I'm 40 and a friend suggested I should get onto Facebook. I think its a place for HS/College Kids. Do you use Facebook, how often and how old are you?

I use facebook, but then again I would fit in the high school/college range of users. I personally prefer facebook over myspace. Myspace seems to have too much spam, but facebook is quickly turning that way as well

I am 25, and have used facebook for years. Recently, many of my aunts and uncles have joined facebook. My dad recently joined facebook. If I was say, 16, I might think it strange to be friends with my dad on facebook. But, there are many people in there 40's and up joining facebook.

i like it because now that it has been about 7 years since high school, it is fun to see who got super hot and who just let themselves go and has like 3 kids now which is fine but i am often surprised by the results.

plus facebook allowed me to view a crush of mine from freshmen year. we had some good times together in her hot tub but never really anything more than that even though i wanted it. i was not a man back then, i did not know how to take what i wanted. bottomline is she got breast implants and is now perfect (judging by her pics on facebook)! and word is she wants to see me (through the grapevine). see, those seeds you sew do come to fruition eventually.

I am 22 and have a Facebook and check it probably three times a week on average. While its interesting to hear what's going on with high school classmates of 5 years back, I rarely use it as a means of direct communication with anyone. And to be honest, most people on there haven't seemed to have changed that much since High School yet.

Facebook is for 20yrs+
High Schoolers use myspace, and some 20+

but facebook is not used by a lot of high schoolers because its to easy.. myspace you have to be a computer genious to make your profile hot!

im 27 and im sadly horrible at computers... I had a facebook, but i was never on enough and ppl added me from HS a lot and it wasnt ppl i wanted to get in touch with hahaa.

and i have a job and 1 kid and another on the way and facebook is the last thig on my mind right now at this hig point of my life hah.

i consider facebook a "mature" myspace. i'm about your age and am on it about once a day. it's a great way to keep in touch with friends and family. however, not too many ppl I know are on it. my younger friends and family have a lot more "friends" than I do, simply because younger people are more apt to have an account. i keep trying to recruit my friends ....

I'm 31 and use it to keep in touch with friends. When you and all of your friends move out of your home area, it's nice to be able to check on their status and see what they're up to on a day to day basis. I have a myspace page as well, but only check it to see if I have any new friend invites. I like the status updates on facebook, it makes it more interactive!

Myspace is better, way better by far.. Myspace is also larger, with far more members.
I can honestly say i dont know anyone with a facebook account..
Facebook is like... well i dont know the wanna-be myspace..

If this was a myspace poll you would see the difference!
