Well, since my last comment, I have got up to speed on Facebook. I have a William Marshal page there too. I don't spend a lot of time there - five minutes a day, but it's useful to pop in and out of. Obviously as a writer, it helps me to connect with readers and other writers too.

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

I'm not a big fan of Facebook, I don't wanna know what they might do with all information they get thropugh quizzes, photos etc. Only reason I still have it is to keep up to date with old, old friends. Will not join, are happy here.

Hi. Just to say that I joined the Facebook world at the weekend. I finally gave in! It still looks a bit confusing but I'll figure it all out shortly, I'm sure.

I found our HFO group there and have joined up, so you should see me there as probably the most recent joiner.

I won't give my full name here but, as you know, my first name is Justin, so if you want to pop by and say hello and/or 'friend' me or however it works - please feel free to do so!!

Me too - I just use it as another type of email, as I've found a couple of old schoolfriends/workmates on there, but I don't post my life on it! Already not happy that a load of old holiday pics are on there for all to see (luckily they're not too embarrassing apart from 80s haircuts and clothes!). I don't think people realise quite how much info is put on there, albeit often quite innocently.
