facebook for christmas
« on: December 12, 2013, 04:40:12 PM »
Just wondering how many ppl here have a Facebook for Christmas? Maybe we can post all of our Facebook links somewhere here on the site like lsp does or other sites.

I do.  It's cheaper and easier than making an actual website, IMHO.  Plus people can "interact" with it by liking or checking in.

I spend so much time on Christmas forums I don't have time for facebook which seems to be the biggest time waster in the history of mankind based on how much time I hear about friends and relatives spending on it.

I am not a big Facebook guy either. But I will say I think for families it keeps people up to date with what is going on. Now people have information daily that they would only get in Christmas cards or family events. Everything else may be a waste of time. But who am I to talk. I am on Christmas sites way too much too.

I had a heavy FB user tell me I spent too much time reading Lighting and Christmas Forums. It's just a waste of time to them. I feel the same way about anyone who watches Duck Dynasty or Long Island Medium or HoneyBooBoo on TV.

The Duck Dynasty show hits too close to home since I lived in Monroe, La for awhile and graduated from La Tech Univ.

I have a facebook page for my light show in addition to the web page.  I found that is was a better place to store the photos and videos for my show and to use as a very limited blog to keep people informed as to what date the show would start.  My web site doesn't get much updating except for the list of local displays each year.

I also have set up a Facebook page for the local lighting user group.  We get together once or twice each year formally.  Its more simple than doing mass mailings to keep the local light gurus informed.

I agree that it's a great storage bucket for photos and videos.  Unfortunately, it's how the younger generation shares information.  It is what it is.

If I had better cell reception at work, I'd like the pages I haven't already!

I may break down and join just for the lsp users group, but nice to find like minded here on FC.  I think I spend more time reading the forums then I do sequencing!
