    I have a question...when you sign up for FACEBOOK; does everyone see your important information...like first & last name or is that just to sign up???

    You have to be someone's "friend" to see their actual profile information (so you have to give permission by accepting someone's friend request if you want them to see your profile) but you can see the name and photo.

    ok; so then it's like MYSpace...sort of; only if you put in your whole name and other info can it be seen if you want it to.

    ok; I was thinking about signing up for Facebook, but it asked for my first & last name...I really don't want anyone knowing my full identity unless I know them very very well.
    so, could that signup page just be for the FACEBOOK administration??

    I'm really glad I started my FB acct.

    I've found people that I haven't heard from or of in years. Doing some quick catch ups.

    I have a nephew who posted a picture of me that I just hate, he didn't get the red eye out. I promptly p.m. or whatever you do there and asked him to remove it or fix it. Geezzz... makes me want to wear sunglasses from now on for family photo events.

    I noticed on our group page on Facebook there are more members than there are wall posts introducing ourselves so can people post a wall post where everyone else has who they are on here? =)

    Everybody - come play the game Scramble. Go to live games and come in to the Speed Scramble game. It is a quick game just like Boggle and lots of fun.

    Let's pick a specific room and use only that room...

    Social Lounge 5x5

    I was in speed scramble and didn't know if you all were in there!

    Okay, that's fine. I like the speed room because there is only a few seconds between games. How will we know when other AtoZ people are on?

    OK, so I joined Facebook and went to the A-Z page. Now, how do I get to the A-Z page from Home? I can't find anything that says Network. Am I doing something wrong? I am not good at this :confused:

    When you are on your home page on the right-hand side there is a box, and in small print it says groups. Go there and the groups you are in are on one side, and the groups your friends are in are on the other.

    A quick question, I've been challenged to an I.Q. test and looked into it but then will the score go out to everyone who is linked to me? What if I test out with room temp. I.Q.? That would probably be more fun than trying real hard to do well, not as much pressure??

    But there is a game called "Who Has the Biggest Brain?" which I really like!

    http://apps.facebook.com/biggestbrain/?pf_ref=p1400290328

    It's fun, but mostly because I'm the smartest, however only by a couple points, so my glory could end at any moment!!

    Don't do the IQ test, that would be embarrassing if you did badly, aside from which they are totally not accurate... like how does Barack Obama, Zac Efron and Paris Hilton all have an IQ of 125?? It always says that in those kinds of ads!!

    But yes, any time you do an application it will post on your page. For example, "Jessica found a 6-letter word in Scramble! Can you do better?"

    "Jessica is getting smarter on Who Has The Biggest Brain? 9:53am"

    Your friends will see that, but not the score unless they want to play too.
