I hear you. I should spend less time on my social networks and more on genealogy.

I've located a couple of cousins via Facebook but I'm trying to wean myself down...Too much wasted time.

Yes, I belong to quite a few genealogy sites but to be honest, I don't check them often. They appear to be very helpful. emoticon

Yes I'm on Facebook. I follow several genealogy sites there too. I keep up with family and friends there.

Start with small steps and momentum will build. Celebrate moving in the direction of increased happiness now! With a plan and persistence moving towards your goals all things are possible! Adopt an attitude of gratitude. Be thankful for everything you have. It may not be what you want be show you're thankful for it anyway.
Live, laugh, love and find joy in life, Ramona

There is a post in the Genealogy group today that someone was asking how to get started with some free sites or ideas to research before paying for Ancestry. I am following that because I don't have the money for Ancestry.

If your friends think the way you do it is pretty good, but often their friends, who can see your responses will be totally against everything you say. I am starting to learn not to say anything because people who don't agree will put words where they were not said and will accuse me of anything under the son. Like I am a racist who wants all blacks murdered because I don't believe rioting and killing others is getting justice for anyone.

There are things that you can learn on there, though. I have joined some art groups and one genealogy group. The genealogy group had a post that said there are genealogy groups for just about every state. There are some people who will help you find information on your ancestors, some who say that you are wrong to take advantage of other people's availability to afford the really expensive sites to look things up.

It's just a toss up depending on what you are interested in. It is the only way I can find out what is going on with my relatives which is the reason I got on it. I only have one relative that calls, and he and one other will use email.

I have never been on Facebook. Is there any issues good or bad with joining that anyone has encountered?

I rarely use my phone during the day. It really annoys me when i am with friends and they have more interest in their phones than in me. One exception is a friend who uses her phone for work. She gets a pass because of her job.

I'm on Facebook, but I don't have it on my phone. I don't have my face stuck in my phone all the time like a lot of friends/co-workers. I use it to keep in touch with long distance relatives and also find events happening in the area

i haven't really gotten any good Genealogy info but I do like the quilt group I am on.

I also understand wading through all the garbage.

I am on Facebook and two genealogy groups, but I haven't found out much from either of them. One of them turned out to be strictly by a guy who charges for any information, though. I do see some information on there when someone posts to it.

I find a lot of great stuff there, but you do have to wade through a lot of crap to get to it. My internal ignore button gets a workout.

I am on several groups with Facebook and I also have friends that share information. I love SparkPeople because it is so positive. With the elections coming up I may just quit FaceBook so I am not subjected to all the craziness.

How about you?
