Ok I'm sorry! I said I wouldn't get involved but one day this week I had some time (a rare commodity!) and I wondered what all the fuss was about. Well being the nosey person I am, I had a look. Though and behold a few hours later I'm all up and running as a fully fledged member and have photos posted and everything!!! I already see the benefits as I've connected to people I haven't seen in years - always nice to do at our time of life!
I'm not shouting it from the hill tops - I'm just quietly whispering 'Facebook rocks!' (for now!)
