    I'm a big fan of FB (most definitely each to their own of course) but there are two hard and fast rules I live by:

    1. Never post personal stuff on there (that goes for pics too) - it ain't interesting to anyone but yourself and I don't want people knowing too much about me
    2. Never get involved in any kind of 'exchange' as it will invariably lead to unpleasantness/trolling - ignore any sh*tty comments and don't rise to the trolls

    For someone like Chuntley, it's impossible to live by those rules as she obviously gets a lot/most of her self worth from the adulation she receives online...problem with that is you have to take the rough with the smooth, i.e. if you let a lot of sycophants in, you'll also let a lot of toxic folk in too - you can't have it both ways!

    How awful! Why can't people on FB be like the people on here? This is practically the only online place where I find we can talk like friends do over a cuppa or glass of something relaxing! OK, we b!tch about QVC a bit (or a lot, depending how they are treating us!) but the tone is very, very rarely anything but good-natured between us.

    Me too Andi, I feel exactly the same.

    It is genuinely nice to hear that some of us have a positive experience of FB - in your case, probably because of your personal "rules". You probably don't use it as much as some of the more obsessive people I know. To be fair, in many cases the novelty has definitely worn off in the past couple of years and they seem to have improved their privacy settings too.

    I have facebook but I post very little on it. I sometimes shake my head at people who post their every single movement on it but I just scroll past and their posts are harmless even if somewhat boring.
    I joined facebook when my oldest son was out in Afghanistan. He was only allowed one phone card per week and it was almost impossible for him to get a signal on his mobile let alone terribly expensive too so he relied heavily on that phonecard to contact home. Of course his wife and children were first in the queue for that call but when he was back from patrols or from being out in the field and on down time in Camp Bastion they could access computers and because of the time difference I knew if there was a post on his facebook when I logged on in the morning that he was safe and well.
    Facebook saved me many a worry so for that I`ll always be glad I signed up to it.

    Now that's what you call an excellent reason to have a Facebook account! It's made me a little emotional!

    It is. Sometimes you lower the tone a bit .... but I love it! ("Oh you are awful", etc...)

    Oh I can SO identify with that !

    I've lost count of 'lunches with friends' when they start chirping away about some Facebook item, and then turn to me and say "Oh, you're not on Facebook are you". Rolling my eyes I say "nope, and I don't have a smartphone or ipad either, but look, I'm still here, still breathing and with a heartbeat too, isn't that amazing " - my friends know me, so don't take offence.

    I also carry around a small photograph album that people can actually hold, feel and look at (when the need arises), and oh the novelty of it all, - but its always produced positive comments - as opposed to being shown a series of 'flicked' images on a two inch screen !!!
