I have to say that those who I have known for forty or fifty years have the same outlook on things as we do. It is so much fun to see old friends grandchildren achieve amazing things, but no surprise, hard work and integrity are passed from generation to generation.
I can keep up with people I knew in the 1970s in Reno, Nevada; 1980s in Denver and Minneapolis; 1990s in Rohnert Park and other places in CA; 2000 in Palm Harbor , FL and elsewhere. And I can chat with celebrities in many fields. All on Facebook.

I delete friends as soon as I see something off about them but do expose myself to some risk.

I have several women friends who never use Facebook as far I know or use it very rarely.

Also, I don't have the time for social media. As it is, there are not enough hours in the day for me .

Facebook is very time consuming and you are never quite sure whom you are talking to with this social media. I got a message from one very famous female celebrity who asked me if I liked kids but I still cannot figure out if this was her or one of the people who reads her Facebook page or someone else altogether. And it is not like I am going fly off to wherever this celebrity might be filming a movie.

I find Facebook scary, so much personal information is divulged there.
And when they have a security breach, there are millions of people involved.
Supposedly Facebook (Zuckerman) is reporting the security breach as a "vulnerability".

Facebook is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family. Twitter is a quick and broad based info source. Instagram is for picture sharing. They all are useful in their own way.

Agree about Facebook as far as keeping in touch with friends I don't see often, family in other states, former co-workers, friends from high school and college. I don't accept a friend request on Facebook unless I know the person. There is a Facebook page for the suburb of Chicago I live in, kind of like a mini-TOTV. That page is a good place to get information about what is going on in my area.

There are also some Village pages on Facebook; I joined a couple of those. There are a few other Facebook pages I enjoy checking out, usually news or religious related.

Just found this out......The Villages Entertainment live broadcasts some performances at LSL. At 7:00 last night you cold go to their Facebook page and watch the Brown Bag Brass Band perform. They were very good, BTW.
