Been asked to look a couple of old mates up on facebook. So for the first time ever I went to the site and signed up.

No problem there. But when I try to do a search it brings back a whole load of people from every blumming country and town but the one I want!!!

When I type in my old school name it comes up no matches found!! WTF? Of course there are people on the site from my old school!!!

I type in my town name, again no matches found!! I type in my mates name, Stephen Thompson from Ferryhill but still no joy, I get plenty of Stephen Thompsons but not the one I want.

What a heap of junk site this is!!

Unless I am doing something wrong of course, but for an experienced computer user this is proving to be a pain the backside, I am close to giving up!!

Maybe I'm getting on a little LOL but don't people value privacy any more?

Isn't putting your whole life on a web page a security risk?

Aren't these networking sites aimed at kids anyyway?

The only people I know using them are 17 year olds.

Most of my staff who range from 18-50yrs of age use some type of social networking site or blog. I dont think this is just a young persons phenomena.

I got to agree with Digi...its a pain, I had to join as my mate who lives at the other end of the country from me basically organised his stag weekend using facebook. I ended up installing a couple of greasemonkey scripts so at least most of the [email protected] is now gone lol....i am a "bore" apparently lol. Get the flash blocker/ad blocker ect installed and it becomes slightly more tolerable.
