I think most people on NL are above or below college age, or just not in college, and Facebook is very much made for college students to keep in contact with each other. I think the only people who "can't stand" Facebook are missing the point. It's not myspace. It's a way to keep in touch with people after you all graduate high school and go off to college. But then they opened it up to everyone, and well...I don't know what those people are doing on Facebook, really.

I don't think so. I think that Facebook is just MySpace with a fresh coat of paint. My father, who is in his forties, uses Facebook. It's all silly networking. Whatever happened to a telephone, or e-mails?

For starts, there are people I'll communicate with on Facebook who I don't want to call or email.

Second, if I want to disseminate a bit of information simultaneously to a multitude of people, Facebook is going to do that for me much easier, and much cheaper than a phone call will. Facebook also helps me avoid maintaining a huge contact list.

I'm by no means saying that a Facebook account is necessary, just that it could possibly help Nintendo Life gain a few more members and increase their internet presence. Heck, if the company that makes my racquetball and tennis racquets can have a Facebook page, why not Nintendo Life?

No, grenworthshero is correct. Also, you just kind of proved what he was saying...except instead of limiting it to college, you are saying it includes older people who find old friends and family that they haven't seen in years. Before Facebook became so popular, it really was a way for people to connect with others. Even if you just want to keep in contact, it works like a charm. Although, now I must admit there are too many layers on it now and it's just annoying to use,

My dad used it to talk to twenty-year olds, not family. I honestly don't think Facebook has any real purpose, especially with MySpace out there. Seems redundant, is all.

That's the point; It isn't Myspace. That's why it doesn't suck

My point was that Facebook and MySpace are the same thing, not that they were different.

Well, I can't help you there. Obviously you have a bad opinion of it because your dad is on it, which can get annoying, but I've already explained what Facebook is all about. Myspace is for Twilight-obsessed 8th graders

I think that Facebook and MySpace are the exact same thing, that's my honest opinion. It's got nothing to do with my dad.

Ok, that's how you see it. Now that you've had your say, amscray.

It's a suggestion for the Nintendo Life staff, not for you.

I'm 29 using FB and I think that 90% of the time people use it for all the wrong reasons. Use your phones or even e-mail people.... you know... like 10 years ago... btw, I don't want to know what you just ate and how it tasted.... and don't even mention twitter please.

I think you'll find quite a lot of the staff use Facebook. I suspect that having a Facebook page for the site would be even more work than simply maintaining what's here so don't expect it (if anyone would do it I think it would be Dazza).

We don't have a Facebook page because, y'know, we've got a whopping great website. By all means, follow Panda's suggestion and make a page telling everyone how great Nintendo Life is. I'd join.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.
