Gina's on both Facebook and MySpace. She grew up in Utica and Poughkeepsie, went to college in Tampa and lived there for a while after and then moved here to Long Island. She uses them to keep in touch with her friends near and far. I do recall her getting involved in all sorts of "battles" and "games" through the sites a couple years ago, but I haven't heard her talking about that much anymore.
She got me to sign up for Facebook a long time ago. I checked it out and it seemed like a better way to upload photos for webhosting images, but I've never used it. I linked it to an email account I keep for sign-ups to things that I don't want to receive emails from, and every few months when I have to clean it out, I see all the friend requests, etc. sitting there.
It's a little annoying when your friends do use those sites to post pictures to share, and then send you a link to it, but you can't see them without being a member. So when I have to do something on there, I just use G's accounts. But using it to look at photos is slow as **** too. I'd rather people email me the pics to look at. Learn to use Powerpoint, it's a lot easier and faster!
I don't need the additional drama and BS from those sites. Not when i get it all right here already on the soap opera that is Noreast. I think now that Gina's been sucked in to being a part of the site here too, she's not as active on Facebook and Myspace anymore either.
