I joined Facebook

In my last post I asked what the point of Facebook was, so I decided to sign up and I found it surprising easy to use. Firstly it can connect to your Hotmail (or other) address books and check to see if any of your mates are already on, which I thought was pretty neat (although I did accidently invite one person that I shouldn’t of!).

Once you’ve done that I set up a simple profile, I quite like the design they’ve used, much better than some myspace pages i’ve seen as most people create some stunning ugly profiles (i’m never ever going to join myspace).

The whole thing is a bit like linkedin, bits of google calendar, yahoo groups, twitter (you can add your twitter noise to your profile page) and it has some flickr like aspects as well.

On the whole I like it, if you’re a social nutter like me then I reckon you might even find it useful, which is strange for the more recent buzz sites that have been popping up lately.
