I’ve Been Facebook’d

Rick Beckman's Facebook profile After hav­ing tried and great­ly dis­liked MySpace, I am pleased that not all social net­works suck. As of yes­ter­day, I am a hap­py mem­ber of Face­book, and you’re wel­come to check out my pro­file.

As far as I can tell, there is no way for users to cus­tomize the style of their pro­file, which I think is great — most of what I saw on MySpace was retina-burning.

Also, there appears to be no way for users to include music and videos on their pro­file, set to auto-play for no appar­ent rea­son. I despise web­sites with video and sound which play auto­mat­i­cal­ly, unless that is specif­i­cal­ly what I’m view­ing the page for, such as on YouTube.

Addi­tion­al­ly, I know more peo­ple on Face­book than I did on MySpace, but then again I did­n’t spend much time search­ing there!

Any­way, I’m lik­ing Face­book this far and am enjoy­ing find­ing quite a few famil­iar faces which I haven’t seen since high school!

I have my pro­file set up so that it imports my blog entries from Rick Beck­man as well. If you add me as a friend on there, you should be able to then eas­i­ly keep up to date with my lat­est writ­ings here. Great, huh? But don’t let that scare you off from adding me!

Oh, and be sure to like and share my page, Sec­u­lar Now!
