For those in college, how many of you have posted a profile on www.thefacebook.com ? At my school this network has been getting very popular.

I've been on it for a while, but (last time I looked!) there were only a few UK Universities on it, so I only have about 4 friends!

Sorry dear, no old people allowed. :biggrin:

(seriously though, you need a .edu email to be able to get into face book.)

Old people are allowed, as long as they are a professor or employee of some university. Of course, I don't know too many professors who would get on Facebook...:)

Does it end purely in @yourschool.edu? It may not register you as being part of the school if it's like @staff.yourschool.edu or something.

Can it distinguish between student and faculty/staff addresses? Some universities have different servers for student accounts with different domain names that'll give it away who is student vs non-student.

From the looks of it, it cannot. Although technically I do have an [email protected] email, I registered without the .student part and it works fine.

A bunch of my friends pestered me into joining and since then, have pretty much ignored me on it. Although I have found people on there who I havent seen for many many years.

That's ok, I belong to the oldgeezers.com network. Those of us that have controlable arthritis and can still type are a really fun group! :frown:

It allows both student and staff accounts. It even asks if you are student, alumni, undergrad, faculty, staff, ect..
It may be a different domain though since I put in the school name with out "college" after it (which my adress includes "college") and it took it. Ofcourse I wont get the confirmation e-mail because the adress isn't right. I can submit it to be added though I think.
