Does your RealJock world mix with your Facebook world?

    I just got asked from a RealJock friend here to become "friends" on Facebook.

    Up to this point I never considered mixing the two together.

    On Facebook I have family, work and friends from grade school on up.

    On RealJock...well, I have met great guys here but.....never really thought about adding on to Facebook.


    What do you think? Do RealJock and Facebook play well together?

    I had Facebook and Myspace before joining Real Jock. I never knew that there was a real jock group on either and apparantly the one on myspace was stopped when the one on Facebook was started. I,personally don't see the point of Facebook, really. You can't really blog, which is what I like to do and most of the people who request for me to add them, never bother to chat or email after that. So, I deleted my Facebook page and kept my Myspace page.

    Sure. Actually, the more RJ friends I 'import' to my 'real-er' social network on Facebook, the less time I spend on RJ.

    yeah sorta, I have the people I enjoy the most on facebook, not all of them mind you, still trying to get a few others but its a slow dance icon_razz.gif

    I'm very slow about adding people, unless I've talked to them on MSN/aim, or in some sort of chat, I get a better idea of someone in a flowing conversation then in a forum..

    I don't blog on facebook, but I use twitter which updates my status on facebook with my tweets, RJ people (a few in particular) tend to comment, or I comment on there status updates and so on and so on..

    But its also nice having them there to contact ouside of this place, I'll occasionally talk to lilz (zdrew) and I flirt with them all hehehe

    it's all good..

    And we've had some fun conversations now and again, too, Tankie (especially fun when we scare the straighties LOL)....and it keeps us from clogging the forums here with our random shenanigans. icon_wink.gif

    Having written a booklet on Facebook privacy for the local schools I kind of still follow my own advice on being judicious with whom I bring to Facebook. That said I would totally add someone from RJ I had come to trust via other means of communication.

    I guess the real elephant in the room is "how out is one with the family and friends there". In my case, I have big chunks of extended family I just haven't have the occasion to come out to. I am ambivalent about "casual coming outs" but I guess that with the size of my extended family is bound to happen that way with many of them anyway.

    I'll confess that currently my Facebook page is a kind of don't ask don't tell zone, and interestingly in my group of gay friends there is such unwritten rule that Facebook pages are DADT zones... now that I actually wrote that it just doesn't feel right anymore icon_neutral.gif

    It is my goal to, step by step, unify my worlds, but it hasn't happened yet either because I'm comfortable the way the current situation is or perhaps because it hasn't reached a critical mass.

    I have that exact rule too...

    But guess one of these days I might run afoul of it and then use it as pretext to meet somone (for Facebook rules compliance only of course icon_biggrin.gif)

    That is an interesting rule one that I think I will adopt!

    I will add one additional rule....

    If I've met you in real life then I CAN'T be friends with you on RealJock
