    Has anyone else here come across facebook.com? I was introduced to it yesterday, and its very addictive. Much more informative than myspace.com

    I know there are a few banders signed up already, and quite a few good discussion groups (particularly about the superiority of the tenor horn, etc! lol)

    I'm on there as David H, feel free to search and add.

    Facebook is very addictive and very exciting for getting back in touch with people from the long, dark and distant past!

    I spend far too much of my working day on Facebook! Although having finished uni I find it's great to keep in touch with friends that I'm not seeing any more. Plus I like the fact that people are there under their real names so no guessing who's who! Add me if you want - Sarah Lewis.

    I got roped in too (thanks Kelly) though not sure I'll be spending much time on it. Much more interesting things to do (no offence meant). :p

    I'd never thought of searching for instrument related groups. How many American groups are there devoted to the American baritone?!! I think I might set one up for second baritone players of the world to unite...

    I've been on facebook for a while... It's odd, I was thinking only the other day that I'd not been/ posted on tMP for ages, partly due to shortage of time and checking my facebook and bebo profiles instead. Can't say I'm a massive facebook fan, not because of anything inherent to it, but because of the sort of folk its dredged up from my past!

    In my experiences (emphasis on that), the different sites attract different sorts of people. I can actually tell (albeit in a general way) what sort of a person someone is from whether they use facebook, bebo, faceparty, myspace or something else! I know that sounds like a huge stereotype, but its uncanny!

    See my blog on jamodgery.bebo.com for explanations as to why, if you're at all interested! I tend to prefer bebo for the reasons explained therein, so facebooking tends to be a fleeting glance so I can keep up with how the other half live!

    Anyway, must stop now before I end up writing another dissertaion on the moulding of personality through facebook!

    I've succumbed! It really is quite addictive, although i'm not sure I like the big brother implications - Has Tony Blair joined?

    oh, Garry Hallas! Feel free to add me. . .
