How come I only see some peoples status message and not all? What decides which ones will be visible?
I just notice someone mentioned something about there status saying something the other day and only one person responded to what it said. Well I never did see that persons status message. So is there a way I can see certain ones?

I seem to be getting adds right in the middle of the privacy page that I can't click off? Any idea how I do that? I do have a pop up blocker but that obviously isn't working.

if the adds are from facebook, that is how they are making their money, so i doubt you can turn them off. Something about you agreeing to them when you signed up LOL

Yes ok but they are right in the middle of the freaking whole page so I can't see anything. Therefor I can not change my settings because I can't see what settings I'm changing or what I'm changing them to.
YOu would think these adds would be at the top of the page or bottom but not where they block all the information.

If you use Firefox, install Greasemonkey https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748

This will allow you to add and run user scripts. There are many user scripts for Facebook. This is one that will remove ads...

Some people change their status daily, so they may not have one listed at the moment you are checking them out.

And, I use explorer and have no ads on there.

Yes actually I was talking about yours. But even just now I went and checked out Susy Q's page and noticed her status and it's not on my page either. So I'm not sure why I sometimes see them and then sometimes don't.

Ok but on my facebook "home" page I always have 3 or 4 peoples status on the right hand side. Why is it there are only 3 or 4 peoples and not them all. Sometimes the 3 or 4 people change. Who decides what 3 or 4 statuses to put on there. Do you know what I mean?

lynys
11-07-2007, 09:22 PM
They are just randomly done. Mine changes each time I log in. I see a different friends change.

I'm gonna dig this thread up because I have a question. I had a friend request tonight from someone I don't know simply because they had the same last name as me. My last name isn't very common, so these people must think they are related to me somehow and want to expand their "lineage". I ignored the request. Does that make me a tool? How many here would add a stranger who shared your last name?

I wouldn't. I even turn down people I do know. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol.gif

I added a co-worker a while ago. He pissed me off, so I deleted him. He still doesn't know. My new rule...don't add co-workers.

The sad truth of it is that this person looked more normal than most people on my friends list now. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

i delete people all the time... heck, i even put them on a block list.

if you really think the person doesn't know you removed them, i think you might be mistaken. you tell me one person that doesn't know when they are off a list! lol.

as far as normal on a friends list.... the only people i have on my list are family.. and real friends. people that inspire me to do better... be better... and that is what i want. i have very few people on my list... only in the 30s.... i dont need to have hundreds of people on it... just ones that i truly have a connection with.

i love my facebook friends... lol.

I agree, I had a few people I don't know add me, I don't accept, but I don't have an unusual name, so they may have me mixed up with someone else. As far as deleting someone, they know, don't add someone you don't want on, but honestly, if you are aquaintances, its rude to add them and then delete them.

i like the fact that i can reconnect with family on there - it's a good way for my kids to know who their cousins are and who aren't especially as they grow up and start to enter the dating world. (which unfortunately, is sooner than i could ever be ready for)

its good for advertising events - especially when u have a group created.

but the majority of the peeps on my list are family - a few friends, a few acquaintances and very few coworkers.

OIC, You see sometimes if you put people that arent your friends but people that you know from the net and eventually meet and they end up your friends it proves that us INTERNET people are not heethens,lol.....

I have delete a few from my list and I am sure they know by now. I am also very selective on who I add. I currently only have two people that I have chatted with on the net on my friends list.

Have u figured out the status updates? You can change it in your privacy so that certain people can't see your status.

Thats just the thing I don't want all kind of weirdo cookies ...I talk to one person and for that I prefer Skype. MSN and Yahoo are for the teens and people who think they need to collect so called "friends" on those.

AngelOnHigh
11-16-2007, 01:11 AM
see, thats just the thing... i am not a collector of friends... i know some that think they are only worth as many people that are on their "list"... i just have good true people on my list... and that is it. i do not use myspace... i think that is a joke. but i am loving facebook! lol

The reason I prefer Skype is because you can talk in voice instead of typing.

I love facebook and use it all the time.
I add everyone and see what they are like and if i don't get along or for whatever reason i delete them.
Since they now have blogtv as a feature and it is something i used before, its even better
