Subject: Facebook....finding the musicians
From: Lizzie Cornish 1
Date: 02 Sep 08 - 08:43 AM

I know there've been other threads on Facebook, but I'm a real dingbat at locating them on here.

Well, I joined this morning..but I can't seem to find where all you musicians are!

Someone sent me Show of Hands, Seth, Miranda Sykes, Isambarde and I found Noah Zacharin myself...but where is everyone else????   

Is it that most musicians prefer Myspace?

Good heavens! Are you *sure* Greg? (cross eyed smiley) I'll certainly watch out for anyone trying that on with me, that's for certain! LOL


I've got Barry Hunt too (hello Barry!)...and just now...Ron Olesko!

This is getting to be quite fun! :0)

And...I have a music player too, so I can choose loads of different tracks to put on there..only just got it started though, but I've got Show of Hands, Noah and Reg Meuross songs up there so far..and..Reg has 'The Poacher' on there, which is the one he played with Martin Carthy the other day at Sidmouth...and wrote too. Excellent folk song.

I have to go and have a natter with him...and leave you guys in peace..

Do you know, we 'bumped' into Joolz and Carol at Show of Hands Big Gig III at the Royal Albert Hall last year...didn't know they were going...and suddenly I hear this magical Brummie accent calling out my name..and there they both were!

I am finding Facebook a bit complicated. I have a regular profile,
a music profile, and an iLike profile. I am not sure how to meld them into one and the same, maybe that can't be done.

Still, there I am on Facebook and I'd really appreciate it if you could become a "fan".

Facebook - I can't really see any benefit to joining it. I did join and found that the world and his wife and people I hardly know now want to be my friend. Then you get bombarded with them telling you and the world what they are doing. Too much information.

It's success is that there are a lot of bored people out there who don't have many "real" friends.

I disagree !!---Karen (Wild Flying Dove ) and I have loads of friends in both the "real world" and the "folk world" ( same thing, if you ask me !),and yet we both enjoy being on "Facebook",and have made many new friends through it ( for example, "Jenny O", from Oz, who we are hoping to meet in person later this month !). Both of us gave up the childish bits like "poking", or "throwing a sheep/pig/cactus/dwarf" at someone ages ago, and you always get to see who it is who might want to become your "friend" ( including a photo of them ) before inviting them (if you wish) to do so-----in any case, they are not just random people, but rather friends of other, existing,Facebook Friends of yours / ones anyway, so probably share similar interests; that's the whole point !!! We love it !!

Try looking at various groups to which your friends belong. There is Mudcat Cafe, Friends of Folk Music, Sidmouth, Off The Tracks, Nic Jones ...... all manner of things.

I'd have entirely the opposite viewpoint, Bob ... I love Facebook, have been having heaps of fun on it and have been bored with MySpace for ages now. On the other hand I haven't yet mastered putting music up on Facebook, so Facebook is more about friendships for me and MySpace is more about professional stuff.
If you've found the Mudcat group, Lizzie, you should have found me too. There are lots of us around.
Me, I don't poke people (usually) but I've had some great games of Scrabulous and other word games and enjoy doing jigsaws ...
And anyone who'd like to become one of my fans would be most welcome, too. At the moment it's a small but select group!

Thanks, Bob, request sent...and yes, I'm struggling with Facebook, a bit too. I don't find it nearly so 'musician friendly' as Myspace. Way too fussy..and you don't seem to have any options in how to build/design your page. But I'll keep at it a little longer. And I miss not being able to have music playing, the moment people find your page..even though I've got a music player.

Hi Anne...haven't had time to look too 'deep inside' the Mudcat Cafe yet, but I'll get there, and certainly come a-knocking at your door when I find you, I like your music very much.

Hi Lizzie
I'm on facebook too. Lizzie, you've got quite a set up on MySpace, facebook should be a breeze for you. I could use a few lessons from you.

Anne, I tried to friend you on MySpace & couldn't get past your "whatever it is filter", it's easier on facebook but I'm not to active on either, MySpace, to me, seems more fit for music

Answer: yes!

I think the clientelle are growing in number at a significantly higher rate than the site is able to handle.

Sometimes my modem disconnects!

This only happens when I'm on facebook, and usually when I'm using the Facebook IM facility.

Just for the record..I've left Facebook. I couldn't do with it's controlling format, no music playing on pages that are closed to all, apart from 'friends'...together with more adverts than Myspace and things that didn't work.

It doesn't fit with my brain pattern..and I think my BP went off the monitor on many an occasion..so now...I'm free of Facebook, apart from emails which tell me that people are still leaving messages on my 'Wall' even though it's not there????

But I'm not going to worry...breathe...breathe..

So apologies to all, and please don't think I'm ignoring you, I'm simply not there..(no jokes now..) ;0)

I hate Face Book. Every time I go on it there's something new to complicate things even more. And people keep sending me things like a 'green patch' I don't like it at all.

The only thing that is interesting but doesn't work very well is the instant messenger.

Myspace is much better, less complicated and it's instant messenger is very good too.

There, said it now!

I have facebook and through made contact with loads of old work mates. With the green patch stuff and all the other stupid applications you have the option to ignore them. I have loads of applications that I just don't bother with.
Going to start looking for mudcat and other folk stuff on there now though

It's also possible to tell Facebook to ignore (or reject) ALL games, applications, etc.

For me the bigger problem with the games & Facebook apps (e.g., "gifts," ad-hoc FB "groups) is that if you allow those, you give FaceBook access to all your personal information.
Ignore those or block them and things get a lot simpler.

One thing that can be an issue on Facebook is that many of us use screen names here at Mudcat and other online sites but FB wants to know your real name.

{You can give them your real name and then choose a different user name, but only if you have text messaging on your mobile phone (I don't) and want to give that phone # to Facebook (I don't).]

For now, I'm using a business name, GenieSinger, on Facebook, mainly because so many people I "know" here at Mudcat and other places online would not recognize me by my real name.   But that makes for its own problems -- e.g., my own brother rejected my FB friend request because he didn't know who I was. LOL

I can vouch that Genie Singer is a safe friend, and exactly what it says on the can.

Facebook, however, is far from leakproof when it comes to your personal details, and slow to react when somebody uses your identity to establish a fake profile.

The first protective action to be taken is, IMHO, to reject all apps. They hand over your privacy, not just to Facebook, but to others using the same apps, not all of whom are your friends.

BE WARNED!

Facebook membership requires extreme caution. Remember, the fact that you haven't yet been targetted means simply that you haven't upset anyoneYET!

I know what I'm talking about. I (in common with several others) upset the BNP.

Well, my brother finally accepted my FB invitation.   (It took a bit of email correspondence in addition to FB messages, but it's finally done. Problem originally was that when I put in my "friend request" I happened to have a profile pic of me in clown makeup, so he didn't recognize me.)   LOL

But in the last few days it appears I have been "unfriended" by a couple of guys whose names and faces I don't recognize and whose names I didn't find in a cursory search of the FB friends of other Mudcatters or my friends and family.   I don't know that there's any thing underhanded going on here -- I may have accepted on of the "friend suggestions that FaceBook apparently sends when it notices that you have friends in common with other FB users, and the guys may have "unfriended" me when they realized we neither know each other nor have much in common. Who knows? -- but it does make me wonder if there may be some sort of subterfuge going on.

I don't do the "apps" at all, and I've stopped "joining" any "groups" that I don't know to exist outside of FaceBook.   As Don says, too many people can get access to your information via FB if you're not careful.
