i'm going to college (gonna be a freshman) in 4 days and i'm not going to really know anyone other a few kids i went to high school with, though i probably won't see them that often. i used to have facebook for a while in high school, but i never really used it/went on, so i'm wondering if it's even worth it for college. i'm not the most outgoing person, but i think i can make enough friends without it, so i'm not really sure. i'm not really into online social stuff (other than ug of course ), so what's everyones opinion on this? should i make one or not?

also, in a few years don't you think something else will come along that's better?

its true. i find out about a lot of stuff through facebook. people just post it on there because its easier than texting or calling 30 people or whatever.

plus its a decent way to keep in touch with people you dont see very often.

private college = facebook
state college's might have more myspace users, but at least make a facebook anyway


Saying the Red Hot Chili Peppers have no talent is like saying Guy Fawkes didn't have an epic mustache.

It takes what, five minutes to make one? Even if you don't use it it's not like you're at a loss. Go for it.

i would personally use myspace, but on the campus' around here people use a facebook a lot. but if your not willing to check it numerous times a day (most of the people i know check it everytime they see a comp) then it wouldn't be as useful.

Yeah exactly.

I resisted registering there for a while when I started uni but when you're involved in various societies or whatever it's pretty much essential.

make one! you may find it can even help you make friends in real life also the only problem is if people contact you on it but you never use it, so I think it helps when it emails me if someone messages me on it.
#19
yeah, i guess i'll make one once i get to college. i don't really care about 80% of the kids that i went to high school with, but i'll mainly use it to meet new people on campus.

i bet in the time it took to make this thread, you could have made 5 accounts.

Yes because having an opinion makes him a tool.

I'd also rather use myspace, it's pretty good networking if you ignore all the crap that people use it for and do on it.

It's not worth it... MYSPACE FTW!!!!

I made a face book but I never use it, infact I made the exat same thread as this one a month ago, I guess you could make one I think it's quite useless unless you know many people who have it.
#24
Yeah it's worth it.

As a highschool student, I attend almost all of the social events I do because of hearing about it on Facebook.

My senior-to-be-freshman friends have told me that its the same way for college.

Facebook is awesome. Helps you keep up man. when you're at home bored, there might be someone on facebook?

I normally stay clear of that stuff.. But i made a bebo (i didnt even put up much info, pretty much just my name & pic) and i was contacted by an old friend and actually went down to see her this week. Would never have happened otherwise
#31
Unfortunately, a lot of people depend on it to contact others and set events, so it's probably a good idea to get one and stay in the loop.
