I have re-activated my facebook account... and thought I would do a little pros and cons list:

- meaningful updates about my friends lives
- it is so easy to invite people to events
- special fb user discounts
- great links people share
- the funny status updates
- the thoughtful status updates
- drainer friends can be held at an arms length

- there are way to many updates related to crap i dont care about eg. i am bored.... well do something
- repetitive people... please come up with something new to post about eg. my baby is 6 weeks old.... my baby is 7 weeks old
- the downers that only have negative crap to post about, this also includes the complainers... eg. i hate work
- links and invites to spam and terrible fb apps/games/pages
- people that update every half hour
- pregnancy ultrasounds weird me out... let the baby breath before you put it on fb (ok..... i get the excitement thing and wanting so share with the world.... but really... still weird)
- what happens when someone passes away???  Forever eternal on fb??
- lots of these people are not even my 'friends'
- it wastes so much of my time
- people share way too much, you need to keep some things personal

OK... i must confess.... this post is all going towards one point..... i entered a facebook competition!  A big pro is that i can access things and information that i would never normally be exposed too.  Like this 'i love you' comp.

These are the three photos i entered... the link will take you to the facebook page where 'likes' are being used to indicate shortlisted entries...

Happy weekend dear people
