    in person. The one instance I heard of it being effective was when a mid to late 30 something woman passed away after being in Hospice for several weeks. Friends were able to make supportive comments on her page for husband and daughter.

    I am getting really tired of being asked to 'like' a business. Especially when it is part of getting a coupon or discount.

    Feeling like I am becoming more and more a crochety old lady. I don't have a lawn, and when I did, I NEVER yelled at anyone to get off  ;)

      The one and only reason I joined FB was to be able to view my sister's FB page after she suddenly and unexpectedly passed away several years ago in her late 30's. By the time that I joined her page had already been hidden by her husband, but I stayed on because friends of hers had set up a memorial page.

      For such uses I can see being on FB. But for the trivial stuff, I have better things to do with my time. Plus, in my case, because of why I joined, engaging in trivial chit chat just seems disrespectful to my sister and the people who honored her memory on FB and elsewhere, so I decline to do so.
