun on Facebook lately. There is even a Mudcat Cafe group on there. Look for Jenny O'Reilly, or PM me and I'll give you my email addy so you can be my Friend.

I'd especially like Friends who want to join Pirates on Facebook. I need a few more Friends to bomb ;-)

Yes, I did the same. Sort of figured you might be the one with the guitar, but who knows?

I have yet to be 'bitten' by the Facebook bug. Don't much see the point. And I keep loosing stuff. One 'friend' sent me some quiz I was supposed to to, it disappeared, and no clues on how to find it again. Joined a few groups which seem pretty moribund, and generally feel pretty geriatric.

Having more fun with flickr at present. Pity the two couldn't combine.

Vectis, NOBODY is dead boring! I've sent you a PM.

I actually find Facebook really good for family stuff too. So far I have 6 family members on there - my son, his partner, my daughter, my brother in law, my niece and my ex-husband!

I have trouble using the Friend finder. I think the easiest way for 'Catters to find each other on Facebook would be to join the 'Mudcat Cafe' group. I keep checking it often for new faces.

us morris lot have been facebooking our pants off this year!

it is a truly great way to find out about gigs, (spiers and boden have a group, as do the demon barbers, glorystrokes, oh there's too many to mention!), and it's also a great way to keep in contact with people you know who are scattered about in between festivals!

I have added videos of morris stuff and pictures of various festivals to my page, and they have been very well recieved!

other groups on the site worth a mention...

i've got a tankard and i'm proud of it!
i'm a morris dancer, get over it
bellowhead
shepley folk festival
broadstairs folk week
sidmouth folk week
mawkin....

oh the possibilities are endless!

it's just a great little way of keeping in touch with everyone!

enjoy! x

Seaking - yes, not a good idea. My god-daughter and her sister are my friends on Facebook. I'd hesitate to tell her mother of the sorts of things they seem to get up to. Add to that the fact that one of the girls got promoted at work, posted an exultant message to that effect... then I phoned my friend and asked about it, only to find that she knew nothing at all!! That evening subtle questioning eventually led to the reply "I thought Irene would have told you!" ... a slightly mad and topsy turvey way for the news to filter through to family!!!

However, I have found that some of my younger friends (much younger) have no qualms about having an old fuddy duddy amongst their lists !!

And Sandra - while I agree that phoning and actual meeting rather than virtual contact is always preferable, it's not always physically possible. Facebook IS a good way of maintaining contact with people that you may only see in person once a year or so, and would probably not necessarily want on your phone list. It has its advantages.

You're right Sandra, I am!

No one has said why Facebook is preferable to or any better than just e-mailing people you want to contact?

I also chat to my Mum and sister on Yahoo Messenger.

Like you Chris, I don#t know what we're all supposed to do now we're there. Though you didn't answer my message on there. Not much different from e-mail then eh?

well, I had a look, & still can't see any need for it. Seems like a few of you are not quite sure why you are there either.

Each link here was to an immediate log in, nuffin' about what we were logging into (Rule no. 1 of life, don't sign anything without reading it thoroughly & maybe getting a legal person to look, too)

So I found it's home page & About (right down the bottom of the screen), took the site tour & did not sign on.

Too each their own, but then I don't use Mudcat chat, either. Good ol'fashioned e-mails & PMs for me. And calls & visits to those nearby!

My son is in college, and he likes Facebook better than My Space.
He and his freinds can set up pages for their film school projects they are working on, or just stay in touch with what is happening with each other. It is an easy site to use for keeping in touch. He has loads of friends and is very involved with school and music, so I can see how handy it is for him.

MySpace really seems to have a different purpose. It is good if you are a performer and want to put your songs on there, but apparently there are different categories in MySpace and if you are a performer you have to join as a performer. Not sure how - I didn't know about that till later. It seems to be used by a lot of people as a dating site, or people send you elaborate e-cards of the 'have a beautiful day' variety. I'm not really getting into MySpace I'm afraid.

On the other hand, I am having a lot of fun with Facebook. It's very silly in lots of ways, but I like that. There are 20 'catters who have joined the 'Mudcat Cafe' group so far. It's useful for finding each other, seeing what we look like, and getting to know each other better.

Sorta like the thing I felt I missed out on in High School. I was a shy little thing then (things change ;-)) I was aware that some of my friends in school saw each other outside of school on the weekend and I wasn't included (probably because my mother was teaching there). I did feel left out though.

I imagine the 'Mudcat Cafe' group would also be useful for putting up photos relating to Mudcat, although nobody has done that yet. I intend to, some time in the near future.

Myspace will pass as an acceptable homepage if you want it to.
I joined Facebook in case it would become a useful networking tool but so far, that's not the case. I keep up with the kids but I'll have to hop on a Qantas to have a coffee with Sandra.
A word of caution to professionals or those seeking employment; Employers are now using both of these sites to screen prospective employees.

I've never talked so much to my kids since I joined Facebooks. I think they go to "chat" to their mates and realise that "the folks" still exist. I have had one or two sarcastic comments such as "mother, how can keep one's street cred, with you around?", but it was they who invited me, so...

Join, it's good fun and bit by bit, friends of years ago are starting to creep out of the woodwork. I reccomend it, wholeheartedly
