Join the new CoasterBuzz group! Seeing as how there wasn't a group already, I created one last night. So check it out :).

What is the point of having a coasterbuzz group in facebook?

Can we not get all our communications done here?

Seriously, I am not flaming, I just want to know what the point would be?

Eww Karaaa
I miss you!1

What is the point of having CoasterBuzz.com when we can send snail mail to each other or use the phone?

I find nothing wrong with a Coasterbuzz group on Facebook. For those of us *who have to pay out the *** for long distance* it is a great way to visualize friends and get to know them as people outside of roller coasters. And I don't see why people are complaining when they have an extra...and free...source to communicate with people with the same passion.

This much I'll say...

Facebook and Myspace certainly don't favor the ugly.
Or those who somehow imagine that they aren't.

That having been said, and considering that not everyone here talks about rollercoasters all the time...what's the harm? Really?

Nonsense, the four-year-older average age of Facebook users is noticeable, and the fact that they don't allow you to combine pink, orange and yellow on a page with some MP3 of some hack lame garage band audio, makes it an actual useful tool for social networking.

Now accepting friends just to say you have friends, that's lame. If I don't know you, I won't accept the invite, so don't bother.

Good grief...technology is just passing me by. I finally got DSL at the house and checked out what folks were talking about.

MySpace? I don't get it. What is the point?

YouTube? Why was that sight worth anything at all? Isn't it just America's Funniest Home Videos online?

Perhaps my age is catching up with me at last.

Oooh. Let me revise my statement.

I meant ugly PEOPLE, not ugly pages. Myspace definitely rules the ugly page category.

Of course, you realize that like rock-and-roll, rap and almost every colorful idiom present in the English language, Myspace is yet another theft from the black man. I'll have you know BlackPlanet sported gratuitously fugly-ized personal pages loooong before Myspace was Myspace. Damn them AND Vanilla Ice!

A 'Playa sighting?!?

On topic, I dont see the harm in a facebook group though, admittedly, I'm a total newb when it comes to using the my-tube, you-space, stuff. Though I do have a couple of 'fun facts' for y'all

The creators of You-tube are alums, like me, of U of Illinois- Urbana Champaign.

The creator of blackplanet is so light-skinned with 'good' hair that he could "pass".

If it wasnt for blackplanet, I probably would have never met the illustrious 'Lady T'.

I have "Fear of a Black Planet"....

But I'm not afraid.... ;)

You know, Live Journal could have been Facebook or MySpace, but they were so hung up on their high moral values about advertising and a dead scripting language that it never went mainstream.

Tell that to Google. YouTube is huge and Google doesn't make a $1.2 billion purchase if they aren't sure of themselves.
