Yeah, I do.
It's so great for keeping in touch with friends.
I've lived all over the place, and I've managed to find all my friends from all my different countries that I lived in, it's great.
I'm even re-meeting a few this summer!

There's other sites as well like hi5 and myspace and bebo and many more not listed there. They all are socializing sites basically and all waste of time. There's also muslim versions as well like muslimspace and mymuslilmpage.com

I have facebook to keep in touch with my immediate community members only, and then i have myspace, hi5 and mymuslimpage, but i don't use hi5 anymore,too much fitnah there.

I think all of the US presidential candidates have their own facebook..... a very weird era of campaigns...:D

Malaysian politicians also have their own facebook too, but most of them are oppositions. Maybe because the oppositions have no chances to appear on national tvs and radios.... facebook is a very good place for them to express their ideas etc. And from my observations 90% of MAlaysian facebooks support the oppositions.

Maybe, it's the place we could find news/ideas from the other side. (Our tvs and radios are not neutral and pro-government)...

Thus, I really appreciate facebook.

i so had to post in this thread.. i am addicted to facebook..!!!! its the worse thing for a student... when u r studying and are trying to find anything to do but study, u will find something to do on facebook.. and before u know it, its been an hour or 2..

There's so many interesting groups on there too. Islamic ones :) but horrible ones slandering our beautiful religion :cry:. Sum1 sed they hate the applications well, u dnt have to add each one.. infact, i always refuse the request from my friends but if i want it, i come across it later through the mini-feed or browsing anyway so key is "to avoid the headache/confusion, click IGNORE now" hehe. But, add the "Causes" application. thats got to be the bestest ideaaa..woohooo

It is also the coolest thing for catching up with friends, family whom u rarely see. I found friends on there whom i knew from my childhoood (although, that wasnt long ago :D) coz we had each others' email address or we were just in each other's address book but not on msn.. its cool.. now am friends with my old college teachers tooo.. n nooo, am not a teacher's pet.. its good to keep contacts ;) hehe..

signing out..

I have it, but I put my settings in such a way that people can only see my pic and profile if I have them as a friend. I don't talk to most of the "friends" I have on there (mainly these are people from high school). It's nice to see what people are up to.

But i am sick of getting aplication invites. I even removed one person because they kept sending 2+ invites a day.... Grrrrrr!!!!!! So annoying!

But I do love my "I can haz cheeseburger" application. :)

alhamdulillah facebook is a cool thing.. personally im not addicted but i use it often as you all agree a geat way to keep in touch with friends. especially round the world rather then typing emails..
of course brothers and sisters you have to be aware of what you are doing aswell.. do not get carried away, im sure weve all been there.. ration yourselves it can get addictive but you have to be careful to where you draw the line from what is allowed and isnt.. Just a reminder peeps..

NOOR ART

^ Thats mine. so inshAllah if you like do join :D

iv also made a thread for my website and an art thread with my art in it.. khair..

just be careful inshAllah

We recieved email by brothers asking us if we can help them start of their project and give them some boost.
We told them that we would be glad to help and support project like this anytime.
Its new project and needs our help. To make it short, they like to invite all our college students at MMP to join if they feel supporting. (Nothing is wrong having our own stuff guys)

I'm like : it's ok, i'll spend 30 min on facebook then start studyin' and instead of the 30 min i end up spending 2 hours on facebook and then i have to stay up late to finish studying cuz if i don't finish everything i wanted to study i feel bad and guilty...hehe...:) :)
