« The last mercenaries (Book review#2) | Main | I'll have another shot of design please »



Your points are well made. These social networking things are positively raining upon me from the sky (or wherever they come from). I decided to be completely mercenary and turn all of them into promotional materials for my freelance business writing.

I got lured onto/into Facebook by a real-world friend who sent me an invitation. I accepted. Then I clicked here and there and (I think this is what happened) Facebook started going through my e-mail address book and sending invitations to EVERYBODY in it.

So, I may have unknowingly been one of the people who asked you to be my friend. I am not unhappy to have been ignored. If Facebook does anything else on my behalf without my knowledge, feel free to ignore that, too.

STRANGELY, in the first two days after being sucked into Facebook, it brought me two new clients -- out of the blue.

So, I'm just using Facebook as a free, online sales brochure.

Hey Max,

I get more into Facebook as the weeks go by. Yesterday I was writing an article on virtual worlds, posted that to my status on Facebook and got two messages with ideas I could use. Good stuff.



Could not agree more, Max.
Having to face the same plague on a daily basis. If anything, it makes me doubt the quality of my own friends.

DJ Boba Fett

I propose an electronic Jihad against this evil fascistic dictatorship run by a child. Please read my blog at www.myspace.com/djbobafett to see my running trials and tribulations with this site. At this point, they up and cancelled me, with over 200 hours of work on my site, pages, events, profiles and advertisements. They are billing my card even though I no longer have an account. I called the Palo Alto offices at 650-543-4800 to dispute the bill (as it's ads for a deleted site they're billing me for) and had to call 3 times before a human picked up. I talked to a female Sam (supposedly the only Sam that works there, yeah right) and she said they do NOT offer voice billing support. i told her that by refusing to work with me, she is okaying my choice to dispute the charges with my credit card company. We'll see. If you have ANY problems with the site or infrastructure, please call them, ask to talk to SAM, and tell them "DJ Boba Fett sent you."
