yeah if they had that feature like myspace does...

but i use it because you dont always want people to have your phone number or they dont want you to have theirs for whatever reason and there are times when you might need to communicate with them

Actually I'm using my Virgin Media connection right now lol. Wouldn't suprise me if it's them limiting me

And Facebook's brilliance for me lies in the groups you can get/make on there (no-where else can you gather support for something globaly or locally as efficently as a Facebook group!), as well as being able to leave messages and send pics and videos to your mates abroad. Your opinion though lol. I agree that most people spend far too much time on it though lol.

Lol, they do. There is the Fan thing too and probably hundreds of applications relating to bands.

but it is still not the same. i think myspace's setup is better suited for bands and things like that.

and yeah the groups are pretty amazing
facebook chat being launched during exam time is not amazing

And they're planning on getting more servers??? Seriously this is a load of BS.
Im sure they have more than that.

And they also host videos, All those comments, and everything else. Also yeah, most of the girls I know have about 1000 pics on there

the sad thing about facebook is that ppl i know who are chatting on MSN or w/e are also simultaneously posting on each others facebook..... like ***?

Plus the amount of apps you can add to your facebook page is stupid, i have like 300+ invitations for different apps/quizzes
