Roadfood Facebookers and Twitterers? Tue, 11/17/09 4:54 PM (permalink)

      Hi,
      Come on over to the Roadfood Facebook page, if you haven't already, and post your query there, too. And invite your friends to join Roadfood's page! : )

                  I'm Davydd on Twitter and I am David Stovall on Facebook with a Facebook address of: http://www.facebook.com/Davydd  Pretty simple no? I'm fairly active on Facebook. I even created a group for pursuing pork tenderloin sandwiches: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=39165973462

                      IndyRick,

                      Ah, you're the "All tenderloins, all the time" blog. If you'll check the Facebook group page you will see I have had you linked for quite some time there.

                      I make an annual trip to the Indy 500 and sometimes the Brickyard 400 and load up on tenderloins then.

                        I can't see the purpose of putting everything interesting (probably more uninteresting) about your life for the world to see.
                        if you want friends, go outside & meet people.
                        I've met a lot of nice people on this website that I see regurlaly.

                          From what I know of MH, although he might be curmudgeonly he doesn't really care how others decide to communicate. You probably don't either, but that's not quite what you wrote. I hate people in real life, I prefer to meet them on line.

                            I have plenty of real life friends but on Facebook:

                            I keep in touch with over 30 of my high school classmates of 47 years ago and I do get together with many of them every year the Friday before the Indy 500. One year I counted them coming back from 14 states as far flung as CA, FL and CT. Standing reservation at Grindstone Charley's on Crawfordsville Rd in Speedway, IN where you can get a BPT with my name on it.

                            I keep in touch with my family scattered about in MN VA, NC, TX, IN, WI, MI, NY, MA to name a few places.

                            I keep in touch with many online friends dating back to the pioneering day of the early 80s.

                            I keep in touch with my roadfood friends here on a different social level.

                            As a retiree I still keep in touch with many of my old workmates and had lunch with some just last week.

                            As an RV advocate and traveler of the country I have made friends with many people all over the country with a like interest and we use Facebook to organize rallies and socials to get together a couple of times per year with our camper vans.

                            I even friended my barber on board the USS Puget Sound 40 years ago.

                            Tell me how else you can keep up a varied social interaction nationally as efficiently as Facebook. As trivial as Facebook can seem on the surface, if you tear away the facade you discover what makes people interesting. I enjoy the interaction. I did once post, "I'm sitting on the patio" imitating the TV commercial but most of the time I do try to post something I hope people might find interesting.

                              As Dayydd has so well said , there are many many useful ( as well  as many silly) applications for facebook. Why post something nasty about something you obviously don't know anything about? Just like this website it is used by many many people in a variety of ways.

                                My friends and family are all back in Ireland so Facebook is absolutely perfect for catching up on what they've been up to and sharing photos, etc and vice versa for them.  It's also given me the opportunity to catch up with people I otherwise would have lost touch with as well as give me the opportunity to get acquainted with people who share the same interests as me, the main one being cars which has led to a few little get togethers. :)

                                  You don't sound like Michael Hoffman.

                                  You have a miscontrued notion of the point of Facebook. It's not a friend-making website. It was designed to help you keep in touch with your current friends. And should you make new ones along the way, so much the better.

                                      skbob: It's hard for me to "get a life outside". As you can see, I'm typing this post at 5:57 AM and am just about to get back into bed again. I have two jobs and no time to get a life outside anymore -- haven't for the past three years. I deliver the paper in the middle of the night when many others are asleep, then get up and do it all over again at my day job (you know, the one with the 401k). The only time I get a life outside is on my precious Sundays...date day! You won't see me on facebook or anyplace else online on Sundays.
                                       
                                      Also don't forget that some people really are homebound. I know a few RFers are.
                                       
                                      I forgot to mention I've met quite a few RFers in person...it's not easy these days, though.
                                       
                                      I will look for you, Davydd, as well as your group. Anybody wants to get my real last name for Facebookin', PM me here. I have lots of great food pictures I import in from my flickr as often as I can.

                                        As of this morning I am now friends with IndyRick and Harriet. They can now read about my backyard rutting buck report.

                                          I hate people in real life, I prefer to meet them on line.


                                          I hate most people online, too.  I find it easier to just hate everyone equally - that way I am sure I don't confuse who I am supposed to like and who I am supposed to hate.

                                              I have 2 Twitter accounts:

                                              Personal: @im_X1
                                              Milwaukee Ethnic Restaurants Examiner (writer): @MKErestaurants

                                              I have a Facebook page, if you want me to add you, send me a PM. 

                                              There's also the new The Contingent FB page, an offshoot of the Roadfood FB page.

                                              Also, don't forget to join the Roadfood Festival page on FB, as well.

                                                I don't do Twitter, as I fail to see the point entirely.  It's like a bigger version of setting your status in Yahoo Messenger, near as I can tell.

                                                Facebook I'm on, but there is not one of my 90-ish friends that I do not actually know personally.  As in...I don't use Facebook to meet friends, I use it as a way to keep in touch with several people I wouldn't have much chance to talk with otherwise due to schedules or geography or simply not having enough to say to bother writing an entire letter or email.

                                                  I've met a lot of nice people on this website that I see regurlaly.
                                                  get a life OUTSIDE


                                                  I just realized how funny this is.  You've met people here, on a WEBSITE, and you're chastising others for doing the exact same thing?  Thank you SO much for my morning guffaw!

                                                    ...that is pretty funny!

                                                    i know i've communcated with my family more since joining FB last spring than in the previous 20 years together.  i am also getting to watch my grand kid in SC grow through pictures.  i can't say i have never met a girl there!  i met one recently who is very nice and lives sort of near me.  we would have never met in person, but since we share some interests our paths crossed on fb.

                                                    i just got a friend request the other day from a lady i really liked and worked with close to 10 years ago.  it was fun catching up.

                                                    TV is not for me.  Facebook is where i get my morning weather forecast.  the local morning weather guyi on my friends list and posts it early before i sit down with my coffee and toast.  i can see quickly if in need to look into the weather further.

                                                    on more than one occasion i knew my sales were going to be low that day, so i posted a plea for customers and people i know on fb came by and bought a dog for lunch! lol

                                                    until reading and posting in this thread, i didn't really think about how much i really use it....
