I tried. I really did try. I tried to stay away from facebook and myspace. But I could not. I do have to say though I am talking to people that I was friends with in the past and lost touch with. So as I was not trying to join the borg collective I got sucked in. Facebook really isn't that bad its easy to use and I am talking to people I knew from grammar school, High School, College, and various jobs I worked. Its great being able to catch up with people I haven't seen in years too....I just wish I thought of it 1st.
