    I wonder how many parents of teenagers are in a panic right now?

    Eh, for me, its too late for me to create a family profile and a gay friends profile.

    "Why didn't you 'like' my gay pride costume picture?"

    Well...

    I seriously doubt I'm going to make use of this feature... One of the things I like about facebook is the fact all of my friends are together in one place.... I have friends from Kindergarden thru College, theater friends, church friends, gay friends, clients and family members all in the same spot... and I don't hide a damn thing from any of them! It's funny, I just went to my 30 year class reunion, and I had more people come up to me to say how much they love reading my fb page.... they never comment on it, but apparently they love reading about what I've been up to... LOL It's a funny world we live in...

    The good ones aren't panicking at all, because they have the FB password as a condition of the child being able to use the computer or have a phone. True, a kid can update stuff from other people's houses, etc., but it would be a royal PITA. And yes, the kid could create a new account, but a savvy parent would catch that too by looking at the kid's friends' friend lists, which are unfortunately not lock-downable.

    All it takes is paying attention, which many parents don't do these days. icon_neutral.gif

    Trollileo saidGoogle+ did it first and now Facebook is trying to defend its position as the number one social networking site. I'm just glad I left Facebook. Social networking sites piss me off.


    And RJ is.... ?

    But yup, definitely a blatant rip off of google+'s main "circles" theme.
