Baffled by Facebook

I'm not a complete tech moron, honest. I can figure things out reasonably well with the occasional assistance of my tech minded hubby. But I'm totally clueless on something that so many other people seem to understand- Facebook.

I have Myspace, it is easy. I recently made a Facebook profile. And now I'm getting invitations for things that are applications. If I click accept, I have to install something and click all of these preference boxes. How many applications are normal before I appear to be a teeny bopper application junky? Are applications cool? Uncool? Like email spam? I'm totally lost.

  1. I'm with you! I don't get it either! A friend emailed me her facebook profile to view, and to leave a comment I had to make my own profile. I mad e my profile and didn't have time to check it out and started getting a ll these messages from people wanting to be my friend. I don't really get the whole thing either. Is the point to actually connect with people or just look like you have a lot of friends. Cause most of the people just added me without any kind of comment or anything! Let me know if you make progress with it!

  2. Ditto! I have facebook too, but I don't like it. It's too confusing when it doesn't need to be.
