just heard on the news that the monitoring agency announced that just under a million former facebook members did not log in onto the site during the last six months. and the majority of users / members are between 17 and 23 years old !

I am on FB and do not go on there for long periods of time. I get frigging emails telling me that I have not been on FB for the last 30 days. Yeah! So frigging what?????? I think FB (initials) should be Zuckers new initials.. Cmon guys, work it out...
Thinking about closing the crap off !!!!

Sorry......but I is a Facebook addict  :-)     BUT as far as O'mund is concerned this IS the forum. I do post on and off on the FB O'mund site but nothing serious. (Can't help myself) ....... What happened  here I don't know but I don't think FB is killing it. I still love comming here.... browsing through our history.....and catching up on the present. I suppose there are only so many memories us old timers can post and going forward can only be what those that are still in O'mund can give us......which is read but perhaps not commented on. I'm here to stay.......    drinking-41

Just had a look at face book , seems that for some .. or actually  the majority of people between 16 and 25 y of age  , it is OK to talk to a wall. for me ! Posting my intimate info for the world to see ? no chance. Mr. Mike Voden  between us , we know that certain things are just not meant for the front page

Howzit! Please note that I have still not gone onto FB since I deleted my account. I don't miss it at all BUT I have missed Oranjemundonline and I apologise for being so slack in visiting. My wife is an avid FBer. Sis!
