    If you have a facebook account, are you openly gay? And if you are openly gay, do you have mostly gay friends or straight friends?

    No , not open on Facebook though I frequently reference articles or cheer gay strides on the site. Facebook is almost always checked by prospective employers and while I wouldn't take a job that made me go back into the closet, I want to deal with it face to face, not be eliminated by someone in HR which is who will check you out. HR will never say that is why your candidacy was eliminated, but all it takes is one Republican to knock you out of contention.

    Discreet 100%. I always get requests to add guys that I have talked to on here....just can't do it as I want to come out on my own terms, not over Facebook.

    Nope and never, I can do it where I am from.

    1. Put my life at risk.
    2. Pretty much isolate me from everyone I know - since pretty much the majority of my straight friends are homophobic.
    3. Really don't see the point of putting it out there anyway, its not like I am looking for someone on Facebook (although there are a lot of hot guys on it).

    Yes. And I really don't care what anyone thinks of me because I'm gay. I occasionally even post raunchy updates (Nothing XXX, though). It's 2013.. Not the year 13 or 1913. Why fucking hide it? I'm a gay and I'm loving it.

    I'm openly gay with mostly straight friends. I've got three or four gay friends. Everyone knows I'm gay in reality so there is no sense in lying of my facebook.

    No, but the pictures I've been uploading recently (nothing bad, just prode pics) says it all. I'm proud and not trying to hide it anymore. If one of my "friends" or family members has a problem with my sexuality, they can delete me.

    Error saidYes, and I have a few RJers on facebook. I don't push too many gay issues and I monitor comments for things that I feel are too sexual.


    Stop being a robot, Pedro. Be gay.. Let it all hangout! icon_lol.gif

    Error saidFor folks that haven't changed their preference on facebook, I don't recommend it, because it causes to facebook to put all kinds of ads directed at you due to your sexuality.

    It's pretty annoying!


    Yeah definitely listen to this. My feed has been blowing up with gay dating apps and cruises. Facebook thinks I'm a lonely gay shut in.

    Nope!
    Facebook is a mess when it comes to personal information, especially the intimate ones, and especially with my people; And also I'm not out.

    I was, before I had to delete my Facebook account because of a stalker from hell. Thinking about MAYBE taking the plunge again, since it's almost been a year. But yeah - out everywhere, just not flaming or preaching about it.

    Yep, another major problem, targeted ads on Facebook. Google has that one with Caribbean Cupid, find the right guy.

    I don't want that part of personal life really out there. Facebook harvest your information, which I believe can be accessed by certain individuals. Who knows, could be used against you.
