Lady, I think you need a Facebook fan listing for Earthsong. What do you think?

I've thought about it before... but it'd probably end up with my my facebook profile being friended by people I don't actually know. Maybe that sounds snotty, but I really do use it to keep in contact with people and I don't want to have to be turning down people - I feel rude. And it'd just be silly if I didn't join the group/fanlisting myself.

Plus I'm trying to keep my married name out of public intarweb knowledge.

(I already tried to make a "Lady Yates" profile... it won't let me)


So....... I dunno! Am I being weird about this or no?

No way, that makes a ton of sense. Facebook is pretty personal, I really actually hate it when strangers try to friend me. It weirds me out.

I've had people who didn't even like me in high school add me after I've not seen them for three years!

...Come to think of it I don't recall you ever mentioning Eric's surname. But I don't think you're being weird about this, my mother insisted I create a facebook profile for her and then she insisted I create a fake name similar to her own. Now that is weird.

XD I thought about going off a fake name, but so far Facebook is only for people I actually know, so it hasn't really mattered so far.

A compromise would be to make a profile of your maiden name, which is associated with Earthsong's production anyway, and keep your married name private, as you have been. but i don't know how FB's sign-up procedures work, so i'm not sure how feasible that is.

It should work, though it's been close to a year since I've created a facebook. I never use it, the site confuses me.

It's perfectly understandable that you don't want to use your married name, I don't think you'd hurt anyone's feelings b not using that one. I second space's idea.

Yeah, I didn't put my last name on Facebook for a long time. And I have no pity turning down complete strangers who friend me :P Granted, they're not my fans persay, just underclassmen from my HS who want to have college facebook friends.

I vote no crazy vibes from the Lady on this one.

Facebook is pretty personal for me, and I have no qualms about turning people away. You're not crazy, Lady. Smile I do like the idea of a group, though. And I'm fairly sure you can create a new profile with Lady Yates; after all, who are they to tell you your name isn't Lady? You'll just need a new e-mail. Smile

E-mail's easy, anyone will give it to you.

Or one of us could do it, and just mention that we're being a proxy to protect the Lady's anonymity.

But yeah, I've been friended by people I barely said two words two in high school. I think it happens to everyone.

While I think an Earthsong group would be a fun thing to have, but I can understand the Lady's reservations about mass-friending.

I've been friended by people who probably thought I was stark raving mad back in senior school and most of the time I don't even get a courtesy Wall post! (I STILL am stark raving mad, but that's neither here nor there as far I'm concerned. XP) But since I put up my security to crazy high, I've not really had that.

That having been said, I do use it mainly to keep up with the friends I have made out here, and to stay in touch with friends from home.

But perhaps like Cypher says, you can set up a dummy e-mail purely for Facebooking as Lady Yates, and therefore a dummy facebook account? I know someone at my university managed to set one up for a fictional character from one of our textbooks, so it must be doable.

I don't see it as something really personal myself, but I suppose I don't actually USE it for anything other than it's Email/PM functions. It's probably a bigger deal if one actually puts effort into maintaining one's profile with the current moods and whatnot...

Two out of three "friends" on that site I've never spoken a coherent statement to.

The thing I like about Facebook is how personal it can be-no crazy strangers knowing where my friends and I are headed this weekend for me, thank you very much. Turn them away, I say, turn them away! *waves a lit torch crazily about*

That's not to say I trust Facebook implicitly. Never, ever trust the Internet.

So yeah, I probably wouldn't join an Earthsong group, even if all you fine people were on it-it's all the coarse people I fear.

same here for me. I like who personal it is. though i have a few gaming friends on it. xD
I probobly wouldnt join it if it was made personally ^^:;

I have a myspace that doesnt have practicly any not known info on it because i dont like how unpersonal it is. Just like my LJ is set to friends more time than public (though i was so annoyed during my last one it is on public >.>;; )
