Red face A bloke walks into a bar....

Hi all!

As a newbie here, and trying to get my head around how it works, somebody suggested I view it as a bar. A bar full of personable and friendly strangers. So that's what I'll try to do!

Pint of Hobgoblin please!

Having been nagged by my kids to embrace Facebook I finally took the plunge a couple of years ago and was doing fine until my missus (who was not, and still isn't, my 'friend' there) came across a less than flattering post! As a result I set up a John Doe account where I can speak my mind. I invited a few trusted friends to join me.

Why am I relating this? It's to illustrate that it took me quite a while to get the hang of fb - but now I have. And now I have to start at the bottom of the class again here!

So go easy on me folks. I'm not good at walking into a bar and striking up a conversation with a stranger! Even one who I trust to be friendly.

Gaz

Hi Gaz, welcome!

It's not so hard here and the people are friendly. Just ask if you need help. Have a great time!

If you don't want your missus to find you, perhaps consider a different image for your avatar and use your pic for your album on the profile page (once you get to 150 posts). Anyone can come here and see these posts, doesn't have to be a member.

I reckon the chances of my missus coming across me here are pretty low! But thanks for the heads-up anyway.

One of the difficulties I'm having is that I have no idea of the gender or location of who I'm talking to! I did look for some sort of colour code for boys & girls but haven't spotted one yet! And while people put their location as "over the hill and far away" that's no help either! (Surely "Female, South East" - for example - retains sufficient anonymity?)

So I thought I'd put mine up to help!

Most including me (male) seek some anonymity, as you never know what kind of personalities you'll run into on the wild net. They can always share info after getting to know someone well. Some also wish to keep the interactions to the virtual world and would not give their real location. The avatar usually gives an idea of male or female, not always.

You need to make lots of posts. Get ye to 150 posts and you will be able to see people's profile page, what they make public anyway. The gender is there. Also, check the Site Rules and Information subforum. Much useful info there.

Good luck!
